Beneteau is planning a new flagship, the Gran Turismo 50, with either two or three staterooms, the company’s trademark French styling, and lots of social and entertaining spaces inside and out.
The large lounge in the cockpit is fully flush with the salon, creating an easy flow of guests inside and out. The cockpit is protected by the overhang from the flybridge, and is meant for entertaining with an exterior galley and grill. The large swim platform is submersible for water sports, and the garage is large enough to hold a Williams Minijet.
The interior, by Andreani Design, is bright, with lots of windows and portholes; it has lots of deep pore walnut woodwork and soft leatherette upholstery. The master stateroom below is full-beam, with an en suite head and shower and dressing room.
The exterior of the new Gran Turismo 50 was designed by Nuvolari & Lenard. The boat has a planing hull and is powered by twin 435-hp Volvo Penta IPS 600s.
