Project: Beneteau Gran Turismo 41

Beneteau present the project for a new Gran Turismo 41, a renewal in the express sport cruiser line which includes six models from ten to fifteen meters. The goal of the 41 sport cruiser was to build on the legacy of the Gran Turismo 40, well-known for its seaworthiness and beautiful design, while taking the practical features GT line a step further.  The Gran Tursimo 41 stylishly follows in the tradition of her predecessor and focusses on the comfort of guests on board. With her sporty hull and slender unpretentious lines, the Gran Turismo 41 immediately conjures up speed and elegance. This elegance is highlighted by premium trims and know-how, such as metallic grey paint plates reminiscent of luxury cars. The Gran Turismo 41 is designed to win you over, but she is also designed for guests. The purpose of everything on board is to make life easier. A substantial leap forward has been made with regards to practicality and style, in relation to the GT40. This can be seen from the new aft sun bathing area placed at bench height for easier access and creating a real lounge space. The forward sun pad as also undergone specific developments and now offers optional easily reclining backs and a retractable canopy, as well as courtesy lights. Another hallmark of the Gran Turismo 41 is that she is good for entertaining, as can be seen from the large U-shaped cockpit where guests can comfortably converse. In addition, the outdoor galley location makes it easier for everyone to enjoy a good time together. A key feature of the Gran Turismo 41 is the hard top and it is clearly one of Beneteau’s landmark innovations now copied by many. It combines the largest opening possible to enjoy the sun and sea with protection for all onboard. In comparison with the GT 40, the Gran Turismo 41 has extra windows so that the interior is bathed in a greater amount of light. The very large sliding roof, which comes as standard, gives further access to the open air, while offering protection if the need should be felt. The lower deck is ideal for comfortable cruising . Apart from the galley and the head, there are two private cabins, each with beds parallel to the boat’s centreline, offering optimum quality of life on board. The full-beam design combined with opening portholes make these spaces particularly comfortable and pleasant. The interior atmosphere is both modern and relaxing, using grey walnut for its elegance and light. The Gran Turismo 41 benefits from Beneteau Air Step hull launched by the French boat building giant in 2007 with the Monte Carlo 37, to gain efficiency and stability even at sustained speeds. Power for the Gran Turismo 41 comes ftom standard twin Volvo 300hp and optional 380hp with stern-drive propulsion, offering respective peak speeds of 33 and 38 knots, and 23 and 27 cruising.
