FAIRLINE’S TARGA 48 OPEN
With a nod towards Mediterranean flair, the British builder presents its latest in a very popular model line.
Long noted for a quality build, racy profiles, and sparkling performance, Fairline now adds another exciting boat to its Targa line. The T48 OPEN is an elegantly appointed two cabin, double en-suite model geared towards the design trend of spacious sociable areas for entertaining inside and out. The model offers an electric canvas roof as standard, as well as a garage for optional jet tender and submersible bathing platform.
For the kind of performance Fairline delivers, as well as the ease of maneuverability while docking or in tight quarters situations, the Targa 48 OPEN offers a pair of Volvo Penta IPS600 D6-435 Diesel at 435 mhp each and, according to the company, is capable of powering the boat to a 32 knot turn of speed.
The Volvo Penta IPS with joystick control is matched to a dynamic new hull designed specifically for the range, making significant use of new technologies and industry-leading production systems. This has ensured the new Targa offers the highest levels of quality and performance, with considerable weight reduction, exceptional engineering and excellent sea-keeping – everything you would expect from a Fairline.
Oliver Winbolt, Head of Marketing at Fairline Boats, commented: “Fairline enjoyed a strong year in the US market in 2013 and we anticipate building on this in the year ahead. We’re looking forward to launching the Targa 48 OPEN to the US market and showcasing the best of British to visitors at the show. Our new 48 foot models have been created using the very latest technology and we’ll be welcoming Fairline owners and prospective customers onboard to experience it for themselves.”
There’s space, and lots of it. Beautifully considered sociable areas, luxurious and stunning in their simplicity. The cabin layout features a fabulous mid master with an optional sofa that converts into an additional bed, there’s a forward double cabin that can convert to a V-berth and the option of a third cabin in lieu of a dinette. The perfectly formed galley enjoys a tall fridge/freezer and pull out larder.
Large panoramic windows add to the sense of light and space in the generously well-appointed saloon. Moving out to the cockpit you can take a seat or stretch out on the large sunpad, with the luxury of being able to control how much sunlight you get by simply activating the powered retractable cockpit cover. The integral garage is home for the optional jet tender and the option list extends to a hydraulic passarelle and a submersible powered bathing platform.
