BOAT TEST: FAIRLINE TARGA 65 GT (2020-)

Brief Summary

The Fairline Targa 65 GT is the newest addition to the Targa family. Along with her striking Italian design by Alberto Mancini, the Targa 65 GT’s hull and engineering were handled by Dutch naval architecture firm Vripack. With its extended salon, 17’2” (5.23 m) beam and visibly spacious interior, this beauty is not only easy on the eyes but also powerful with her twin Caterpillar C18 Direct Diesel Inboards.

The Targa 65 GT is an impressive expression of a design legacy with vision.

The 65 is a very important boat for Fairline. With it, they are putting both consumers and their competitors on notice that there is a potent new player in the rarified atmosphere of 60-something plus motoryachts. More models are on the way.

The Targa 65 GT is an impressive result of blending together the triumvirate of Vripack for the naval architecture and engineering, Alberto Mancini for the Italian styling and panache both inside and out, and the in-house design team at Fairline. Unsung but equally important are the shop personnel who have crafted a vessel with a fine fit-and-finish from bow to stern. We suspect that there is new esprit de corps among the small army of people that build this boat.
