Sunsail has announced the addition of several new Jeanneau yachts to its UK charter fleet. The investment, worth £3.75m, will deliver 15 new Sunsail 41.0 yachts in 2020, and a further 10 yachts the following year.

Based at Port Solent in Hampshire, the new fleet will be available for charters on the UK south coast, starting in Portsmouth, Southampton, Cowes, Lymington and throughout the Solent.

The Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 410s have a modern and spacious interior. Taking inspiration from modern racing boats, they boast a full-length chine, twin rudders and a reverse bow that rises out of the water. At a total length of 12.95m, the deck construction offers 30% weight savings compared to traditional decks.

The newest members of Sunsail’s fleet will be available for charter at all major UK sailing events, including Cowes Week, Round the Island Race, Little Britain Challenge Cup and Southampton Sailing Week. The yachts will also be used at Sunsail events, cruising charters and as part of sailing school courses.

“At Sunsail we are continuously looking at ways to improve the experience for our customers and we are proud to announce the most significant investment by a charter company in the UK for the last decade,” says Simon Cross, Sunsail president.

“The acquisition of these top-quality new yachts will provide a fantastic matched fleet sailing opportunity that is fun, exciting, safe and combines comfort and luxury, unrivalled by any other charter fleet in the UK,” he adds.

“The Jeanneau Sun Odyssel 410s also feature a more efficient engine design than our current fleet, and this is another way that we are demonstrating our commitment to protecting the environment and waters in which we operate.”

Charters with the new Sunsail 41.0s will begin in March 2020.
