In the original development brief and plans for the award-winning Targa 47 we declared our intention of creating a model to "Redefine the Art of Express Cruising". That this has been achieved so successfully is due in large part to the many advances unveiled at the earlier launch of our flagship model, the widely acclaimed Targa 62. Her leading-edge innovations and powerfully dramatic styling led the way and the all-new Targa 47 inherits the key elements of her elegant design philosophy, including the signature feature of all our GRAN TURISMO models, the powered retractable hardtop. The story continues with an incredibly spacious cockpit, a large stern bathing platform and an integrated garage for tenders and water toys ... not to mention the magnificent saloon, galley and two large cabins, each with its own en suite.
The Fairline Targa 47 GRAN TURISMO features a fully retractable hardtop. The hallmarks of this classic long-range sports cruiser is its spacious cockpit, plentiful sunbathing areas and excellent sea keeping qualities. She has a top speed of 35 knots with a 30 knot cruise. The Targa 47 is a two-cabin model, with full en-suite in the guest accommodation to provide the most spacious and luxurious accommodation in its class.
The open plan cockpit offers many attributes that owners aspire to from this sought after model range; including ergonomically designed helm positions, large comfortable dining seating and al fresco galley arrangements, matched to fore and aft sunbathing areas.
The interior has been designed with overnight accommodation for the owners' plus two guests - with both cabins featuring private en suites.
The luxuriously appointed Master Stateroom is positioned forward with considerable natural light from the twin portholes and deck hatch, providing a bright and airy cabin with generous stowage including a full-height hanging locker. A luxuriously appointed full-size en suite with separate shower adjoins the cabin.
The twin guest cabin is amidships with ample stowage that also includes a hanging wardrobe.
Generous opening portholes provide natural daylight and the guest accommodation is completed by a private en suite with separate shower. Both cabins and ensuites are exceedingly generous and class leading.
The main saloon has comfortable seating for six and a state of the art entertainment console including LCD television, radio, and CD changer. Both this and the comprehensively equipped galley with hob, microwave, full height fridge/freezer, extractor fan and teak and holly floor are accessed directly from the cockpit.
With the focus on al fresco entertaining, the new Targa 47 features the most generous cockpit layout to date.
A J-shaped settee is positioned alongside the horizontally adjustable double bolstered helm seat providing seating for two. Once at anchor, the cockpit area is perfect for al fresco dining with wrap-around seating for six to eight, featuring a sink with hot and cold water, refrigerator, insulated coolbox and where requested an electric griddle.
A transom gate leads to the integral teak-laid bathing platform with shower and concealed bathing platform ladder. Access is given to the tender garage capable of accommodating a RIB or PWC. Generous side-decks with solid handrails afford easy access to the foredeck, where expansive coachroof sun cushions provide for relaxation.
As with all of the boats in the Fairline Targa range the Olesinski hull has been designed for fast passage making and provides safe and comfortable sea keeping.
