Designers tread a narrow line when developing a sports cruiser in the 60-foot category. A vessel has to look striking, perform like a speedster and be fitted out to top-notch standards. The compromises can be challenging, but Fairline Boats has years of experience addressing these points, which is clearly evident in its Targa 62 Gran Turismo.
The Targa 62’s profile flows from bow to stern in a very sporting line, which sweeps up and over the hardtop. Her large sunroof strikes a pleasant compromise between an open and closed sports cruiser. A very long swim platform, however, seems out of proportion with the rest of the boat. Aside from that, she’s an exciting-looking yacht with performance to match.
Yet the best part may be hidden away in the bow. No owner will be disappointed with this vessel’s master cabin, which offers space and style that are nearly equal to superyacht standards. It spans most of the yacht’s 16-foot-6-inch beam, and mirrors enhance the feeling of spaciousness. The large berth is fitted athwartships, and the roomy head occupies the remaining space forward. Add in relaxing seating and desk/vanity units on the starboard side and you have a stateroom where the owner might just want to hide away, as long as the boat is not under way in rough seas. (The motion there will be greater than in any other area of the boat.)
