FAIRLINE F LINE 33 OUTBOARD
Motor Boat & Yachting|October 2021
With demand for outboards going through the roof, Fairline has made them an option on its sporty F-Line 33. How does this version compare to the inboard original? We head to a windswept Ipswich to find out

Casting off on a biting cold February day in Ipswich is probably not what Alberto Mancini had in mind when he designed the Fairline F33. This outboard-powered version of Fairline’s achingly handsome sportsboat is more likely to be found charging between the Balearics islands, swivelling heads as it goes. But if it can prove itself in the brown suburbs of the North Sea then it’s off to a good start.

Most of this boat is identical to the inboard model launched in 2019. There is the same deck layout, a wet bar with sink, grill, cooling and storage space and a driver-focused helm that sits well below the rakish side screens that rise and fall so attractively from the topsides.

Below decks there is an open-plan dinette that converts into a double bed with another double berth amidships. Finished to Fairline’s usual high standard, the sleeping space is probably a little too cosy for weeks on board but perfect for when day trips melt into long, lazy weekends .

Eicher heavy-duty truck range Uncompromising focus on uptime

The year gone by was undoubtedly the toughest year one would have seen in many decades. The pandemic that started in March 2020 brought the whole country, including the commercial vehicle industry and over 10 million trucks, to a screeching halt — paralysing cargo movement completely. While the economy has now started reviving, various industries are still facing the adverse effects of last year. Hence, it is critical now for every sector, including the transportation industry, which is the backbone of the economy and the barometer of the economic health of the country, to work harder and non-stop to make up for the lost time.

No-till: better soil at less cost

One sure way of reducing soil degradation is to cut down on tillage. Numerous crops can be grown using the no-till approach, and many farmers who have done so will testify that it cuts costs and improves rain penetration in the soil. The soil also holds more water; in fact, no-till soils generally show drought stress two weeks later than tilled soils do.
