The Grand Soleil 40 is a superb yacht from the premium builder Cantiere del Pardo. A great all-round boat with lovely sailing characteristics. This boat is very versatile and is currently owned and cruised extensively with a young family and or the grand parents but she would be equally at home offshore or cruiser racing. "Sapphire" is currently set up to be easily sailed short handed, even the anchor can be dropped and raised from the helm via remote switch.
This boat is in great condition including the Topsides which are stunning in Awlgrip and she has an extensive, quality inventory. 8 berths with 3 double cabins rounds off a very practical and well kept boat. She will be wintering ashore at DRB Marine Services Ltd in Rosneath from 11 Oct 16.
We look forward to organising your viewing and answering any questions you may have.

A beautiful family yacht, much loved and admired. Sapphire has been extensively cruised around the West Coast of Scotland by our young family for the last 5 years. Sapphire sails extreamly well and is set up to be easily sailed single/short handed. She also comes with a full set of racing sails which have only been used by us at 4 weekend events in restricted sail class.
The electronics includes a Raymarine E Series plotter at the helm (another at the nav. station) and autopilot with wireless remote. Even the anchor can be raised and lowered from the helm via remote switch. All deck gear including winches is by Harken, which reflects the quality of the overall build. Topsides are stunning in Awlgrip (Awlcraft 2000) professional paint which is extremely easy to maintain compared to gel coat - Two washes each year, in accordance to Awlgrip care guide means she is always shining, no polish required!
Teak side decks and cockpit. Leather work to wheel and spray hood replaced 2015.
She can sleep 8 with 3 double cabins plus saloon and has Mahogany woodwork throughout with Blue upholstery.
