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.
To showcase its Prestige line of motoryachts and express cruisers, French boatbuilder Jeanneau welcomes select guests to its impressive factory in Les Herbiers in western France. Prospective boat buyers, dealers, and a few lucky journalists got a glimpse of the entire boatbuilding process from the design and engineering studios to the yard where the boats are loaded for truck delivery. Oh and there was a really nice lunch with a little champagne as well!
