Fair Marquess - Under Starters Orders For 2019


Recommended Posts

It has been suggested to them by people in the industry that they apply some black vinyl graphics to match the shape of the window on the other side as that does look a bit better, but it didn't get done for whatever reason...

I've always assumed the styling was based on one of these..

I can't believe how incredibly rude some of you are being. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Perhaps you don't consider those of us prepared to pay for a bit of luxury on our holiday as prope

It was there all the time, the official publicity shot (okay some Photo Shopping has been done) but we all missed it..The single blue fender to honour me.

The interior is impressive, actually. Mrs OG was very keen on the look of the bedroom and shower room on Zircon Emblem (essentially the same but a Haines fitout).

I reckon Zircon will be a nicer boat, though NBD are not half bad.

I did point out that it was 2.5 times the price of Major Gem for a long weekend, though, and suddenly Major Gem is back in favour for some reason?

We had Zircon last year. Beware there is a very deep step in through the rear door. And the table in the sitting area gets in the way a bit. Ferry Marina apparently didn’t do the fit out on this one according to an engineer we were talking to. But they have another very similar boat without the table there. 

Lovely boat but I would take Fair Marquess if I was going again and wanting that style of boat.

Zircon was built by Haines and they did all of the work to redesign the moulding and make it more appealing.

It's not a boat I'll ever desire to own, but the aft cabin and shower room do appeal.

The throttle cable snapped while we were on board, I think that’s what it was. Couldn’t switch from the upper helm back to the lower one and then couldn’t engage gear at all. The yard were great but they had quite a job to pull the boat apart to fit the new cable, which is when they remarked that they hadn’t done the fit out.

I had hoped that boat was the first of many to be built by Haines for Ferry but sadly it wasn't to be.

Since the demise of the likes of Brister Craft (who built boats for many yards), there's sadly not really been many yards doing hire-spec fitouts for others which unfortunately means that some yards which don't really have the talent are trying to do things themselves and the results are rarely awesome.

There's always Silverline, though. They build tons of stuff (usually it doesn't have their name on it) for others.
