The automotive world influenced Claudio Magazzù's exterior design on the Magazzù Targa 45 maxi RIB. The boat has a sleek-looking pilothouse in addition to an aft dining area and a forward sunbathing space. The RIB carries 43 feet, 8 inches of waterline and 15 feet, 10 inches of beam. While Targa 45s can be customized, the standard triple 400 hp Mercury Verados purportedly deliver a 55-knot top-end speed.

Whom It’s For: This quick capable RIB is for owners who want versatility, comfort, and the ability to entertain and overnight using the deck accommodations and belowdecks stateroom, salon and galley.

Picture This: It’s Friday afternoon and blowing hard on New England’s Block Island Sound, but the weekend’s forecast calls for bluebird skies. The Targa 45′s pilothouse keeps you and your first mate safe and dry as you cruise the 22 nautical miles separating Newport and Great Salt Pond. You arrive at Block Island Oyster Bar and Grill in time for Friday night libations and oysters with the whole weekend ahead to enjoy.
