Bénéteau Gran Turismo 40: the curated and organized sport-cruiser

The Bénéteau Gran Turismo 40 renews the sport-cruiser concept. Born from the pencil of the talented duo Nuvolari and Lenard, this original declination offers as much pleasure to the eye as it does in navigation. A harmonious boat with perfect interior organization and extremely well-kept fittings.

The sleek lines of the Gran Turismo 40, accentuated by the hard-top with machined side windows, confirm its distinctly sporty character. With a center steering console and hull equipped with the latest Air Step®technology, sensations and safety are assured for travels up to 38 knots. Particularly spacious and originally organized, the cockpit can accommodate up to 11 people. With its two layout options, the outdoor galley (towards the stern or in the cockpit) adapts to different ways of living on board. By increasing air volumes under the hull, the latest generation Air Step® marks a significant evolution of this technology and enables the Gran Turismo 40 to achieve 1.5 knots more top speed. Although fuel consumption is reduced, acceleration is faster and speed improved. This latest generation of an oft-tested patent offers exceptional sea-keeping, facilitated wave passage, linear acceleration and smooth turns. The air cushion effect toward the stern of the hull provides considerable comfort.

Ingeniously combining passenger protection and the “open” spirit, the Gran Turismo 40 features a fully opening sunroof. Electric side windows allow the extremely spacious cockpit, which can easily accommodate eleven people, to be completely cleared. The ability to convert the cockpit seating into a large sundeck increases the space dedicated to relaxing on the boat and complements the large 4m² sundeck with liftable backrests towards the bow of the boat. Magical access to all nautical pleasures, the wide 1.30m-wide bathing platform lowers below the water level to allow the boat to stabilize at berth and accommodate the tender while underway.

Both in its overall conception and in its many details, the Gran Turismo 40 strikes the perfect balance between a decidedly sporty character and a studied functionality that make life on board
Comfortable and refined at the same time. Theorganization of spaces in the lower deck provides a feeling of spaciousness unparalleled on a boat of this size. In front of the large square we find a real equipped kitchen, in addition to the kitchen on deck. With its two cabins, a bathroom with separate shower, the Gran Turismo 40 stands out for its roominess. Matt walnut woods, lacquered furniture and iridescent cream-colored upholstery sign an elegant personality.
