Journalists from 11 European magazines (Badnyt in Denmark; Voile Magazine in France; Batnytt in Sweden; Fare Vela in Italy; Seilas in Norway; Swissboat Yachting in Switzerland; Waterkampioen in The Netherlands; Yacht in Germany; Yachting World in England; Yacht Revue in Austria; and Yate in Spain) voted:
The Sun Fast 3200 "European Yacht of the Year" in the category of sailboats over 10 metres.
Conceived by Andrieu Yacht Design, the Sun Fast 3200 is the product of an original, innovative design.
- Infusion technology yields a strong, lightweight boat that is particularly advantageous in the category of offshore racers, and the Sun Fast 3200 features comfortable interior design features that are not available on other race boats of this size.
- The Sun Fast 3200 is the synthesis of the one-design intended for races of equal legs in real time and the sailboat designed for fleet racing under the IRC rating system. With a level rating, the Sun Fast sailboats can race against themselves in real time and against competitors in IRC fleet racing.
This innovative concept has already seen tremendous commercial success in Europe. Case in point, more than 15 Sun Fast 3200s have already been ordered for the next Transquadra ocean race.
In 2006, the Sun Odyssey 45 was voted “European Yacht of the Year 2006” in the category of sailboats from 12 to 14 metres.
