The Gran Turismo 46 is a com­pact mo­tor yacht that has fea­tures and in­te­rior space far more than its rel­a­tively mod­est size would sug­gest.

With an over­all length of just over 15m and beam mea­sure­ments a hair un­der 4.3m, the Gran Turismo 46 has the liv­abil­ity of a larger yacht with the han­dling of a sport cruiser.

Em­ploy­ing the sec­ond it­er­a­tion of Beneteau’s Air Step hull de­sign, the Gran Turismo 46 is ca­pa­ble of speeds just un­der 35 knots.

This is a wel­come sur­prise since the boat boasts an aft-lo­cated full-beam mas­ter state­room, in­te­rior and ex­te­rior cock­pits that trans­form into sun lounges, and a hy­drauli­cally re­tractable swim plat­form.
