Grand Soleil 43

Charter our immaculate, fully race prepared Grand Soleil 43 for all the top Med regattas. She has a carbon boom, carbon spinnaker pole, a suit of carbon and kevlar racing sails, S1 and S4 symmetrical spinnakers and a furling code zero.

She also benefits from a redesigned racing keel featuring a fully faired stainless steel fin and cast iron bulb, and a redesigned carbon rudder. Both giving the boat extra performance for no rating penalty.

The Grand Soleil 43 has been designed to impress in the harbour and win on the race course. Great attention has been paid to the ergonomics onboard, as well as the use of the best deck equipment, thus generating extraordinary ease of steering and handling in any wind or sea state.

Created by one of the most successful America’s Cup designers of recent times, Marcelino Botin, the Grand Soleil 43 can proudly boast some of the finest performances ever recorded in all the major worldwide regattas to this day. Our own Grand Soleil 43 is the 2014 Grand Soleil Cup Champion.

The galvanized steel grid, which is attached to the hull with a metal/acrylic chemical bond, and further reinforced with a multiaxial cloth, provides stiffness and strength unheard of in laminated hull structures. The one piece grid structure is designed to uniformly distribute keel, mast and chain plate loads. This has the added advantage of lowering the C of G of the yacht and also improving the stiffness of the hull, thus providing superior sailing characteristics.

We now offer you the chance to excel on this beautiful Italian race boat in the major regattas of the Mediterranean. She is available for the Giraglia Rolex Cup, the Copa del Ray, Les Voiles de St Tropez and the Middle Sea Race.
