New Model: Beneteau 34 Flyer Gran Turismo

Presented at the fall of 2010, the Flyer Gran Turismo range from Beneteau replaces and reedits the small Monte Carlos. The 34 Flyer Gran Turismo launched at the Paris show completes the so far two model line up of this new range from Beneteau. As was the case for the 38 launched in September which reedited the 37 Monte Carlo, the 34 Flyer Gran Turismo builds its foundations of hull and layout both inside and outside on the 32 Monte Carlo. For this new model designer Andreani updates the hard top super structure looks, now with more windows and having an extended roof cover better the aft part of the cockpit. Interior accommodation offers a four berth layout; convertible Vee-berth to fore, double cabin at mid ship, separate shower head, and galley. Power is from two choices of twin Volvo petrol 300hp, or diesel 200hp with dual propeller stern drives, and the patented Air Step delivering better efficiency.
