Motor Boat & Yachting magazine hosted the annual Motor Boat Awards ceremony at Corinthia Hotel in London earlier in May. The Motor Boat Awards pride themselves on being the only marine awards with the motorboat buyer’s interest at heart, with all nominated boats being put through rigorous sea trials and tests by the magazine’s technical experts before the final winners are announced. We are very proud that the Fairline Targa 43 outshone the strong competition and was awarded the ‘Best Sports Cruiser under 45ft’ at the Motor Boat Awards Ceremony.
The Fairline Targa 43 is as versatile as it is luxurious – a rejuvenated model of the popular Fairline classic that beckons guests with elegant features that evoke the glamour of the Riviera. The cockpit is spacious and generously appointed, with a door-less design that invites the outdoors in. A big dinette dominates the central area, complemented by a bar with sheltered L-shaped seating to port, giving guests a comfortable space to gather together during passages. A sleek hardtop provides shelter from the midday heat, while an electric canvas roof gives guests a chance to enjoy the open air. Stylish sunbeds on the aft and foredecks enhance the sense of comfort and relaxation.
This win in the hotly contested ‘Best Sports Cruiser under 45ft’ category is the second award for the Fairline Targa 43, which was also crowned the winner of the ‘Best Exterior Design’ (14-18m category) at the World Yacht Trophies 2018.
