Greg Stewart—the naval architect of our BOTY panel—specializes in underwater appendages and knows balance when he feels it.
“What impressed me most was the upwind sailing,” he says. “The balanced ends were really nice. It’s not excessively wide in the back, but the biggest thing is all the volume forward. It’s comfortable to hike and all that tumblehome gives you a lot of interior volume and buoyancy when you press the boat hard. It’s a fun and lively boat to sail.”
With 2 x Sun Fast 3300’s already in production and on the way to Sandringham Yacht Club early next year, it won’t be long before we have the first one-design double handed fleet racing in Australia, but with an IRC rating of around 1.030, these boats will also give fully crewed inshore and offshore race boats a run for their money too.
