Broker’s Comments

Always exciting to have one of these fantastic yachts listed. We have sold many Grand Soleil models over the years, and the owners just love their boats. This is an original owner boat, US duty paid. The Grand Soleil 52LC Sport cruiser/racer design has allowed the owner to have a great time participating in regattas and some offshore racing, as well as family and friends enjoying her while cruising around the US and BVI Islands.

Owner’s cabin is forward with offset double and two twin bed cabins aft. Main saloon is lovely with her light wood interior. She is of course complete with air conditioning, watermaker, generator and washing machine. Oil changes easy with the Reverso oil change system.

On deck, she is fully protected from the sun when not sailing, with awnings, equipment covers and other canvas. Of course, the Flexiteek decks eliminate all the work and maintenance issues common with wood decks. Twin black GRP wheels, bow thruster, electric primaries & secondaries and a hydraulically operating swim platform add to her ability to sail easily with minimum crew. The mast & boom are painted black, with Harken battcars and Quantum sail package.

This is a superb opportunity to own a VERY recent model Grand Soleil 52LC Sport, in excellent condition.

Owner’s Comments

The owner is a very experienced sailor – from crossing the Atlantic, to winning the Rolex Cup, and many others Caribbean races.

I chose the Grand Soleil 52LC because of the versatility of doing both club racing and fast cruising; though we just did a couple of races, “BVI Spring Regatta” in Tortola and “Les Voiles de St Barth” in 2019, finishing 2nd place in both.

For cruising, she has the self-tacking jib, minimizing the crew work on-board and she can be sailed by two people. All the adjusting lines are below deck and the jammer and winches are next to the steering position. She has a very clean cockpit – all the ropes and lines can be stored in well-designed drawers, port and starboard. On the steering pedestals, she has control buttons for the 4 x electric winches, with fast and slow options.

The yacht cruised the Windward Islands from PR to St Martin, Anguilla and of course, the Virgin Islands USA, and British, just for two seasons – 2018 and 2019. For the pandemic year, 2020, she was ashore in Pto. Del Rey Boatyard.

We were in the middle of trade winds most the time – coming from the east, so we have a lot of upwind sailing experience. The yacht performed extraordinarily well, doing 7.5/8 knots at 35°/40°. She is a very stiff yacht & likes a lot of wind – with full main and the 97% jib, the wind can increase up to 30 knots before using the 1st reef.

Down below, she has a super layout. In the main cabin, I changed the sofa for seven drawers and two hanging closets. She has two twin aft cabins, with single beds, that can be convert into doubles, if needed. The main saloon has a dining table for 8 people that can be converted into a coffee table for entertaining.

With the watermaker – Spectra MKII, and the Panda 1000i generator, you can be self-sufficient for many weeks. You just need good weather and some diesel. She is a super sexy yacht with a charming Italian style.
