It’s happening again! Leading British luxury motor yacht manufacturer, Fairline Boats, is aiming to top the charts again – this time with a new flagship the Targa 75 GRAN TURISMO. If the recently released rendering of this magnificent Sport Cruiser is anything to go by, this stunner is destined to surpass all records at her world debut during the 2015 show season.

Boating World’s Derrick and Suzanne are very excited about this sleek new prospect which promises modernity and comfort in every inch - yet another winner from the cruiser masters.

For starters she’ll incorporate some of the most advanced technology available to provide even more single-level space than ever both inside and out. The huge extended outdoor entertainment area in the cockpit simply oozes features for maximum relaxation with gorgeous lounging areas inviting guests to do just that – lounge around!

If one can rouse oneself sufficiently to move, it’s just a short shuffle to the well-positioned wetbar – easily stocked to meet every thirsty need! And as if that’s not enough sun worshippers can simply flop down on the vast triple sunpad which hides a secret all of its own! Nestling right underneath is a fully-fledged garage suitable for a Williams 445 Diesel Jet tender. The submersible hi-lo bathing platform can also be used to launch and recover the high speed tender as required.

Meander into the beautifully appointed spacious saloon and you’ll be forgiven for thinking you’re still outside! There’s so much glazing around for stunning visibility, you’ll feel totally unrestricted and once the retractable sunroof is open – you’ll simply feel the glorious rays of the sun rays on your skin!

While you may feel free you’ll be surrounded by creature comforts to please all generations, from luxurious seating to a 50” TV and surround sound system. And if you really want to impress your guests, direct them to the foredeck which offers yet another entertainment area with seating (which is a first for the Targa range), sunbathing facilities and can you believe it there’s even space for a hot tub which is optional! It doesn’t get much better than that!

Down under, you’ll find fabulous overnighting accommodation – either in a three or four-cabin arrangement all with en-suite. Whatever your preference the luxury remains a given and each layout enjoys a fabulously-equipped full-width master stateroom complete with dressing room, lounging area and bureau. Throw in a large walk-in shower, twin washbasins and toilet in separate compartment and your back at home with all your comforts.

The three cabin option features a grand galley below deck with integrated wine cooler, as well as a washer and dryer. The four cabin version sports a smaller but beautifully appointed galley and two twin en-suites. Both options come complete with American style fridge freezer with icemaker, dishwasher, microwave oven, hob and plentiful storage space.

This flagship Targa 75 will have all the “voomah” one would expect with twin Caterpillar C32 engines, with power options of 1622, 1825 and 1925mhp - reaching speeds in excess of 32 knots with the base engines or towards 40 knots with the highest power offering.
