Founded in Oundle in the English Midlands in 1967, Fairline has moved on from its original 19-foot river cruiser to establish itself as a builder of very seaworthy and finely-tuned recreational craft. There are currently ten models from 38 to 78 feet in length across two product lines - the Targa line (from the 38 to the 62GT) and the Squadron line (from the 42 to the 78 Custom).
The Targa line comprises modern express cruisers either in Open or Gran Turismo (GT) form - and the boats have deservedly won a committed following for their excellent ride quality and handling composure. The larger Squadron line is dedicated to flybridge cruisers, each of which is designed to put well appointed and generously proportioned living spaces at the heart of the boating experience.
The spirit of the Mediterranean exists in every square inch of this perfectly formed Targa. In its open form, with the canvas roof retracted, there is a true sense of freedom that continues out onto the cockpit with its large, inviting sunpad.
There’s space, and lots of it. Beautifully considered sociable areas, luxurious and stunning in their simplicity. The cabin layout features a fabulous mid master with an optional sofa that converts into an additional bed, there’s a forward double cabin that can convert to a V-berth and the option of a third cabin in lieu of a dinette. The perfectly formed galley enjoys a tall fridge/freezer and pull out larder.
Large panoramic windows add to the sense of light and space in the generously well appointed saloon. Moving out onto the cockpit you can take a seat or stretch out on the large sunpad, with the luxury of being able to control how much sunlight you get by simply activating the powered retractable cockpit cover. The integral garage is home for the optional jettender and the option list extends to a hydraulic passerelle and a submersible powered bathing platform.
Add sparkling performance and exceptional manoeuvrability thanks to its Volvo Penta IPS with joystick control, and you have at your command one of the most exciting sports cruisers on the water.
