Press comments

Motorboat & Yachting, February 2007
"We were tempted to give this award to the new 42 but there’s something about the 31 that we find even more appealing. For starters it has the pace and agility to embarrass many a so-called sport-cruiser. Then there’s the build quality, which shares more in common with a Swiss bank vault than a boat. Even the rugged styling and functional layout has an enduring appeal that keeps used ones in demand. But above all it’s a fantastically usable boat that every one of us would love to own.

Motorboat Monthly, February 2007
"The entire Targa range is worthy of praise. Boldly and with utter certainty, Targa has followed its own path, reminding us of the virtues of fine sea keeping, boating practicality and substantial build.   But of all the boats in its range the 31 stands out for its unique combination of cruising comforts, excellent deck area and the sort of thrilling performance that would many a so-called sport-cruiser run and hide.
This is the boat we would all own if our heads had the whole say. In fact, there are plenty of hearts out there that would agree.
