Grand Soleil 37′
We are not talking here about experiences conjured up in the imagination by means of words and fictitious atmospheres; rather, it is a question of directly observing, experiencing first-hand, perhaps under heavy sea conditions, or when for others the knots might be too few for planing on the waves… Launched in 2005, as the first product of the collaboration with the Botin&Carkeek design team, the Grand Soleil 37’ has translated the intentions which inspired it into concrete results, by immediately coming to dominate the most important IRC and IMS circuits, with victories in the Italian, European, Spanish IMS Championships and podium placements in SPI OUEST e COWES WEEK in IRC.
Not only racing
When cruising, the Grand Soleil 37′ fulfills the second part of its promise, proving that performance and speed can be attained without sacrificing the comfort and livability of a yacht.
The reduced wetted surface area, wedge shape of the bow, maximum beam carried aft, and careful distribution of the volumes make the Grand Soleil 37′ particularly easy to control, even with a short crew, thereby assuring sailing enjoyment, speed and stability at the same time.
For the competitively minded, the Grand Soleil 37’ is available in a dedicated Race configuration, custom designed and built by Cantiere del Pardo, with carbon rudder, sail area and appendages specifically sized to maximize racing performance.
And for everything else, perhaps even just a short pleasure cruise with friends, the outfitting of the yacht remains unaltered.
Perfectly in line with the Cantiere del Pardo tradition, the yacht provides with understated elegance all the comforts that an exacting owner who pays attention to the quality of details, can expect to find in a top-level cruiser. Below deck, the design by Patrick Roséo optimises the interior layout to create rational and ergonomic spaces. At the heart of life on board is the dinette, with wood panelling and curved lines that welcome guests into a warm, inviting setting; the chart table is functional and convenient, while to port, the practical galley along the bulwark leaves open an ample access corridor to the owner’s cabin.
Life on board
There are two options available for the interior layout: three cabins and one bathroom, or two cabins with separate WC and shower compartment. In both cases, despite its small size, Grand Soleil 37’ optimizes the organization of internal spaces, to ensure the right privacy to all guests on board.
