The Grand Soleil 40, built by Cantiere del Pardo, is a 40-foot performance cruiser that strikes a balance between elegant accommodations and grin-inducing performance. Making this 40 footer an ideal family performance cruiser.  
On deck

The deck and cockpit are set up for ease of use making the layout good for family cruising. The ergonomics of the entire cockpit are nearly perfect. The seats are wide and comfortable with well-angled coamings, and the teak cockpit sole is attractive and provides secure traction. Low coamings and long teak handrails make it easy to go forward, and the helm station is excellent. There's an especially nice spot to windward when the breeze is up; the wheel pedestal is angled to make a splendid foot brace. Even short skippers will have good sight lines over the low cabintop. This deck has teak veneer vacuum bagged in place, no screws affecting the core. She has the feel of an elegant custom yacht.


The lovely joinery work is stained mahogany, with a fine grain and an attractive light honey color not your typical cookie cutter production boat. The overhead is white, and the space looks bright. This is the three-cabin version, with a single head on the port side of the companionway, and an optional second head in the forward cabin.
The forward bunk is a spacious area with plenty of width forward and aft. This is a proper stateroom.

The saloon has a U-shaped settee around the table plus a clever sliding seat for two on the centerline that can be pulled out when needed. The saloon's defining feature is the galley, which extends the length of the space across from the dinette. This offers a lot of counter space and a nice working area. 

The efficient nav station has a comfortable seat and ample space for electronics as well as a convenient shelf outboard for your manual plotting instruments. Throughout the saloon, handy grab points ease safe movement under way. The head doubles as a wet locker for hanging the dripping foulies.

Cantiere del Pardo leaves the hull in its mold for ten days while installing the reinforcing grid, finishing the interior, and attaching the deck. This ensures a true shape by eliminating the flexing that inevitably occurs when a bare shell is lifted out of the mold. The solid hull is built of 12 layers of unidirectional cloth, vinylester resin, and an isophthalic gelcoat, supported by a structural grid with six longitudinal stringers, five transverse ribs, and bulkheads. Stainless-steel reinforcement is built into the main bulkhead to spread chainplate loads. The hull-to-deck joint is bonded with structural epoxy, while deck fittings are backed by integral stainless plates molded into the deck, drilled and tapped to accept the bolts. The bulb/fin keel is bolted to the structural cross-grid, with the nuts accessible through the cabin sole.
It's easy to reach the forward two-thirds of the engine in its compartment under the companionway, and removable panels give access to the sides and aft end. The installation has solid mounts and neatly dressed wiring and plumbing
