Fairline 23 Holiday boat

I had a Corniche on 200hp 290 duo props for 6 years.

Best option. forget shafts.

Corniche too short for shafts and you can not do simple engine check without taking boat to bits.

My top end was 31knots log

cruise 24kts @ 1.6mpg

on a calm day would cruise at 26knts log

I had one trip 185 nm where we cruised at 26 log and 25-28 gps (tide with us most of the way)

Shaft boat will maybe cruise at 20/22 and 1.2/1.4 mpg.

I went to the Farne Islands with a corniche on shafts and he was much slower and used far more fuel.

Corniche on 200 hp 290 duo props really good boat.

We went to Amsterdam, Paris, Northern France and Channel Islands 3 times, one season we did the Farne Islands and the Channel Islands in the same year and all that time had very few problems.

We did meet the odd wave or two and she was happy ( I wasnt always)

We cruised with larger boats that slowed down before us in poor seas

Only fault I had was prop blades would fall off and I would change props at sea ( 15 mins ) so you need to carry spare 4 blade props and spanner.

I should ponit out Shaft boats fetch about Ј4000 more but that is good news. you get the better boat cheaper. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

I’ve got one if you have any questions.

Go for diesel with shafts.


The 41A (its the A thats important, I think they are 41s’) engines smoke and you get soot on the transom etc, mine are A’s. Apparently the B’s are better!

There are three layouts, master fwd cabin with a walk around double (almost), twin bunk side cabin with double fwd and dinette that has the fwd cabin and the dinette converts to a double. I think all of them have a convertable in the main saloon. I may have a layout picture for all three somewhere.

Only problem they have over any other boat is the tanks were steel and rust away. They may tell you its an engine out job to replace them but that is not true, you can lift all of the saloon floor and just squeeze them out. I think on newer boats they were stainless steel.

MBM did a report on one last year about Feb — Mar time.

Good luck.

Two very different views Peter

There are solenoids on the 41’s that get neglected but can be renewed for Ј160 each that should solve 95% of start up problem

Stainless Tanks can be a serious problem in a fast boat or any boat that is transported by road.
