Building and history

Monolithic polyester Sun Shine 36 DL ballasted dinghy built in 1983 by Jeanneau shipyards, Les Herbiers, to designs by architect Tony Castro. She sailed from Brittany to the West Indies in 2020, then to Polynesia in 2022.
In 2019, a great deal of work was carried out. The hull was stripped bare to apply two coats of epoxy primer, two coats of interlayer and three coats of antifouling. No traces of osmosis were observed. A new daggerboard was fitted with a reinforced centreboard.
In 2022, with a view to a voyage to Polynesia, a new refit was carried out in Guadeloupe, including drying out the boat, antifouling, fitting a new rudder in epoxy-laminated CP and other extensive work. The standing rigging was inspected and found to be in good condition.
In October 2022, after the propeller shaft became bent, the boat was taken out of the water, a new propeller shaft was fitted and the antifouling was redone using International semi-erodible.
This boat has been very well maintained, and a lot of work has been carried out. She's ready to go, very well equipped and fully fuelled with the miles she's covered. It's a good compromise between good performance and habitability. No work is required.
A dry and afloat survey was carried out in September 2023.
