THE GRAND SOLEIL BLUE

THE GRAND SOLEIL BLUE

BLUE, FOR A GREENER FUTURE


The Grand Soleil BLUE, the Grand Soleil 33 feet Daysailer Zero Impact project is a 10 meter sailing boat, a true jewel born from the belief that the initial stride towards sustainability is grounded in quality, ensuring the longevity of the product.


An embodiment of creative collaboration between nautical experts such as Matteo Polli (Naval Architecture) and Nauta Design (Exterior Design, Interior Design and G.A.) and pioneers in sustainable materials like NL Comp, this yacht represents a new chapter in the history of boating where sustainability, efficiency and design come together to create a “bluer” future at sea.


This principle has been the guiding force shaping every facet of the design process. The outcome is a remarkably innovative and stylish weekender, capable of hosting up to four guests overnight, boasting both zero environmental impact during sailing and complete recyclability at the culmination of its life cycle.


PIONEERING DESIGN UNVEILED

How this has been achieved? By pursing several groundbreaking design and construction methodologies:

  1. 1. Sustainable construction
    The Grand Soleil BLUE marks a turning point in boat construction by employing thermoplastic resin, a choice that addresses one of the most significant problems in the marine sector: end-of-life recycling. Traditionally, composite boats have been built using thermosetting resins, which are very difficult if not impossible to recycle. Thermoplastic resin, on the other hand, allows for easier separation of the resin and glass or carbon fibres for re-use or eco-responsible disposal.


  2. 2. Design for disassembly
    A smart design approach allows easy separation of boat accessories and components, similar to end-of-life practices in the automotive industry. This critical process ensures that every part of the Grand Soleil BLUE can be effectively disassembled and recycled, minimizing environmental impact.


  3. 3. Electric propulsion
    The Grand Soleil BLUE will feature a lithium battery bank and electric propulsion for zero-emission navigation, contributing to a more sustainable future by reducing emissions.


  4. 4. Solar panels
    The installation of solar panels provides renewable energy autonomy by recharging the battery bank feeding the electric motor. The Grand Soleil BLUE will have an impressive autonomy, with the standard battery pack enabling a range of 30 nautical miles at approximately 5 knots, translating to 6 hours of continuous engine operation or 12 hours with the dual battery pack.

  5. 5. Thermoplastic sails
    Aligning with the project’s sustainable philosophy, the sails are crafted from thermoplastic materials, underscoring the commitment to minimizing environmental impact.

  6. 6. Hydrogeneration
    During sailing, the Grand Soleil BLUE skillfully recharging its batteries as the propeller spins in response to the water flow generated by the boat’s speed.
