Fairline Targa 52 debuts at London

The Fairline Targa 52 is the longest of the open cockpit, long-range sports cruisers to the date

The Fairline Targa 52 is the longest of the open cockpit, long-range sports cruisers to the date. The boat is built by Fairline Boats PLC and will be the flagship of the Targa range.

The new boat is the latest addition to the Fairline Targa open cockpit range and will extend the choice from the Fairline Targa 30 to the new Fairline Targa 52. The traditional features of the Targa range are continued with the Targa 52. These consist of large open cockpit and extended aft sun-bathing areas.

The Targa 52 offers a large three cabin layout as standard with the options of converting the port cabin from a twin to a ‘den’ or an office with audio and visual entertainment. It can also be converted into a utility room.

The headroom throughout the saloon and galley is 6ft 9in, reducing to 6ft 6in in the accommodation areas.

The large cockpit area contains a bar unit with a fridge, icemaker and an electrical griddle. The roof of the cockpit can be converted to a sun canopy which stows against the GRP arch. The teak-laid floor of the cockpit leads to a large teak-laid bathing platform which incorporates a hot and cold shower and a bathing ladder. The side decks are very wide and a sunbathing areas on the forward and aft decks.
