The Fairmile Yard became famous during the Second World War by building various different classes of fast launches: torpedo boats, gun-boats and escort boats. All of them were well crafted, light and sturdy and very fast. They were the well known Fairmile classes A, B, C and D. After the war, the Yard built boats for the British Administration and afterwards they started building Fishermen, designed by the French Naval Architect Guéroult. It was the 24 m. loa. Fair Isle class of boats that obtained a huge success as they arrived at the good moment, when fishermen were about to replace their older vessels. When the building rithm of Fishermen started to weak, at the Berwick Yard (on the Scottish East coast) they considered building luxurious yachts. They already had the basics: a well trained workforce and a hull design well tested in rough conditions. This was the starting point for a class of blue water yachts of which nine were built between 1962 and 1972. They had different dimensions through adding frames forward and aft to the basic design and one unit was even conceived as a... sailing boat!

On the second half of the first decade of 2000, Tanit benefited from an important refit, that slightly modified her exterior shape, not touching however her hull lines. Her name was changed to Fairmile, to honor her building Yard.
