A brand new project of design and innovation: The Grand Soleil 72 Performance.

The extensive construction experience of the Forlì-based shipyard is combined with the development of innovative solutions, that place increasing emphasis on sustainability and energy efficiency, to create the Grand Soleil 72 Performance. A completely Made in Italy design process developed according to the needs of those owners who appreciate a made-to-measure approach, to live their adventures in comfort, safety, and autonomy in the utmost respect of the marine habitat. A yacht with a modern and elegant design and high comfort ergonomics, both on deck and inside.

A team of Italian professionals

The 72-footer will be the result of a completely new and Made in Italy design process, with a team of professionals representing Italian excellence in the international nautical sector. The creation of the new yacht will be supervised by project manager Franco Corazza, Matteo Polli has been in charge of naval architecture, Marco Lostuzzi worked on the structures and Nauta Design designed the general layout, the deck and the interiors.

Sustainability and Design

The Grand Soleil 72 Performance, like all Cantiere del Pardo yachts, strives for a responsible and sustainable goal for the marine environment in which it will sail. Both the choice of construction materials and the design used to assemble them aim at the lowest environmental impact and the highest degree of recyclability. The layout of the interiors, according to Nauta's customary and acclaimed penmanship, is in perfect harmony with the geometry of the deck. Nauta has conceived, designed and refined every volume and every small detail of both deck and interiors in order to optimize all spaces and obtain a coherent, holistic interaction between exteriors and interiors. In the interiors, size, ergonomics, stowage, functions and quality of all fittings are set to super yacht standards. The design and the various palettes of the materials characterize the interiors with a sober, fresh, elegant and welcoming style.
