TARGA 48 Open

This Express Yacht opens the experience of the sun, wind and sky with a retractable canvas roof. The cockpit’s oversized, welcoming sun pad encourages guests to share the captain’s view.

The Targa 48 OPEN comfortably sleeps up to 7 and provides ample space to entertain many more. Functionally arranged social areas are simple and elegant. The cabin layout features a generous mid-ship master with a sofa that can be upgraded to a full sofa bed, offering an additional berth. The forward double cabin can convert to a V-berth with the choice of a third cabin in lieu of a dinette.

The efficiently designed galley includes a tall refrigerator/freezer and pullout pantry. Large, panoramic windows add light and spaciousness to the comfortable salon. The boat’s integrated garage houses a PWC or tender, with an optional hydraulic passerelle and submersible powered bathing platform.

Volvo Penta IPS with joystick control puts at your command one of the most exhilarating sports cruisers on the water. Options range from D4-260 EVC Stern Diesel 260 HP, cruising at 32 knots to 370 HP cruising at 34 knots.
