The Beneteau Gran Turismo 40 has a raised, on-centerline helm with an adjacent companion seat. There’s another companion seat to starboard. Abaft the helm is a seat that faces the cockpit with L-shaped seating to starboard, a folding table that converts to a sun pad, and a portside bench. 

Belowdecks are a master stateroom forward and a guest stateroom amidships. Standard power is twin 300 hp Volvo Penta D4s for a reported 33-knot top hop; with the optional twin 370 hp Volvo Penta D6s, it’s 38.5 knots. At press time, eight GT 40s were on the market, ranging from $393,246 to $489,000.  

From the Archive

Beneteau’s Air Step hull form “pulls air in through a pair of notches in the chines forward of amidships, then channels the air to a pair of steps in the hull. The introduction of air bubbles reduces drag and provides a cushioning effect in the aft section of the hull. Reduced drag contributes not only to reduced fuel consumption but also to quicker acceleration and a higher top speed.”
