Another fabulous Fairline has just been launched on the worldwide market with forward orders pouring in for their new Targa 48 Open model. Bursting with luxurious fittings, awesome power and every inch oozing Mediterranean style living – boaters are paying attention.

In its open form, with the canvas roof retracted, there is a true sense of freedom that’s hard to beat – she’s sexy, stylish and ready to surge away into wide open seas. The Targa 48 Open demands more than a passing glance and a second look reveals a boat full of surprises.

Once you’ve got passed admiring her sleek, modern exterior and climbed on board - the first thing that strikes you is her amazing spaciousness. She just goes on and on with each area flowing comfortably into each other and of course large panoramic windows add to the sense of light and space - making her seem even bigger.

The well appointed saloon is a work of art - stunning in simplicity but the unquestionable heart of this craft – and the perfect social area of which the most discerning owner can rightfully be proud. Take a stroll into the adjoining galley with its full height fridge/freezer and you’ll find everything you need for sumptuous snacks or mealtimes. There is also the option of turning the spacious dinette area found here into a third cabin if you need more sleeping accommodation.

Talking about overnighting – while layout options below deck are variable you’ll appreciate the fabulous mid master cabin with an optional sofa that converts into an additional bed. The forward double cabin can convert to a V-berth and both have en-suite bathrooms.

 Moving back into 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.

As expected there’s loads of storage space all over - under seating and other spots and the integral garage is home for the optional jet tender. Other options include a hydraulic passerelle and a submersible powered bathing platform.

Fairline Boats has developed a specific hull for the IPS powered models making use of new technologies and industry-leading production systems. This has ensured the new Targa 48 offers exceptional performance powered by the twinVolvo Penta IPS 600 Diesel engines – each capable of 435 mhp.  

Add exceptional manoeuvrability thanks to the joystick control and you have at your command one of the most exciting sports cruisers on the water.

Everything you would expect from the British manufacturer.
