DEVELOPMENT OF THE HULL : Bénéteau POWERBOATS
DESIGNERS : Style & Design
The flyer 8.8 SUNdeck is a distillation of technology combining exceptional performance at sea and an uncommon level of comfort.Built on second generation Air Step® hull, she will take up to 500 HP engine power and can carry up to 11 people.Driving is a real pleasure on this type of craft, since the Flyer 8.8 sundeck combines sensations, relaxation and safety to perfection.
Both elegant and sporty, the profiled lateral struts of the Flyer 8.8 SUNdeck stand out and she has an easily recognisable windshield design. With a deck plan giving preference to relaxation spaces, she has a forward sundeck with two or three mattresses, depending on what you want. Elegant and extremely spacious, the interior of the Flyer 88 SUNdeck is decorated in warm shades of coffee and Bordeaux. Very narrow at the bow, her special V-shaped hull deflects water perfectly.
The style and line of the Flyer 8.8 SUNdeck are appealing, as is the layout which is remarkably comfortable for this size of boat. She remains a dayboat, but with colossal progress made in the interior, the high quality finishes and equipment mean that you can enjoy a wider range of programmes, even small cruises.
With her side glazing, ‘Skyview’ deck hatch and ventilating portholes, the forward cabin offers two very comfortable berths. During the day this becomes a huge saloon seating eight people around the table. The incredibly generously spaced interior is equipped with a refrigerator, a microwave, a separate shower room with toilet and shower, and also has a stern mid cabin!
SUN BATHING AREAS
The layout of the large forward sun loungers affords easy access to storage and anchoring. The rear seat converts into a sun lounger.
AIR STEP® 2 HULL
By increasing the air inflow beneath the hull, the Air Step® 2 represents a considerable development of this technology that increases performance, safety and cruising comfort. While reducing fuel consumption, she accelerates faster and speed is augmented. This latest generation of a patent that has already proved its worth also offers excellent sea-keeping, simpler passage through the waves, linear acceleration and easily handled curves. The ‘air cushion’ effect aft of the hull procures amazing comfort.
