Fairline, one of the United Kingdom’s marquis yacht builders, made three key announcements at the Cannes Yachting Festival. First, it unveiled imagery and specifications for the Targa 43 Open, which it announced as a new model earlier this year.

The yacht stands out with exceptionally sleek lines enhanced by tapered hull windows.

She’ll also have a Williams 285 TurboJet tender. Fairline further announced plans for a 63 Squadron to launch at next year’s Cannes boat show.


The Alberto Mancini design will feature a three- or four-stateroom layout and twin crew cabins. Lastly, the company revealed plans for a new manufacturing facility in England that will allow it to construct larger yachts than it currently has the capacity to build. The animus to create this new factory was global demand for larger yachts.

These are certainly exciting times for Fairline and its many fans, and the company appears to be humming along.
