Targa 30'


The 30′ TARGA Rigid Hull Inflatable Boats successfully combines design and comfort for unrivaled performance on the water. The Protector 30′ TARGA Rigid Hull Inflatable Boats is the latest in performance innovation on the water, the TARGA 30′ was designed to fill a void in Protectors product lineup to enhance on the successes of the 28′ model for those requiring more room, enhanced ergonomics and bigger power, yet still easily trailerable.

The Protector 30′ TARGA Rigid Hull Inflatable Boats is the perfect any weather vessel that can be customized to suit your year round boating needs. Basic design considerations include a large anchor locker for underbow automated anchoring, and wider bunks inside cabin for more comfort. The dashboard has also been redesigned to accommodate larger displays and better ergonomics for electronics, and higher steering wheel placement for more room at the helm. 6 additional square feet of aft deck (compared to our 28′ TARGA Rigid Hull Inflatable Boats) for easier boarding and the option for a stow able picnic table.

The helm has been redesigned for the option of shock mitigating captain’s chairs, which permit cruising at high speeds in rough conditions while maintaining excellent visibility, control, and comfort.

The engine wells have also been enlarged to accommodate today’s larger V-6 four stroke Outboards.

Increased hull length while maintaining the same beam and dearies translates to 180 lbs of additional buoyancy for the perfect balance of boat and outboards for getting to where you’re going regardless of the sea state with complete confidence.

The sense of security this boat brings makes it worth its weight in gold.
