Projects: Beneteau 34 Flyer Gran Turismo, Beneteau 38 Flyer Gran Turismo

Beneteau presents a new range with the new 38 and 34 Flyer Gran Turismo projects to make there debut at the fall of 2010. Pictured above is the smallest of the two new Flyer Gran Turismo the 34. Designed by Andreani the 34 will be based on the lines of the 32 Monte Carlo which in fact it will replace, but features an extended longer hard top, large view windows, and more spacious bathing platform. The 34 Flyer Gran Turismo will also feature a large U-shaped dinette to fore versus the L-shaped settee, single berth combination of the old 32. Below the water line on the living part of the 34, will be the much acclaimed patented Air-Step hull with extended plane aft. Pictured above is the larger of the new Flyer Gran Turimo the 38, which is also further development of the 37 Monte Carlo that it replaces. Again just as the 34 the difference here is for a longer extended hard top, bigger view windows outside, and expanded platform. Below the same theme for the 37 Monte Carlo is repeated with two cabins, an L-shaped saloon, and galley composing the accommodation area. Power for the Pierangelo Andreani designed Sport Cruiser which also features the patented Air-Step and extended plane hull will be from a maximum power of twin Volvo 300hp diesels. Launching is scheduled for Cannes in September. www.beneteau.com
