WITH ITS LARGE WINDOWS, vast sundeck and U-shaped cockpit seating, the Gran Turismo 45 fosters conviviali­ty and offers a great indooroutd­oor experience. Add sleek lines and a sporty hull – this 14.78m yacht looks like a luxury sports automobile.

The GT 45 takes all the best features of its predecesso­r, the GT 46, and adds Beneteau’s GT evolution markers. This approach extends to the yacht’s modular design and spacious, elegant interior with grey walnut and white lacquered joinery.

Aft there is a full-width owner’s cabin with a private head and separate shower cubicle. The VIP cabin in the bow is fitted with scissor berths configurab­le as a double bed or two singles. This cabin also has access to the forward head and shower area, which can also be accessed from the saloon.

The GT 45 carries the latest high-tech equipment for easy onboard living. There is an optional electronic­s Pack with Ship Control® technology.

Beneteau’s Air Step® hull provides outstandin­g performanc­e and superb manoeuvrab­ility. At low speed, the boat can be steered easily using the joystick and optional bow thruster. Inboard engines options include Volvo Z-drive D6-380/DPH (2 X 380hp) or Volvo D6-IPS 600 (2 X 440 hp).

The GT 45 will be officially unveiled in September 2021.
