IRC boat of the year in 2014 and 2016, Jeanneau’s Sunfast 3200 is a regular on the podium with excellent results in coastal as well as offshore racing. Designed with the objective of winning the Transquadra (Madeira to Martinique, short handed race) as well as placing well in crewed racing, the Sun Fast has fulfilled its objectives. Is this the next winner of French Polynesia’s Tahiti Pearl Regatta?
The Sun Fast is made to be easy to sail, with all sail handling at arm’s length the boat is simple to manoeuvre. This is a fun boat with plenty of life, more reassuring than a Mini 6.50 and without the complexity of a Class 40, at 10m LOA this is a great compromise giving both offshore security and access to round the buoys racing.
The interior is simply designed, with 2 double cabins aft and a good-sized living space, with extra bunks if needed. Perfect for local cruising with a small family or friends, and well enough equipped for ocean crossing.
Dare Dare is our choice of the moment: freshly arrived from San Francisco and in excellent condition. She was prepared for the Transpac 2018 by an expatriate French duo and local experts, so boasts: new running rigging and an excellent suite of sails including no less than 4 spinnakers, a code 5, 3 jibs … as well as all the offshore equipment necessary to make such a crossing.
Dare Dare is a rare find in French Polynesia, an IRC offshore racing boat, in great condition. If you love sailing and dream of slipping between atolls, racing the Tahiti Pearl Regatta and then doing a fast crossing to your next port of call – this is a boat for you.
