Beneteau's Flyer Range has been a steady seller over the years and its growing popularity is understandable after an exciting day with the latest models.

A RUNABOUT WITH family friendly features and a varied range of sizes that allow trailering or will take you down the coast safely means there is a Flyer for everyone, which is exactly French-builder Beneteau’s intention.

As I look over them at the Palma Royal Nautical Club, I conclude that these day boats are ideal for exploring my favourite Mallorcan coves and bays, but how each model does this varies. All the Flyer range (5.17m to 7.62m) has a Sundeck and Spacedeck model, plus a Sportdeck hull for the Flyer 6 and 7 ranges. The names are fairly self-explanatory, and the new 17-foot Flyer 5.5 and 25ft Flyer 7.7 continue this styling.
