Welcome to Solaris Yachts UK, a joint venture between Richard Baldwin and Berthon International. Richard has been selling Solaris Yachts for years and he and Berthon have worked together for many more in the general yacht market.
Solaris Yachts began constructing yachts in 1974 and the yard has a great history of both building and refitting custom yachts. Today Solaris builds a world class range of performance cruising yachts from 40 feet to 112 feet, all of which are designed by Soto Acebal and the Solaris in house design team. 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.
An important Solaris trademark is the 40mm main bulkhead which is fully laminated to both the hull and the deck as are all partial bulkheads and joinery. This provides a strong and stable structure. The craftsmen at Solaris adopt a thoughtful approach to all aspects of the yacht’s build, from keel attachment to chain plates to the faultless interior joinery. The quality of build is evident throughout.

The Solaris 44 sets a new standard in the performance cruising sector. For the first time, a yacht of this size has four winches positioned aft, close to the helmsman, to control all the below-deck lines and enable safe short-handed sailing. The Soto design continues the consistent theme of the range, with a fast, stable and forgiving hull shape that sports a dreadnought bow for maximum water line length and a broad, chined stern to reduce drag and increase stability. Another new feature is the twin rudders which provide excellent directional stability, especially in heavy conditions. The hull design also provides for a roomy and light interior with three double cabins and one bathroom as standard, and an optional second bathroom forward.View Yacht Details
The Solaris 47, with her high performance hull shape, that performs beautifully even in adverse weather conditions, has a high stability coefficient enabling her to maintain sail area in significant breeze. She is a development of the Solaris 50 and 58 and like her sisters she can be comfortably sailed by a couple whilst more than capable in a racing role when required. She has a spacious dinghy garage, while below decks there are 3 cabins and 2 heads compartments. The ergonomics of the interior have been carefully considered in arriving at the finished design.View Yacht Details
Developed from the Solaris 48, which was a benchmark yacht introduced to the market in 2006, a range of evolutionary new ideas have been incorporated into the Solaris 50. She is equipped with 4 winches at the twin wheels and all lines are led aft to give total control of the sailing function. A self-tacking jib, foldaway sprayhood and integrated bowsprit add to the sailing experience. She has a large sail locker which can accommodate a crew berth if needed. She lends herself to fast, safe short-handed cruising. With over 50 hulls now built it is obvious the 50 is a successful yacht in the popular 15m sector.View Yacht Details
The Solaris 55 was the result of a 14-month collaboration with Soto Acebal and the Solaris team. It was important to achieve a marriage of performance, aesthetics and functionality. She carries her maximum beam aft, and a high stability ratio and righting moment is a feature of her design, which go together with a t-keel, with lead bulb, which has a stability ratio of over 40%. She is easily handled by small crews. All sleeping cabins have en-suite heads and the forward lazarette can be easily adapted to become a crew quarter.View Yacht Details
The new Solaris 60 is a proper cruiser/racer inspired by the idea of creating a mini Maxi. A fast and powerful yacht in heavy seas, the helming position well outboard offers superb vision forward for the helmsman. Attention has been paid to the correct distribution of all variable weight to ensure that it remains amidships in order to retain the correct trim of the yacht. She has a modern reverse bow for improved wave penetration. The interior can be specified to the new owner's every whim. The tender garage has longitudinal access so the dinghy and outboard can remain together for launch, the retrieval of which is accomplished using a capstan winch.View Yacht Details
The Solaris 64 RS is the smallest of the semi-custom Solaris Maxi yacht designs from Solaris conceived for more extended bluewater sailing. Built to the well proven Solaris monolithic structure. The raised saloon offers bright and airy accommodation while the deck layout, developed by Solaris, creates a yacht easily handled by a small crew. Another unique feature of the yacht is the addition of longitudinal tender garage while not impacting on the yachts aft accommodation.View Yacht Details
Much like her smaller sistership the 68 RS has been developed for long distance bluewater cruising. The increase in size offers a little more flexibility with interior layouts to suit a range of owner requirements. Luxury cruising is the main aim and a lot of thought has been given to her seakeeping and performance, the machine room, tankage and systems being centrally positioned for maximum comfort at sea with the high performance hull. Again, as with all the Solaris range, the deck layout is optimised to be easily and safely managed by a small crew.View Yacht Details
The largest in the RS range, the Solaris 80 RS is a true world girdling yacht encompassing all that is good about Solaris who strive for development and innovation. The 80 offers a range of semi-custom interiors and the proven deck arrangement and systems developed by Solaris. She is constructed using the best composite materials, pre-preg sprint technology. All this gives you a yacht that can sail the world’s oceans with unparalleled comfort, performance and safety.View Yacht Details
A truly custom yacht and the first of the Solaris Maxi yachts, like the 80, she is built at the Solaris advanced composites facility. Offering variable draft and custom interior solutions, the first of the Solaris 111 SY is due for launch spring/summer 2020 and will premiere at Cannes 2020.
