Re: Interesting Sailboats

paulo,

I have now heard of at least one SF3600 that is bought based on the plans alone. That person has been buying sf3200 every other year or so since out. I believe he is a dealer owner in the UK. He and another fellow seem to sail a lot of the SH/DH races in and out f the uk. This could be a hot seller for Jeanneau if as you say, a bit bigger, faster, easy to sail by one or two people. Along with a decent interior, coastal cruisers may like it.

The SF3200 does seem to have some issues being sticky in lighter airs, but get the wind up, she fly's, So hopefully since the designer owns a 3200, he has figured this out, and can design the new one to work in a broader wind range!

Marty
