Below, the white upholstery and countertops contrast well with the rich mahogany lockers, cabinets, and furniture. The layout features a vast owner's stateroom forward with its own enclosed head; a central saloon, the centerpiece of which is a folding dining table that may be the largest ever outfitted on a 43-foot boat; and twin doubles aft. A second big head is to port; the L-shaped galley lies to starboard. The nav station, also to port, seems somewhat of an afterthought, but everything else in the interior looks and feels right. All told, the Grand Soleil 43 makes a grand statement indeed.
