To create this high-performance sailboat, which is to be sailed either fully crewed or short-handed, Jeanneau enlisted not one, but two renowned naval architects: Daniel Andrieu and Guillaume Verdier. The complementary nature of these two experts enables the Sun Fast 3300 to be balanced and versatile, while also delivering IRC optimized performance, racing either inshore or offshore.
The innovative hull of the Sun Fast 3300 boasts a double concave, forward and aft. These curved hollows on the centre line enable an improved distribution of dynamic pressure while limiting drag on the hull and minimizing the surface below the waterline for greater performance. The structure and shape of the keel, carefully studied on this new Sun Fast, also enable a reduction in drag and an optimized centre of gravity.
The sail plan has been designed to be large and powerful while being highly efficient and easy to handle. In a unified design, the hull features maximized buoyancy aft, so the rig has been moved aft as well. The maximum area square top main is controlled by a long traveller and twin backstays for improved upwind sailing.
The result: a light, quick, reactive Sun Fast 3300 ready to launch, spring of 2019.
Est. IRC Rating ~1.02
