Comet 31

And from Italy some news: The GrandSoleil 39 is a big sales success: On just some months they have sold almost 40 boats. If we join that success with the success of the Salona 38 it seems that this type of boat is responding to what a significant amount of sailors want: A medium sized strong light fast all around performer with a nice cruising interior, a boat that will not make bad figure on a club race and that can even be ordered in a racing specification for top level racing even if fast cruising was the main goal in what regards design criteria.

Another new and smaller one that can meet this criteria is the Comet 31, a boat full of interesting solutions, and certainly a fast one. Take a look at a movie from a recent test:

Not to much wind and the max speed obtained was 7.7K. Not bad for a 31ft
