12-17 September 2017 | Stand PAN024

British luxury motor yacht manufacturer, Fairline Yachts, will take its revival to another level during its 50th anniversary year as it launches the new Targa 63 GTO, the first Alberto Mancini-designed Fairline, to the world at Cannes Yachting Festival.

The Targa 63 GTO was announced in the summer of 2016 to great excitement from motor yacht enthusiasts across the globe, as the world waited for the first glimpse of the highly-coveted 63-footer. This is the first of the new generation of models from Fairline Yachts, aptly launched during Fairline’s ‘golden year’ with the brand celebrating 50 years of boat building.

Featuring the world-class combination of Mancini’s stunning Italian styling, rigorous and proven naval architecture by renowned Dutch firm Vripack and the hand-crafted, made in Great Britain quality of Fairline’s passionate and skilled craftsmen, the Targa 63 GTO is set to take centre stage.

Visitors to the Fairline stand will not only be able to experience the brand new Targa 63 GTO, but also three other Fairline boats, including the 2018 model year Targa 48 OPEN, the spectacular Targa 53 OPEN and the recently launched Squadron 53.

Russell Currie, Managing Director at Fairline Yachts, comments, “This year’s Cannes Yachting Festival has held a significant meaning to Fairline ever since we announced that the first fully Mancini-designed Fairline yacht, the Targa 63 GTO, would be launched there. Our aim since Fairline was relaunched at the start of last year has been to create boats that customers want to own and dealers want to sell, and we are proud to have done just that with the Targa 63 GTO. With more exciting announcements to make during our press call at the show, we’re sure the visitors to the Fairline stand during Cannes won’t be disappointed!”

Targa 48 OPEN

The Targa 48 OPEN is one of the most exciting sports cruisers on the water. A beautifully appointed two or three cabin, double en-suite model, the Targa 48 OPEN embraces the design trend of spacious sociable areas both inside and out. The 2018 model features newly designed hull windows, courtesy of Alberto Mancini, which allows the upgraded interior to be bathed in natural light. The Targa 48 OPEN offers a range of high quality interior options, providing superior comfort and luxury for every guest that steps on-board. The model also features an electric canvas roof as standard, as well as a garage for a jet tender and the option of a submersible swim platform. The Targa 48 OPEN offers exceptional performance and manoeuvrability thanks to its impressive twin Volvo IPS 600 or IPS 700s.

Targa 53 OPEN

The Targa 53 OPEN express cruiser maximises the feeling of freedom and fun on the water by providing uninterrupted entertaining space above decks and in the spacious two or three cabin layout, exceptionally comfortable accommodation below. This sleek and stylish cruiser is emphasised by an eye-catching, tapered hull glazing that accentuates the dynamic character of this sporty Targa model. The Targa 53 OPEN offers a choice of two shaft driven engine options from Volvo – D11-675 and D11-725 - offering a minimum fully loaded top speeds in excess of 30 knots and a range of at least 300 nautical miles at a cruising pace. There is also the ability to add stabilisation, with the boat engineered to accept a Seakeeper gyroscopic stabiliser. Designed with Mediterranean boating in mind, the Targa 53 OPEN is sure to be a hit at Cannes.

Squadron 53

Launched during Fairline’s 50th anniversary year at Boot Dusseldorf in January 2017, Fairline’s new Squadron 53 was crafted with Alberto Mancini’s design expertise. The yacht, based on Fairline’s existing and well proven 53ft hull, features a new Mancini design from the deck upwards, showcasing the direction of Fairline’s future exterior styling.

Mancini’s design has resulted in a spacious main deck with a flat floor from the cockpit to the lower helm, which in turn ensures a flat ceiling in the master cabin offering a generous 6ft 4in headroom at the foot of the large double bed, adding to the overall sense of space in this expansive 55ft 6in (16.92m)-long cruiser. With foredeck seating, a cockpit sun bed and a large flybridge, there’s room to spare whether it’s a short cruise or an extended stay onboard.

Hand crafted to order by Fairline’s highly experienced and dedicated craftsmen in Oundle, England, the new Squadron 53 offers luxury boaters total command and control thanks to its striking swept flybridge, whilst exuding style and offering great entertaining spaces onboard. Fairline’s approach, from superior engineering and multiple layout options, to small details that delight, makes the Squadron 53 the perfect choice for those who want their yacht their way.

Fairline’s prestigious international network of dealers will be represented on the Fairline stand throughout the Cannes Yachting Show, together with key personnel from Fairline’s design and manufacturing teams to provide visitors with in-depth information about the company and its ranges going into the 2018 season.
