Beach clubs were once the preserve of the superyacht, but no more – with Fairline the first British yard to embrace this waterside design feature on its forthcoming Targa 58 GTB.
Due to launch at the 2020 Cannes Yachting Festival, this 60ft Alberto-Mancini designed cruiser will be powered by a range of twin Volvo, MAN and Caterpillar engine options, with the biggest offering an estimated top speed of 36 knots.
But the star of the show is the beach club itself – its fold-out ‘wings’ expand the bathing platform to provide an enviable entertaining platform, with a pull-out BBQ and room to store a Williams 345 jet tender alongside a Seadoo Spark. What’s more, the bathing platform can extend aft to provide space for sunloungers or drop into the water to help launch the tender.
Wayne Huntley, design and engineering director at Fairline Yachts, said: “The Targa 58 GTB truly showcases our design ethos of creating a close connection to the water.
“We strive to be at the forefront of yacht innovation, and a beach club is typically a feature exclusive to yachts over 80ft, [so] to provide this enhanced boating experience in the 60ft class is something we are very proud of.”
