The Modern Classic - The roots of the Company started in 1985. Mr. Albert Obrist, a Swiss industrialist and owner of a large collection of Ferraris, restored under his supervision to original condition, bought the Fife designed schooner Altair.

General info

In late 2000 Paul Spooner joined the company in time to be the Naval Architect for the restoration of Mariquita. Before the completion of this last surviving member of the 19Metre class Paul designed a long keel Bermudan cutter for a client requiring a specific design for ease of handling by a small crew for long distance cruising. This yacht attracted great interest in the 2005 Southampton Boat show before being handed over to her owner for a trans-Atlantic crossing to Antigua.

The slow decrease of restoration work over the last few years has led the company to start developing a new Spirit of Tradition range of yachts. These yachts, built using modern timber construction techniques, are designed with modern underwater form and appendages but above the waterline show elegant classic lines and show case Fairlie's skill in high quality woodwork. These vessels are designed by Paul Spooner whose long association and study of Fife's work have enabled him to design using curves and shapes that are truly pleasing to the eye.

These new yachts boast a performance to windward envied by Owners of classic yachts. The cost of construction of a yacht is dependant on the volume and displacement so Fairlie can build these yachts at a considerable saving to a long keeled yacht
