A stylish performance cruising boat ideal for those looking for adventures with style & performance.   FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:   Originally launched in 2008 for an Italian owner as ‘LUNATICO’ and with an invoice price of in excess of Euro 800,000, this hugely versatile Grand Soleil 56 boasts one of the most comprehensive inventories that we have seen in this model.

    OWNERS’ COMMENTS:   “Bought in 2013 with only 1 objective in mind - to circumnavigate safely short handed. As an Engineer, everything has always been professionally serviced and maintained. A full refit in 2016 by Maricom and TS Marine 1 year prior to our 2 year voyage. We chose the Grand Soleil 56 amongst all others due to her stability and smooth ride, large cockpit (ideal for comfort and entertaining), fast cruising hull, ease of trim and setup, beautiful lines and flat clutter-free teak decks, lots of storage space, her large saloon space with 3 x large double bedrooms all en-suite. Built-in from the factory with air-conditioning and heating when required. It was voted 'Best yacht in fleet' during our circumnavigation, she has been a real dream to sail and still is. Reason for selling is to buy a Charter Yacht and cruise even more! I am available for any questions and indeed a familiarization / training sail upon completion.” CONSTRUCTION   RCD Status:
  • Our understanding is that the yacht confirms to Directive 94/25EC (Recreational Craft Directive) category A (Ocean) for up to 12-persons.
  Hull, Deck & Superstructure Construction:
  • GRP hull, deck and superstructure construction.
  • Stratified unidirectional fibreglass offering a tensile strength of up to 25 kg/mm².
  • NPG isophthalic gelcoats, NEOGEL and vinylester resin are applied to the first layers of the hull.
  • Bulkheads laminated with 60mm flanges for increased adhesion to GRP.
  • Hot galvanised steel grid structure for transferance of rigging and keel loads.
  • Stainless steel chainplates with 27mm rods secured to grid structure.
