These boats are positioned between day boat use, and use for family cruises. For long time, they have been the best way for boaters, to move from outboard models to inboards .
So far, the Benéteau Yard had four models on this market segment, with the Gran Turismo 40, Gran Turismo 46 and Gran Turismo 50, the latter being available in two versions, Coupé (standard version of the market), or with Sportfly.
The coming months will see the offer of Benéteau grow with four new models: two hull lengths, 32 and 36 feet, each one in inboard or outboard versions.
The first-ever visual design presented by the French shipyard, which concerns the Benéteau Gran Turismo 32 OB (out-board), shows the differenciation brought on the market: with its full-beam cockpit, its wide-glazed wheelhouse and access to the front sundeck by a front door, this model resumes the innovations discovered on the very innovating Benéteau Flyer 10, a kind of cross-over between an open sundeck, and a bowrider.
We will soon go back to these two developments in a forthcoming edition of Yachting Art Magazine, knowing that the Bénéteau Gran Turismo 32 will be unveiled at the Yachting Festival in Cannes, and the Benéteau Gran Turismo 36 in spring, probably in Miami.
This is moving in the Express-Cruisers' market!!
