Garmin provides navigation to Fairline

Garmin, the global leader in satellite navigation, is delighted to announce that it is providing marine electronic equipment to international luxury performance motor yacht manufacturer Fairline Boats.

Fairline, a leading force in the luxury motor yacht market, has been designing and manufacturing boats for more than forty years. Today, the Fairline range includes three distinct marques; the sociable Targa, the Phantom flybridge series and the luxurious Squadron models.
Garmin, celebrating its 20th Anniversary this year, will be providing an extensive selection of electronic equipment to Fairline for standard fit throughout its yacht range.

Garmin marine products to be fitted across the Fairline range include the touchscreen GPSMAP™ 5000 chartplotter series, high definition radar, the GHP™ 10 Autopilot with unique Shadow Drive™ and VHF radios.


Nigel Craine, Marine OEM Sales Manager for Garmin said: “The association of these world class marques brings together two brands that work constantly to innovate and provide products of the highest standards and superior levels of quality.

“The Garmin marine family of products provide the latest technology and detailed design, whether you want to use our GPSMAP™ 5012 chartplotters to overlay radar onto your marine charts or cruise along with minimal effort using the GHP™ 10 autopilot.”

Miles Moorhouse, Head of Marketing at Fairline said: “We will be introducing Garmin products into the standard specifications for each of our motor yachts from the 2010 model year onwards. We are passionate about consistently delivering the highest standards of service, design and quality across the entire Fairline range and look forward to working closely with Garmin.”
