New Grand Soleil 44 Performance

From the World Premiere at the Genoa Boat Show to her natural habitat: the sea, the wind, and amongst passionate sailors. The Grand Soleil 44 was created with the aim of satisfying owners who appreciate both performance and the luxury of comfort during navigation, the true family feeling of the Grand Soleil range. Made entirely in Forlì by Cantiere del Pardo, among craftsmen and meticulous industrial processes, the GS 44 is the result of over 45 years of experience and originality Made in Italy.


Built by designer Matteo Polli, the lines of the GS 44 hull are the perfect synthesis of elegance and navigability. A hull that focuses on light streamlined shapes giving the yacht a sense of sportiness and practicality, especially seen within its stylistic touches and geometry that can be found on the deckhouse, the bulwarks, and on the transom. Overall offering a deck plan for regatta speed, but also easy to handle when cruising.


The GS 44 is where movement coexists with livability, through large and beautiful interior spaces, amplified by the brightness that filters through the windows of the hull and the deck. Three cabins and two bathrooms, both with separate shower cubicles, complete the relaxation area. The L-shaped kitchen and dinette with a comfortable U-shaped sofa and table are positioned centrally, offering hospitality to up to eight people. Another three-seater sofa with a chart table adds even more comfort and flexibility for guests onboard.


Comfort, style and functionality, in perfect balance between a sporty hull and the extraordinary interior liveability, with a clean-cut layout which includes three cabins and two bathrooms, a L- shaped kitchen and a large dinette, to seat up over 8 people.
The space below deck enjoys a generous beam which provides very comfortable volumes, made even more enjoyable by the considerable natural light entering through the various hull and deck windows.

From Performance to Race

The soul of the Grand Soleil 44 is that of a performance cruiser designed to be competitive in IRC and ORC classes. The rearward positioning of the mast allows a greater sail area, allowing the sails to have an advantage in the performance version, particularly in light air conditions and when exiting the turns. Even more effective solutions are found in the Race version, providing 6 winches instead of 4, always within reach of the helmsman, as well as the carbon mast, and other details aimed at maximizing even more speed during racing.
