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.
