Sun Fast 26
Deep draft

The Sun Fast 26 is the sporting version of the Sun Odyssey 26. She is equipped with a larger sail plan and hardware more efficient, the main upgrade is an asymmetrical spinnaker on bowsprit. She also uses a deeper bulb keel. Inside everything is identical to Sun Odyssey we can found particularly aft cabin with its large transverse bed.

Hull forms made for planning and twin rudders make it stable and efficient downwind, but the weight is that of a cruise boat prevent her planning by reasonable wind.
