For almost 50 years Grand Soleil Yachts sailing yachts have been recognized as being leaders in the racer-cruiser class, and now well-known Hong Kong company Asia Yacht Services, under the experienced hand of Sytske Kimman represents the celebrated line of Grand Soleil Yachts in Hong Kong. Asia Yacht Service is based in the Gold Coast Yacht and Country Club, where they have a range of facilities including an international marina. “It’s a natural fit,” says Kimman.
“Hong Kong hosts a very lively racing scene and also presents endless opportunities for cruising. The combination is irresistible, and Grand Soleil yachts are perfectly suited to joining in some of the very best sailing activities in Asia. We are confident that the appointment of Asia Yacht Services as the Grand Soleil dealer is going to be a great success.”
Grand Soleil has proved themselves to be very good at creating racing hulls with room inside for the cruising amenities without weighing down the boat too much. Since 1973 Grand Soleil’s in-house designers have included Jean-Marie Finot, Germán Frers, Bruce Farr, the Judel-Vrolik partnership, and Marcelino Botin, Marco Lostuzzi, and Matteo Polli: every one a name with a reputation for excellence. Impeccable construction and techniques to bring the design to reality, this is how Cantiere del Pardo creates unique yachts and experiences.
