The Grand Soleil 40 is a true performance cruiser with outstanding manoeuvrability and liveability. She delivers speed combined with gererous and cleverly designed living space and is elegantly furnished below.
The hull and deck are built in a sandwich of closed cell foam and vinylester resin in the first layers. Further reinforcements are positioned in high stress areas. An internal grid of galvanised steel is glued with acrylic glue and bonded to the hull. This grid absorbs the load of the keel mast and shrouds.
The GS40 is available with three cabins and an aft heads as standard but there is also a three cabin and two heads option or a two cabin, two heads layout. She is fitted with a Volvo Penta 27 CV engine with S-drive.
