Fairline launched the first version of their Targa 53 last year (see Fairline Targa 53GT video: first look), now they have introduced an 'Open version'. Take a look around the new boat with Alex Smith in this Fairline Targa Open video, filmed at the Southampton Boat show.




As the Mediterranean style 'Open' model, this boat is all about uninterrupted main deck entertainment space. To that end the patio doors are gone. What you do get is a companion seat to keep the helm company, a wet bar to port. You get a three man sunpad aft and you also get a tender garage capable of accommodating a Williams 325 Jet tender.

Part of what makes the main deck such a good party space is the fact that the galley is relegated below. You still get three cabins below; a twin to port, a scissor berth elevated double in the bow and a full bean master suite aft.

This open model makes a lot of sense for those who do their boating in Spain, Italy or France, but for those of us in colder climes, the GT version is still the one with more appeal. If you're after a flybridge model, hang around as that will be launched in January 2017
