Allure and Performance – an Assertive and Positive Identity
The Flyer Gran Turismo 44 and 49 grab the eye at first glance. With their very feminine curved and determined lines, it does not take much imagination to appreciate the pleasure and the power awaiting to be unleashed.

Following the Flyer Gran Turismo 34 and 38 that came out in 2010, they are establishing themselves as innovative and seductive luxury boats. You will find outstandingly enhanced and optimised living spaces, a standard of equipment and choice of materials that are difficult to equal, and recognised engine performance thanks to well-proven engines – a slight air of la dolce vita combining pleasure, the art of good living, sporty luxury and so on.

Beneteau Flyer Gran Turismo 44 – Cruiser in optimal mode
The Flyer Gran Turismo 44 highlights comfort and well-being. Designed for cruising, it reconciles space, power and speed … whilst retaining a size that remains very easily manoeuvrable. A clever layout increases the space, which gives an impression of masses of room.

Clearly defined living areas
The cockpit is a living area. The after part, laid out as a saloon and exterior galley, will take up to eight people on comfortable U-shaped bench seats. The opening roof, sliding side windows and wide bathing platform aft allow the most to be made of life at
anchor or alongside. A garage compartment is provided to house a tender of up to 2.40m (outboard engine in position).

The forward end of the cockpit is kept for the companionway to the saloon and the driving position which is fully fitted with top of the range equipment. All-round vision, efficient as well as delightful, is the result of large, discreetly tinted windscreens.

Down below, the living area straightaway gives a feeling of well-being. The saloon comprises a real fitted galley (of particular note are the 218L fridge-freezer and a micro-wave), a convertible saloon with a Bose hi-fi system (in option), and is extended by two real ‘bedrooms’, each having its own head compartment attached. Many stowage spaces and lockers have been added. Light wells and wide ports give charm to the light in the cabins and saloon, flattering the space and
quality of the materials.

The Flyer Gran Turismo 44 concentrates the best technology: the famous Air Step®* hull (designed by Engineers : Patrick tableau, Maud Tronquet and Rémi Laval-Jeantet) combined with Stern Drive propulsion (2 x 370HP Volvo D6).Performance and Manoevrability Objective
The Flyer Gran Turismo 44 concentrates the best technology: the famous Air Step®* hull (designed by Engineers : Patrick tableau, Maud Tronquet and Rémi Laval-Jeantet) combined with Stern Drive propulsion (2 x 370HP Volvo D6). This brilliant combination gives the boat extraordinary stability, great comfort under way, acceleration that is both powerful and flexible, as well as ease of
handling optimised by the Joystick on the control panel.

The luxury and comfort of a motor yacht!
The world of luxury and nobility stands out on these boats. Thought out in terms of modern design, they favour top-of the-range sociability and comfort, an ideal of life on board that is emphasised by equipment and fittings that are at least as good as those at home.

The Space is Modular, the design allies luxury
In the Hard Top or Flybridge version, the Flyer Gran Turismo 49 and 49 Fly retain a sleek and sporty elegance whilst displaying generous proportions where space never seems to be lacking! Played out on different levels, the living areas follow and intersect without imposing on each other.

The cockpit acts as the heart of the boat.The cockpit acts as the heart of the boat.
Huge and comfortable, it can accommodate six people around the table which, mounted on an electric foot, transforms the saloon space into a vast sunbed in the twinkling of an eye.

Central and clever, it maintains the flow between the various spaces:
– towards the forward end of the boat and the sunbathing area;
– towards the stern platform and the tender garage;
– towards the “terrace with a sea view” of the flybridge, in the Fly version.

Designed as a mezzanine, the wheelhouse is completely enclosed by a wide glazed picture window. It focuses on an elegant saloon and the driving position fitted with the latest navigation technology. Sliding windows, opening roof and glazed picture window bring maximum light to this relaxation and social space. Down below, the high-tech galley, the cabins and, according to the option chosen, a third double cabin or cosy saloon are bathed in natural light. The cabins are vast with King-size berths and each has its own head compartment with separate shower.

Performance and safety
Fitted with the internationally recognised IPS Volvo propulsion (2 x IPS 600), the Flyer Gran Turismo 49 and 49 Fly display very respectable performance and totally reasonable fuel consumption. The Bénéteau powerboat hulls bring stability and comfort under way even when the sea has built up. The driving position has all the boat’s controls (these are identical at the second driving position on the Fly version) and more particularly the Joystick to facilitate manoeuvring without stress, with precision, in difficult places, and including in strong cross winds.

In the Fly version
The “terrace with a sea view” is not reserved for the driver. Accessible via an elegant spiral staircase, the flybridge is a real living room on the water with a long settee around a wide table. The driving position comprises the control panel and two tub seats.
Protected by guardrails, the flybridge remains very pleasant under way, even for the passengers, and gives an intense feeling of freedom aided by the 360° panoramic view!

With these latest models Bénéteau complete their range of Express Cruisers, and make a name for themselves in the luxury power boat market, an appearance that is notable thanks to accommodation worthy of luxury motor yachts, to a modern, assertive design and to the sea keeping qualities cherished by Bénéteau and recognised on the power boat market.
