A good-selling model in the U.S., the Fairline 43 Targas combination of sleek styling, exceptional finish, and excellent performance hits all the right buttons. Theres much to admire in this boat; the styling was cutting-edge when she was introduced in 1998, and her space-efficient layout rivals many larger express boats for comfort and versatility. Built on a solid fiberglass deep-V hull with prop pockets, the slender 12'6"" beam of the 47 Targa goes a long way toward explaining her exceptional open-water performance. (The wider the beam, the more powerand fuelit takes to get up and running.) Below, the Targas elegant two-stateroom, two-head interior is a blend of lacquered cherry cabinets, rich leather seating, and premium hardware and furnishings. The galley is timber-floored with a sweeping counter concealing a two-burner stove, oven, grill and a sink. Topside the single-level cockpit features a large dining area with wraparound seating, wet bar with sink and fridge, and an optional barbecue. Beneath the large aft sundeck lies a concealed garage for a tender. Note the teak-laid swim platform. A fast ride, twin 480hp Volvo diesels cruise at 28 knots (mid 30s top).
