The Fairline Targa 27 combines a modern sports cruiser layout which can easily accommodate a family of four in comfort with excellent space both in the cockpit and below for socialising. As the first of the now legendary Bernard Olesinski designed Fairline Targa range they offer excellent performance and sea keeping for their size and are considered by many to be the benchmark for sports cruisers of this size. Temptress has been upgraded and improved to a far higher specification than usually found, including recent engines, bow thruster, GPS navigation, cockpit upholstery, and more. Due to lack of time to use she is now being offered for sale by only her third owners since new, and although in need of some general maintenance including an engine and outdrive service she could easily be one of the best around with this completed.

4 berths in 2 cabins with good headroom. Saloon with large wrap-around seating area forward and central table which drops to form a double berth with storage areas beneath.

Spacious cockpit which has been modernised to a very high standard and now offers comfortable seating for up to 8 adults, consisting of a helm seat to starboard and a large U-shaped seating area aft around a removable cockpit table which drops to form a large sunpad. All exterior upholstery is premium quality marine fabric and in good condition (new 2014) and there are various cup holders and grab rails fitted. The helm position, equipped with full engine instrumentation and controls, has been updated with new gauges and switchgear (new 2014) together with various instruments. The cockpit and bathing platform are laid with simulated teak and aft is a walk-thru door and transom shower. Access to the foredeck is via the side decks with grab rails leading to the bow.
Fairline Targa 27 built to a Bernard Olesinski design by Fairline Boats Ltd in 1989. White GRP planing hull design with deep V forward profile for improved handling and sea keeping. White GRP superstructure and decks with moulded non-slip surfaces. Integrated teak-effect laid GRP bathing platform with stainless steel boarding ladder. Self draining teak-effect laid aft cockpit with walk-thru transom.
Temptress is an excellent example of these capable sports cruisers having benefited from a thorough refit and upgrading of equipment in recent years. Externally all original stripes have been removed, modern Fairline livery has been applied. Highlights include the professionally redesigned and re-trimmed cockpit, bowthruster, high quality teak-effect cockpit sole, and new engines which have been lightly used. She is also in unusually good condition down below having only had three owners from new and being rarely used for more than pleasant day boating, although she would now benefit from new carpet to the main traffic area.

They have been lightly used since and so with servicing and some cosmetic improving she should be in far better mechanical condition than her sisterships.
