Broker's Comments

Boatshed Plymouth are pleased to offer this Jeanneau Sunshine 38 for sale.
The 38 Sunshine is a Jeanneau 36 with a stern scoop added to increase her water line length and aesthetics. This model has a swim / dinghy loading platform, whilst on later models the stern scoop was enclosed to become the Jeanneau 38.
This example from Jeanneau is in great condition and is set up for some serious racing / cruising. She has a current RORC Cat 2 Regulation certificate and the current owner has used her twice in the Fastnet race. She is also set up for short or single handed racing. Maintained to the highest standard there are lots of new and updated elements to this boat, making her seem younger than her build and design age.
The interior is comfortable with new upholstery and she can sleep 8 in proper berths. Her wide beam giving lots of space below.
This boat will be equally happy entering competitive regattas or going on family coastal cruising. She is worth a look.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
