About this LAURENT GILES 43

This 43’ Laurent Giles designed light displacement cruiser was built in 1988 for its highly experienced sole owners in Guernsey by West Custom Marine (now Green Marine) in Lymington using state of the art epoxy resin glass fibre construction methods. A fast passage maker which has enabled the owners and their family to extensively cruise in European waters from Gibraltar to as far north as the Shetland Islands, Norwegian Fjords and Baltic Sea. In additional to having a very high specification and thorough inventory, no expense has been spared on maintaining this comfortable and easy to handle cruiser to a very high standard, including a series of regular refits and upgrades. Hull coppercoated. 2014 survey available on request.
