Remarkable response to Fairline’s announcement to bring back an all-new Targa 43 Open

19 Jan 2017

Fairline Yachts isn't launching its brand new Targa 43 Open yacht until spring 2018, but the response to the announcement has been so overwhelming, it sold ten models on the first day of the 2017 London Boat Show.

The new Targa 43 Open is the latest boat designed from a blank sheet of paper by celebrated superyacht designer, Alberto Mancini, for Fairline Yachts. The hugely successful partnership between the Italian designer and British boatyard, which began with the Targa 63 GTO, has created an instantly recognisable sleek hull shape with effortless styling, showcasing the future direction for Fairline Yachts.

Fairline’s new Targa 43 Open, will have the same innovative, versatile, light, bright and achingly stylish feel of the Targa 63 GTO. The luxurious sports cruiser will feature a choice of either twin Volvo Penta IPS 500 or IPS 600, which is expected to achieve a minimum fully-loaded speed of 34 knots.

Head of Design at Fairline Yachts, Andrew Pope, comments, “The Targa 43 was a phenomenally popular boat when originally launched in the late 1990s and we are confident this all-new model for the 21st century will be a worthy successor. The two cabin cruiser will feature an exciting new shape, a light and airy feel and luxurious hand-crafted details, whilst retaining Fairline’s core design DNA and, of course, the robust seakeeping we are known for. We can’t wait for you to meet her in Spring 2018.”

"It's a classic start to our global celebrations of Fairline's golden anniversary of boatbuilding." say's Derrick Levy of Boating World. "The Targa 43 has always been an exceptionally popular model amongst our African clientele, and we have no doubt this new release will perform just as well.
