The Grand Soleil 46.3 utilizes a traditional, solid hand layup with multiple layers of uni-directional and bi-directional fiberglass cloth mixed with isophthalic and vinylester resins for the outer skin. Fiberglass grid (not a liner) is glued and tabbed directly to the hull to provide an extremely stiff but still accessible hull. The deck is cored except where hatches and hardware are located which is left solid. The hull to deck is both glued, glassed and mechanically fastened for a true watertight joint. There is a brass plate that runs the full perimeter where all the stanchions are threaded into allowing for easy removal if need be. The keel is lead and the rudder uses self-aligning bearings for smooth operation and feel.
CAVALLINO sleeps a total of six in three separate staterooms with additional sleeping space on the starboard settee in the main saloon. There are two well-equipped head compartments, a navigation station and a galley which would be a chef's delight. See individual sections following these general comments.
The interior joinery work is cherry-stained mahogany, sealed with polyurethane and polished to a gloss. The fit and finish are excellent throughout. The upholstery is a light beige microfib
The Master Stateroom forward has a king-size island berth on centerline with adjacent seats and surrounding shelves above. There is a large deck hatch over that can provide additional ventilation.
The ensuite head compartment has a hot and cold pressure water system for the vanity (mirrored with storage locker, drawers and custom lighting) and a shower with electric sump pump. The new marine toilet is plumbed to a holding tank with an electric discharge pump and Tankwatch alert system. Again, an overhead deck hatch provides ventilation.
To port and starboard, aft of the companionway, with double berths, hanging lockers and additional storage.
AC-shaped settee and table are located to starboard with a short settee opposite the table on the centerline, making a comfortable dining and/or entertaining area.
Just aft of this settee is the forward-facing navigation station with full-size chart table and ample storage. Outboard and above is the ship's AC/DC breaker panel, as well as all the built-in navigational electronics. There are extensive cabinets, abundant storage and custom lighting.
The full-length Galley (described below) is on the port side of the main saloon.
