Restorations, classic yacht replicas, traditionally built new yachts.
“There are the hanging arts, decorative arts, sculpture, ballet ……….But there is a superb tradition of functional arts…objects that are cherished and more importantly used. The classic yacht is the choice of a growing number of people who have the double pleasure to cherish and use a piece of history”
Lance Lee, USA.
‘Fairlie’ is the name of the famous shipyard and spiritual home of the classic yachts designed by William Fife and is the adopted name for the Fairlie restoration programme. These magnificent restored examples of ‘functional art’ travel the world to compete in the most spectacular classic sailing regattas bringing together a special breed of owners who cherish these fine classic sailboats. Many owners extend their passion for restoration to many other areas of functional arts, including classic cars and collectable aircraft.
