About Beneteau Gran Turismo
The good life enters the fast lane.
The Gran Turismo is the result of Beneteau’s relentless pursuit of superior performance, seaworthiness, comfort and style in the powerboat range. Inspired by the world of Italian high performance cars, we are excited to introduce four models in the Gran Turismo range to the North American market. Beneteau collaborated with the globally renowned Italian designer,
Pierangelo Andreani to create a powerboat series featuring modern, powerful lines and a ‘sports classic’ feel. Reflecting on its 120 years of experience building the world’s most respected and coveted sailing yachts, Beneteau brings its creativity and mastery in intelligent use of space along with its proven ability to engineer technologically advanced powerboats to this new range.
The famous Italian designer, Pierangelo Andreani began his career designing for the car industry (Ferrari, Maserati, Benelli, Guzzi motorbikes). He joined the Beneteau project team to create a whole new range of fast open boats.
True beauty lies just beneath the surface.
