Project: Fairline 50 Targa GT

During the just past London Boat Show, Fairline released project plans to a new addition to its express cruiser and yacht range, with the 50 Targa Gran Turismo expected to be launched later on this year, and to make her first show debuts in early 2011. The development of the 50 Targa Gran Turismo follows the just launched all new 58 of the same range at the recent London Boat Show. The 50 Gran Turismo will enjoy a spacious three cabin, two en-suite interior with an optional fourth crew cabin. This new project also follows the latest evolutions of the Targa express cruiser design including many of the features, and interior layout introduced on the just launched 58 model. Key features include panoramic windows and extensive glazing throughout the 50 Targa Gran Turismo to provide light filled accommodation. A large master cabin and cleverly designed en-suite will be placed forward. This layout of interior space will provide expansive full width accommodation and with only the foredeck above, natural daylight will flood through overhead glazing. Just as seen on the 58, owners will also be able to transform the single level living and galley space aboard the 50 Targa Gran Turismo into an open-air space. The powered roof will glide open and a top hinged window will open up the galley area for Al-fresco serving. This will also enable guests to enjoy the freedom of fresh air from the galley to the transom. Other significant features which will be available include an innovative, concealed mechanised tender launch for Williams 325 Jet RIB to provide a safe, clean and open transom. A powered aft sunshade option will provide protection for the sociable and aft cockpit seating, which also converts into a sunpad at the touch of a button. This offers owners the flexibility to select a layout to suit the needs of their guests in the moment. Speeds and engine options for the 50 Targa GT has as yet not been announced.
