New Model: Botnia Targa 46

In February 2016, a Swedish Targa 44 owner told the Finnish company that he would be interested in a new slightly larger than the present largest boat model, and at least to start with, it had to be something that no-one else had. An agreement about a Targa 46 Custom in time for delivery in the spring 2017 was made. At that stage we didn’t know if this would be a one-off boat or a model that we later would offer also to other customers. The boat was produced during the autumn 2016 and was successfully delivered to the new owner in Vasa in June 2017.  During the building stages of the Targa 46 Number one and during the season 2016-2017, there was a lot of interest in this boat. The decision was therefore soon made: to launch the new Targa 46 model as a new addition to the Botnia fleet!  In short, the new Targa 46 can be described as an extended version of the popular 44. The Targa 46 hull is 75 cm longer than the Targa 44 hull, giving the boat a total length of over fifteen meters and a hull length just short of fourteen meters.  In order to be able to customize the boat for the customers specific needs, the Targa 46 is offered with three different pilothouse lengths: standard 44 model pilothouse, T44 plus 40 cm pilothouse, and T44 plus 75 cm pilothouse as the picture above shows. This gives the customer the possibility to choose between a really large aft deck, or a really large pilothouse or a proportional compromise between aft deck and pilothouse as in the 40 cm version.
