Broker comments

The Grand Soleil 44 Race is a beautiful and fast cruiser racer; it offers a higher technical standard of racing incorporating advanced sheeting control, hydraulic backstay and rig tensioning systems. The carbon Sparcraft mast, carbon spinnaker pole and the rod rigging gives the Grand Soleil 44 Race an excellent sailing quality, with hull, rudder and keel shaped to meet Grand Prix sailing levels.

The Grand Soleil 44 Race has a 20 metre 9/10 fractional mast; a 55 Sqm Mainsail, a 42 Sqm non-overlapping jib, and a 169 Sqm spinnaker, with a foam sandwiched fibre glass hull and a 2.65 metre deep lead keel. This all means that there is plenty of power aloft, while the weight remains down low, giving a low centre-of-gravity and good sailing characteristics.

The Grand Soleil 44 Race series has won races all over the world and is still very successful on the circuit.

On the inside the Grand Soleil 44 Race still manages a high level of comfort on top of its fast sailing ability. It offers simplicity with effectiveness, yet maintaining chic Italian style. The Grand Soleil 44 Race comes with two cabins as standard, meaning that less weight is offered for the racer, but allows more space for crew sleeping on board. The main saloon is kept open and clear, offering an excellent space for entertaining with comfortable seating around a large dining table.

The Grand Soleil 44 Race was designed by the Dutch designers Rolf E. Vrolijk and Fietje Judel based in Bremerhaven in Germany. They were chief designers for the America’s Cup team Alinghi and Vrolijk played a decisive role in enabling a European craft to win the world’s oldest and most prestigious sailing trophy for the first time. Judel/Vrolijk has designed TP-52 and Vendée Globe award winning designs as well.

Cantiere del Pardo is based in Forlì in Italy and build the Grand Soleil series of yachts. Their objective was to produce regatta boats that combined the best possible performance with elegant and innovative design. Cantiere del Pardo has been creating yachts with care and passion, each one unique, thus establishing the company as one of the top producers worldwide.
