Sun decks galore on display in this new Beneteau Flyer 8.8 Sundeck video: two on the wide bow, either side of the forward hatch and one fold-out one at the stern, plus seating for eight at the aft table. The ideal boat for a party of sun-worshippers out for a day of devotional duties, as reviewer Alex Smith explains in the video clip below.



So what else does the typical party of sun-bathing cruisers actually need on board ship? Well, Beneteau has made full use of the eight metres and provided a galley, separate heads and two double cabins – although the aft transverse bunk is only 1.7m long (5ft 8in) so ideal for kids or adults capable of diagonal sleeping.

At the helm, there is a double seat and, most importantly, the fridge is within reach. For more info, see:
