Love my Grand Soleil 52

Hi just my 25 cents worth of it..
I have a Grand Soleil 52 that is really the same boat as a Swan 53 only a slightly smarter interior layout and a dramatically lower pricetag.

Sails like a charm with plenty of speed but with enough deplacement to have that nice comforting and gracefull movment.

We have an electric furler for the genua and that is just fantastic!!

The main is fullybattened with lazyjacks and a lazybag. Works just fantastically easy and since the Simrad autopilot is really cooperative I do sail the lady by my self from time to time.

Al ok as long as you do not have to do tight manouvering in small harbours.
