Presentation

Introducing possibly the most stunning yacht yet to leave the Cantiere del Pardo yard.  

This incredible design is the collaboration of three important teams: The technical department of Cantiere del Pardo, Nauta Yacht Design for the interiors and the deck layout and Marco Lostuzzi for the naval architecture.

Their goal was to produce an incredibly fast performance cruising yacht and to offer this both to the cruising customer and also the serious yacht racer.

The GS48 Performance is available two different versions, the Race version and the Performance version. This version is the Performance version and this stunning yacht is priced including the following additions:

-Fixed Composite Bow Sprit
-Hydraulic opening Swim platform
-Upgraded Harken Performa 60.2 Electric Primary winches
-Cadet Grey Dodger and Bimini
-Port and Starboard opening guard rails
-Internal and External LED lights
-B&G Triton Navigation Package including Auto Pilot, Zeus 2 GPS plotter
-Fusion Stereo system 750 series
-Stunning internal Oak cabinetry

In true Grand Soleil style each vessel is customizable depending on the customers needs:

World Class Construction:

 First-class materials and techniques have been used for this important project. The main characteristic of the Grand Soleil 48 is that the owner can choose among different kinds of construction: the infusion of the Race version can be done either in epoxy resin and Fibreglass or in epoxy resin and carbon with four composite bulkheads. The Performance version, instead, is hand-laminated and realised in vinylester and Fibreglass (the main bulkhead is made of composite). In both the versions the bulkheads are veneered to the hull, creating a unique single structure which can easily support the loads of the mast, the keel and the shrouds. In the Race version, moreover, the frame is made of carbon unidirectional fibre). All the female moulds have been made by numeric-controlled models in order to obtain the best precision. As far as the keel is concerned, it has a resistant steel blade, while the bulb is made in lead. In the Race version, the keel has a 3 mt draft: that guarantees a considerable stability. The single wheel, high draft rudder is in carbon in the Race version, while it has a steel axis and Fibreglass blade in the Performance version.

The deck from Performance to Race:

The deck plan is one of the most interesting features of the new Grand Soleil 48. It is indeed what mainly distinguish the Race version from the Performance one. The first one has six or eight winches on the deck - it comes with two aft winches to regulate the split backstay -, a hydraulic piston at bow to regulate the stay, a jib equipped with diagonal tracks and a dolphin striker 100% longer than the Performance version one, which gives a wider sail plan surface. The Performance version is equipped with four winches nearby the rudder and standard self-rotating jib that allows an easy manoeuvring of the boat and a greater comfort even to the smallest crews. Simple technical solutions have been well integrated to the deck aesthetics. This excellent combination has given as an outcome a wide cockpit, a neat-design and comfortable deck, excellent performances and speed during the races, easy manoeuvring when cruising. As far as the external layout is concerned, the hull windows can also be removed- which can be taken to extremes in a completely "nude" version.

A Powerful and easily to handle Sail Plan:

The sail plan has been studied for a long time with fake VPP speed programs. The outcome is a powerful but easily handling sail plan. In addition to this, all the Controls have been put back to the cockpit. At bow, the fixed dolphin striker has been designed to hoist both the gennaker and the Code 0, which can be easily hoisted and furled directly to the sail locker. The first three boats sold belong to the Race version. The first one has a square top main sail and PBO shrouds, while the other two are in carbon. The mast, characterised by a double cross-tree order with a 9/10 stay, can be in carbon or in aluminium. Through the split backstay, instead, it is possible to reach the tender garage from the aft.

Interior:

The spaces under the deck have a wide beam and a free board that give spacious and comfortable interiors with three cabins and two heads, both with separated shower stall - a fantastic solution for a race soul boat -, the kitchen, the saloon and the chart table. The natural lighting gives more comfort, because it comes through the windows located on the hull and on the deck. All the interiors are made with high quality materials in accordance with Grand Soleil's unique style: in the Race version, the lightened woods allow to save 30-40% of weight. As far as the Race version is concerned, thanks to the modular parts the boat becomes lighter and creates more space in order to stretch out the sails without damaging the furniture.

The Grand Soleil 48 Performance, or Race are in a category of their own, from build quality to Performance on the water this wonderful and exciting new design is a must see, for more information please contact us today.
