The new Grand Soleil 44 represents the brilliant design intuition and the unique positioning on the market, anticipating the requests of increasingly demanding owners interested in a yacht with a double purpose: cruising, and racing.
After the World Premiere at the Genoa Boat Show, which received a huge amount of attention by the media and the international public, the new 44-footer exceeded the most ambitious expectations during its first trials at sea.
Portofino and the Gulf of Tigullio saw the first nautical miles of GS 44, where there was also a dedicated photo shooting (in partnership with B&G, official supplier for all the electronics of the GS 44) by Carlo Borlenghi, a photographer with much experience and fame in the sailing sector.
Matteo Polli, the lead designer responsible for redefining Grand Soleil 44 hull geometries, took turns on board and at the helm, with Enrico Zennaro, an established competitor at the palmarès including 8 World titles, 7 European titles and 12 Italian titles.
