Project: Fairline Targa 40

Fairline is pleased to announce an all-new Targa 40 project set to launch in the summer of 2023. This new twelve meter sport cruiser is the latest addition to the popular Targa range, with some big shoes to fill, being the natural replacement to the previous Targa 38 which sold 313 units from 2006 till 2015 and the first generation Targa 40 selling 299 from 2000 till 2007.  Designed by the Fairline design team guided by Christian Gott the Targa 40 embraces innovative and bold design directions from a modern bluff-bow hull, to being the first Fairline with a folding side bulkhead.  Beyond the folding starboard bulkhead the cockpit will offer an interesting layout, bridging a gap from easy day-boat use to that of a sport cruiser there is a lot of things to like here from the flash cockpit floor, to the twin sunbeds with floating backrests converting into sofas for guests to enjoy throughout the day and night, and a large C-shaped seating  dining area and companion seating to port, and a wet bar nestled behind the two individual helm seats. The beautifully proportioned and ergonomically designed helm console fitted with latest Garmin touch screen display enhances the experience with a simplified and intuitive user interface allowing integrated control of all essential systems. Moving to the foredeck, the expansive sunbeds dominate, and the addition of a forward-facing sofa at the bow enables guests to enjoy the views whilst cruising.  A contemporary interior with four berths in a two-cabin layout, replicates the sophisticated furnishings and flawless design on the main deck. The roomy master cabin is located forward with a headroom just shy of two meters and direct access to the en-suite which features a jack-and-jill door arrangement. In the mid-ship’s guest cabin, the twin beds with 1.5m height, slide to convert to a double. The integrated garage under the ports side sun-pad will have room for a 2.3m tender with electric outboard.  This new Targa 40 unlike the previous Targa 40 and 38 which used the 1993 Targa 38 Olesinski hull will feature a new bottom shape with a four meter beam, and is to be powered by twin Volvo 340hp or 380hp with stern drive propulsion, good for 32 and 36 knots max speed respectively.
