New Model: Fairline 48 Targa GT

It's been an interesting year for Fairline which presented an important 48 model available in three different variants. The Fairline 48 is the second IPS model since the company presented the 44 Targa GT in 2007, and the first to be build with resin infusion method. Presented in the London show this January the new 48 Targa GT the enclosed hard top version is the last of these, and offers a similar plan to the Open version, with the main difference coming in the aft deck, and a longer more extended hard-top.  The aft deck of the 48 Targa Gran Turismo features no sun-pad but a spacious C-shaped settee replaces this. Unlike the Open the 48 Targa GT targets customers who want sport looks and a possibility to be on the water in rain or sun.
