First look- Grand Soleil 40

The new Grand Soleil 40 has all the credentials to replicate the great success of the GS 44, winner of the last ORC World Championship, while maintaining the feeling of style, elegance and safety seen throughout the range.

A fast and responsive boat that reflects its sporting personality in the performance on the water.

Grand Soleil 40 will be presented in an exclusive World Premiere during Cannes Yachting Festival 2022.

Available in both Performance and Race versions, the design once again bears the signature of Matteo Polli.

The lines of the hull and the naval architecture of the GS 40 maintain the strong vocation for performance, without sacrificing volume to the advantage of space and comfort on board. A boat easy to use, luxurious and at the same time competitive and a thrill to sail.

In collaboration with the Nauta Design studio the layout maximizes the volume with fine finishes and timeless design.

Below deck the spaces have been optimized to ensure maximum comfort onboard for the owner and their guests.

As well as the Race and Performance design options, the GS 40 has a 3 cabin, 1 heads layout and an optional 3 cabin, 2 heads configuration.

“The design brief for the new Grand Soleil 40 was very similar to that of the GS 44, but with the request to further raise the bar, given the smaller size. The overall length of 40 feet, one of the most common on the market, presents a great challenge in finding a compromise between internal volumes and sporting characteristics. Thanks to the experience gained on the 44 and a well-established team of designers, it was possible to find the perfect combination of performance and comfort.”
