Latest boatbuilder endorsement highlights Verwood company’s capability to supply leading genset solutions for reliable operation around the world
Fischer Panda UK’s variable speed iSeries 5000i Neo and 8000i generators have been selected by Fairline as the cost option gensets for the new F//Line 33 express cruiser.
Strengthening its partnership with the British luxury yacht manufacturer, the latest collaboration adds to the current agreement for Fischer Panda UK to supply its Panda PMS 10,000i model as standard for the Fairline Targa 43 OPEN.
The F//Line 33, the latest exciting day boat from Fairline, is designed by the 2018 World Yacht Trophies Yacht Designer of the Year winner, Alberto Mancini, and will launch at this year’s Cannes Yachting Festival in September.
Fairline will offer the light and compact Fischer Panda 5000i Neo generator as an option for new owners in all parts of the world except the Americas, where the option will be the 8000i in 120V. Both models will provide F//Line 33 customers with the latest variable speed technology and industry-leading super-silent operation to run on-board systems and appliances, and charge batteries.
Chris Fower, Sales and Marketing Director, Fischer Panda UK, said: “As the current preferred generator supplier for the Fairline Targa 43 OPEN, we are pleased to further extend our partnership with Fairline. Confirmation of this exclusive agreement for the F//Line 33 really highlights our capabilities to supply multi-voltage, multi-frequency generators to fulfil the requirements of global boatbuilders. It is a significant endorsement for our iSeries generators and evidence that our leading quiet, light, environmentally-friendly and fuel-efficient systems reflect Fairline’s high standards of design and build quality.”
Fairline’s Concept Manager, Andrew Pope, said: “When designing a smaller express cruiser like the F//Line 33, selecting efficient and lightweight provisions is an important part of the process. Fischer Panda generators are compact and, coupled with their variable speed design, allow the generator to operate at a much quieter level than their fixed speed competitors, whilst also increasing the service life of the working parts as they are operating more efficiently. This in turn provides a long-lasting and non-intrusive experience for Fairline’s customers.”
Drawing on Fairline’s heritage of producing fun and exciting day boats, the F//Line 33 is ideal for summer-time entertaining with a large forward sun bed and a spacious aft seating area or second sun bed. The cruiser is configured with twin Volvo Penta V6-240 petrol engines, but for even greater performance the option of either twin Volvo V8-430s or twin Mercruiser 8.2 litre petrol V8s are offered. A diesel option utilising twin D3-220s from Volvo is also available.
Part of Fischer Panda’s variable speed iSeries ‘Perfect Power’ range, Fischer Panda UK’s environmentally friendly Panda 5000i Neo uses Fischer Panda’s in-house designed water-cooled FPE320 single cylinder diesel engine. Both the 5000i Neo and 8000i are ideal for boat owners with limited space who are looking for independence away from marinas or shore power. They are fitted with the renowned Fischer Panda sound insulation and water cooling.
Like all iSeries Fischer Panda inverter generators featuring variable speed control, the 5000i Neo and 8000i are characterised by their high efficiency, quiet operation and compact design. The next generation technology means the speed of the diesel engine is adjusted according to the user’s changing power requirements while the output voltage always remains constant from the PMGI inverter. This not only significantly improves fuel efficiency, but also benefits the environment as the engine is always working correctly loaded thereby operating at its most efficient with reduced wear and emissions in comparison with a traditional generator with fixed speed RPM.
