In a physical boat show it is easy to get lost…you struggle to find what you are looking for. Not so at our digital salon, Milan Yachting Week . Every day we give you new insights into visiting…like today’s.

We went on the hunt for powerboats between 11 meters, an ideal size to have a comfortable, versatile boat that allows you day trips but also cruises. And finally that it can also become a “house by the sea.” Here’s what we found for you today, browsing online among the docks of the powerboat harbor.


  1. Beneteau’s Gran Turismo 36 (11.56 meters)


The sportswoman to experience the boat all year round

Push a button and the roof opens, sheltering the driver’s station and cockpit. You’re in the soup of an express cruiser, a boat that allows you to “chug” by choosing the version with or without an outboard. But when you are in the roadstead after the bath you sit around a table of eight and in front of you is the fully equipped kitchen. Then you want to take a “nap”? Go down to the sleeping area with two double cabins, a large bathroom, another kitchen with a nice dinette. In short, Beneteau’s Gran Turismo 36 is the ideal boat for those who want to experience boating all the time, all year round.

  1. Pardo 38 by Pardo Yachts (11.90 meters)


Classy with plenty of space

When class is not water, then think of a Pardo Yachts. The Pardo 38, the epitome of the open boat (but below deck there is one or two cabins with bathrooms) walkaround, that is, the boat where on deck you walk on a single plane, from bow to stern. Plenty of space on the Pardo 38 for outdoor living, but sheltered by a carbon-fiber T Top (a sleek roof) that covers from the wheelhouse area to the dining area (with a table around from six comfortable seats), with the option of extending the cover aft with a bimini. Outstanding performance with choice of inboard or outboard and sleek styling.

  1. Beneteau’s Swift Trawler 35 (11.29 meters)

The super-comfortable seaside home that sails like few

If you think of a waterfront home that makes you feel safe and secure, think of a Beneteau Swift Trawler. The French shipyard has made the trawler concept, which originated in the United States for cold seas as a work boat, suitable for the Mediterranean Sea. A safe hull that faces even rough seas with confidence, sailing not bound by speed but by comfort. And then space, lots of space, as in a real home. Beneteau’s Swift Trawler 35 in just 11 meters brings out all these concepts and enhances them. To be visited immediately.
