In May 2017 Cantiere del Pardo announced an exciting new division; GRAND SOLEIL CUSTOM, which will be dedicated to sailing boats between 60 to 80 feet.
This new initiative has driven Cantiere del Pardo to open a new shipyard in Fano city, an hour drive from the flagship shipyard in Forlì, as more space and different technologies are required. A dedicated team specialised in Maxi boat production will take care of the whole construction process, with the naval architects and designers welcome to be involved at each stage. The custom line will mainly provide small series of semi custom production, using by request different materials for the hull and deck, starting from carbon fibre up to fibreglass, while the interiors will be completely customised by the request of the owners.
The first hull in this new range will be the GS 80 Custom, designed in collaboration with the famous Italian naval architect Ceccarelli. This specific hull and deck will be made completely in carbon fibre and will be dedicated to the racing world, yet will have the comfort of a cruiser.
