Sailing between Liguria,Cote D’Azur, Corsica and Sardinia.
Week end of sport and active leisure, or weeks spent between navigation and landing in the most wonderful places in the Mediterranean. A professional service on a high-quality boat
Great example of the evergreen German Frers vintage Grand Soleil 45. Ageless lines, stunning build quality and great performance. They often say that 'they don't build them like they used to', and this is a classic example. Every aspect of design has been carefully considered, resulting in a faster, stiffer, stronger and higher quality yacht in all areas. Technology and deck ergonomics make this boat not only faster, but easier to manage whilst sailing short-handed.
A magnicifcantly designed and built forty five footer offering an unrivalled combination of sparkling sailing performance, beautiful lines, top build quality and luxurious accomodation. There is no other yacht in its class which can give the short-handed cruiser or top level racing enthusiast so much.
The Grand Soleil 45 represents performance, livability, seaworthiness and comfort. All this in one yacht, the result of 30 years of production for Cantiere del Pardo, always with the objective to study, explore and test under extreme conditions, construction, materials, techniques and sail plans, and transferring these to your Grand Soleil in order to simplify and ensure safe voyaging.
Imagine sailing bright, blue waters, wind in your face, absorbing the scents and sounds of faraway islands, discovering the hidden coves and the vast horizons of our 'last untamed frontier' - the wild sea.

Sardinia is a paradise for those who love the sea and the wind. L’arcipelago de la Maddalena, is a geomarine protected area consisting of 60 islands and islets scattered in the area north east of Sardinia, is the first national park island. Here you will find the most beautiful beaches of the Mediterranean, with shallow and crystal clear water! Dreamy bays, accessible only by boat. Swimming in this sea is like a daydream, where you get to know unique sensations and reach absolute relaxation.
Easier navigation can be achieved in Côte d'Azur, in the south of France, a mix of beauty and refinement, with famous places as glamorous as Monaco, Nice, Antibes, Cannes and St Tropez but also with its "Golden Isles" Porquerolles, Port Cross, Le Levant and twelve uninhabited islets. Here you will find a blue sea, clear and transparent, with a diversity of beaches ranging from white quartzite sand plage d'Argent at the brown sand beach Langoustier.
A cruise on the French Riviera is ideal for those who want to get closer to sailing, the wind is never strong and the ports are always repaired. The coast is considered a paradise for nautical tourism.
A paradise for a holiday on a sailing boat, not only during the summer months but even in spring and autumn, with its mild climate and temperature of water already good for swimming in the sea from the month of May!
What's about Corsica, the larger island in France and destination much loved by sailors.
What is certain is that sailing in Corsica is not simple. The wind often blows very strong and there are just a few scattered ports . For this reason it is important to know the more sheltered bays .
The western coast offers more bays and harbors. From Calvi to Bonifacio you have 90 miles to sail between beautiful bays , pristine beaches and breathtaking scenery. Quieter , but equally fascinating is the north coast of Corsica from Cap Corse (the famous circumnavigation of the "finger" ) via Saint Florent , the desert Agriates where you will find beautiful beaches with sand dunes that extend to the sea and ille Rousse.
Do you love sailing? Do you want to break the monotony? Do you want to take a break from the crowded beach?
Why not have a nice sail? The skipper will take you where you want, and if you are a sailor the skipper you will observe you while you will make the most of the sailing qualities of La Signora del Mare (the Lady of the Sea)!
If, however, after having sailed long you want to have a nice swim, then Balzi Rossi (Red Leaps near Mentone) is your ideal destination.
Whatever you decide to do, the day will be full: it starts early in the morning and returns to port after dark!
