Buying Jeanneau Sun Fast 32i

I am looking for some input from anyone who either owns or sails either Sun Odyssey 32 or, preferrably, Sun Fast 32i (I know that it is a new boat in the US, but not in Europe). I am interested in pricing, quality, and sailing and racing characteristics. Thanks.

a few tips about sun fast 32i

I own a sun fast 32i and have been racing with her for the past one year in İstanbul. She has an amazing downwind performance both with a spinnaker and a jinneker however it may be said that i had problems with the upwind performance. Above 25 knots of wind there appears to be a problem with the sail sizes. At the time i bought the boat she had furling system which i still use. In the conditions where there is a significant change in the wind conditions the genoa never fits well with the wind conditions. Now i have ordered the new sail and we will see the difference it makes. Besides the racing part the interior of the boat is perfect for trips nad family sailing. To sum up i may say that it was a perfect decision for me

Basak-

It is likely that they don't really care anymore, since the post you're replying to is OVER FIVE YEARS OLD. Please check dates on posts prior to replying. Also, would recommend you read the POST in my signature. Welcome to the asylum.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

3's do look an awful lot like 8's if you need glasses and aren't wearing them.
