Owning a luxury yacht is often a desired asset, but not always a financially feasible one. Boating World listens and is attending to their customers requirements - we know have shares available in the luxurious Fairline Targa 48 Open in Cape Town, South Africa.

With the Boat Share alternative we offer all the pleasures of a luxury yacht lifestyle without the large initial investment and the added benefit of sharing the running costs.

Big Boat aficionadas are grabbing at the chance to own a piece of pure On Water Luxury! There are still some ¼ and ½ shares available – so don’t miss out on a great investment opportunity.

From the moment she landed on African shores in Cape Town, this luxuriously sexy sport cruiser attracted huge attention! Not only is she an absolute powerhouse, but she’s highly responsive, 30% lighter and economical.  Totally safe – the Fairline 48 is ideal for our South African coastline!

One of her most noticeable features is her height above the water (4.60m) - which is gives fantastic views to both passengers and the pilot. It’s this height which also gives the fabulous headroom downstairs on the lower deck. She oozes luxurious Mediterranean-style living with spacious elegance from tip to rear. Beautifully considered sociable areas include the wide-open cockpit which is undoubtedly one of the favourite social spots.

There’s plenty of seating both next to the pilot’s helm (L-shaped) and around a table where up to 15 people can enjoy day trips in complete comfort. This is the perfect setting to enjoy tasty canape’s, snacks and drinks!

Everything has been carefully thought out – right down to the amount of sunlight allowed in by monitoring the retractable canvas roof. Wide open, guests are treated to a delicious sense of unrestricted freedom – which extends right through to the large, inviting sunpad. A quick “lie-down” is simply irresistible.

Moving a few steps down below and you’ll find yourself in the generously well-appointed saloon with large panoramic windows letting in light and air. The equipped galley sports a tall fridge/freezer and pull out larder.

Six can sleep comfortably in the fabulous mid master (with an optional sofa that converts into an additional bed) and the forward double cabin that can convert to a V-berth and the option of a third cabin in lieu of a dinette. Averaging around 6’4” in both the two cabins and even in the sumptuous en-suite shower compartments – so you don’t have to bend – not even a little! By the way the urge to try out the full length berths is unbelievably hard to resist

As expected there’s loads of storage space throughout this cruiser and should you venture out in the sporty 100hp Williams Jet RIB 285 tender – getting back to base is no problem. Idling towards the rear, it’s soon apparent how easy it is to park in the built-in garage which has hydraulic hinges to lift the door!

Options also include a submersible powered bathing platform and powerful sporty Williams Jet. Apart from offering easy access in and out of the boat, this would be a great spot for casting a line. 

Thanks to the Fairline V-hull, the Targa 48 cuts through any chop with ease and her ride is solid and sure footed keeping all spray and wake very low in the water. How about a spot of skiing, tubing or wakeboarding?

Her powerful twin 600 Diesel engines (capable of 435mhp each) easily barrel along at a combined top speed of around 32 knots. She’s highly responsive with exceptional turning and stability.

It’s worth noting that the Targa 48 is the first Fairline intentionally designed to complement the Volvo Penta’s IPS drives with joystick control. This is another huge plus – particularly when idling in those secluded coves and crannies or when manoeuvering in busy marinas!

Without question if you get involved in a share (or two) you’ll be investing in one of the most exciting sports cruisers on the water.
