The Gran Turismo 45 sets new standards in terms of functionality & on board hospitality. With her large windows, vast sundeck and U-shaped cockpit seating, the GT 45 fosters conviviality and the enjoyment of a great indoor-outdoor experience. Designed with versatility in mind, the Gran Turismo 45 offers unrivalled adaptability to changing conditions, allowing the crew to elevate on board livability to another level. All this in a setting of timeless elegance and refinement. A single glance confirms that the Gran Turismo 45 belongs to the new generation of BENETEAU Express Cruisers.
With her sleek lines and sporty hull, this 48-ft yacht boasts elegant details such as the metallic grey “fashion plates” fixed to the sides of the hard-top and on the engine air intakes. The hard-top and the large hull windows, a feature of the new generation of Express Cruiser, give the boat a sleek, modern look and infuse the interior with soft, natural daylight.
The cockpit of the Gran Turismo 45 is furnished with a vast U-shaped seat that creates a comfortable and convivial area for guests, who sit facing the wet bar that features a sink, fridge and ice-maker. This wetbar contains a retractable TV that can be raised to provide entertainment.
On the lower deck, all the comforts are provided to prolong the escapade at sea: a very beautiful owner’s cabin at the back with its independent shower room, a guest cabin at the bow with a second shower room, a convivial saloon and a large equipped kitchen. The elegant and warm atmosphere offered by the grey walnut wood characterises the new generation of Express-Cruisers.
The salon can be replaced by a 3rd cabin with bunk beds.
A unique blend of high-level comfort and sporty dynamics
With her sporty look and excellent handling on the water, the Gran Turismo 45 guarantees that everyone will have a good time together on the boat. The vast sunbathing area to aft and the wide U-shaped cockpit seating offers passengers an ideal space in which to relax and chat.
Power and Control
With her inboard engines, the Volvo Z-Drive D6–380/DPH (2 x 380 HP) or the Volvo D6-IPS 600 (2 x 440 HP), and its Air Step® hull which has further confirmed BENETEAU’s reputation for producing dynamic, high-performance boats, the Gran Turismo 45 offers outstanding performance and optimal safety, whatever the conditions.
The vast hydraulic swim platform is perfect for enjoying water-based leisure activities. Recreational and practical, the GT45 has an ingenious tender garage hidden under the aft sun pad. This garage will rapidly prove its worth due to its electric winch and cover, and can be converted into a very useful storage area.
The calm, refined atmosphere and bright, airy spaces of the lower deck provide a comfortable area in which to relax and enjoy the cruise. The owner’s suite has a full-width cabin with ensuite with separate shower cubicle, while the VIP cabin in the bow area has scissor berths that occupants can arrange as they wish.
With a hard-top that contains an electric sunroof as standard (with optional glass panel) and, if desired, a large electric hinge up window closing off the rear of the cockpit, the GT45 provides the perfect indoor-outdoor experience, with effective protection against the weather when needed.
