The Targa 43 Reborn - Fairline unveils their all-new Targa 43 OPEN

 

Luxury British motor yacht manufacturer, Fairline Yachts, unveils imagery and the specification of its stunning Targa 43 OPEN following the announcement of the all-new model earlier this year.

Set to launch in Spring 2018, the Targa 43 OPEN express cruiser is set to become the spiritual successor to the original, and phenomenally popular, Targa 43 with almost 300 produced by Fairline between 1997-2005 – a model which remains highly sought after in the brokerage market.

This sleek and stylish cruiser is emphasised by an eye-catching, tapered hull window that accentuates the dynamic character of this sporty Targa model. Taking inspiration from Alberto Mancini’s design of the recently launched Targa 63 GTO, the Targa 43 OPEN features the leading edge styling that is synonymous with Mancini and this new age of Fairline Yachts.

Head of Design at Fairline Yachts, Andrew Pope, says, “The Targa 43 was a sensationally popular model for Fairline and we are confident that the new Targa 43 OPEN will be a more-than worthy successor. It really maximises its day boat credentials, offering garage space to accommodate a Williams 285 TurboJet, a high-low platform with 300kg lifting capacity - ideal for a Sea-Doo Spark - and an expansive, social cockpit space with outdoor bar and twin pilot seats at the helm. As with all our boats, we have tried hard to retain a true connection with the water.

“Although this model is smaller than our current Targa 48, she does not lack in either space or headroom – Mancini has drawn inspiration from the Targa 63 GTO interior, ensuring a light and spacious feel that works seamlessly between spaces. With the option of having the owner’s cabin forward or mid ship, the Targa 43 OPEN stays true to our desire to create a boat based on the owners’ requirements, suited to them and how they go boating.”

The new Targa 43 OPEN’s cockpit boasts a large sun bed over the tender garage, expansive cockpit seating and comfortable companion seating opposite the helm - the perfect arrangement for maximising enjoyment on board. There are a choice of twin engine options from Volvo, the D6-375 with sterndrives and two IPS options, the IPS500 and IPS600  - the latter expected to achieve a minimum fully-loaded speed of 34 knots. There is also the ability to add a Seakeeper NG5 gyroscopic stabiliser, ensuring the highest level of comfort on board.

The Targa 43 OPEN is set to launch in Spring 2018.

The UK-based company has been building family and sports cruisers for almost 40 years of its history, embarking on the build of even larger craft in the early 1990s.

Fairline’s first Targa was launch in 1985. That boat, the Targa 33 set a benchmark for the modern express cruiser and helped establish the brand in markets outside of Europe. Much more recently, Fairline launched the 48 Series in 2014. The innovative design incorporated both resin-infusion technology and a new monocoque deck construction, as well as a unique hull, designed exclusively for Volvo’s IPS pod-drive technology.
