The chance to view a new Botnia Targa doesn’t come along all that of­ten, so the re­place­ment for the pop­u­lar 27.1, with its brand new hull, (slightly) softer lines and tweaked in­te­rior, is worthy of note. This is not a rev­o­lu­tion, how­ever, and the Targa’s rep­u­ta­tion as a fear­some rough weather tool re­mains firmly in­tact. There is a nod to moder­nity with the rounded cor­ners and the op­tional Black­line trim, but that’s about it. On board the prac­ti­cal saloon sep­a­rates the aft cabin, with a dou­ble and sin­gle berth, from a full-height for­ward wet room ac­cessed via dou­ble doors in the mid­dle of the dash. It isn’t the last word in lux­ury but will suf­fice for a cou­ple who want to en­joy a few nights on board. There is a trio of Volvo Penta D6 op­tions up to 400hp, the largest of which is good for nearly 40 knots. CON­TACT Wes­sex Ma­rine Tel: +44 (0)1202 700702.
