Yacht Review: Beneteau Gran Turismo 40

January 31, 2019 11:32 am

GT40 Motoryacht By Beneteau

This stylish French cruiser delivers great value and impressive performance.


An innovative layout and sleek Italian styling set the GT 40 apart from the rest of the European sport cruiser crowd. The central helm position — rare in an express yacht this size — is raised two steps from the cockpit floor for enhanced visibility.

• An outdoor galley with grill and sink is built right into the transom — very clever.
• Electric swim platform makes launching and retrieving a tender easy.
• Unique cockpit layout with wraparound settee provides seating for a small crowd.
• Large hull windows provide natural lighting in both staterooms.
The GT 40’s head compartment includes a separate stall shower.
• Electrically operated sunroof and opening side windows provide great ventilation.
• Twin single berths in the guest cabin convert into a double berth.
• Lightweight (fully cored) hull is agile and fuel efficient.
• Proprietary Air Step 2 hull operates at planing speed on a cushion of air.

Price Range:

From the low $400s used; from about $700K new depending on options.

The GT 40’s cockpit design differs from most dayboat layouts.
