The 2024 Motorboat awards were revealed on January 23rd 2024. In the Flybridges up to 60 feet category the winner was Fairline Squadron 58.
J&J Design contributed naval architecture, structural engineering and conceptual elements.
The judges were especially enthusiastic about the deck innovative layout, in their words:
“The stern arrangement on the Squadron 58 is a true game-changer. It features a cockpit with a glazed transom, modular furniture, twin drop-down terraces and a fold-out bar with a pair of stools that can be relocated to the port siFurther aft, a “Slide & Hide” submersible bathing platform enables you to extend the deck at the push of a button. There’s also a transom galley back here, with an ice bucket and an optional slide-out barbecue. You can even spec the crew cabin as a day heads, which would enable this superyacht-style beach club to function as a self-contained social hub.Things are equally enticing on the inside. The playful integration of angles transforms the ambience of the new 58, creating quietly diverting points of interest that its competitors simply don’t possess.”
The Fairline Squadron 58 is another great project in the line of the long and fruitful cooperation between our office and the Fairline in-house design team. We are extremely happy to be able to provide support in the growing prosperity of this builder – possibly the finest of the British traditional boatbuilding quality successfully competing in today’s markets.
