Our Product Line: Three ranges for cruisers.

Grand Large (GL): Culturally translated, “Grand Large” means “Open Ocean” or “Endless Possibilities”, a true expression of our design philosophy. The concept of our brand has always been to produce a comfortable cruising boat with exceptional sailing characteristics, allowing our customers to experience the “Endless Possibilities” of the open sea. A range of design and construction features allow us to deliver a cruising yacht with outstanding speed and maneuverability, easy handling for small crews and all the comforts of home both above and below deck. On board you’ll immediately notice the wide beam allowing for a voluminous interior with plenty of storage capacity. The spacious and versatile cockpit will comfortably hold a full crew without restricting access. The cabintop travelers provide a full range of mainsail adjustment without restricting canvas choices, and the cockpit winches are mounted within easy reach of the helm station. The “L” shaped high volume bulb keel and robust construction methods ensure stability and strength for those long distance offshore passages. A wide range of comfort amenities guarantee a great time both underway and in port. Current Models: 310, 360, 382, 412, 460, 520 Explore the full range of GL models from our main website.
