We never stop. Find us at the Genoa International Boat Show, from 1st to 6th October, for the World Premiere with the new Grand Soleil 44. Our yacht has been nominated in the category Performance Cruiser for the 2021 European Yacht Of The Year award!

There are great expectations for the presentation of the new Grand Soleil 44 at the 2020 Yachting Festival of Cannes: the new challenge of Cantiere del Pardo facing the performance world and completing the Grand Soleil Yachts Performance range, dedicated to the more sporty owners in search of a boat that offers high performance, able to give results also in regattas.

Style and elegance complete the DNA of this new 44-footer which resumes the family feeling of the other models of the range.

The "Race" version

The maximum beam of over four metres is essential to maximise the stability of shape and to enhance performances during regattas, thanks to the possibility to equip the deck with six winches. The carbon sail plan is made even more effective by the positioning of the mast further to the rear, to allow a greater sail area for the bow sails, making the boat more agile in coming out of turns. A large fore triangle also allows to make the best use of rollable sails.

Transverse rails can be mounted on request to regulate the jib lead at any manoeuvre of the boat.

Exteriors

The clean and aesthetically delightful lines of the boat design remarkably enjoyable on-deck spaces. The rearward mast position enables cockpit dimensions that have been increased significantly, compared to previous models, giving comfort and lightness to the exteriors layout solutions.

Interiors

Comfort, style and functionality, in perfect balance between a sporty hull and the extraordinary interior liveability, with a clean-cut layout which includes three cabins and two bathrooms, a L- shaped kitchen and a large dinette, to seat up over 8 people.

The space below deck enjoys a generous beam which provides very comfortable volumes, made even more enjoyable by the considerable natural light entering through the various hull and deck windows.
