At first sight, her innovative, dramatic styling makes an immediate impression on the senses. One that is, to say the least, powerful. Then, when you step aboard, you discover that while the 47 boasts a great many innovations, she has also inherited all the key elements of the successful Targa design philosophy including the signature feature of the GRAN TURISMO models - the beautifully engineered retractable hardtop. The story just gets better and better as you explore the incredibly spacious cockpit, the magnificent saloon, the well-equipped galley and the two large, comfortable cabins, each with its own en suite. The large stern bathing platform with its neatly integrated garage for tenders or water toys, is yet another reason you might imagine yourself having a lot of fun on this elegant and impressive Targa.

Manufacturer Provided Description

In the original development brief and plans for the award-winning Targa 47 we declared our intention of creating a model to Redefine the Art of Express Cruising. That this has been achieved so successfully is due in large part to the many advances unveiled at the earlier launch of our flagship model, the widely acclaimed Targa 62. Her leading-edge innovations and powerfully dramatic styling led the way and the all-new Targa 47 inherits the key elements of her elegant design philosophy, including the signature feature of all our GRAN TURISMO models, the powered retractable hardtop. The story continues with an incredibly spacious cockpit, a large stern bathing platform and an integrated garage for tenders and water toys ... not to mention the magnificent saloon, galley and two large cabins, each with its own en suite.
