The new range Long Cruise was born from the timeless style of Grand Soleil performance line, this has been optimised for “Blue Water” sailing. Design, comfort and quality, characterised by Grand Soleil DNA are the heart of this new 46 Long Cruise, embellished by Nauta Design.
One of the main differences between the Long Cruise and the Performance ranges is the hull shape designed by Marco Lostuzzi. The LC range, with its deeper and larger sections provides a greater luxurious accommodation and exterior comfort when sailing or living onboard, keeping a high performance standard.
The greater hull volume also allows for bigger fresh water and fuel tanks, battery bank and other heavy equipment, mounted lower and in the centre of the boat. This lowers the centre of gravity which together with a well proportioned sail plan, optimises the stability and safety when sailing. All the bulkheads are laminated to the hull in order to have a stronger structure and thus more safety in sea.
