Beneteau Gran Turismo 49: Queen of the Sports Cruisers
Join Zuzana Prochazka in Fort Lauderdale for a quick look at the luxurious updates Beneteau has added to the Gran Turismo 49.
Welcome to the Beneteau Gran Turismo collection. There are four boats in this collection: 34, 38, 44, and the 49. We’re on the 49, which comes in two versions: a hard top, and the flybridge version.
The 49 came out in 2011, but Beneteau tweaked it to make it a little more luxurious. And all the details and the finishes are just great. Look at this: the trash can slides right out!
Now your guests won’t be roughing it either. This is the second cabin with its own entrance to the head. Not too shabby.
