Grand Soleil Yachts: a proud and timeless sailing fleet
Grand Soleil Yahcts specializes in making and selling loxury sailing boats, with three ranges: long cruise, performance and race range. Born in 1973 in Bologna by Cantiere del Pardo, Grand Soleil is the adventurer of the trio, when the ocean becomes uncharted and life aboard is commanded by two natural forces, the wind and the water. Grand Soleil Yachts – time to explore.
The shipyard, a father figure to three brands
Where heart and passion are blended with technology and style: the best of Made in Italy. For 45 years Cantiere del Pardo has been one of the most prestigious and highly regarded shipyards producing stylish, high performance, quality and confortable yachts for three different yachting brands; Grand Soleil, Pardo and VanDutch.
More than 45 years of history
Since 1973, Cantiere del Pardo has produced more than 4.000 boats. It occupies a 40.000 square meters surface and is split into three macro-departments: millwork, using cutting-edge technologies and processes; carpentry, based on tradition and the manual skills of its work force; and assembly, where everything is put together carefully up to final testing. The shipyard started in 1973 with Grand Soleil, to follow Pardo in 2017 and now the acquisition of VanDutch in 2020.
It all began in 1973…
The shipyard started in 1973 with Grand Soleil, producing high quality sailing boats branded Grand Soleil. The first model ever was the Grand Soleil 34 Finot, then after this first success, many other models followed.
