    Lightly used, Baltic-based 2008 Targa 31+with big specification including twin Volvo D4-300 engines. Very low engine hours. Extremely well equipped Botnia Targa 31.


    Fantastic example of the very popular Botnia Targa 31, this being the late “plus” model. Originally sold to the Uk and brought back to Finland. “Blue Finn” is a low hours, all options ticked version of the Botnia Targa 31. She has been very well maintained since new.

    Her specification highlights include:
    • CE marked to category B
    • Navy Blue topsides
    • Teak laid decks
    • Bow and aft cockpit seating and tables
    • Twin Volvo Penta D4 300hp diesel engine with just 485 hrs run
    • Mastervolt 3,5 kw genrator
    • Bowthruster
    • Bow anchor windlass
    • Hot & cold pressurised water system
    • Eberspacher diesel fired hot air cabin heating
    • Holding tank


    The model replaces the very popular Targa 31 which has been one of Botnia Marin’s best sellers during many years. Targa 32 has got the same look and layout as many other models from the Targa range – but with some distinctive design features unique to the Targa 32. The major structural differences can be found in the larger fore cabin and in the much more spacious toilet in the aft cabin.

    "We have followed our long-term philosophy to make great boats even better. The Targa 31 has been a huge success for us – both among private clients, professionals and authorities. On the basis of our own ideas, input from our dealers and feed-back from our customers we have developed this totally new model. I can proudly say that we are more than happy with the result to give the Targa 31 a worthy successor."


    Oy Botnia Marin Abwas founded by Johan and Britt-Marie Carpelan in 1976. Targa boats are built with precision and care at our boatyards in Western Finland, where modern production technologies complement traditional boat building methods. More than 200 highly qualified professionals design and manufacture boats that perform at the highest possible standard. Their expertise pays tribute to Finland’s unique maritime tradition and place the entire Targa fleet in a class of its own.

    Botnia Marin is a traditional boatyard in the sense that almost everything in being done in-house – in contrary to many yards of today who mostly are working as assembly factories.

    Seaworthy by design. Luxurious in detail. Targa is the pinnacle of offshore boating – renowned for its unparalleled quality and handling. Forty years after its launch, Targa continues to inspire boat lovers everywhere to dream of open waters and memorable voyages.


    “For those who want to go anywhere and do anything – this Finnish powerhouse is a meticulous homage to craftsmanship.”

    …The decks are deep and safe and there are above-waist-height guardrails all the way round, and the ones aft are topped with teak…

    …The aft deck is left completely open and is therefore extremely versatile – it can be used as a dive platform, a watersports changing area, fi shing spot or just somewhere to unfold a pair of deckchairs. The twin transom gates are safe and their large opening creates a real connection with the water when the boat is at anchor and an inviting pathway down to the large bathing platform…

    …There’s a thick rubbing strake around its perimeter which then continues around the rest of the boat, and Botnia have had the foresight to install an inspection hatch in the middle of the platform for unrestricted access to the sterndrives. How useful is that if something gets caught around the prop or a leg is playing up at sea?..

    …Handholds protrude from anywhere that they can be squeezed onto, even the wheelhouse, despite the towering bulwarks…

    …The theme of practicality continues when you enter the saloon via one of two sliding doors. There’s more wood in here than in a sauna factory and it’s all of the very highest quality, with every drawer snapping shut with an engineered ‘clack’. The main change over the previous models is one of the simplest alterations but it works brilliantly. The double navigator’s seat to port now has a hinged backrest so that with a mere push it’s reversed and joins up perfectly with the dinette…

    …The other news is in the cabins, which are located at either end of the boat. The forward cabin, accessed by double doors and a hatch which hisses open on twin gas struts, now has standing headroom at the bottom of the companionway stairs so you can get changed without developing a kink in your spine…

    …the Targa 32 positively relishes the challenges of a chop. Even crossing the wake fl at out leading with the chine the boat refused to slam, shudder, wobble or even seem the least bit perturbed by this onslaught of unsavoury driving. This is a boat you will take on a 120-mile round trip for lunch even if the weather is a bit iffy…

    The outside helm position does add a valuable extra element to helming the 32 though, both at speed and when it comes to berthing, where the helmsman’s view of the stern is excellent. In contrast, the lower driving position is right on the money in every way…It’s great to be able to slide the side door open to get the breeze in your face too, but in the wheelhouse with the doors shut and the engines’ grunts sealed away in the cockpit you can cruise at 25-30 knots and it’s very civilised indeed…
