But as the Sun Fast 36 celebrates its ninth birthday this August, Jeanneau have moved on and now introduce their latest model in this size and style, the new Jeanneau Sun Fast 37. Sunsail have clearly decided that it’s time to move on, too, and have ordered 40 of the new boats, which will be direct replacements for the 36s from spring 2002.Are Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 37 and sun fast 37 cruisers still popular?
Rupert Holmes looks back to the late 1990s at the still popular Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 37 and Sun Fast 37 cruisers. The Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 37 is a popular and spacious family cruiser that was also offered in a more performance-oriented guise, as the Sun Fast 37.Which is better the sun fast 37 or the Sun Odyssey?
However, the Sun Fast 37 offers those who value extra speed, a boat with excellent accommodation and better performance than the Sun Odyssey. Jeanneau’s Sun Odyssey range of high volume cruising yachts is one of the most comprehensive from any builder and spanned models from 29-54ft during the time the 37 was in production.Why choose a Jacques Fauroux 37-footer?
This Jacques Fauroux designed 37-footer helped to set new standards in accommodation in cruising boats of this size when it was first launched at the very end of the 1990s. In addition, it also provided reasonable sailing performance, especially in the Sun Fast version, which offered a deep bulb keel with a draught of 2.07m allied to a larger rig.
