Introduction

The Grand Soleil 43 Open Transom (OT) was developed from the supremely successful GS43 and was launched in 2008. The GS43 OT has already proved herself on the race track with a class win at the Spi Ouest regatta in 2009.

The hull and deck are built in a sandwich of closed cell foam and vinylester resin in the first layers. Further reinforcements are positioned in high stress areas. An internal grid of galvanised steel is glued with acrylic glue and bonded to the hull. This grid absorbs the load of the keel mast and shrouds.

In addition to her open transom and large stern locker, the GS43 OT features double steering wheels (with the mainsheet track deck mounted to improve control), retractable helmsman’s foot chocks and a genoa furling unit which is neatly tucked away under the deck.

The GS43 OT benefits form three cabins as standard and a Volvo 40hp engine.
