Grand Soleil 48 Race

Cantiere del Pardo is finally ready for its new, great launch. The Grand Soleil 48 Performance is born by the cooperation between three important teams: the Technical Dept. of Cantiere del Pardo, Nauta #yacht Design for the interiors and the deck, and Marco Lostuzzi for the naval architecture. Their expertise has translated into an important project. First goal: creating a fast and performing sailing boat.

The new Grand Soleil 48 Performance belongs to Cantiere del Pardo’s Performance category. Double offer for his owners: two different products to meet two different kind of customers’ needs. On one hand, the Long Cruise, which satisfies long cruise-lovers; on the other hand, the Performance, thought for sport-loving owners who look for a highperformance boat, perfectly fit for races. An aspect Cantiere del Pardo has always believed in, if we think about the Grand Soleil 40, the bestseller boat – 290 units sold. Designed by Massimo Paperini in 2001, she won many awards all over the world and was already available in two versions: a more racing one, with a wider sail surface and a bigger draft, and a more cruising one with greater comfort.
