The Fairline Targa 62 GT has sweeping lines and a rakish superstructure. A sunroof opens over the helm and salon for fresh air and locks down with pneumatic seals to keep it rattle-free.

The yacht has a Bernard Olesinski hull form with a fine entry and 18-degree transom deadrise.

Accommodations are in three staterooms. The forepeak master has an athwartships berth, and the other guest staterooms have double berths.

At press time, there were three Fairline Targa 62 GTs on the market, ranging from $885,000 to $999,000.

“With an average top speed of 33.4 knots on test day, the Targa 62 offers inspired performance that should be plenty for those wanting excitement. Come down to a cruising speed of about 25 knots, and this could cruise all day in considerable comfort. She maneuvers safely and predictably in close quarters, and the bow thruster helps in negotiating those final moves alongside.” —Yachting, March 2013
