The Beneteau Flyer 8.8 is the newest and largest in the Flyer series, following close on the heels of the introduction of the Flyer 7 models. The first we laid eyes on, the Sundeck version of the line, made good use of that extra size. The cabin is far more substantial than those seen on smaller models, yet the emphasis of the boat is still clearly on the great outdoors. Take a peek at this quick video, and you'll see exactly what we mean.


It almost seems unfair to compare this model to the rest of the Flyer line, since it is so much larger and more powerful. In fact, the only thing that's really consistent between the models is the layout choices they provide; from the Flyer 6 on up, all can be found in multiple configurations stressing watersports, cruising, or fishing.

This is also the strongest asset of the Flyer line. No matter why you love boating or how you spend your time on the water, one of these configurations is bound to fit the bill. Are you a cruiser, a fisher, or a watersports lover? Look at these Beneteau boats, and we'll bet the "right" Flyer is in there for you, somewhere.
