In the range of boats of choice for French shipyards (the units of which are produced in Poland), Sunny is already one of the large. Admittedly there is an abundance of models (twenty-three to be exact), but within a niche of somewhat limited size, between 5 and 7 metres, with a variety of deck layouts: from opening to sun deck in passing through the helmsman .
The Sunny is a fairly typical sundeck that the bow of the deck offers both a beautiful cabin, with a berth over two meters long, and a large triangular solarium accessible through the port’s only bypass.
It also introduces original ideas, such as the reversible rear bench that forms a reclining chair next to the engine. For this test, the Sunny 640 SD was equipped with a large 150 horsepower Mercury 3-liter. The shipyard offers 115 hp as the recommended power, but for us 150 hp is the right mass for this hull, which is maxed out at 35 knots with two people on board; The economical cruising speed fluctuates between 18 and 23 knots and is charted in 6 seconds 40.
Why not 175 horsepower?
Speed enthusiasts who want a more sporty figure can get 175 horsepower without hesitation. The Sunny proves to be easy to steer, with an overall healthy and safe demeanor, especially in the bends. The clip in the seal is good. We simply observe the phenomenon of rhythmic tone in a straight line at cruising speed, which is not always easy to erase with ornament.
So you will have to be very meticulous about the distribution of loads on the board, the choice of speed and the adjustment of the trim. The cockpit is deep and protective and will fit the family crew with young children. Teak style laminate flooring looks a bit dated, but it adds aesthetic value compared to the raw gel coat.
The stainless steel bow at the back (optional) will allow pulling sports, such as skateboarding or floats. The central pilot and co-pilot seats had to be replaced with a more modern inclined post.
A modest, well-appointed sun deck is an interesting option for embarking on yachting, with a program of small coastal cruises and water sports. Its large cabin and front solarium are its main assets.
