Lux­ury boat builder Fair­line Yachts is cre­at­ing 30 jobs as it looks to ex­pand pro­duc­tion.

The va­can­cies at the Oundle­based man­u­fac­turer will in­clude car­pen­ters, elec­tri­cal fitters, en­gi­neers, GRP moul­ders, painters and as­sem­blers.

The new re­cruits will bring the to­tal num­ber of staff em­ployed at the Oun­dle fac­tory to 450 peo­ple.

The news comes hot on the heels of suc­cess­ful show­ings of its new yachts at in­ter­na­tion­ally im­por­tant boat shows at Cannes, in France, and Southamp­ton.

Emma Bar­ton, head of HR at Fair­line Yachts, said: “This is an ex­cit­ing time for Fair­line Yachts.

“We are in­creas­ing pro­duc­tion sup­port at Oun­dle, where our mod­els up to 60 feet in length will con­tinue to be made. This suc­cess is thanks to a world beat­ing prod­uct port­fo­lio, and a highly skilled and ded­i­cated work­force.”

Rus­sell Cur­rie, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Fair­line Yachts.
