Last week I had the pleasure of attending the Solaris Yachts sea trial event in St Tropez. Accompanied by clients from the UK it was a great opportunity to view the yachts on display; 47, 50, 55, 68 and 72 custom, as well as speak to owners and of course once the wind picked up, take them out for sail in the beautiful surroundings of the Golfe de St Tropez.
Berthon International are the UK agents for Solaris yachts.
Solaris Yachts started building yachts in 1974 and has a great history of constructing and refitting custom yachts. Today Solaris build a world class range of performance cruising yachts, from 37 feet to 60 feet, all of which are designed by Soto Acebal. In addition to their high quality class yachts, they also have an active custom division.
With their distinctive Italian good looks, sparkling sailing, and light, airy interiors, they offer fun and exhilarating family yachting with easy, comfortable living too. They can achieve fast passage times without the need for large crews and are the prettiest yachts in any anchorage.
Don’t worry if you missed St Tropez and would like the opportunity to trail any of the Solaris range.
Our friends at Solaris Yachts invite you to take part in the 2018 Solaris Days event in the beautiful Costa Smeralda. Owners, clients, press and more than 30 Solaris yachts will come together for this unique event in Porto Rotondo.
There will be the opportunity to view and trial yachts, mingle, ask questions and of course take part in the 2 races held on the weekend, followed by the award ceremony which takes place on the Sunday evening.

The highlight of the event, the Solaris Cup, takes place on the Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd June.
