    The Grand Soleil 44 is a beautiful and fast cruiser racer; it offers a higher technical standard of yachting incorporating advanced sheeting control, hydraulic backstay and rig tensioning systems. The carbon Sparcraft mast, carbon spinnaker pole and the rod rigging gives the Grand Soleil 44 an excellent sailing quality, with hull, rudder and keel shaped to meet Grand Prix sailing levels.


    The Grand Soleil 44 has a 20 metre 9/10 fractional mast; a 55 Sqm Mainsail, a 42 Sqm non-overlapping jib, and a 169 Sqm spinnaker, with a foam sandwiched fibre glass hull and a 2.63 metre deep lead keel. This all means that there is plenty of power aloft, while the weight remains down low, giving a low centre-of-gravity and good sailing characteristics.

    The Grand Soleil 44 series has won races all over the world and is still very successful on the circuit.

    On the inside the Grand Soleil 44 still manages a high level of comfort on top of its fast sailing ability. It offers simplicity with effectiveness, yet maintaining chic Italian style. The Grand Soleil 44 comes with two cabins as standard, meaning that less weight is offered for the racer, but allows more space for crew sleeping on board. The main saloon is kept open and clear, offering an excellent space for entertaining with comfortable seating around a large dining table.

    Win on the course and in the boardroom!

    The Designer

    The Grand Soleil 44 was designed by the Dutch designers Rolf E. Vrolijk and Fietje Judel based in Bremerhaven in Germany. They were chief designers for the America’s Cup team Alinghi and Vrolijk played a decisive role in enabling a European craft to win the world’s oldest and most prestigious sailing trophy for the first time. Judel/Vrolijk has designed TP-52 and Vendée Globe award winning designs as well.

    The Builder

    Cantiere del Pardo is based in Forlì in Italy and build the Grand Soleil series of yachts. Their objective was to produce regatta boats that combined the best possible performance with elegant and innovative design. Cantiere del Pardo has been creating yachts with care and passion, each one unique, thus establishing the company as one of the top producers worldwide. Cantiere del Pardo has always relied on the top designers of the moment to develop designs with great personality, characterised by their excellent performance and unmistakable elegance. These distinguishing features make the Grand Soleil yachts icons of style and elegance. Today, the Grand Soleil brand epitomises an explicit lifestyle, embodied by a genuine passion for the sea, design, technology and innovation.

    The Yacht’s History

    This Grand Soleil 44 was commissioned by Luciano Gandini a passionate sailor and presently the executive director of Mylius Yachts. He worked with the Judel-Vrolijk; the original yacht designer to enhance the performance of this vessel. This included using carbon fibre in the hull structure, improvement to the bow shape, and enhancements on the keel. It was originally race in 2003 – 2005 at a very competitive level on the Italian IMS race circuit. Her second owner took her over in 2007 and had been lightly sailed, but generally stored. At the beginning of 2011 she has been cruising round the Mediterranean, finally ending up where she is presently based in the UK.

    This yacht has been update in 2011 at an excellent French boat builder. The refit has included: fairing the keel; new engine seal; new halyards and sheets; new sails; mast enhancements with a significant rig overhaul.

    In 2014, a suite of new electronics added (New AIS-VHF, New EPIRB, iMux, E85001, New Autopilot rudder sensor & control head).

    In 2015, the yacht had new mast jack, backstay ram seal kit, Garmin AIS fitted, new VHF wire & aerial.

    In 2016, maintenance has included: a new backstay; new cold water pressure pump; new folding prop; replacing the goose-neck (wear); new exterior speakers; and engine & all winches serviced.

    This is a Top Condition Yacht.

    The yacht meets and exceeds ISAF Offshore Special Regulations in terms of yacht design, safety equipment and crew training for Category 2 offshore sailing.
