The Grand Soleil 44 Race was designed as a high performance cruiser/ racer. She certainly delivers on both counts with a comfortable interior along with the higher technical standard of sailing system and controls.
This 2003 Grand Soleil 44 Race is found in good condition and ready to sail by her new owner. She benefits from a Carbon Mast, Boom and Spinnaker Pole as well as an extensive sail wardrobe.
In 2011/2012 this yacht underwent IMS to IRC optimisation to bring her up to a very competitive level. Works included reducing the weight (to 7.9 Tonnes) by using Carbon fibre in the hull structure along with fairing the keel , new folding prop, new running rigging and a significant rig overhaul.
