Sunsail adds Jeanneau to charter fleet


Sunsail announced the addition of the new Sunsail 38 to its yacht charter fleet.

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 more than 230 new yachts for the 2011-2012 sailing season.

This cruiser will be available for sailing vacations in the British Virgin Islands, starting in November.

“Sunsail continues to partner with the world’s leading designers, and developing the sporty new Sunsail 38 redefines this commitment,” Sunsail chief operating officer Cheryl Powell said. “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.”

Sunsail offers a wide choice of sailing vacations with more than 800 yachts in 30 locations worldwide.
