Project: Fairline 62 Targa GT

Fairline presents the new 62 Targa GT project, a further extension of the 58 model of the same designation.  This new Targa flagship keeps a lot of the praised lower deck layout which chooses for a forward owner stateroom, and two double guest cabins to midships, with the main difference from the 2009 launched model coming in the exterior aft deck.  Here the Fairline design team went for a full Mediterranean layout with a big large central located sun lounger, which can stow a tender underneath, and having an extended bathing platform to stern.  This makes it possible for the new 62 Targa GT to carry two tenders, if one desires so.  In this layout a single crew cabin is available to fore, and for the tender garage the second aft crew cabin option seems lost in the plans although it is on a To Be Confirmed basis in the specification.  Three engine options are available for the 62 Targa GT; twin Volvo 800 or 900hp, and MAN 1200hp.  Speed estimates are not yet announced, but is not the first time that a longer hull, even though a bit heavier can actually copy those of the smaller version.
