About this Grand Soleil 56


This is the Grand Soleil 56 that featured in the sales brochures. She is a highly specified yacht having had 2 owners since new, both of whom have kept the boat updated and in wonderful condition.  You will find few boats kept in this condition; the teak is exceptional, and a highlight when you step onboard.

This is a large, spacious yacht, with a clean and uncluttered deck plan offering all the modern luxuries you could wish for.

The Grand Soleil 56 is a powerful yacht on the water out pacing all other cruising yachts in her class with a set up for short handed sailing.

Around the cockpit with her new canvas work and cockpit cushions, there is a cosy and warm feel to relax and unwind in. 

There has been a no expense spared approach to the ongoing upkeep and this is reflected in all the details and extensive equipment list.

Note that the photos in this listing were taken September 2021.

Manufacturer Provided Description

The new Grand Soleil 56', designed by Philippe Briand, is the latest demonstration of Cantiere del Pardo's philosophy of building a high performance sailing yacht, easy to sail even shorthanded, without compromising comfort and luxury.

The Grand Soleil 56 is born after years of important victories with their development yachts in highly competitive IMS circuits (World, European and Italian Championship winners 2002 and 2003). Cantiere del Pardo decided to participate in all these major regattas in order to best explore, and test under extreme conditions hull forms, appendages, materials and building techniques and then transfer this technology to the new Grand Soleil 56, for the ultimate safety and comfort of the owner and crew.
