Broker's Comments

The Jeanneau Sun Light 30 set the bench mark for many of the yachts that followed after it. A good number of the general arrangements that appear on this model were to become the 'standard' for years afterwards. A modern design and excellent sailing qualities, together with a very roomy interior set this boat apart from the older designs that were still in production elsewhere. This one is a well found and well cared for example.
