Custom built Grand Soleil 46.3 with many modifications for World cruising
This Grand Soleil 46.3 is the perfect modern performance cruiser, fully equipped for ocean cruising. She was a one-off designed to be sailed long distances, and built to suit this criteria. Kevlar has been added to the hull, the rigging is oversized and it is fully equipped for blue water cruising.
Featuring a custom layout of 3 double cabins (one with pullman berth), 2 heads, large saloon, workroom in the bow, and a comprehensively fitted galley.
This custom built Grand Soleil 46.3 benefits from a high specification including a watermaker, generator, solar panels, SSB Radio, AIS, EPIRB, and a wind generator to name just a few items. The customisation and build process of this yacht was a joint effort between Grand Soleil and Chantier Naval Jezequel.
"The boat was built to go around the world, the thicknesses of the hull are not like those of the common boats, they have also been reinforced with 2 layers of KEVLAR. MAXSPAR shaft and rigging are oversized.
Just completed around the world, 40,000 miles travelled without problems, ready to continue."
