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 bring you the details revealed so far which will be updated as and when we have more, together with some early images from her initial sea trials and when Nigel tried her out at the Sunfast Cup at Quiberon along with Figaro sailor Henry Bombey and Olympic sailor Hannah Diamond. We will bring you more images as they become available.

 

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.
