Grand Soleil 44 – Born to Perform

The new Grand Soleil 44 Performance won great acclaim at the 2020 Genoa International Boat Show and has been nominated for both the 2020 British Yachting Awards and the 2021 European Yacht of the Year. The latest creation from Cantiere del Pardo took a debut sail in the stunning Gulf of Tigullio off Portofino, with designer Matteo Polli at the helm.

Grand Soleil GS44

The Grand Soleil 44 is available in two versions: GS 44 Performance and GS 44 Race.

The Performance model has an aluminium mast with a simple well-designed sail plan, including a self-tacking jib as standard. Four winches are part of an ergonomic open cockpit layout, designed for fast, comfortable cruising.

The Race version has two additional winches to aid racing manoeuvres and forward of the mast the carbon rig has a larger sail plan, delivering a tremendous boost to power.
