New Model: Beneteau 50 Gran Turismo Sportfly

With the launch of the 50 Gran Turismo Sportfly Beneteeau completes the circle of its sport cruiser range which now is all redesigned to the lines of Italian from Venice designers Nuvolari and Lenard.  The new Beneteau 50 Gran Turismo Sportfly is a border model just going over the fifteen meter size to be considered a yacht, and adding a sport flybridge on the standard Gran Turismo 50 hard top.  Access to the flybridge is from the stair case ladder to starboard.  The flybridge offers a layout with C-shaped dinette and forward passenger settee to port side, and helm station to starboard.  For the remaining the Beneteau 50 Sportfly is identical to the standard Gran Turismo with the choice for three or two cabins, and a spacious L-shaped galley located on the lower deck.  The Beneteau 50 Gran Turismo Sportfly is powered by twin Volvo 435hp engines with IPS pod propulsion.
