Grand Soleil 48

The GS48 Performance was the protagonist of a new dedicated photo-shooting in the beautiful Gulf of La Spezia.

Through the lens of photographer Alberto Cocchi, we can look at the iconic Grand Soleil model with a completely new perspective. In addition, a video captures the most beautiful sailing moments and the most precious details of the boat.

Grand Soleil 48 Performance is a result of the collaboration among three important teams: the technical office of the Cantiere del Pardo, the Nauta Yacht Design studio which took care of the interiors and deck, and Marco Lostuzzi for naval architecture. The union of these great skills has resulted in a project that is an icon of Made in Italy shipbuilding, capable of revolutionizing the world of 50 foot sailing yachts.

GS48 Performance is indicated for the sporty owners looking for a high performance boat, capable of giving results in regattas. The sail plan has been studied at length with speed simulation programs: the result combines power with ease of control. The interiors - in top quality materials - reveal the luxurious side of a high-performance yet comfortable boat, thanks to the considerable natural light that enters through the large windows in the hull and on the deck.
