About the Vessel
The Gran Turismo 40 recreates the sport cruiser concept. Designed by the talented Nuvolari and Lenard, this novel variation offers as much pleasure to the eye as sensations and driving. The slender line of the Gran Turismo 40, underlined by a hardtop and well-designed side glazing, emphasize its pronounced “sporty character”.
The upper deck is an ideal place for spending the day, enjoying the great views all around, or for sunbathing. Facing the spacious saloon, a proper fully-fitted galley complements the deck galley. The Gran Tursimo stands out for its habitability with two rooms and a bathroom with separate showers.
The conversion of the cockpit seating into huge sun-loungers increases the relaxation space, adding to the already generous 4m² sunbathing area with removable backrests up on the fore deck. Lowering to just below the water's surface, the motorized swim platform stabilises the boat at anchor, holds the dinghy when underway and offers easy access to the water for leisure activities.
All this and many more great facilities are available on-board, guaranteeing a top luxurious cruise experience and maximum comfort, fun and entertainment.

Dolphins in Mauritius
Dolphins are one of the most fantastic creatures that live in the ocean. The dolphins, while cheerful and playful are also a symbol of intelligence and grace. Dolphins live in pods of about 20 individuals or more and can be observed in the early morning, swimming along the west coast of Mauritius- from Tamarin to the deep sea, off the south coast of Le Morne Peninsula. The Dolphins, the Bottlenose Dolphin and the Spinner Dolphin, have made the southern-west Coast of Mauritius a place for them to rest and sleep before going to the deep sea for their fishing.
The Bottlenose Dolphin is one of the most common and well-known dolphins. Bottlenose Dolphins are Grey in colour, can be between 2 and 4 meters (6.6 and 13 ft) long, and weigh between 150 and 650 kilograms (330 and 1,400 lb). Bottlenose Dolphins live in groups called pods that typically are of 15 dolphins, but it is also possible to find groups of over 100 or even occasionally over 1000 dolphins. Their diet consists mainly of small fish.
The Spinner Dolphin is dark grey, with darker patches in the tail stock, back and throat. Usually it has creamy-white patch on the belly though this varies considerably. The beak is distinctively long and thin, with a dark tip. The fins too are lengthy for dolphins of this size. Adults have varied in size from 129 cm to 235 cm and weight from 23 kg to 78 kg.
The gestation period is 10 months. Individuals reach maturity at 4-7 years (females) and 7-10 years (males). Longevity is unknown. Spinners congregate in groups that vary from just a few dolphins to great schools numbering in the thousands.
