Beneteau Gran Turismo 38

Beneteau launched in 2012 with much bravado Gran Turismo 38. The model represents a new type of motor cruiser within the already extensive range of motorboats. The Beneteau yard discribes the concept: “a sports-orientated Express Cruiser”, naturally equipped with two powerful engines. Aboard this beautiful yacht, during our boat trial run on the Mediterranean Sea, we experience instantaneously ‘La Dolce Vita’ on the water. The Gran Turismo was created from a legacy of Italian Lifestyle full of glamor and luxury. According to the designer Pierangelo Andreani the main sources of inspiration for this boat was the world of prestigious sports cars. You can see the sporty temperament, the design and layout of the yacht. The new sports-orientated Express Cruiser concept combines high performance and comfort aboard. This makes from the Gran Turismo 38 the ideal boat for demanding families who want to sail with style. The Gran Turismo 38 is also equipped with an AIR STEP hull. Patrick Tableau accompanied us during the boat trial, he is one of the designers and co-inventors of the Beneteau AIR STEP hull. Patrick explained to us how the AIR STEP technology works.
