12 meter boats compared: the brand new walkaround by Fjord or the Beneteau Gran Turismo? According to many experts, 40 feet (about 12 meters long) is the perfect size for a boat that is perfect for daily trips with family and friends, but also the minimum size for a cruise with all the comforts and safety necessary to undertake even long navigations. Finally, it is from this size that boats are more slender and less “stocky”.

12 meter boats compared

At the Milano Yachting Week – The digital boat show, we found two 40-footers virtually moored at the dock, which are among the best examples of sporty “open” boats that also have a conception based on comfort and space exploited to the maximum. In addition to having high-performance hulls that can also safely withstand any wave condition.

Here are the two “queens” of the 40 feet that we have chosen for you in the port of the motor boats of Milan Yachting Week – The digital boat show where you can find dozens of boats from 2 to 30 meters on the dock.

12 meters boats: comparing concepts

There you go, we reveal them to you. They are the brand-new Fjord 41 XL (click here) and the classic Beneteau Gran Turismo 40 (click here).

What these two boats have in common, the Fjord 41 XL and the Beneteau GT 40, which have the same length, is that they were born with the aim of living on board as comfortable as in a house on the sea but have an attractive line combined with excellent performance. We compare them and invite you to visit them now with a simple click here.

Fjord 41 XL

Space, space and more space. The Fjord 41 XL (m. 12,70 x 3,99) is surely today the boat with more available and useful spaces in the 40 feet category. One example above all, it has the world’s largest T-top (open canopy that covers the cockpit and steering position), which can shade an area up to 3.90 m wide and 5.81 m long with an integrated bimini. And then it is the boat, always in its category with more customization possibilities: even 90 possible combinations of deck solutions and 5 different interior design styles for this Fjord 41 XL.

All you have to do is visit the Fjord 41 XL on the dock at Milano Yachting Week to discover its features, read about the new concepts that inspired it, look at the first photos while sailing, those of the interiors and of the deck in its infinite combinations.

Beneteau Gran Turismo 40

If you want to see how the classic sport cruiser is renewed, go now to visit the Beneteau Gran Turismo 40 (m. 12.67 x 3.87) where there is the hand in the design of two archistars of the nautical, Nuvolari and Lenard, who have designed a boat beautiful to the eye and equally rational. Underwater you will find an innovative hull, equipped with the latest generation Air Step technology. Increasing the volumes of air under the hull, the latest generation Air Step marks a significant evolution of this technology and allows the Gran Turismo 40 to achieve 1.5 knots more top speed.


Although consumption is reduced. Inviting you to visit the Beneteau Gran Turismo 40 now, we provide you with another gem of this boat: the electric side windows allow you to completely free the cockpit which can accommodate eleven people. The possibility of transforming the cockpit seats into a large sundeck, increases the space dedicated to relaxation on the boat and completes the large sundeck of 4m ² with liftable backrests towards the bow of the boat. You just have to visit Beneteau Gran Turismo 40 and ask questions and further info, just click on the email or Whatsapp request. Just click here to learn more.
