All main European boat magazines are testing those boats that are nominated for the European boat of the year, those comments come from the Guys from Seilas, the Norse magazine and even if the google translation is a bit funny, it seems that they were really impressed with the Pogo 12.50.

But as I have said that is a "funny" translation: It appears the word pretentious in what regards the Grand Soleil 50 and I am quite sure that is not the right translation. The boat is not pretentious, is just much more luxurious than the Xp 44 and almost as fast and as they say, less of a racer and more of a performance cruiser and a very good one. In fact, the title should be translated as "Fantastic sharp sailboats" and that means all of them: J/111, Xp44, Grand Soleil 50 and Pogo 12.50
