New imagery of the Fairline Targa 43 Open gives the clearest idea yet of how this new entry-level Targa will look when it hits the water in the spring.
Penned by Alberto Mancini, the same man who drew the Targa 63 GTO, the 43 Open sports a rakish roofline with one-piece saloon windows and the new Fairline family hull windows that deliver such a striking side-on profile.
Despite its name the 43 Open has a roof over the cockpit, though being a folding canvas affair the aperture once peeled back is generous and the lack of cockpit doors should make for a main deck that feels brilliantly open to the elements.
Beneath the centrally mounted sunpad there is a tender garage large enough for a Williams Minijet with steps either side leading up to the cockpit and sidedecks.
The central section of the cockpit is dominated by a generous dinette and wetbar with space forward for twin helm seats to starboard and a sheltered L-shaped seating pod to port that should prove a great spot for guests to congregate on passage.
Below decks customers have the choice of Fairline’s familiar trim levels (Amalfi, Capri, Hamptons and St.Tropez) and the option to have the master cabin forward or amidships.
