Broker's Comments

The Fairline Carrera is undoubtedly a classic from the late 80's Fairline stable. Very few of its near rivals at the time could boast the same level of cockpit and interior space or indeed the fit out quality on a 24ft boat.
This example seriously defies its age, the condition of the upholstery in the cockpit and cabin is 1st class, and the woodwork in the cabin maintains it workshop finish. She is fitted with a quality electric windlass and a holding tank. The boat also benefits from a current BSS certificate.
You cannot help but go back to the space that the Carrera boasts; its nearly 10ft beam not only provides an amazing stability to the boat but gives a genuine sense of space when you walk into the cabin.
Both have been serviced in 2006 by a local Volvo Penta dealer. This boat will suit anybody looking for a spacious weekender for inland and coastal cruising. Fitted with twin engines there is the added peace of mind when at sea, but she has the benefit of also being equally at home on inland waterways. This boat is one of the cleanest Carrera's on the market.
