Solaris yachts are unique. They are sleek, streamlined and their solid structure is brand-defining. With impressive sail plans, and guaranteed ease of sailing, their performance is exceptional; you can rely on a Solaris yacht to reach impressive speeds in light airs due to their ability to point high to windward, but they can equally hold their own in tougher conditions – and look awesome doing it. Due to the location of their HQ being right on the water, most yachts are sea trialled from build – which is one of the most vital cogs in the impressive Solaris machine. Their unique construction means they are capable of silent sailing down below with no creaking, achieved in part by laminating the bulkheads and joinery to the hull, and most importantly to the deck. This in turn means there is no need for inner mouldings, structural fillers and silicone. Their construction makes them almost impervious to the ravages of the wind and the sea, making them the ultimate long-lasting performance cruising yacht.
Solaris 37 – The all-important range entry model. Two characteristics shine on this boat, firstly, it has a deceptively spacious interior more like that of a 42’ cruiser-racer. Secondly, it is a little ‘ship’ solidly built using all the same technology as the larger Solaris models, yet remaining sporty and fun to sail.
Solaris 42 – Exceptionally responsive on the helm with a number racing successfully. Great interior volume and choice of layouts to suit families or short-handed couples.
Solaris 47 – Launched in 2016 and a development of the incredible Solaris 50 offering all the same features but in a more compact format. Hull no 03 will be based in the Solent … Look out for the stunning dark blue hulled EMMA KETURAH.
Solaris 50 – European Yacht of the Year 2016 (Performance Cruiser Category) and much lauded by Toby Hodges of Yachting World: “…the quality of build and finish is excellent. She has a feeling of luxury, is an absolute pleasure to helm and she has engineering to equal her looks…the Solaris 50 is a bona fide trendsetter. She is sexy, elegant and sophisticated, and, to my mind, the most stylish Mediterranean production yacht to date’.
Solaris 55 – The first Solaris with twin rudders. Debuted at this year’s Düsseldorf Boat Show and a development of the 50 but offering 3 en-suite cabins. This model completes the Solaris range and sea trials begin in April.
Solaris 58 – The first Solaris model to sport the reverse ‘dreadnought’ bow, the 58 exudes quality. Remarkably easy to sail two-handed, thanks in part to the four-winch cockpit layout (a common feature of all Solaris from 47’ upwards) with all lines lead aft below deck to the helm position.
Solaris 68 – New for 2017 with the first three hulls sold off-plan. Hull 01 will be launched in June. Owners will have the choice of single or twin rudders.
