Grabau International is delighted to announce the price reduction of the 1995 Grand Soleil 45 ‘RELENTLESS’.
Beautifully built German Frers designed Grand Soleil 45 launched in 1995. Huge bluewater specification coupled with versatile, three-cabin, two-heads interior layout. An iconic design and capable of everything from crossing oceans to sailing around the cans.
FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:
RELENTLESS is a very smart, late example of the highly-regarding German-Frers era Grand Soleil 45. Built to an extremely high standard, these evergreen ocean cruising yachts have proven themselves to be very popular amongst the bluewater fraternity, attracted by the high build quality, safe and predictable sea-keeping and generous performance under sail.
RELENTLESS was purchased by her current owner in 2011 and has since undergone a program of refit and upgrades to prepare her for long-distance and liveaboard sailing. Her specification highlights include:- • Tek-Deck synthetic teak decking – 2017 • Schenker watermaker • Solar panels • Wind generator • Towable generator • Vetus bowthruster • 3-bladed MaxProp feathering propeller • Harken electric primary winches • Slab-reefing mainsail with fully-battened mainsail, stackpack and lazyjacks • Removable inner forestay with staysail and checkstays • Symmetric spinnaker with snuffer • Raymarine electronics package with radar and plotters • Class B AIS • Furuno Navtex • Satellite phone antenna • Wi-Fi booster • Recently replaced battery banks • Three cabin interior layout with converting saloon settee to offer up to 8 berths • Two heads • Tender and outboard • Liferaft and safety equipment
Now lying ashore in Trogir, Croatia, British-Registered and EU VAT-paid, RELENTLESS if offered for sale as her owner wishes to move to a larger Grand Soleil.
Between the years of 2005 and 2011, amongst other boats, I sailed extensively on a friend’s Grand Soleil 45. During this time, I was totally ‘blown away’ by quality of build, performance and spacious owner’s quarters, aboard this German Frers designed boat, which shares many similarities in terms of build, design and finish with a Nautor Swan of the same era.
Consequently, in July 2011 I purchased my own GS45 from an English gentleman who berthed RELENTLESS in Kinsale, Co Cork, making me her fourth owner. In July 2011 I sailed her back to Portsmouth and undertook the task of equipping her ready for longer ocean passages. This process of replacement and upgrading has continued over the years, and during this time, she has been maintained regardless of cost.
In 2012 we sailed to the Mediterranean, 2013 to the Canaries, 2014 to the Caribbean for extensive cruising, 2016 ARC Europe, 2017 the Canaries, 2018 back to Mediterranean via Madeira and then to Barcelona, Balearics, Sardinia, Sicily, Malta, Italy and to Croatia in October 2019 where she is currently berthed.
RELENTLESS is an extremely strong and stable vessel and in rough conditions will always give the crew a feeling of safety and security. She is a fast sailer and fully equipped for ocean passages.
I will reluctantly sell RELENTLESS in order to purchase a larger Grand Soleil to continue sailing with more of our family able to join us, on board, for our future travels.
