Grand Soleil 72 is ready for launching

by Grand Soleil Yachts 30 Jul 2022 14:55 UTC 6-11 September 2022

The new flagship ofthe Grand Soleilfleet will be launched in few weeks ahead ofits world premiere, at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2022.

A unique project by Cantiere del Pardo in collaboration with Franco Corazza, Matteo Polli, Nauta Design, and Marco Lostuzzi, all great names in Italian sailing. All internationally recognized for outstanding projects in the nautical field signed Made in Italy.

The goal of this project is to realize a boat with an explicitly Italian aesthetic, elegant and modern design with high comfort ergonomics both below deck and outside.

The Shipyard's craftsmanship and experience gained over 50 years of history are not only limited to developing excellent aesthetic lines but also to the care technical details of all those areas where the eye does not normally reach. First, among many, all the composite bulkheads for the interior are weighed one by one while defining the thickness of each ad hoc to optimize its strength, lightness and performance.

Ensuring the reliability of Grand Soleil boats has always been a strength of Cantiere del Pardo. All construction processes and onboard systems are tested and certified with the strictest quality controls. Great attention to detail and unprecedented meticulousness especially distinguishes the Grand Soleil 72 project for every single component.

Alberto Cocchi's latest pictures taken at the production site, are indeed meant to capture the work in progress prior to the hull and deck merger. A milestone in the assembly process before moving on to interior fitting and hull finishing.

For those who love technical details, the Grand Soleil 72 hull lines designed by Matteo Polli are featured by a prominent V-shaped bow. The significant dynamic length, thanks to slips and low wetted surface, allows the stern to be eased for reduced friction of the submerged sections when sailing. This allows higher dynamic speed and stability when the boat is heeled, leading not only to better performance in light wind conditions, typical of the Mediterranean area but also to excellent sailing ease and safety.

The hull is made through an epoxy-based vacuum infusion process of vinylester resin into biaxial fiberglass and unidirectional carbon fabrics, resulting in a light and strong hull. While the most stressed hull sections such as longitudinal and transversal structures are laminated in fiberglass and stiffened by carbon reinforcements to increase strength and rigidity.

The Interiors layout, by Nauta Design, is in perfect connection with the geometries of the deck, according to their usual and highly valued signature. Nauta conceived, designed, and refined the volumes and details of the deck to exploit every single space, thus achieving a coherent and holistic relationship among them.

The interiors, dimensions, ergonomics, storage, functions and quality of all accessories are set to super yacht standards. The design and various material palettes connote interiors with an understated, fresh, elegant and welcoming style.
