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.
The Trident 620 from Outer Reef takes much of what this proven builder has learned from its classic line and puts that wisdom to work in a sprightly semidisplacement hull with pod propulsion and a striking profile.
