The eSprit was the focus of Fairline’s Concept Cinema at the 2014 London Boat Show, an all-new feature of the Fairline stand. The concept model offered visitors an exciting proposition for the future of sustainable motor boating, without compromising Fairline’s class-leading styling and performance.

The Fairline eSprit incorporates sustainable materials in construction and design. Bio-derived epoxy resins with needle punched flax fibres are used in construction and the interior features ecoyarn upholstery fabrics, specially treated with a waterproofing plasma process. Recycled synthetic teak is used for the eSprit’s decking and the concept incorporates a solar panelled T-top that folds away to cover bow seating when not in use.


The concept boat showcases an ergonomically optimised interior and includes a Multifunctional Steering Position with paddle throttles and integral LED control display. This allows chartplotter, radar and system information to be displayed in the optimum viewing position.

Power options for the Fairline eSprit consist of a 400hp diesel engine, capable of 30 knots in diesel mode, coupled to an electric motor. Silent running or sustained low speed cruising is possible at 5 knots in electric mode.

Andy Pope, Design Manager at Fairline Boats, commented: “We used the design process to explore what a sustainable future could look like for Fairline. The size of the boat, the materials used, the necessary manufacturing processes; everything was put to the sustainability test. We’ve been amazed at the positive response to what started as an adventure in concept design. The Fairline eSprit really seems to have caught the imagination and futuristic design touches like the control display on the steering wheel have been very well received.”
