FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:
Launched in April 2007 and still under the first ownership, Mr. Twister is surely one of the best Judel Vrolijk design Grand Soleil 50 today on the market as her owner take a great care of the boat with the yard looking after the boat for all the winter.
Mr. Twister was always lightly used as a cruiser yacht from his first and only owner with his family and is now ready for new advertures.
Her specification highlights are numerous, but particular highlights include:- • 3-cabin, 2-head owner’s layout • Larger 75hp Volvo engine option with saildrive and recent diaphragm replacement • Recently re-painted • Carbon fibre pole and deck gear • Fully-battened mainsail with ball-bearing battencars, single-line reefing and lazyjacks • Flex-o-fold feathering prop • Retractable bowthruster • Twin alternators, upgraded battery capacity and inverter • Webasto diesel heating system • Mastervolt 3,5 generator • Nobeltec instrument package including digital radar & plotters • Satellite TV
Designed by Rolf Vrolijk, and it shares the same heritage of this designer, who has proven his ability to delineate and reaffirm the success of Alinghi in the last two editions of the America’s Cup. Grand Soleil 50’ is a consecration of the design on which it was built, aimed at limiting wave-resistance at sea and at defining significant shape stability in order to achieve the ideal angle of balance and consistently safe and comfortable sailing.
SUCCESSFUL CHOICES – In terms of design solutions, the sail area includes a high-extension spanker and a low-overlap genoa jib, so as to allow for easy and intuitive sailing in all conditions, even with a short crew. The spacious and user-friendly cockpit is designed to suit both cruise and regatta use. The main sheet at the end of the boom ensures the best possible control for regatta use, whilst the halyard runs below deck, the short deckhouse and the garage hood make for a clear, obstacle-free deck, and ensure that all rigging movements can be carried out freely and rapidly.
SEA-AFFINITY. ENOUGH SAID – There is perhaps no greater or more desirable quality in a boat, and yet, when you try Grand Soleil 50’, you will recognise it instantly and naturally. This boat is truly made for the sea, tireless, handling races or cruises, the longer the better, in the heart of the habitat that Grand Soleil 50’ was made for, and where it is truly in its element. Above deck, the double wheelhouse opens out the cockpit and provides for a direct passageway to the transom, where the electrical opening-system facilitates easy and immediate access to the sea.
HIGH-CLASS LIVING – Dimensions and design choices make the Grand Soleil 50’ an extremely agreeable boat, particularly well-suited for hosting guests and families, thanks to its spacious rooms and decks.
SPEED MEETS RELAXATION – Below deck, the sporty life gives way to a cosy and welcoming atmosphere, distinctly elegant and refined, down to the smallest detail, as befits the finest Grand Soleil tradition.
We wish her new owners fair winds and following seas.
