New Model: Fairline 50 Targa Gran Turismo

Launched earlier this year at the 2011 London show, the Fairline 50 Targa Gran Turismo replaces the 52 model of the same range after an important eight years production run.  The 50 Targa Gran Turismo take a lot of design stints from the previous new launched 58, a model which represents a different way of presenting the large sport series from Fairline.  This new thinking comes from larger sun roofs, full opening patio doors, and bigger glassed surfaces on both the main and lower deck.  Other new design instincts comes from the fact that both the latest large Targa's, this 50 and the 58 offer a living with galley on the main deck, and lower plan fully dedicated to the cabins.  The 50 Targa Gran Turismo also stays away in following recent trends and offers the owners stateroom to fore.   But don't be written off as this has been made in way to compete with a midships cabin layout. Power is a three engine choices from Volvo and Cats from 575 up to 710hp which take speeds up to 33 knots with the larger option.  Design of hull and engineering for the 50 Targa Gran Turismo is again trusted to long time since the eighties Fairline colloborator Bernard Olesinski who again as for the completely new 41 Squadron goes for a flat medium Vee aft of only twelve degrees.
