2016 model powered by twin Volvo Penta D4-300hp diesel engines.  Hard top version of the Fairline Targa 38 with electric roof for thrilling convertible fun.

Manufacturer Provided Description

For many this hard top is one of the most eagerly awaited Fairlines to date. Specify the D4-300 Volvo engines and you will also have the fastest Fairline built to date. Even fully loaded it can easily push into the 37 knot range.

Demand for a hard top version was too great for us not to take it seriously. But we had to get it right. We worked with Makefast to acquire a tried and tested roof and electrical system. Reliable, easy to use and neat. The Targa 38OPEN offers the largest roof opening area for a boat of this size and a long overhang over the cockpit to offer maximum protection. We also extended the glazing to give greater all-round vision and further enhance the feeling of an express cruiser that’s open to the world around it. This big boat thinking also extends aft, where you can specify a submersible bathing platform for ultimate enjoyment of the water.
