Beginning on Tuesday, August 20, 2019 in Annapolis, Md., BENETEAU will host a five-day launch event introducing its new Flyer 32 outboard and Gran Turismo 36 express cruiser equipped with either Twin MerCruiser Stern Drive Inboard Engines or an optional Twin Mercury Outboard Engine package.

“We’re excited to introduce our newest models to dealers from all over North America, their VIPs and the press during the course of five days. It will be a fun exposition of boating, and there’s no better place to host such an event than in historic Annapolis – a true boating town,” said Jean-François Lair, president of BENETEAU America.

The week will begin with dealer training and sea trials on August 20 and August 22, with a dedicated press day falling on August 21. Following the dealer training, there will be a day dedicated exclusively to First Dates for BENETEAU dealer VIP clients. The launch week will conclude with an open house at Clark’s Landing located at 1442 Ford Road in Shady Side, Md., where the public can check out many BENETEAU powerboat models, including the new Flyer 32 and Gran Turismo 36.

The new Flyer 32 is more than a sporty, fast day boat. She is equipped to accommodate overnight guests with a cabin, which includes two double berths, and a head with a shower. There is plenty of seating and deck space to entertain 11 passengers comfortably.

The new Gran Turismo 36 express cruiser is the first BENETEAU in its line to be developed in collaboration with the product design team in the U.S. and will be built at the company’s production facility in Cadillac, Michigan.

For people interested in attending the First Date event or the Open House at Clark’s Landing, please contact your local BENETEAU dealer. To find a dealer near you, visit https://www.beneteau.com/us/beneteau-network.
