Broker's Comments

The original owner is believed to be Pete Townsend of “The Who” fame. The Fairline Targa 37 is a great combination of high-performance with good overnight accommodation. The spacious, split-level cockpit has ample seating both on the bridge deck and on the lower, aft part, while the multi-section cockpit cover gives complete protection from the elements when required.

She’s in lovely condition and well specified with extras like teak decks and bow thruster.
Well documented with the original invoice (made out to Mr P Townsend, The Boathouse, Twickenham).
