Oy Botnia Marin is already entering the third generation of the popular model with the newly developed and extremely robust Targa 27.2.
After 200 boats of the type Targa 27 built ( first launched in 1991) and 400 of the type Targa 27.1, the third generation of this robust and solidly built classic by Oy Botnia Marin now follows with the Targa 27.2. The Targa 27.2 is a completely new development, which is slightly longer and wider than its predecessor.
Straightforward and functional Walkaround concept, easily accessible outside steering position on the small flybridge and sliding doors on both sides in the cabin remain with the new 27.2. On deck, the new Targa remains simple and functional; V-shaped bench seat in the bow, wide, safe running decks with high ship's sides, a minimalist cockpit with four benches and access to the small bathing platform and lots of storage compartments in the benches and in the foredeck.
More space in the saloon The Pilothouse of the 27.2 is more spacious than its predecessor's and, in addition to a three-seater bench at the rear with folding table on port, offers a versatile front passenger seat that can be used both in the direction of travel and in the opposite direction thanks to the swivelling backrest, thus extending the dining area. In front of the passenger seat, to the left of the companionway, there is a small pantry with sink and two-burner hob. To the right of the companionway to the foredeck is the small interior steering position, which offers a good overview. Below deck the layout of the Targa 27.2 has not been changed, the companionway to the bow leads to the bathroom with toilet and washbasin. The companionway in the middle of the stern becomes accessible by folding the centre section of the stern bench upwards and leads into the astonishingly spacious aft cabin, where two double berths offer up to four people a comfortable place to sleep on board the 27.2.
Proven design The Targa 27.2's rebuilt engine compartment now offers enough space to choose from Volvo Penta's full range of diesel engines (D6-330, D6-370 and D6-400) and also facilitates maintenance. Equipped with the 400 hp D6-400, the 27.2 can reach up to 38 knots and with a cruising speed of around 16 knots, ranges of up to 300 nautical miles are possible. The proven hull design of the 27.2 allows for a wide range of applications and also allows safe sailing even in extreme weather conditions.
