Fairline Carrera built in 1988 with twin Volvo AQ171 167hp petrol engines. Lying Poole. The Fairline Carrera is a great boat for comfortable family weekends afloat; the re-assuring handling on the water and generous accommodation give the impression you are on a much larger craft. This is a very well presented example of the Fairline Carrera.

We have owned "Great Escape" for some four years, during which time she has been used regularly in the Poole and Solent area. She has had her cockpit seats and fascias recovered in 2011 and her covers are about six years old. She has a winter cockpit cover.
During the time we have owned "Great Escape", she has been regularly maintained by Power Marine and Auto in Cobb's Quay, her service history is available to be seen.
Overall, we believe "Great Escape" to be a very clean and tidy boat. We are selling her to concentrate our spare time on sailing our Yachting World Dayboat.
The Fairline Carrera has all the attributes you would expect from a fine British built boat; superb sea keeping, practically laid out and sociable cockpit, roomy cabin with generous stowage and finally, decent deck hardware (cleats etc) and foredeck access.
"Great Escape" is a very well presented example of her type.
