Owner's Comments of the Grand Soleil 43

'Azzurra' is in immaculate condition and has been constantly upgraded in the 5 years I have owned her. She has been wintered ashore each year where the engine has been serviced and winterized, fresh antifouling applied, topsides and decks polished, and all stainless and teak cleaned and treated.
'Azzurra' also benefits from a Cossutti Yacht Design bulb lead keel and carbon fibre rudder, lowering the centre of gravity and giving her superior stiffness and performance.
