Built by Jeanneau to Sunsail’s charter specification and also known as the Jeanneau 379, the new Sunsail 38 is part of Sunsail’s investment in over 230 new yachts for the 2011/2012 sailing season.
This sporty 2-cabin / 1-head cruiser will be available for sailing vacations in the British Virgin Islands beginning November 2011.
Cheryl Powell, COO of Sunsail, commented, “Sunsail continues to partner with the world’s leading designers, and developing the sporty new Sunsail 38 redefines this commitment. Designed by Marc Lombard and built by Jeanneau, this yacht builds on the success of the new generation Sunsail 41 (Jeanneau 409) ‘European Yacht of the Year,’ and offers superb ease of handling with a stylish, bright interior. We are dedicated to offering a wide range of yachts that best suit everyone’s unique vacation needs and budget; and this model is the perfect cruising platform for a small family or two couples seeking a one of a kind on-the-water vacation.”
Below deck, the Sunsail 38’s well-appointed interior features two double cabins, a spacious head with separate shower stall and ample storage throughout. The fully equipped galley to starboard features a refrigerator/freezer, propane stove/oven, microwave and double sink, while the neighboring U-shaped saloon offers comfortable seating for up to six and also converts into a double berth. Plenty of ventilation offers cooling island breezes and natural light. Additional LED lighting throughout minimizes energy consumption compared to standard lighting.
The Sunsail 38 represents the perfect balance of performance and ease of handling with a sail plan and hull design that delivers a powerful sailing experience even in light wind. With a full suite of navigational electronics, twin wheel steering and all lines led to the spacious cockpit, this yacht is a charterer’s dream and easy to sail short-handed. Enjoy water sports activities like swimming, snorkeling and kayaking with ease from the fold-down transom platform; then spend the evening entertaining alfresco style around the large cockpit table.
