Welcome to the Squadron 48, where attention to detail and ingenuity are used to create unforgettable experiences. You can enjoy this Squadron in so many ways; for its size it is destined to be one of the most enjoyable yachts on the water.
With its roof open to the skies above and a large rear sunpad inviting you to soak up the sun, this thoroughbred Targa is ready to take the true Mediterranean spirit and style to the rest of the world.
As with every Squadron, the 65 gives you the distinct impression of being on board a very large yacht. The flybridge has been designed with sociability in mind and features comprehensive entertainment facilities and two large, luxurious daybeds. A central window runs the full length of the sun pad on the foredeck bringing daylight into the forward cabin and adding a stylish look to the exterior.
The elegant, award-winning Squadron 78 CUSTOM draws on a 40-year heritage. From the well-proven hull to the exquisite furnishings and cabinetry, more than 12,000 Fairlines stand behind the creation of this peerless luxury motor yacht. As its name implies, a high level of customisation is available and clients can rely on the specialist advice and experience of our Yacht Division throughout the order and commissioning process.
Fairline Yachts are pleased to announce that there will be an addition to the new 53ft range, the Targa 53 OPEN.
Available from September 2016, the new Targa 53 OPEN will feature uninterrupted entertaining above decks with a single level teak floor from cockpit to companionway. The boat incorporates a beautifully tapered hull glazing which emphasises the dynamic character of the Targa concept and ensures that the spacious master cabin, lower galley and saloon below, are filled with natural light. Customers are also able to choose between a two cabin or three cabin configuration that best suits their individual requirements.
The cockpit boasts a spacious three person sun bed above the tender garage, large ‘U’ shaped cockpit seating with a wet bar opposite and spacious companion seating across from the helm, the perfect arrangement for maximising enjoyment onboard. The Targa 53 OPEN will offer a choice of three shaft driven engine options offering a minimum fully loaded speed in excess of 30 knots and a range of at least 300 nautical miles. There will also be the option to add stabilisation, with the boat accepting both fin and gyroscopic stabilisers offering the highest level of comfort onboard.
