Broker’s Comments

The Grand Soleil 45 is a Germán Frers design (in fact he refers to her as the Grand Soleil 44 in his own design folio), and was built by Italy’s Cantiere del Pardo in Forlì – near Bologna.

Grand Soleil 45, ROSITA is both achingly pretty to look at, whilst retaining strong performance, without being overpowered. This is thanks to her deep keel and sea-kindly hull form; promoting good light air performance, yet a stiff and powerful upwind gait thanks to her 39% ballast ratio.

Grand Soleil have been in business since 1973 and have developed a niche of unfussy, high-quality interiors. Nothing that sticks out or too innovative, but quietly well done to a high standard and gives a comfortable and satisfying place to stay for the cruising fraternity and enough open space below for the racing fraternity.

This Grand Soleil 45 has cruised extensively in her current long, and highly experienced ownership. Her crew have maximised the sense of security gained by her predictable manners at sea, in particular her swift passage making potential, and have kept her updated and optimized as required.

Her broad, safe cockpit and uncluttered decks make for an easily worked environment, and are a particular feature of her and her sister ships. In tandem with a powerful rig, her sail plan can be trimmed to suit conditions, and below deck, her three cabin/two heads layout is ideal for longer periods under sail and provides an inviting oasis of calm after a long leg pushing purposefully to windward.

Having viewed her on a damp, grey November day in Brixham, we can confirm that she has been wholly cherished as a yacht; always keeping those on board safe and secure, whilst notching up very impressive passage times, even when conditions do not play ball. She is a delight to view and is a beautifully kept strong offshore cruising yacht.

Owner’s Comments

“It is with great sadness that we are selling Rosita but age has caught up with us. She has provided us with countless memorable sailing adventures and has a very comfortable live aboard layout. Passage times never ceased to amaze us. The wonderful sound of the water on the hull as she sails majestically through the water will be sadly missed.

These comments truly reflect my feelings and I know that she will provide the new owner with the same amount of happiness and pride my wife and I have experienced.” – CG.
