Broker Remarks

A fine example of the Grand Soleil 43.  TRUE COLOURS is in her second ownership since launch and both owners have kept her in exceptional condition throughout.  A luxury family cruising yacht with excellent performance. This Grand Soleil 43 can sleep eight in 3 large double cabins and a large double in the saloon

Her current owner purchased her in 2012 and has sailed her in the Caribbean for two winters. TRUE COLOURS comprehensive specification includes a set of laminate sails that have only been used once, a watermaker and a hydrogenerator. She will have a new Featherstream propeller fitted shortly.  She was antifouled and the engine and saildrive were serviced in March 2018.

This Grand Soleil 43 has a comprehensive specification and is more than ready for her next Blue Water adventure.
