Protector launched its new Targa 30 as an upgrade from the 28, with more space inside for livability, a longer hull for speed and stability, and an extended pilothouse and aft deck for comfort. This all-weather performer has a 23-degree, solid-fiberglass hull surrounded by Hypalon UV-resistant tubes with seven separate air chambers. The rugged, go-anywhere Targa 30 can reach 65 miles per hour with twin 300-horsepower Mercury Verados. One editor commented that this was his favorite ride of the year.
