PERFECT ENTERTAINER

The Gran Turismo 46 designed by Nuvolari and Lenard is a European icon. This light-filled sports cruiser has two
magnificent cabins, an outdoor galley and a seamless indooroutdoor cockpit perfect for entertaining.

This elegant GT46 cuts effortlessly through even the roughest swell thanks to the planing hull with Beneteau unique Air Step® 2 technology

The powerful Volvo IPS 600 diesel engines (with “joystick” parking) deliver impressive acceleration and a top speed of 30+ knots.

Normally a superyacht feature … the large electronically controlled submersible swim platform holds 350 kgs and is perfect for relaxing with water lapping over you.


LIGHT FILLED INTERIOR

The interior of the Gran Turismo 46 is pure Italian indulgence and elegance.

Bathed in natural light and perfectly ventilated, the living spaces radiate well-being emphasized by the elegance of the materials.

Alpi matt walnut woodwork, padded and lacquered furnishings, soft-touch leatherette upholstering and Corian® worktops are just some of the choices that combine to deliver sumptuous luxury.

Below decks, the Gran Turismo 46 offers outstanding accommodation with two indulgent cabins.

The stunning owner’s cabin provides ocean views with windows either side stretching across the whole beam of the boat with private ensuite.

The VIP guest cabin features a convertible double bed and bathroom including separate shower.

The L-shaped galley is well equipped with a double ceramic hob, fridge-freezer and plenty of storage.

And, as expected each of the cabins and the main saloon are fully air conditioned, meaning year-round comfort for all on board.


MOTORBOAT & YACHTING REVIEW

If you are looking for a sports cruiser loaded with versatility then the Beneteau Gran Turismo 46 delivers in spades.

You have the choice of whether or not to have cockpit doors open or closed, and the 2-cabin layout and powerful IPS engines make this the absolute perfect sports cruiser.


BOATTEST.COM FEATURES REVIEW

Replacing her 44-foot predecessor, this larger Beneteau Gran Turismo 46 incorporates a redesigned main deck and cockpit, which includes two large electrically reclining seats.

The Gran Turismo 46 offers the handling ease of Beneteau’s previous smaller model while making use of many of the details found in her 49’ big sister. This once again illustrates Beneteau’s ongoing attention to the evolution of technology and customer feedback.

Propelled by dual Volvo Penta 435-hp IPS 600 engines, and Air Step 2 engineering provides increased fuel efficiency and manoeuvrability.


PERFORMANCE BOATING REVIEW

Air Step® 2 technology is the incorporation of a hydrodynamic forward and aft hull design that allows the Gran Turismo 46 to
operate at planing speeds on a “cushion” of air. Air is sucked under the boat from vents on the chines and forward and exits
at the transom. By reducing water adhesion to the hull and reducing friction, the boat becomes easier to push. What
results is reduced fuel consumption, increased maximum speed and more nimble handling at planing speeds.


WORLD-CLASS LOCATION

Your GT46 has its own berth at the state-of-the-art Clontarf Marina, in Sydney’s Middle Harbour.

The recently remodelled marina also features a stunning alfresco café / restaurant, boasting an enormous 370 sq m deck, so you can get your supplies and ice just prior to boarding your beautiful Beneteau Sports Cruiser.

From this incredible location you can explore the best views of Sydney from the water, entertain friends and soak up the atmosphere of the iconic events that the harbour is famous for – The Sydney to Hobart Race start, New Year’s Eve fireworks and the Australia Day celebrations, to name just a few.

Unlike other boat share arrangements, SMART Boating boat shares are an EQUITY purchase with a CAPITAL RETURN to you when the boat is sold at the end of the term.

The SMART Boating syndicate runs until August 2029, after which time the boat will be sold and all owners receive an equal share of the net sale price. If you want or need to exit the syndicate early there is no penalty and we can even help
facilitate the sale of your share.

To find out more: Call Martin on 0419 265 273 or Ryan on 0426 473 410

We’ll be more than happy to show you over the boat and if there is genuine interest, get you and your family out for a test cruise.


FAQs

Do you have any questions? Maybe these answers will help.

Yes. Your unit in the Trust is a tradable asset, which you are free to on-sell at any time to anyone for any price.

However, the new owner will have to satisfy certain conditions to protect the remaining owners and pay for their familiarisation session on the boat (cost of $250 incl GST + expenses).

Smart Boating will broker a unit for you for a 5% + GST share of the sale price achieved.

The syndicate agreement runs for five years, at which time the boat is sold and the net proceeds are then returned to each owner according to the equity they hold.

This has the benefit of giving you the best resale value and is before maintenance costs would start to increase on the boat. Many owners stay with us and move on to a new yacht or upgrade to a larger model.

No, basically everything is included.

The only additional costs to bear in mind are the cost for acquiring and installing additional equipment voted upon by the owners themselves, any insurance excess payments that may become due following a claim, stand-by use fees, any contingency fund top ups needed and, for motorboat owners, the cost of fuel used.

Every boat is comprehensively fitted out with all the necessary equipment and luxuries, including cooking utensils, bedding, hot/cold showers, stereo with CD player, iPod connection and cockpit speakers, barbecue, electric fridge and icebox, bimini and boom awning, wind, depth and speed instruments, electric flush toilet, electric anchor winch and safety gear.

In the unlikely event of damage, each owner has signed an agreement to pay for any damage they cause to the boat.

The boat will be fully insured, which should limit this liability to a maximum insurance excess of $2,000.

The boat and equipment are initially covered by a manufacturer’s warranty and there is an allowance in the monthly fee that goes into a sinking fund for unpredictable expenses.

  • We use carefully selected brands and boats that are ideal for multiple owner use and that we believe will achieve the best resale values in five years’ time.
  • We have an office open seven days a week where your boat is berthed and have a team available for any assistance required with berthing or the boat’s administration and operation.
  • We offer the full range of maintenance services from the marina, which prevents the unreliability of contractors who may not care for your boat as we would.
  • We can offer all syndicate owners additional training from qualified instructors.
  • We have an on-water breakdown service available to you throughout Pittwater/Broken Bay/The Hawkesbury River. (Note – charges may apply for this service.)
  • Your boat will always be cleaned and prepared for your use before you arrive with the tanks full, fridge cold, hatches opened and batteries charged – simply walk on and sail off.

This is a common question and really depends on the person at the helm. Luckily for you, a member of the Smart Boating team will be around to jump on board and give you a hand.

Maybe you’re concerned because you don’t know how to sail? To be honest, if you have enough skills to manage a motorboat it would take very little to gain the skills you need to manage a yacht. All our yachts have reliable and convenient in-mast furling.

Our ‘learn to sail a yacht’ courses are great value and perfect to get you up to standard. Or we can arrange one-on-one training to suit your specific needs.

And talking of sailing… have you considered how relaxing sailing is? But can you find peace, quiet and performance on a powerboat, too? Yes, of course you can!

Our Integrity 380 powerboat gets you where you need to go quietly and quickly, at up to 14 knots. This easy to handle motor cruiser boasts the space and comfort you’d expect from a 36+ footer!

No. To ensure the vessel is kept at a high standard and for the safety of the dog and comfort of the other owners, we don’t allow you to bring any animals on board.

Yes – and we even have dedicated Smart Boating buoys in designated areas.

Testimonials

Our boat owners are just like you and they are living their best life. Read what they have to say about their Smart Boating experiences.

“We were amazed at what Smart Boating delivered for our money compared to buying our own boat outright. Both David and Martin are friendly and relaxed, and one of them is always around to help or give advice if I want it. If there are any little problems with the boat, they are always sorted out straight away. “


Mike Weedon, Hanse 345

“We simply walk on – and walk off at the end of the day, and there’s no time wasted maintaining or worrying about the boat – we leave all that to Smart Boating. We were looking for ease of use and that’s what Smart Boating delivers. We get to enjoy all the good bits about owning a boat and we leave all the hard bits to Smart Boating.”


Mark Tyler, Integrity 380

“Our share in ‘Infinity’ has not only given us more time together as a family… it has given us so much pleasure and some very precious memories – at a fraction of the cost of owning our own boat outright.”


Richard Body, Lagoon 38

The boat is always perfect. The people at Smart Boating deliver what they say they are going to deliver – a walk-on walk-off service. And they deliver it every time. We arrive to a clean boat, full of fuel and water, with fresh linen on board. We don’t have to worry about anything. We just head off up Pittwater and relax.”


Megan and Adrian Barnes, Hanse 37

Hi Martin, team. Just a short note to say thank you for a seamless onboarding to Smartboating and Laguna. I have just returned from our maiden voyage/weekend booking, everything was in order and all had a great experience. Congrats on your product and service.
