This highly well prepared version of the Grand Soleil 50, really is the epitome of what a cruiser racer should be.
"Lady First" has been a regular on the ROLEX and RORC calendar, as well as offering the owner ample cruising comfort in the quieter months, these boats are simply a fantastic all rounder.
This version is the 3 cabin/2 heads layout and one of the best we have seen for some time.
The additional "race" specification is also something to behold with carbon detail and the appropriate hardware throughout, really gives her a racing edge.
