BENETEAU’S NEW FLYER 8

Beneteau Flyer 8

 

Aug 28, 2018

With the launch of the two Flyer 8 SPACEdeck and SUNdeck boats next September, the range (started in 2014) reaches maturity with this new generation of bestsellers.

Reiterating the concept that brought success to Beneteau in the day-boat segment of the powerboat market, the two new Flyer 8s have the same hull development, equipped with Air Step2, which offers quick lift-off, comfort and great stability. The boat comes with two different deck plans and interiors: the SPACEdeck has a central console, while the SUNdeck offers a double cabin under the large sunbathing area. Extremely spacious and practical, another major feature of the two new Flyer 8 boats is that they are easily transported.

In line with the current market trends, the single-engine boat has much to offer in terms of ergonomics, cost effectiveness and performance. The limited space occupied by the engine makes it easier to move about the stern. The two new Flyer 8 powerboats are also much lighter with a reduction of their light weight of nearly 7%. As for performance, the 350 hp engine power developed in partnership with Suzuki is more than satisfactory with top speeds guaranteed at 43 knots, offering plenty of excitement to thrill seekers!

The Flyer 8 SPACEdeck is extremely versatile and perfectly suited to day boating programmes – swimming, fishing or exploring with the family. The deck plan makes movement on board easy and there is a wide choice of fittings. The optional in-built fishing station replaces the bench seat with a counter, live bait well, rod holder and various other fittings. An elegant fishing T-top completes the fittings, offering effective shelter from the sun and the rain

The Flyer 8 SUNdeck has a large sun lounger at the bow, with port and starboard walkways redesigned to make it easier to reach. These large passageways on either side of the driver station make movement on board much safer. This model also stands apart for its top-quality living areas inside.

Lead by Executive Director Marie-France MacKinnon and executed by her team and their public affairs firm, BlueSky Strategy Group, the results were impressive. The NMMA Canada Board of Directors were organized into teams with business interests and special skills matched up to politicians and senior bureaucrats to most effectively present the marine industry’s agenda of issues.

As a back-up to modern electronics, it’s a vital navigational tool that belongs on every commercial and recreational boat.
