Fairline Targa 45 GT

Norris Comer New Boats

Pacific Northwest Yachts, formerly known as Selene Yachts Northwest, is the new regional dealer of Fairline Yachts. Coming to their docks next year, from the British motoryacht manufacturer, is the Fairline Targa 45 GT—a luxury sport yacht that’s all about zippy performance and stylish accommodations.

The first glance reveals a sleek modern design that immediately puts it in the company of the Cantiuses or Riverias rather than the trawler family. The svelte planning hull form combined with twin Volvo Penta IPS diesel engines (440 horsepower each is standard) dish out a reported maximum speed of 32 knots. The driving experience is enhanced by the cabin, which is almost completely enclosed with glass and has a retractable sunroof for some sportscar mojo.

On deck, padded sunlounge areas are king, notably on the open foredeck and just aft of the covered cockpit. Twin steps lead down to the swim step to the transom, complete with integrated tender garage—an uncommon feature for a yacht this size. The swim step is also adjustable, meaning it can be submerged to make dinghy deployment from the garage extra easy.

The interior is gorgeous, as to be expected. The salon is spacious and airy with a modern feel. There are two staterooms, including the master in the V-berth with island-style berth, and two enclosed heads. The black windows built into the hull let in plenty of light below as well.

If going fast and living in luxury is the goal, then the Fairline Targa 45 GT may be the new yacht for you. A build will be arriving to the Pacific Northwest this summer. For pricing or more info, you can contact local dealer Pacific Northwest Yachts (formerly Selene Yacht Northwest).
