Our comments
During a two-week cruise on the Grand Soleil 50, Cantieri del Pardo, you often feel two strong impulses: to embrace the boat designer who has created a very good and fast vessel, and at the same time to kick a project manager
that has riddled te boat with small problems, enough to drive an experienced sailor crazy. God and the Devil are, you know, in detail! Great design, good equipment and a modern sail plan to push the boat speed and GS 50 in the rankings of the races. Certainly we would not sail against uncomfortably high seas, say more than half a meter, since the speed achieved with the design and weight is a remarkable price when it faces the wave.
Perfect for the Adriatic, Croatia, Greece and the Ionian Sea Sardinia (East Coast), I'm not having too much fun on the waves of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Rather than leaving the Med with this boat, I'd join a commercial ship, because some genius has designed a beautiful fender container right behind the anchor, and this huge space is not self-draining, a few cubic meter that if you fill salt water, it becomes a few tons. Chapeau.
The interior is fine, elegant and well finished, without being linear, thankfully, minimal. The cabin is adequate for the price and category, the good toilets. Too bad the plastic ceiling has been copied from the Ryanair Boeing. In conclusion: charter and have fun, but let someone else buy it.
