Replacing the Gran Turismo 38, the new Gran Turismo 40 introduces a silhouette conceived by designers Nuvolari-Lenard and a redesigned cockpit with a center helm and optional lowering swim platform. Propelled by dual Volvo Penta 300 horsepower diesel engines and incorporating the new Air Step 2 hull design, the Gran Turismo 40 provides a combination of increased fuel efficiency and maneuverability, while offering an appealing sense of style in its new shape.
Air Step 2 Hull Design Technology. Air Step 2 technology is the incorporation of a hydrodynamic forward and aft hull design that allows the Gran Turismo 40 to operate at planing speeds on a "cushion" of air. Air is sucked under the boat from forward vents on the chines and exits at the transom. By reducing water adhesion to the hull and reducing friction, the boat becomes easier to push. The result is reduced fuel consumption, increased maximum speed, and more nimble handling at planing speeds.

Retractable Sunroof. The electrically operated sunroof allows air to flow freely though the cockpit of the Gran Turismo 40 while both at anchor and underway.
Optional Electric Swim Platform. Whether utilizing the platform for a small tender, or simply for its namesake's use, departing the Gran Turismo 40 at anchor either way is ergonomic and functional. The platform has electric lowering capability, allowing the boat's operator ease and flexibility in tender launch and retrieval, as well as convenient access for swimmers into and out of the water. This is an expensive but important piece of optional equipment. It solves the problem of where to store the tender as well as to provide a place that everyone aboard will enjoy when it is partially submerged. As an option, the platform is offered in teak.
The cockpit table also lowers to provide a sun bathing lounge seat and the removable side glazing frees up the cockpit completely. In addition to the sunroof, this creates an open air experience while still maintaining the integrity of the GRP hardtop, combining the protection of passengers and the sensation of an open craft.
Forward of the settee is the helm station, with a twin helm bench seat and an additional passenger bucket seat to its right. The helm of the Gran Turismo 40 is positioned on the centerline, providing a full field of view to both the left and right.

The wheel is two tone leather and chrome, and positioned just below the instrumentation. Compass, speed, log, depth sounder and a Simrad NSS 12" multifunction screen GPS chartplotter, 4G radar, and autopilot are symmetrically incorporated into the console. Throttles and joystick are appropriately positioned to the right and in close proximity to the wheel.

The Volvo Penta sterndrive system is a standard feature, with a joystick docking system, providing unencumbered ease during maneuvering and docking evolutions in conjunction with the optional bow thruster.
A view of the Gran Turismo 40 helm station.
The helm station of the Gran Turismo 40 appears to be a very inviting place from which to operate a boat. With its centerline location, exceptional visibility and "all components within reach" design, the experience for the operator could easily equate to that of operating a sporty center console.Looking out onto the foredeck, there are twin sun pads for enjoying some fun in the sun at anchor, which is lowered and hoisted by an electric Lewmar motorized winch controlled remotely from the helm.
