We are proud that the Barton Boomstrut is part of the standard specification on the Sun Fast 3200, which was recently named "European Yacht of the Year 2008".
Providing fast response and a near constant force, the Boomstrut effortlessly supports the boom so that it will never accidentally fall onto its deck. The Boomstrut's two glass fibre rods support the boom at all times, preventing the boom from lifting or falling in light downwind conditions and providing exceptional stability and control upwind.
The Sun Fast 3200 is Jeanneau's brand new rising star. After winning the prize for innovation in 2007, awarded by the German magazine Segeln, the Jeanneau race boat now has been named "European Yacht of the Year 2008" by a jury of European journalists!
Congratulations to Jeanneau in receiving the honour on 19th January 2008 at the largest European boat show, in Düsseldorf, Germany. Journalists from 11 European magazines 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.
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.
