2017 : THE NEW GENERATION OF THE SUN FAST 3200 R2 VERSION
In addition to the standard Sun Fast 3200 you can also buy an SF3200 in the new R2 version. This has three new features to appeal to the high-end sailboat racer: an open cockpit, a carbon mast and a straight keel. These three developments ensure gains in speed, fluidity and ergonomics.
Ideal for crewed racing, the Sun Fast 3200 R2 version has already proved itself with two first podium places in the Spi-Ouest-France (Cifraline 4 and JP Concepts – Bois Energie Oest). The new open cockpit option facilitates movement about the deck, the life raft locker has been replaced by an under-cockpit floor locker. The mainsheet track can now be positioned over the life raft. Raised footrests enhance comfort and security for helmsman and trimmers. The backstay adjustment has moved to the boat’s centreline.
A kit version of this new cockpit is also available for owners of existing Sun Fasts. The cockpit is simply removed and replaced by the new kit. Optional parts can be installed directly by the owner or by Sea Ventures.
The optional carbon mast is over 40 centimetres taller, for a lighter, more powerful boat. This high-quality material lowers the centre of gravity in the boat for greater speed and better performance. Combine this with the optional new straight keel, and the result is sensational as this new keel allows, notably, an optimised IRC rating, as well as reduced drag.
So many clever solutions for crewed inshore racing! Including one or two interior enhancements drawn from the successful SF3600 for more crew comfort.
What our customers say
Great to meet up with you and Rob again yesterday. It seems like only a week ago that we first met at the London Boat show in January. The nicest thing for me there was never any pressure to sign on the dotted line there and then to get the good deal even though I had already fallen in love with the Merry Fisher 895. When finally I made my mind up about 3 weeks later the deal was the same. Being able to come down to Swanwick with my wife to see the equivalent boat really helped her come to terms with the fact that her husband was not totally mad, she was then in the same ether as I was. The 2 other visits to see my boat being put together kept the excitement going till finally yesterday coming down for the handover.
What a day seeing the finished boat, the final little bit of paperwork, then onboard with Rob. Even with a bad back he went through every item on the boat from stem to stern. A couple of hour later and several coffees we set off for Port Solent, I was given the helm and put through several manoeuvres to make sure I got the feel of my new boat, then out into the Solent and to home port, what a day.
Many thanks for the photographs they are great, will no doubt give you a call next week with one or two questions, meantime all at Sea Ventures have a good weekend, I will.
