Jeanneau Sun 2000

The Jeanneau Sun 2000 is a very smart, lifting-keel trailer sailer. She has a displacement of 1170 kilograms and an overall length of 21’ 9”. This particular boat* is a ‘comfort’ version and she’s recently been re-sprayed. Here is a description of her interior by the broker, Clarke and Carter at Burnham-on-Crouch:

Four berths with sitting headroom. Comfort version. The cabin consists of two saloon berths (6' 7" long) with stowage beneath either side of a removable table. Forward are two galley areas to port and starboard fitted with a sink with manually pumped water supply and water tank with removable single burner gas cooker opposite. The forepeak has a double berth (6' 3" long) with space for a chemical toilet and storage beneath. Light and ventilation are provided by a circular fore hatch, two opening portlights and two adjustable spotlights. Teak fit out with teak veneer sole boards, green velour upholstery and light vinyl fabric hull linings throughout.

Here’s what the broker says of her construction:

Jeanneau Sun 2000 Comfort built by Jeanneau, France in 2002. Green GRP hull (professionally resprayed in August 2014) with style stripes. Self draining cockpit. Port and starboard cockit lockers. Tiller steering to removable and lifting rudder (new frame and bushes 2014). Bow roller. Self draining anchor locker. Aluminium and teak toe rails. Lifting GRP keel with Spinlock clutch in cockpit.

A few thoughts:

She’ll have a lively performance, and she’ll be a good club racer. With a crew of two, who know what they are doing, she’ll be great for coastal cruising. Upkeep will be minimal, and if she is kept at home, the expense of mooring her in a marina can be avoided.

This is a really nice little trailerable performance sailor. Probably because of the size and the colour she reminds me of the late Charles Stocks' little 'Shoal Waters' despite the fact that they are completely different little vessels.

You could indeed do similar estuary sailing to that of Charles with a Jeanneau Sun 2000. In fact, because of her better perfomance than 'Shoal Waters', you could do such sailing in less time, giving you more opportunities for seeing places you visit.
