Jeanneau, official supplier of Dongfeng Race Team, racing for China in the Volvo Ocean Race 2014-2015 has received two Sun Fast 3200 race boats. Team Director Bruno Dubois highlighted the initial focus of the campaign. “Our priority is the recruitment and training of the Chinese sailors. This is very clearly the biggest challenge we have – to condense many years of experience of the average Volvo Ocean Race crew into just 10 months”. For this, they needed an offshore training fleet that could put the crew through their paces and the Sun Fast 3200 has fitted this role perfectly.
The SF3200 was awarded ‘Best Sailing Yacht’ in the category for yachts up to 45ft at the Asian Marine and Boating Awards 2014 and was previously European Yacht of the Year. At a special offer price of $179,000 these yachts are sensational value, or PBS have two second-hand examples available and ready to go.
