The Beneteau GT 49 Fly is the new flagship of the Grand Turismo range and looks perfectly suited to the job, featuring a spiral staircase to the bridge, a large main saloon, and a galley with its own atrium. See for yourself in this short video recorded at Cannes Boat Show.

The aforementioned spiral staircase leaves acres of space on the main deck for more wraparound seating out on deck and a very spacious enclosed saloon area. The galley is down below but far from enclosed thanks to the wide open staircase. There are three double cabins with the guest room in the bow and the master suite astern. The Gran Turismo range is the "catwalk model" of the Beneteau power range. But if sportsboats, trawlers or power-cruisers interest you see reviews and videos of the Beneteau Flyer 6Beneteau Monte Carlo MC5, and the Beneteau ST 50.
