2006 Jeanneau Sun 2500

Waldringfield, United Kingdom


This is a very good example of the ever popular Jeanneau Sun 2500.  He current owner has conducted a comprehensive refit 2021/2 including new standing rigging, new rudder bearings and whole system overhauled, new marine toilet installation, antifoul stripped to bare gel and new applied, new autopilot and much more. Her lifting keel and twin rudders give an excellent sailing performance and allows her to dry out like a bilge keeler. She is a turn key boat and must be viewed to be appreciated.
