New model – Targa 46!
In February 2016, a Swedish Targa 44 owner told us that he would be interested in a new Targa slightly larger than the present largest boat model and, at least to start with, it had to be something that no-one else had. An agreement about a ”TARGA 46 CUSTOM” in time for delivery in the spring 2017 was made. At that stage we didn’t know if this would be a one-off boat or a model that we later would offer also to other customers. The boat was produced during the autumn 2016 and was successfully delivered to the new owner in Vasa in June this year.
During the building stages of the Targa 46 No 001 and during the season 2016-2017, there was a lot of interest in this boat. The decision was therefore soon made: to launch the new Targa 46 model as a new addition to the Targa fleet!
In short, the new Targa 46 can be described as an extended version of the popular Targa 44. The Targa 46 hull is 75 cm longer than the Targa 44 hull, giving the boat a total length (L.O.A) of 15,11 m (49,6’) and a hull length of 13,93 m (45,7’).
In order to be able to customize the boat for the customers’ specific needs, we offer the Targa 46 with three different pilothouse lengths: ”T44 pilothouse”, ”T44 + 40 cm pilothouse” and ”T44 + 75 cm pilothouse” (the pictures are showing the last version). This gives the customer the possibility to choose between a really large aft deck, a really large pilothouse or a proportional compromise between aft deck and pilothouse.
The engine alternatives that we offer at the moment:
- 2 x Volvo Penta D6-400/DPH (2x400 HP),
estimated top speed: 35 knots
- 2 x Volvo Penta IPS600 (2x435 HP),
top speed: 37 knots
- 2 x Volvo Penta D8-IPS800 (2x600 HP),
estimated top speed: 41 knots
More information about this new model will be shared during the autumn.
