Targa: Power, performance, sleek styling

Since its launch, the Targa 38 has been one of the fastest selling models in the Fairline range. Sleek and powerful, this is a truly infectious sports cruiser that handles beautifully.

The swept-back radar arch and flowing lines of the hull and superstructure hint at the true personality of this 38-footer, where power and beauty are delivered in one well-considered package. The 360° panoramic view from the saloon and the striking vertical hull windows that let light pour in also suggest that this compact Targa believes itself to be a much larger boat.

There’s ample accommodation for a large group of day-trippers and it sleeps up to 7 with ease. Below, the large forward cabin enjoys natural light from the twin portholes and deck hatch and the guest cabin defies the norm with generous headspace above its twin berths. Seemingly impossible on a boat this size, an optional sofa bed converts into a third berth.
