Grand Soleil 43

Hamble, GB


2015 Grand Soleil 43

A beautiful combination of comfort and performance, the Grand Soleil 43 encompasses everything the Cantiere del Pardo yard are known for. The sleek hull created with renowned America’s cup designer Claudio Maletto, gives a low wetted area, great stability in the T-shaped bulb keel and a well laid out, voluminous interior.

Launched Easter 2015 at Hamble ‘Panther’ is a beautiful example of the popular Maletto design she was regularly raced and cruised with various adjustments and upgrades being made during the next two years. In October 2017 the boat was shipped to the Caribbean for a season of racing and cruising. She was shipped back to Palma, Mallorca in May 2018 and spent 18 months cruising around the Balearics.  After completing the 2019 ARC+, ‘Panther’ completed another Caribbean season cruising and racing and was then shipped back to Hamble where she has been lightly used since.

She benefits from an extensive, high quality sail wardrobe, with inshore and offshore racing mainsails, full weather range of jibs as well as symmetric and asymmetric spinnakers and a G2 cruising gennaker.

With eight berths in three comfortable double cabins, two heads and a well-equipped galley and forward facing sit down chart table, the GS43 is ideally suited for long passages and life aboard.
