Fairline Boats, a British luxury motor yacht manufacturer, will be adding to the Targa range with the upcoming introduction of the all-new twin cabin, two en-suite Targa 45 OPEN, scheduled for launch during Spring 2013.
The new season kicks off this month. Nine boats will line up in Doha for the Pearl Qatar Grand Prix, 14-17 March, the opening round of the 2012 UIM Class 1 World Powerboat Championship, marking the sport’s return to Doha for the first time since 2009 with the Qatar Marine Sports Federation (QMSF), the event organiser, moving the location from the relative shelter of Doha Bay to the more open water and hoped-for rougher conditions to be found off the Pearl of Qatar.
The longest production yacht ever made in Britain, with the largest resin-infused hull ever moulded, the new Princess 40M promises to make quite a splash when she is launched in the Spring. Hull number 1, Imperial Princess, is in the final stages of build in a brand new, purpose-built assembly hangar in Plymouth’s historic South Yard. Combining an impressive gross tonnage, with a sleek and purposeful profile, the 40M will offer six-star accommodation for up to 12 guests, with well-appointed cabins for up to eight crew and the largest internal volume in her class.
