Grand Soleil 43 - Cruising World

First of all, the boat looks great. More importantly, the boat sails like a dream, thanks to its powerful full-batten main, 107 percent genoa and Solimar steering. It was a sentiment shared by fellow judge Alvah Simon, who noted that it was “so easy to move around the boat,” an important feature for anyone considering passagemaking or even daysailing with a shorthanded crew. “I really liked this boat,” Cruising World’s Boat of the Year judge Ed Sherman declared after we took the 43 for a spin on Chesapeake Bay last fall, following the U. S. Sailboat Show in Annapolis. Source:
