The Gran Turismo 50 is the flagship in the Beneteau Gran Turismo line. This line is the Express Cruiser or Sport Cruiser line. They are boats with a sleek, sporty style that offer high performance, fun and sporty handling, and most importantly a layout design turned to life outside and on-board conviviality.
Gran Turismo 50: Harmony between interior and exterior
The Gran Turismo 50 is the third generation of elegant, sporty designs in the GT line. Developed by the very famous italian design studio Nuvolari and Lenard. And finally, the Gran Turismo 50 has an absolutely unique layout concept that is called « Full Space » and offers incomparable light and conviviality.
The Gran Turismo 50’s huge bathing platform has several key features. First of all, the optional aft galley, equipped with a grill and a worktop. The second is of course the optional hydraulic platform. The platform descends to below the waterline and can store a jet-ski or a tender up to a maximum of 350 kilos. Above all, it makes swimming even more enjoyable. Finally, the last feature is the tender garage that can store a Williams Minijet 280, or any semi-rigid tender of up to 2 meters 90 in length while inflated and with the engine mounted.
A bimini is available as an option to protect the entire fly-bridge from the sun. The Sportfly Gran Turismo 50 is really a welcoming, comfortable space that offers all the desired features on a flybridge, but remains perfectly integrated with the sporty line of the Gran Turismo 50.
On the fore decks, there is a huge sun-lounger with adjustable backrests for more comfort.
The teak cockpit table can be lowered and transformed into a large sun-lounger with an additional cushion.
On the Hardtop version, the cockpit can be protected by a telescopic bimini that covers the entire cockpit.
On the Sportfly version, a canvas extends the flybridge to cover and protect the cockpit. There is also an optional enclosure that completely closes the cockpit to offer an additional living space.
The bay window can be used in two ways. First the center panel slides to starboard for direct access to the interior and easy ventilation. Second, the other panels slide to starboard and make room for the large seating area, which connects the outside and the inside.
Gran Turismo 50: Light and space for more enjoyment
The cabinet to starboard at the entrance is directly accessible from the
All these functions are also adjustable via switches on either side of the screen. All the Ship Control functions are available on the owner’s tablet.
The cockpit has great ventilation thanks to the huge sunroof and the porthole that is directly forward of the pilot.
The Gran Turismo 50 is available in two versions, with two or three cabins. In the two-cabin version there is a saloon below decks facing the galley. In the three-cabin version this space is partitioned off and has two beds that can be joined to make one. The rest of the layout is similar for both versions.
We find this ample 1.85 meters of headroom on either side of the berth. The cabin takes up the entire beam of the boat. It is filled with a beautiful natural light thanks to two large panoramic windows located on each side of the berth. It has a large wardrobe with a full length mirror, six storage lockers which are located under these two mattresses on either side of the berth, and the berth lifts for access to three more lockers to store suitcases.
Under the companionway there is direct access to the optional washing machine, the central vacuum, storage and especially the electrical panel that brings together all the boat’s electrical functions.
Sleek styling, technology, innovation, performance and conviviality are the words that describe the Gran Turismo 50 Hardtop and Sportfly.
