The Fairline Targa 75 Gran Turismo will be the largest Targa ever
The Fairline Targa 75 Gran Turismo will plant Fairline right in the middle of the top end sportscruiser fight when it hits the water in 2015.
Let’s hope the looks of the final production model stay true to this early rendering as we think the boat looks absolutely fantastic. Sleek and modern with brilliant use of glazing, it reminds you why there is still a reason to buy a sportscruiser over a flybridge in this size range.
On deck there is an enormous amount of single-level living space with a spacious upper saloon and generous, open cockpit separated by doors. The glass area in the saloon is staggering and that’s before you retract the sunroof overhead.
The area beneath that sunpad is large enough to house a Williams Dieseljet 445 tender snuggled up next to the crew cabin. However, the hi-lo bathing platform also has enough juice to launch/recover the tender if needs be.
Below decks there is the choice of either three or four cabins with both layouts ensuring the owner is suitably encased in spacious luxury. In the four cabin version the VIP also remains the same but you get a smaller galley and two twin ensuites as opposed a large third double.
A first for Fairline is the seating area on the bow, as well as a bog standard sunpad, and the option to fit a hot tub.
In the engineroom all options come from Caterpillar in the form of its C32 with either 1,622, 1,825 or 1,925hp. The lowest rated engines will hit a claimed 32 knots and the yard says the largest lumps will be capable of pushing the Targa flagship to close to 40.
We have seen signs in the last couple of new Fairlines that its mojo is back and we think that the Targa 75 is the clearest evidence of this yet.
