Fore cabin has 2 singles which, with an infill, converts to another double. Although in theory this boat can sleep seven, five would be a more sensible number. There is more than adequate amounts of storage throughout in all cabins.

A bonus is that she has been recently re-upholstered throughout.

Broker's Comments

Originally designed to meet the requirements of IOR 1/2 ton class design, this Jeanneau Sun Light 30 is a very sea kindly, well balanced sailing yacht.

Externally she looks in good condition for her age, It is fair to say that this boat is looking a little bit tired below decks. That said there is a lot of boat for the price and I believe that she does have had a lot of potential, though a significant amount of refurbishment is required, as detailed below:

Some wood panelling requires replacing and generally re-varnishing is required throughout
Headlining has been removed and requires replacing.
The engine although fully serviceable, could do with an overhaul
The aft cabin window needs replacing
Topsides, she will need to be re-rigged at some point though her running rigging has recently been replaced.

On a positive note, she appears to be structural sound though of course we would recommend a full survey.

She could be considered a project and is priced accordingly to reflect the work that is required. I believe it wouldn't take too much effort to bring this boat back up to decent spec., and could be an ideal first or second boat.

Also quite rare for a boat of this age, all the original documentation is available, including and most importantly, the original VAT receipt

If you are looking for a boat on a low budget and have the time to carry out the required work, this could be for you.

Also included in the sale is a storage cradle.

We should point out that this boat was photographed shortly after launch and hasn't yet been cleaned or polished
