The new Grand Soleil 48 is born from the cooperation between the prestigious Nauta Yacht Design team, the naval architect Marco Lostuzzi and Cantiere del Pardo’s Technical Dept. Their expertise resulted in an important Made-in-Italy project: a real revolution in the 50-feet sailing market.
The sail plan has undergone exhaustive VPP speed simulation programs analysis. The outcome is a powerful but easy handling sail plan, with all control lines lead back to the cockpit.
