Grand Soleil 43'
After the great success of the GS 39’, Cantiere del Pardo has relied once again on the talent of the America’s Cup Designer Claudio Maletto, to create a boat which would guarantee excellent performance both cruising and racing. The answer is the new Grand Soleil 43’
The result of Maletto’s work is a hull with a low wetted surface, powerful aft sections, a balanced sail plan and a very efficient “T shape” keel. This enables the boat to support a powerful sail plan without sacrificing cruising comfort and to combine safety with high stability.
The construction methods applied have taken full advantage of the latest technological innovations. Hull and deck are of sandwich construction, the internal grid pan is made with carbon fiber layers so as to keep the boat lightweight whilst guaranteeing maximum stiffness and resistance to torsional loads.
Below deck, the attention to detail is maximised. Numerous natural light points and solid wood elements in alternation with white linear surfaces, contribute to ensure that the style of this yacht is modern, bright and inviting.
The interior layout of the new Grand Soleil 43’ bonds design with functionality. It is organised into 3 cabins and 2 heads, a large and ergonomic L-shape galley, a dining area which can accommodate up to 6 people comfortably and a practical forward facing chart table, which can satisfy even the most demanding navigators.The deck layout of the Grand Soleil 43’ has been designed to ensure maximum comfort. The flush hatches and the running decks free from lines allow easier movement on board. All the control lines are led back to the cockpit for the best possible sail control and ease of handling, especially beneficial when sailing with reduced crew
