Cool boat...Dumb name

The 39.5m carbon fibre hull for SY Sunshine, a Trip 128 lifting keel sloop was shipped from Green Marine in Southampton to Vitter’s in Holland earlier this month by Complete Freight. The hull was floated off her cradles in high water on the Itchen and tugged around to a small coastal vessel where she was loaded direct from the water into the ships hold with 2 cranes. On arriving into Kampen the hull was loaded to a barge for transport up the canals to Vitters.
