    Having had an almost new Targa 34 in 2006, which I must say I still really like the styling of, this boat looks modern and a lot of fun.

    I reckon it will grow on us all as time goes by, as long as it proves reliable and I hope it does well.

    Shabby launch though I must agree.

    Be interesting to see some more photos; I really dont like the colour of the bow sundeck cushions, in the launch environment it looks really drab, white with some coloured piping (boring I know) would even look better.

    Lots to go wrong I suppose, but what the heck, thats boating for you.

    I bet she will perfrom well and handle great.
    No. I’ve already said I think it looks lovely.

    Yep that's about right for what I see in mallorca, but to be fair that's how it always has been for the last 30 years or so at least.

    It's how I use my boat - without the multi million pound villa!

    Perfect for stepping into from a step fitted to the quay (as I have, as they have in Portals, San Antonio, etc).
    Pretty boat.
    But in the rush to launch they seem to have not thought out how to get from the water onto the platform, The platform must be well clear of the water to clear the top of the sterndrive. I don't think the boat is CE compliant without out a ladder and hand hold and maybe there should be bow rails.

    I have not commented on its aesthetics , but I agree it is pretty .
    But FL have not got a monopoly on “ loveliness “ .Theres an awful lot of other loving/ pretty boats similar size out there .
    It’s the practical aspects discussed ^^^ and week diesel option in a beamy boat that I think are the sales the killers .

    Yep, no doubt a rush job! It'll go back to the factory to have one fitted I assume.

    I'm aware of that. This boat has been on the drawing board for a couple of years so Russell was very much in charge at its inception. As for a "ringing endorsement" for the company, Russell was in charge so he build the business from its rebirth so would only have himself to blame! Of course, there are two sides to why he's left and as I only hear these things second hand it wouldn't be right for me to comment.

    Not an easy solution if they are going to integrate into moulding
    Perhaps use one of these

    Mark, Hey, you did say it was lovely but also that it was spoilt:
    "The only thing that spoils it is the anchor. It uses up length and looks fugly. That should have been hidden away IMO."


    I like the look of the whole boat, I particularly like the folding bathing platform and adjustable seating, albeit not too keen on the colour scheme, will reserve any further judgement until seen in the flesh at SIBS!

    Just saying why could Fairline not make something like this. https://youtu.be/hoNj6M5nHVg

    Represents more its history see old T33, T30/33, and T34 where huge successes for them, and how the company expanded in those years.

    Why do they really want to copy Princess and Sunseeker in building fast day boats with a cuddy cabin at 10/11 meters.

    Malta is full of Fairlines no one will be interested for the F-Line while we have about five new V39s/V40s which arrived in the last three years.
    And I can bet my money that you want see any R 35 in Malta. Anyways I will be hugely surprised if one would come.
