She's BENETEAU designed, American made, and her playground includes the rivers, lakes, and coasts of North America. The new Gran Turismo 36 boasts ingeniously designed living spaces that can easily accommodate up to seven and a Zipwake dynamic trim control system to make challenging navigation second-nature. She even comes with an outboard option if you're looking for more space and better fuel economy. Let the games begin!

DESIGN : Style & Design / Andreani Design

Exterior design

The exterior deck layout is fully optimized for comfort and entertaining on board. Two bench seats face forward at the helm station, so four people can enjoy all the thrills of navigation. The electric sunroof allows the whole area to be bathed in pleasant natural light. The natural light extends to a spacious cockpit lounge area which has room for up to seven passengers. Cleverly interchangeable, the aft bench seats fold back and serve as headrests for the extensive sunbathing area facing aft. Cooking meals is a joy in the outdoor galley, which is just forward of the aft swim platform. 

Interior Design

The forward peak has generous space for a real owner cabin with a full-sized bed and ample storage.  The aft cabin provides two extra berths separated by a door for onboard guests.  Midship you will find a cozy lounge to port with a functional galley space fitted with high quality appliances.  A best in class head arrangement offers separate shower and toilet spaces completely partitioned from the vanity.


The Gran Turismo 36 is the latest express cruiser to join the BENETEAU powerboat dealer offering. She is the first Gran Turismo developed in conjunction with our product design team in the USA and built here in Cadillac, Michigan. Our first Grand Turismo available with an optional outboard engine package, she presents 3 key attributes: design, accessibility, and performance.


The Gran Turismo 36 maintains the DNA of her range, with the addition of some innovative touches. A large built-in sun mattress on the foredeck provides a safe and very pleasant place to relax when the boat is underway. With an optional sun awning, it will quickly be adopted by anyone addicted to afternoon naps.


Accessibility on the Gran Turismo 36 is incomparible. Two private cabins, large entertainment spaces and optional swim platform extension create a cruising dream. The combination of protection, privacy and pure joy make the Gran Turismo 36 the ultimate boat to enjoy the open air.


With engine power options of either 600 or 700 hp (2 x 300 or 2 x 350 hp), she can reach up to 40 MPH. With the optional joystick pilot system from Mercury in addition to a steering wheel, maneuveringthe fast Gran Tursimo 36 is easy. Fitted with an optional bow thruster and two Garmin 12" screens, she takes navigation assistance to new levels. 


The forward peak has generous space for a real owner cabin with a double bed and storage. An aft guest cabin provides two extra berths that can be brought together or separated depending on the crew on board. The shower space has a shower cubicle and washbasin, and the head is separate.
