THE SUN FAST 3600 HAS BEEN NAMED IRC BOAT OF THE YEAR 2016

Sun Fast 3600 Boat of the Year

 

Nov 13, 2016

The Sun Fast 3600 has just been named IRC Boat of the Year by the UNCL, “Union Nationale pour la Course au Large,” which assembles a jury composed of journalists from the marine press (Couse au Large, Voiles et Voiliers, Voile Magazine, Seahorse Magazine).

This distinction compliments a season already rich in first places and trophies.

This year, in France, the Sun Fast 3600 has been distinguished by the SNIM, the Porquerolles Race Week, the Giraglia Rolex Cup, as well as the “ChampionnatMéditerranée Equipage” IRC-UNCL 2016 in IRC3. The Sun Fast 3600 has also dominated the podiums in the United Kingdom, in Italy and in New Zealand!

This honour once again affirms the remarkable collaborative work of the Jeanneau team and Andrieu Yacht Design, the designer of the boat. Developed for regattas, the Sun Fast 3600 has lived up to its reputation, proving over the years that its presence has become essential!

The entire Jeanneau crew is very proud of this IRC Boat of the Year title, and we look forward to seeing you at upcoming challenges in 2017!

Even in the event of an onboard power failure, a Ritchie Navigation SuperSport Helmsman SS-1002 magnetic compass still works.
