EAST COAST YACHT SALES is honored to bring Targa Boats: the 4×4 of the sea, to the east coast this year as the newest USA dealer. Targa has earned a reputation for producing well-constructed boats with incredible offshore capabilities, finely-finished, comfortable interiors, and fast cruising speeds across all models.
Over 40 years ago, Botnia Marin was founded by husband-and-wife team, Johan and Britt-Marie Carpelan. They started production with a range of sailboats and powerboats. In 1984, they purchased the design for the Targa 25 and began production on the line, which they have since expanded and evolved to a comprehensive, 10-model range that is available today.
These boats are an exciting addition to the New England yachting scene, filling a void in the market for the adventurous mariner. They perfectly accommodate an active, fast paced lifestyle without compromising comfort and beautiful yacht furnishings. With cruising speeds in the 30-knot range and top speeds of 38 knots, the Targa line is an efficient and pleasant way to get from A to B. In addition to speed, safety is paramount for the brand. The general hull design as well as features such as full walk-around side decks, high gunwales, side doors at the helm, and rugged construction contribute to an extremely safe and reliable ride.
What Targa has mastered in capability, the yachts match in comfort. Even the smallest model in the line features comfortable sleeping accommodations, as well as a galley and head. The luxe feel of the Targa’s interior has the superb comfort and style of a classic yacht. The 10 different models range in size from the Targa 23.1 to the Targa 46. Depending on the model they can be powered either by Volvo inboard diesel engines or outboards.
