The Gran Turismo 46 is the latest generation of sport cruiser and benefits from Air Step® technology. This is a stylish and harmoniously designed boat with a bold sporty look. She boasts a clever layout and offers lots of opportunity for personalization.

With her elegant sporty line, the Gran Tursimo 46 combines a completely open hardtop, electrically operated side glazing and a wide glass door that protects the cockpit. A perfect combination between protection and clear space, she offers two possible deck plans: after galley or galley in the cockpit. For the first time, the latest generation of planing hull offers a choice between a Volvo IPS 600 or a Z Drive engine, allowing up to 2 x 400 HP.  Both safe and perfectly manoeuvrable, this model promises immense pleasure at the wheel.

Interior Design

With an owner’s suite with a view of the sea on either side stretching across the whole beam of the boat and a guest cabin with a bathroom and separate shower, the Gran Tursimo 46 offers outstanding quality accommodation for this size of motor cruiser. Bathed in natural light and perfectly ventilated, the living spaces radiate well-being emphasised by the elegance of the materials. The matt walnut woodwork encrusted with metallised titanium details, leather, lacquered furnishings and high-quality padding create a luxury atmosphere. The Gran Tursimo 46 comes in a two or three cabin version.


Both protective and open, the ultra-spacious cockpit has electrically operated side glazing and you can opt for a glass door that can also opens completely.

Sun bathing and relaxation

The Gran Turismo 46 has a highly customisable relaxation space with a choice of a convertible bench or a modular sun-bed. The reclining bench is electrically controlled offering two sun-loungers, while the sun bed unfolds by simply tilting back the seat back towards the sea or the cockpit.

Power, Elegance and Style

Cleverly marrying power and refinement, the Gran Turismo 46 is as delightful for the driver as it is for the passengers. She promises wonderful sensations underway and constant pleasure at anchor.  

Air Step® 2

Air Step® 2 marks considerable development in this technology and it is now compatible with IPS engines. By increasing the volume of air inflow under the hull threefold, the boat benefits from higher performance, safety and seakeeping. While reducing fuel consumption, she accelerates faster and gains speed. This latest generation of the patent has already proved its worth offering excellent sea-keeping, simpler passage through the waves, linear acceleration and easily handling of curves. The ‘air cushion’ effect aft of the hull procures amazing comfort.

Swim platform

Designed for loads of 350 kg, the large swim platform is submersible and can easily take the weight of a Jet Ski or dinghy. There is a storage locker in which all your swimming and water sport accessories can be kept close at hand. 

Galley and lounge

Bathed in natural light, the galley in the Gran Turismo 46 is designed in an L shape. It is very well equipped with a double Kenyon ceramic hob, a fridge-freezer and lots of storage places. For even greater comfort, it can be fitted with a microwave and dishwasher. In the two-cabin version, the galley faces a convivial lounge, ideal for chatting while cooking meals.
