Getting ready for the Hobart

Jeanneau is getting ready for the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race.

Yes, that’s right, the 70th ‘Hobart’ will see the newest racing boat from Jeanneau line up on the start line.

The brand new Jeanneau Sun Fast 3600 was launched at the recent Sydney International Boat Show and her West Australian owner has kept her in Sydney since then getting ready for this blue water classic.

With a full new instrument package from our friends at B&G, Kraken will be rearing to go on boxing day.

Last week on the harbour Kraken was being put through her paces in anticipation of the big race (photos), and this weekend she will be off on the Newcastle Bass Island Race with the CYCA.
