Elegantly detailed and adaptable, this sporty cruiser is an outstanding addition to the new generation of Beneteau Express Cruisers. The Gran Turismo 45 combines the seaworthiness and sailing ability of its predecessor, the GT 46, with new technology and amazing versatility.
Designed for comfort in any weather, this 14.78-metre motor yacht sets new standards for functionality & on-board hospitality. Practical and protective, the 45 has the option of having enclosed aft glass doors for full weather protection. The GT 45 shows adaptability to changing conditions and elevates on board liveability to the next level.
The Gran Turismo 45 will be officially unveiled and available for purchase from September 2021.
The hardtop has been redesigned for a greater indoor- outdoor experience, and includes larger side windows, and an electric starboard window that can hinge up on to the hardtop roof. A new standard feature, there is a sunroof in the electric hard top, with an optional glass panel that floods the area in light.
Several more optional features add to the luxury with flip-up headrests, canopy and bimini options, and courtesy lights.
The sun deck is a clever use of space, concealing an ingenious tender garage with electric door. The cockpit features the signature wet bar, complete with sink, fridge and ice maker. U shaped seating and a retractable TV make for a great space to relax and entertain.
The latest technology features an optional Ship Control® package. An on-board assistant, just a tap on the navigation screen or your smartphone allows you to control boat functions such as air-conditioning, zone lighting, music, battery power management and bilge pumps. It also supplies technical information, such as engine data and fluid temperatures.
True to the Beneteau style, the Gran Turismo 45 offers excellent handling on the water, with Air Step® hull technology. Fingertip control, outstanding performance and superb manoeuvrability are some of the defining features of this boat.
At low speed, the boat can be steered easily using a joystick, with an optional bow thruster. In the open sea, the driver will enjoy the thrilling sensation of opening the throttle to the power of Volvo Z-Drive engines, with the option of 2x 380hp or 2 X 440hp.
“We have taken particular care over the design of the boat’s functional aspects, especially in terms of the galley area, which offers facilities similar to that of a domestic kitchen, and the extremely comfortable cabins.”
Below decks, large hull windows allow plenty of natural light to illuminate a warm, elegant interior finished with grey walnut and white lacquered joinery. The spacious area ensures that all guests can enjoy the very best amenities. The galley features a large fridge-freezer, dishwasher and generous storage capacity.
There is a full- width owners’ cabin with a private head with separate shower cubicle. The VIP cabin in the bow area is fitted with scissor berths that guests can arrange as a double bed or two singles. As an option, the seating area in the saloon can be replaced by a 3rd cabin with two single berths.
