Fairline Targa 48 GT


Welcome to a truly wonderful open-to-the-skies experience with the Fairline Targa 48 GT, where you can choose to invite in the warmth and sociability of your environment, with one elegant sweep of your electric hardtop.

Look beyond the exciting, sun-appreciating nature of this sports cruiser and you will find new technologies and exceptional engineering. The hull, for instance, has been specifically designed to compliment the Volvo Penta IPS engines, resulting in even more precise handling, along with impeccable sea keeping. Taking the hardtop in question, it comes with panelled glazing as standard for that ‘open, even when closed’ sensation.

Moving through the boat you’ll find a luxuriously spacious, sociable upper deck that offers plentiful seating, in addition to a well-appointed helm station with twin seats. The cockpit features a J-shaped seating area with a table, and can offer the option of a sunbed conversion. The lower deck has three cabins as standard and there is an optional lower saloon/dinette in lieu of the third cabin layout. Perfectly formed, perfectly thought-through. Everything you come to expect from a Fairline.
