FAIRLINE TO SHOWCASE AWARD-WINNING TARGA 58 GRAN TURISMO AT SYDNEY INTERNATIONAL BOAT SHOW
Strong interest expected with Australian dollar exchange rate powering top sales market in Asia-Pacific
(Australasia, July 4, 2012) – Hot on the heels of the recent success of Fairline Boats’ Targa 58 GRAN TURISMO, the British luxury yacht-maker will exhibit its award-winning boat at the Sydney International Boat Show from August 2 – 6, 2012.
Since being voted 2011 Motor Boat of the Year in its category, the sporty Targa 58 GT has been a big hit in Australia – with four sold to date, including two at the recent Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show held in May in Queensland.
The iconic English boatbuilder now anticipates keen interest in the model in Sydney’s Darling Harbour, which is a thriving hub for the luxury boat market.
”Market feedback is extremely positive, partly due to an exceptional buying environment and the power of the Australian dollar exchange rate,” said Bryan Jones, President of Fairline Boats Asia.
The express cruiser combines the coveted hallmark of the Fairline Targa with forward-thinking design and functionality, and a spacious 3-cabin layout with optional fourth-crew cabin / en-suite.
It provides expansive full-width accommodation with the master cabin / en-suite forward in the hull. A striking sense of open space is enhanced with plenty of natural daylight and a fully flat floor, not widely available in mid-cabin arrangements.
“This model is especially popular for its innovative design, functionality and Targa style with sleek design and high performance,” added Mr Glen Moltoni who will be representing the brand as authorised dealer for New South Wales, in addition to his current representation of Fairline Western Australia.
Complementing the Targa 58 GT’s popularity are the continuing sales of sister Squadron 42 and 65 flybridge motor yachts.
“Sales continue to grow not only in Australia but across the Asia-Pacific, with annual growth of nearly 600 per cent since 2008,” adds Jones.
Fairline Boats has targeted the Australia market with dealerships extending from Western Australia to Queensland and Victoria, representing one of the biggest and most respected global brands.
