GS 34, the legend's return

The mythical Grand Soleil 34 is a true legend: designed by Finot in the 1970s, has remained in production until the 1980's, with over 300 hulls made. Today, past and future meet in this restyling, based on the same concept as a small-big boat. Forms are more modern, enhance performance and spaces, without sacrificing comfort and quality materials. The new nautical icon Made in Italy.

1974 Grand Soleil 34


Increasingly the yachting sector in the Med welcomes very demanding customers: those who want as much spending as little, such as having great performance for fun, high speed for quick transfers from one spot to another, rating that allows to have good results in the racing field, appealing aesthetics and innovation rooted in tradition. It is not a coincidence that more and more owners want a boat that is made perfectly for them in a market that does not match their requirements, and that’s why some want to "invent" their own boat. The Skyron’s careful study together with Cantiere del Pardo’s history, with over 40 years of excellence in boat construction, has led the yard to design once again a Small Grand Soleil 34.

COMFORT & PERFORMANCE


The project is aimed at owners who love fun, sportive cruising and offshore racing, and was inspired by the open ocean boats. Great attention was put in the design and naval architecture process in order to create an offshore racing boat that is easy to sail at maximum performance but at the same time a very comfortable fast cruiser. The new GS 34 Performance was designed for IRC handicap rating in offshore race and for ORC with an optimized sail plan and appendages. In this way the boat can be competitive in both offshore and inshore International regulations and with a great rating handicap.


MADE TO WIN


The hull geometry and appendages are the result of numerous Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and statistical analysis using Velocity Prediction Programs (VPP) compared with various rating systems. These analysis has lead into a new generation of hull with a medium light displacement for an optimal ratio between the different rating systems and between performance and sportive cruising.





Interiors

The interior layout is divided in two cabins; a large portside aft cabin and an owner cabin in the bow that can be transformed into a sail locker during race. Astern, on the starboard side there’s a very spacey and high head and behind a wide storage cabin.
