Yacht description

The mythical Grand Soleil 34 is a true legend: designed by Finot in the 1970s, has remained in production until the 1980's, with over 300 hulls made. Today, past and future meet in this restyling, based on the same concept as a small-big boat. Forms are more modern, enhance performance and spaces, without sacrificing comfort and quality materials. The interior layout is divided in two cabins; a large portside aft cabin and an owner cabin in the bow that can be transformed into a sail locker during race. Astern, on the starboard side there’s a very spacey and high head and behind a wide storage cabin.

 

The Grand Soleil 34 is optimized for ORC and IRC racing, and is a very competitive club racer.

 

Features

  • Standard Single rudder or optional Twin rudders

  • Standard tiller or optional double wheels

  • Hull structure made with unidirectional and biaxial fabrics and carbon reinforcements, all laminated internally to the hull

  • Standard stainless steel IRC keel blade with lead bulb, draft 7′, optional Shallow Keel option

  • IRC and ORC optimization options

  • Volvo Penta D1 20-18 hp engine with Saildrive


COMFORT & PERFORMANCE

The GS34 is aimed at owners who love fun, sportive cruising and offshore racing, and was inspired by the open ocean boats. Great attention was put in the design and naval architecture process in order to create an offshore racing boat that is easy to sail at maximum performance but at the same time a very comfortable fast cruiser. The new GS 34 Performance was designed for IRC handicap rating in offshore race and for ORC with an optimized sail plan and appendages. In this way the boat can be competitive in both offshore and inshore International regulations and with a great rating handicap.

MADE TO WIN

The hull geometry and appendages are the result of numerous Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and statistical analysis using Velocity Prediction Programs (VPP) compared with various rating systems. These analysis has lead into a new generation of hull with a medium light displacement for an optimal ratio between the different rating systems and between performance and sportive cruising.

General

Construction

The hull and deck are built in GRP sandwich using PVC foam of different densities; it consists of E-glass biaxial and unidirectional reinforcements impregnated with vinylester resin inside a female industrial mold. Hull and deck are finished in gelcoat. The deck is with antiskid. The
main bulkheads are made in composite materials and all the bulkheads are laminated to the hull.

Hull

The hull geometry and appendages are the result of numerous Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and statistical analysis using Velocity Prediction Programs (VPP) compared with various rating systems. These analysis has lead into a new generation of hull with a medium light displacement for an optimal ratio between the different rating systems and between performance and sportive cruising.
The particular geometry of the GS34 hull allows to have very powerful waterlines, hard-chine and a wide transom, which benefit sailing downwind and when heeling. The wide stern ensures a great stability of form while providing a bigger space in the cockpit and inside.


Keel and rudder

The typical IRC fin shaped keel with a total draft of 2.18 mt is made of lead with steel and casting iron and weights between 40% to 45% of the displacement, depending on the owner’s need. The weight remains in the lower zone by moving the center of gravity of the keel as low as possible.


The twin rudders are a suitable choice for this type of vessel and for the IRC rating system, while the tilted axes allow always an effective helming and easy sailing.

Rigging

  • The mast is made of aluminum with high performance tapered profile 9/10 fractional rig, with two sweepback spreaders in order to maximize jib roach, and a 9/10 forestay.
  • The standing rigging are attached to the shrouds chain plates which are located in the max hull beam, which allow to mount a Jib (from 28 to 32 square meters) with a minimum overlap.
  • Dyform rigging
  • Dyneema backstay
  • Tuff luff

Accommodations

The interior layout is divided in two cabins; a large portside aft cabin and an owner cabin in the bow that can be transformed into a sail locker during race.

  • Aft cabin with double bed, seat and wardrobe that can be closed off with door
  • On the starboard side there’s a very spacey and high head with toilet, shower and sink
  • Behind the head is a wide storage cabin.
  • The central dinette with a large dining table and seats can be easily transformed into extra berth during race or cruising with extra guests.
  • Double bed in forecastle
  • The chart table that can be well equipped is placed on the starboard side
  • Interiors and floorboards in oak

  • Hot and cold running water

Deck and Cockpit

The deck design of the GS 34 resumes the lines and curves that characterize the entire performance range, with long windows and wide stern that makes this Small Grand Soleil recognizable and appealing. The deck plan was studied for an easy singlehanded
sailing or shorthanded when cruising or racing.

The deck provides a steering tiller with a main sail track adjustable through a cascade, and is located towards the stern. This choice is common for those who love offshore regattas with a reduced crew.

  • Harken deckhardware
  • 2 primary winches for the Jib and Gennaker sheets are easily accessible from the helm station while the 2 halyards and maneuvers winches can be used for the
    Gennaker if necessary.
  • 2 further winches are provided for the German system recessed under deck.
  • 2x 3 stoppers
  • Tiller steering
  • Harken tracks with Genoa lead cars adjustable from the cockpit
