Targa 30

Built as the logical next generation of the original PROTECTOR 28, the PROTECTOR TARGA 30 successfully builds on the design, comfort and unrivaled performance of this iconic boat. With 2’ more waterline and an additional 1800 lbs in hull weight, the PROTECTOR TARGA 30 provides the latest in innovation and performance for owners looking for more room, enhanced ergonomics and bigger power in a yet still easily trailerable boat.

The PROTECTOR TARGA 30 is the ultimate performance vessel, customizable for any utility or recreational mission. The range of design considerations is limitless, and can include auto windless, bow thruster, up to 10 storage areas, wider cabin bunks, multiple flooring and seating options. The cockpit panel has been redesigned to accommodate larger displays & electronics, better overall cockpit ergonomics, and a higher steering wheel placement for more room at the helm. Six additional square feet of aft deck (vs. the 28′) for provides easier boarding, more legroom, and the option for a stowable tables or other equipment.

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 and V-8 four stroke Outboards.

Increased hull length while maintaining the same beam and translates to 300 lbs of additional buoyancy for the perfect balance of boat and outboards for getting to where you’re going with confidence regardless of the sea state.
