It is important to preserve the spirit of origins even when maturity is reached. And the English boat manufacturer Fairline is doing it very well. This enthusiastic determination is palpable when, looking at the new Targa 63 GTO, you can perceive the same spirit which inspired the building of the Targa 33, the first model of this prolific series, in 1985. More than her successful predecessor, the Targa 63 GTO clearly shows the 32-year history of the shipyard. Now, designers introduce Pan-European experiences in the British DNA of the shipyard: «Penned with Italian passion, crafted with British style» they say in their slogan and we might add: Italian passion, English style and Dutch engineering.
The superstructure features round glazed surfaces while side windows abound everywhere, following a widespread trend in yachting design but without the ambition to show trendy than others. Because the harmonious lines designed by Alberto Mancini seem to want to be up with the times for a very long time, which is the first great quality of classics. Unlike her GT sister, the Targa 63 GTO gives priority to exterior spaces, where the cockpit “steals space” to the interior salon while offering a new exterior one which is much more convenient during the cruising season. Of course, thanks to the large openable windows, the whole main deck turns into a huge open space. Waterlines and naval architecture are by renowned Dutch firm Vripack.
Inside, the 63 GTO offers multiple options. First of all, cabins can be three or four, with the master suite amidships and a crew cabin located aft, just next to the tender garage. The main deck, too, is offered in two different versions, with the galley positioned on the lower deck or along the left topside, opposite the pilot station. Interiors are offered in four different interior design schemes: Amalfi, Hamptons, Capri and St. Tropez, which confirm and emphasizes the passion for the Mediterranean life of this beautiful 20-meter boat.
