Manufacturer Provided Description

We are delighted to announce the latest addition to the legendary range of Fairline Boats, the Targa 53GT.

Our latest Targa model, which is currently in the middle of its development programme, will be a true class leader in terms of the flexibility of its spacious accommodation and its styling. Our new boat sports the next step forward in the long tradition of iconic Fairline design, incorporating beautifully tapered hull glazing that emphasises the dynamic character of our Targa concept and ensures that the spectacular master cabin is filled with natural light.

Our mid-ships master cabin is complemented by a double guest cabin forward and a versatile twin cabin to port. The cockpit and saloon accommodation has also been well thought through offering the choice of “C” or “J” style cockpit seating. An optional continental galley in the saloon compliments the main galley below and together with our glass entrance design delivers the perfect alfresco dining experience.

The Targa 53GT offers a choice of two shaft driven engine options from Volvo and Caterpillar as well as an optional crew cabin with its own window.

The Fairline Targa range has long been recognised as the very leading edge of express cruiser design and the Targa 53GT upholds that proud tradition.
