    Grand Soleil - 43 OT for sale

    Sailing BoatsRacing BoatsGrand Soleil43 OT

    The Grand Soleil 43 is a modern design from the drawing board of Botin & Carkeek. It is an icon, showing Italian style combining excellent performance with unmistakable elegance. The GS 43 OT (Open Transom) provides the perfect combination of performance and exceptional cruising comfort.


    This design is destined to be a key player in important regattas, which has been proven by the former and current owner.

    After two seasons of racing named 'Antilope', this GS 43 continued winning races under the name of 'IL CORVO'. Fully crewed she participated in many regattas, mainly in Belgium and the Netherlands. Double handed and short crewed she competed in many RORC events such as Fastnet Race, Middle Sea Race and North Sea Race. Always at a competitive level.

    Next to racing this yacht is fully fitted out for enjoyable holidays and comfortable cruising. With her slightly smaller North 3Dl Cruising sails and using a Harken Jib furler and Antal batten cars, she makes for an easy to sail, fully fitted out cruiser.

    Below the waterline the purpose designed IRC fin keel and carbon rudder, combined with sprayed on antifouling make for a super smooth and fast bottom. Antifouling was renewed yearly and only two years ago she was stripped down to the gel coat.

    She was only sailed in European summers. Each winter boat and mast were comfortably stored in a shed. The interior was climatised throughout the year by heater and dehumidifier. Sails were always stored in a humidity controlled store, rolled without battens.

    A record of all maintenance and purchases invoices is available and comes with the boat.

    The boat has proven its potential both In- and Offshore. She is fully equipped and ready for a competitive 2020 campaign or for smooth cruising.
