Designed by famed Italian design duo Nuvolari Lenard, the Gran Turismo 40 is a sleek sport cruiser whose performance matches her good looks. French builder Beneteau’s Gran Turismo 40 has a central driving console providing an excellent view of the water ahead while driving, with seating for three people. The spacious cockpit sits 11 people comfortably, perfect for enjoying time with the entire family on the water.
This boat also takes advantage of the next generation Air Step® 2 hull technology, which creates air beneath the hull to give the Gran Turismo 40 greater performance with 1.5 more knots above maximum speed. This hull technology also improves fuel consumption, saving on how often fuel needs to be filled. Best of all, the hull creates an ‘air cushion’ effect for a comfortable, soft and safe ride.
The interior offers excellent space, with an owner’s cabin forward that has a central bed and two large windows so it’s easy to get around the bed and feels light and roomy. A second cabin is found aft, which can be had with two single beds – ideal for the kids – or one double bed, making it a suitable guest cabin when cruising with friends. The bathroom has a separate shower. There is an option for air-conditioning, so you stay comfortable on board no matter the climate.
