Sunsail welcomes its new £3.75m UK charter fleet to Portsmouth Harbour

Sunsail has officially welcomed the first of its brand new Jeanneau yachts to its UK charter fleet. The investment, worth £3.75m, will deliver 15 new Sunsail 41.0 yachts, with a further 10 yachts arriving next year.

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

A naming ceremony was held for two of the charity yacht sponsors, The Magenta Project and Breathe Oceanic. Sunsail also announced two new yacht sponsors, Hyde Sails and Southampton Sailing Week, who will join The Magenta Project, Breathe Oceanic, Raymarine, The, Opihr Gin, and the BVI Tourist Board.

“We are delighted to become part of the wider family of Sunsail. We look forward to exciting times creating more opportunity for women in our sport, from novices learning to sail right through to training as Yachtmaster instructors and racing in some of the most competitive regattas in the world,” says Elaine Penhaul, chair of The Magenta Project.
