Project: Fairline 38 Targa GT

Better late then never or so they say.  I have been waiting for a hard top Fairline 38 Targa for quite some time and finally the British, Oundle based boat builder presents the Gran Turismo version for this 2006 launched model.  Fairline actually delivered more then just a hard top with power sliding canvas roof to the 38 Targa Gran Turismo, and they also upgraded the interior and added three new vertical feature windows to the guest midships cabin.  Here the accommodation has been increased with the option of a sofa that converts to a third berth in the guest cabin and following customer feedback, entry here has also been significantly improved.  With this option the 38 Targa now sleeps a total of seven persons including the convertible saloon. The 38 Targa Gran Turismo will also add a new Volvo engines option of the new 400hp stern drive which goes along the standard 260hp, and optional 300 and 370 units.  A top speed of  45 knots is being anticipated with the new 400hp Volvo engines.
