British boat builder Fairline Yachts will launch a new Targa 48 Open this summer – with a substantial number of forward orders already received. This will be followed by a Targa 48 Gran Turismo, which will be available to customers in the latter part of 2013. We at WSB check out what the new comer will bring to the range.
Both will be powered by Volvo IPS and have been designed to match customer trends and requirements. Fairline Boats has developed a specific hull for the IPS powered models and made significant use of new technologies and industry-leading production systems. This has ensured the new 48s offer the very highest levels of quality and performance, with significant weight reduction, exceptional engineering and excellent sea-keeping guaranteed – everything you would expect from a Fairline.
Fairline has developed the new Targa models with careful attention to global customer feedback. As a result, customers have an array of options to ensure each is perfectly suited to different markets. Both the Open and GT will be available with variable two or three cabin layouts and owners will enjoy plentiful storage throughout, considered layouts and practical yet clever touches.
Targa 48 Open – launching in summer 2013
The Targa 48 Open is a beautifully appointed twin cabin, double en-suite model which is geared towards the design trend of spacious sociable areas – both inside and out. The Targa 48 Open features an electric canvas roof as standard, as well a garage for optional jet tender and a submersible platform. Accommodation below deck includes a mid master and a forward double, with V berth conversion, as well as a galley with full height fridge/freezer and spacious saloon/dinette with optional sofa bed or third cabin.
Targa 48 Gran Turismo – launching late 2013
The Targa 48GT will feature a glazed electric hard top roof with a spacious, sociable upper deck, J-shaped cockpit seating with table, and optional sunbed conversion. The saloon offers plentiful seating, in addition to a well-appointed helm station with twin seats. The lower deck has three cabins as standard and there is an optional lower saloon/dinette in lieu of the third cabin layout.
The new additions to the Fairline range give added appeal and depth and will surely continue the brand appeal to the wider market.
