Extensively refitted and very smart example of the very popular Grand Soleil 46.3 aft cockpit cruising yacht. Push-button winches, in-mast furling and plenty of big-ticket updates in recent seasons including new teak decks in 2021.    FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:   ALBA is a sparkling and nicely refitted example of the hugely popular J&J Designs Grand Soleil 46.3 performance cruiser from Cantiere del Pardo in Italy.  Benefitting from the 2.20m keel option and taller 3-spreader rig, ALBA is powerful to sail, yet easy to handle thanks to her inmast furling and Harken push-button primary winches.   Below decks, ALBA boasts a three-cabin, two heads layout with berths for up to six. Recent refit work updates her interior with new galley counters and saloon upholstery.   ALBA benefits from the following specification highlights:

  • 3-cabin, 2-heads interior layout
  • Dark green Awkgrip painted topsides
  • 2.20m lead keel with triple-spreader tall mast option
  • Teak laid decks, cockpit and bathing platform – replaced 2021
  • Yanmar 4JH 56hp engine with saildrive gearbox and 3-bladed Flexofold propeller
  • Inmast furling system plus inner forestay for staysail
  • Recently replaced standing rigging
  • 2015 Tri-radial mainsail and genoa
  • Gennaker with snuffer
  • Harken winches and deck-gear with electric primary winches
  • Raymarine/Raytheon electronics with chart plotter and radar
  • Tender with electric outboard
  • Updated interior with Alcantara upholstery in saloon and upgraded galley counters
  • Flat screen TV
  • Recently replaced diesel-fired heating system
  • 2021: full new teak deck, new kitchen surface
  • 2018: rebuilding the rudder, steering cables, running rigging partially replaced
  • 2017: new standing rigging
  • 2015: new head sails, new genoa, underwater hull grounding and paint, new upholstery in saloon, new heating, new autopilot, new VHF, motor insulation, new batteries
  PRESS REVIEW:   The new Grand Soleil 46.3 is a worthy successor to the popular Grand Soleil 45. While the hydrodynamics are a bit more refined, the powerful lines and beautiful styling remain unchanged. Built in northern Italy by Cantiere del Pardo and highly regarded in Europe, Grand Soleils are a line of performance cruisers, ranging from 34 to 64 feet. Following the path blazed by Nautor and Baltic, each Grand Soleil model is designed by a well-known naval architect and features a sleek deck profile, modern underbody, elegant interior appointments and top-quality construction.   At first glance, the Grand Soleil 46.3, designed by the J & J Design Group, looks a lot like the Frers-designed 45 it replaces. However, a closer inspection reveals more efficient hull sections, especially forward, where the bow overhang has been reduced. The 46.3 is actually more closely related to the Doug Peterson-designed Grand Soleil 50, which is not surprising since J & J Design Group worked closely with Peterson on that project. Although the 46.3 is only a little more than a foot longer overall than the 45, the waterline length is nearly 4 feet longer. By pushing the interior to the ends of the boat, useful space has been gained, although the prismatic coefficient has also increased slightly. The additional LWL and the fact that the 46.3 actually displaces less than the 45 and carries more sail area, translates into improved performance, at least on paper. I was eager to find out how the 46.3 actually performed on the water.   I joined the boat dockside at Port Annapolis. We quickly cast off the lines and motored toward the bay to catch a crisp morn
