Here's a quick video of our first impressions of the Fairline Targa 48.
20th October 2013. By Lenny Rudow
The Fairline Targa 48 is a boat that offers a lot more than you’d think for its LOA. For starters, it has a mid-cabin that’s unexpectedly large. Then, consider its huge roll-back top – just press a button, and the entire helm deck becomes open-air.
Surprise bonus: you can stand at the helm, and see over the windshield. And on top of all this, it has pod drives, so maneuvering is incredibly easy and performance gets a boost.
Wish you could see the Targa for yourself? Here’s the next-best thing: a First Look video we shot of the Fairline Targa 48, when it was on display at the Cannes Boat Show.
