Grand Soleil 50 CYRENE – as well as a recent price tumble, she gleams

June 21, 2019


Grand Soleil 50 CYRENE hatched in 2006 and with her dark blue livery and fantastic Mediterranean specification is a gleaming example of the sisterhood, drawn by German Frers and built with care in Italy.

Full specification available here – [OFF MARKET]


In this ownership, she has been much uprated and re-widgeted to provide trouble free cruising, and she is a fast and rewarding sailing yacht. Her interior is a super condition with lovely teak veneers.

These owners have cruised her extensively in the warm waters of the Mediterranean and they have a zero tolerance policy on kit that does not work and tatty, rough edges. She does not look her age.


In an earlier life, she was cruised in Northern Europe and so she is well equipped for chillier waters.

CYRENE must now be sold and as a result, we have just reduced her price to €239,000, which brings her well in line with the market place and is not such a great sum to pay for a German Frers Grand Soleil is such great shape and with such fantastic equipment levels.


This year she has had new copper coat beneath the water line and a full service programme. Other recent upgrades include –

  • New Gori propeller.
  • Full overhaul of the main engine.
  • New batteries.
  • New hot water tank.
  • Overhaul of the water maker.
  • AIS.
  • New washing machine.
  • New barbeque.
  • New mattresses.
  • Rig check.
  • Harken service of winches.
  • New sun awnings.
  • New foldable RIB.
  • New safety gear.

With air conditioning, heating and lots of other kit she is good to go.


This summer she is cruising in the Western Mediterranean. Here is her schedule from the 30th May –

  • A few days around the islands outside Naples starting on Thursday.
  • Then off to Elba and a few days, maybe a week, there.
  • Then to the strait between Corse and Sardegna and a few days there.
  • Then waiting for a Mistral to take us from Bonifacio to Menorca.
  • Then Menorca to Palma.
