New & Notable Boats

Targa 46 Those familiar with the Finnish boat builder Targa know about their 20- or 30-foot rugged boats with exceptional use of interior space. Launched in 2017 but now available on the West Coast, the flagship Targa 46 (T46) is a go-anywhere motoryacht that should be as at home off the Washington coast as its native Baltic Sea. Right away, one notices the emphasis on open water cruising and seakeeping with features like the relatively narrow beam (13’) and open working deck. Targas are known for their flybridges, often diminutive on their smaller models like the 25.1. There’s more room to breathe up there on the T46 with seating for two at the helm and nav station and L-shaped seating. The decks are deep and sheltered by high rails. A swim step and deployable table in the cockpit will be enjoyed in calm waters.

As far as performance is concerned, there are three standard twin Volvo engine packages offered with the T46, including a 870-horsepower one with IPS drives. Depending on the engine package, the builder reports a cruising speed of 23 to 31 knots and a maximum speed of a lively 36 to 41 knots. The T46 seems to sit in that nebulous express cruiser category with some of the ammenities of a trawler with with the pep of faster planing builds. Targas are known for their Swiss Army knife-like interiors, somehow multitasking every inch of space to maximize amenities aboard to offer bigger boat experiences in smaller models (notably on the 27.2, one of their mainstay builds). The T46 brings a lot of that clever use of space to bear, but the need is less on yacht

this size. The generous windows bring in plenty of light to the open cabin, and the salon, galley, and helm are all part of an open space. Berths and heads are below. The T46 leads the Targa fleet and is probably worth a look if you’ve got open water ambitions but don’t want to sacrifice the finer things in life. If interested in more information or pricing, you can contact local dealer Cardinal Yacht Sales.
