Beneteau Gran Turismo 40 Overview

The Beneteau Gran Turismo 40 recreates the sports cruiser concept, designed by the talented hands of Nuvolari and Lenard. She combines a class leading cockpit and interior with gracious power and speed. Her manageable size, remarkable Air Step® 2 hull and stern drive propulsion give her incredible stability resulting in exceptional economy, acceleration and sea keeping qualities while manoeuvrability and docking have never been easier thanks to the Volvo joystick system. The layout of the interior gives you a feeling of space unrivalled on a boat this size. Opposite the spacious saloon is a proper fully-fitted galley while the two double cabins sit forward and aft of the saloon.

Key Features

Beneteau Gran Turismo 40 cockpit
Create a bright and airy cockpit with the retractable sunroof and side glazing.
Beneteau Gran Turismo 40 bathing platform
The generous 1.30m swim platform lowers to just below the water's surface to, not only provide easy access to the water, but stabilize the boat at anchor too.
Beneteau Gran Turismo 40 master cabin
Positioned forward, the master berth features a large double bed and panoramic windows. A second cabin can be laid out as a double or twin.
Air Step 2
TECHNOLOGYDerived from aeronautical industry technology, the Air Step® forms small steps under the hull that help evacuate the water stream and reduce the amount of friction. Combined with captured air forming a cushion, as well as runners to the rear of the hull increasing stability, these chevronned steps considerably increase speed, while reducing energy consumption.The second generation of Air Step® is marked by a considerable increase in the volume of air inflow beneath the hull. It took more than 18 months of research and 350 hours of testing to obtain a new combination increasing airflow and changing the shape and arrangement of the steps.Air Step®2 technology is now compatible with IPS engines, thanks to the research carried out by Beneteau in close collaboration with the staff at Volvo. This technological progress opens wonderful development perspectives for large new inboard motorboats offering stability, safety, and performance second to none.

Nick Hatfield

Beneteau Power Brand Manager

Nick has been an integral part of the Group since he joined to work weekends while at Chichester University! Nick took a full time position in 2007 at the Port Hamble office shortly after graduating and was delighted to move to our Lymington office in 2008 where from 2009 he assumed the role of Office Manager for this extremely successful branch of the network.

Excelling as a Brokerage Manager, Nick was then appointed as the Prestige Brand Manager for Ancasta and in late 2014 when Ancasta were awarded the Beneteau Power dealership Nick was the obvious choice to head up the Beneteau Power brand at Ancasta and grow sales through the office network.

In 2016 Nick was invited to join the senior management team at Ancasta and has since been an influential member of the board helping implement new strategies to grow the business further.

Out of work (yes we do let him have time off once in a while!) Nick is a very outdoor person who loves yacht racing, snowboarding, mountain biking, enjoying time with his young family and has even been known to run the odd half marathon or two!
