Fairline 36 Turbo

< Back to search


The Fairline Turbo 36 was a landmark boat not only for Fairline but the boating industry as a whole. Renowned for its great handling and performance, they also use shaft drives to improve reliability and reduce maintenance costs. Dream Catcher is a desirable all-white version fitted with the preferred Volvo Penta TAMD60C 255hp engines and benefits from having recently installed bow and stern thrusters with remote control for easy maneuvering. She is a rare and desirable find, an un-messed with clean and original boat, offered at a very realistic price to allow for general servicing and upgrading of some equipment to her next owner's requirements.
