Manufacturer Provided Description

2 IMS World Championships, 3 IMS European Championships, 3 IMS Italian Championships, 2 times winner at the Copa del Rey and also the Fastnet Race; these are the results of our yachts during the last 3 years in the most challenging and prominent regattas in Europe. Cantiere del Pardo clearly realizes that a high level regatta provides the best test-bed for materials, the study of sail plans, positioning and sizing of deck hardware, the hydrodynamic tuning of all immersed appendages and the ideal calculation and dimension of the keel. The results obtained by Grand Soleil represent, without reserve, the quality of the work achieved.
