Sunsail is opening its first West Coast base in June in San Francisco with a new matched fleet of Sunsail First 40s.

The new destination represents the launch of a new product portfolio, which will offer competitive racing, corporate hospitality and events, team building and incentive programs, in addition to bareboat sailing vacations, skippered yacht charters and a sailing school, the company said.

With Sunsail’s new location on San Francisco Bay and the First 40 fleet, customers will have access to the events surrounding the 34th America’s Cup.

The Sunsail fleet in San Francisco will include eight new Sunsail First 40s. Built by Beneteau and designed by Farr Yacht Design, the First 40 is a “thoroughbred sailing yacht, ideal for racing, cruising and learning how to sail,” the company said.

Sunsail offers more than 800 yachts in 30 locations worldwide.
