Welcome to the NEW Jeanneau Sunfast 3300. A new Sun Fast is born. She is an innovative collaborative design between two top French designers, Daniel Andrieu and Guillaume Verdier that has produced a state of the art all round racing machine. here we can bring you the details revealed so far which will be updated as and when we have more. The first Sun Fast 330's will hit the water in Spring 2019

Here is a distillation of the data released on the 8th December by Jeanneau at the Paris Boat Show launch:

Two Renowned Naval Architects

Jeanneau turned to two renowned naval architects:  Daniel Andrieu and Guillaume Verdier to create this high-performance sailboat, which is to be sailed either fully crewed or short handed

Daniel Andrieu, the naval architect behind the Sun Fast line since its inception, is a proven expert in optimizing for the IRC rating rule, as well as working with the Jeanneau builders to deliver boats of exceptional quality which Jeanneau customers expect. Guillaume Verdier, who is renowned for his work in the America’s Cup and Vendee Globe, will bring a mastery of computational fluid dynamics and finite element analysis to this project, just as he has in the past with other high performance boats, such as the 100’ Commanche and the IMOCA 60 Hugo Boss.

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. You can listen to their thinking behind this project in the video below

From a Curved Line, Performance

The innovative hull of the Sun Fast 3300 has a double concave, forward and aft.

These curved hollows on the center 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 center of gravity.

The result:  a light, quick, reactive Sun Fast 3300 that will be a sure winner.

Handling, Effectiveness and Architectural Unity

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.

SEE WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY

Dear Mr. Colley We have recently purchased from Sea Ventures a new Jeanneau NC11 (‘Miss Conduct’) and are writing to commend your Jeanneau Powerboat Manager, Chris Atterton, who has given us truly exemplary service throughout the process. This is our very first boat and therefore, at our age (we are both in our mid-60’s), quite a nerve-wracking experience! Chris is a considerate and thoughtful person and evidently cares a great deal about his customers, not just during the buying process but as regards after sales service too. He has held our hands all the way from our first expression of interest back in early 2015 and nothing has been too much trouble for him. There are one or two very minor criticisms we have about the boat itself which the manufacturers might care to hear about and improve upon but we are certain we have made the right choice for us and we are looking forward to several years of happy boating. We cannot praise Chris highly enough and would be pleased if you would pass on our message of gratitude to him for all his help. Yours sincerely,
- David A (NC11 New Boat)
