Announced at the fifteenth edition of this glamorous yachting event, known as the Oscars of the yachting industry, the Targa 43 OPEN beat stiff competition from luxury yacht manufacturers across the globe to secure the highly coveted title of Best Exterior Design in the 14-18m category.
The star of the night was Fairline’s all-new Targa 43 OPEN, which launched at this year’s Cannes Yachting Festival. Featuring the award-winning design of Alberto Mancini this brand new model is set to be a real hit on the market, with all 2018 and 2019 production slots already filled.
The high profile event took place on the Ritz Carlton beach, during the Cannes Yachting Festival. 18 trophies were awarded to the finest yachts launched over the past 12 months, followed by a parade of 30 yachts.
Russell Currie, Managing Director of Fairline Yachts, comments on the award win, “The launch of the Targa 43 signifies an exciting new stage for Fairline Yachts and this highly coveted award is testimony to our dedication to create exciting boats of the highest quality that suit our discerning global customer base. We would like to thank the judges for their consideration and decision, along with every member of the Fairline team, whose hard work has made this incredible achievement possible.”
