The new Grand Soleil 72 follows the same path as the other Grand Soleil models offering a Long Cruise version as well. The Long Cruise version will be distinguished by its deckhouse characterized by a large 270° view window. In this version, the deckhouse will also be raised and enlarged compared to the Performance. Technically this will enable two beneficial features; one raising the flooring of the central part of the boat therefore increasing the walking area and second allowing several electrical and mechanical systems to be moved under the dinette area. In cockpit, entrance hatch and ladder will be moved laterally in order to obtain a C-shaped seating and in one line maintaining two large sundecks aft of benches which also characterize the Performance version. The LC version will have the whole dinette raised allowing owners and passengers to enjoy the view both in a sitting and standing position. Internally, various solutions have been studied for Performance and Long Cruise versions both with the owner’s cabin forward however with two different settings for the galley being aft or forward as well as providing different distribution solutions for the guest and crew cabins.
