HULL AND DECK
The GS 42 LC’s hull, designed once again by Marco Lostuzzi, guarantees great stability thanks to greater hull volume. The well-proportioned sail plan optimizes the high-performance sailing standards.
As with the rest of the Long Cruise range, the Grand Soleil 42 LC is designed to provide greater and more luxurious comfort on board. All the lines run below the deck and are led to the steering position for easier handling and manoeuvring of the boat. The standard version is characterised by the two aft benches; which provide extra storage spaces. Two winches on each side (electric as an option) are located near the steering position in order to guarantee increased comfort and easier handling when cruising, even with a reduced crew. The in-mast furling system for the mainsail and the self-tacking jib with recessed track
s simplify the control of the boat.
Thanks to the carbon arch, the cockpit has more space for relaxing and gives greater support for the bimini top and the sprayhood. The deck layout has been designed with flush portlights, while the carbon bowsprit is designed to fly both the gennaker and the Code 0, and has an integrated support for the anchor. The deck layout is characterised by a jib furler recessed below deck, and a hydraulic stern platform. The wide side-decks take you from aft to bow with ease, the coach roof area forward of the mast providing a great place to lounge on the sunbeds.
