    Default Botnia Targa 44 (lots of pics)

    Hi,

    Took these pics (with my mobile) of the new 44 at the Helsinki Boat Show in Feb and thought I'd share them with you.

    In all it's ruggedness I found it very appealing. Sitting at the helm I got this irresistable urge to take it to the rough stuff. "Bring 'em on" I thought [img]/forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

    Seemed like a rock solid piece of grp.

    Pics aren't that great, but hope you enjoy them.

    Can't even afford a 25.1 and now you post pictures of her big sister with IPS.

    Mmmmmmmm.

    Botnia Targa's are advertised as the 4x4 of the seas and they boast they never cancel a trail for any weather conditions.

    Anyone know what happened during the storm? Did they postpone? [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    It will cost a lot more than 300,000 !
    More like 400,000+ I'll wager.

    looks like a fantastic piece of kit built to go anywhere anytime, from the photographs it also looks very much like a copy of the lochin hull which will explain its talked about sea keeping ability.

    definitely buy one if I wanted a posh fishing boat.

    Who suggested he was 1971Lou?
    Half a dinari for an old ex-boater

    Surely a Lochin is a semi-displacement hull and the Targa is a planing hull ?

    Anyway I like both types of boat. I looked at the Targa 42 before buying the Nimbus and although I liked the idea of rough weather ability the layout was just too, well strange.

    Lochin ? What better for rough weather than a virtual lifeboat ? I looked at them as well but accomodation not really up to cruising with wife / family.
