Fairline are one of the best boat builders in the uk, they pioneered the use of isothalmic resins, meaning their boats are very well made, strong and very rarely suffer with osmosis. Its is true when they say they don't make them like this anymore. This boat is in very good condition for its age, the Gelcoat is in better condition than a lot of the newer boats in the marina. I always leave it polished to protect it from the sun and the engines flushed with fresh water when leaving it between visits.
The blue and grey deck stripes were replaced 5 years ago and I replaced the flybridge stripes this Easter so she is looking on top of her game. I take a lot of pleasure when people comment what a great looking and well maintained boat she is.
Corniches came in various layouts and engine options; this boat has the preferred 200 hp Volvo Pentas on Traditional Shaft Drives (never buy a boat over 10 years old on outdrives unless you have deep pockets) The engines had 350 hours when I purchased and they are showing now 1500 hours . I have maintained the boat myself, changing the oil twice a year while in the uk (once before winter layup and again at the start of the season) on top of all the usual servicing requirements.At 3200 revs she will cruise all day at between 18 - 21 knots depending on load. At a more frugal 1500 revs she will make 8 knots. The bullet proof 6 cylinder Volvos sound like a sewing machine and when up on the flybridge she is very quite and smooth.
