GRAN TURISMO 46
THE SECOND IN THE NEW SPORT-CRUISER RANGE IS UNVEILED
The GT 46, the latest addition to the recently-launched Gran Turismo range, made its first appearance at the Nautic de Paris in December this year. It is the second model in this new generation of Beneteau-designed Sports Cruisers, and although similar in style and spirit to the GT 40, it represents a significant step forwards in terms of customisation, quality of materials and finish. Despite being resolutely sporty in character, it is also designed to ensure high levels of safety combined with a sumptuous décor.
The GT 46 hard top has electrically-powered side glazing so that you can enjoy that “open” feeling. A fully opening glass door also maintains this impression and is available on option. The cockpit seats are spread out in this configuration, giving you plenty of space to enjoy time together. The aft seat converts into sun loungers at the push of a button, lowering the seat backs and raising the foot rests. This makes the rear of the cockpit ideal for relaxation.
The glass door separates the cockpit from the exterior when it is closed. In this case, the cockpit becomes a more private space, protected from the weather and onlookers.
The second galley is located in the cockpit (behind the co-pilot’s seat) or at the stern of the boat, according to preference. In this layout you have an additional seat in the cockpit. Available with a choice of two or three cabins, the GT 46 offers exceptional guest accommodation, unrivalled on this size of speedboat.
The generous motorized swim platform, on option, lowers to just below sea level, affording easy access to the water for water sports. It also stabilizes the boat at anchor. The GT 46 incorporates the latest generation Beneteau-designed Air Step®2 planing hull, and for the first time offers a choice of a Volvo IPS 600 motor or a Z Drive, with power of up to 2 x 400 HP. Safe, easily manoeuvrable and with its sporting characteristics, this new unit promises to provide the maximum in sailing pleasure.
