At a physical boat show, it’s easy to get lost…you struggle to find what you’re looking for. Not so in our digital boat show, Milano Yachting Week. Every day we give you new ideas to visit…like today’s.

We went on the hunt for motorboats between 11 meters, an ideal size to have a comfortable, versatile boat that allows you to go out daily but also cruises. And to top it off that can also become a “house on the sea”. Here’s what we found for you today, browsing online among the docks of the powerboat port.


1. Gran Turismo 36 by Beneteau (11.56 meters)


The sporty to live the boat all year round

Push a button and the roof opens to shelter the helm station and cockpit. You’re in the soup of an express cruiser, a boat that allows you to “rough it” by choosing the version with or without outboard. But when you’re in the roadstead after swimming you sit around a table for 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 beautiful dinette. In short, the Gran Turismo 36 of Beneteau is the ideal boat for those who want to live the boat always, all year round.

2. Pardo 38 by Pardo Yachts (11,90 meters)


Big class with lots of space

When class is not water, then think of a Pardo Yachts. The Pardo 38, symbol of the open boat (but below deck there is one or two cabins with bathroom) 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 life, but sheltered by a carbon fiber T Top (an elegant roof) that covers from the helm station to the dining area (with a table around six comfortable seats), with the possibility to extend the cover towards the stern with a bimini. Excellent performance with a choice of inboard or outboard and a very elegant line.

3. Swift Trawler 35 by Beneteau (11.29 meters)

The super-comfortable beach house that sails like no other

When you think of a home on the sea that makes you feel safe and secure, think of a Swift Trawler from Beneteau. The French shipyard has made the trawler concept, born in the United States for cold seas as a work boat, suitable for the Mediterranean Sea. A safe hull that faces even rough seas in safety, a navigation not bound to speed but to comfort. And then space, lots of space, like in a real house. The Swift Trawler 35 by Beneteau in only 11 meters exalts all these concepts. To be visited immediately.
