Jeanneau Sun 2000
The Jeanneau Sun 2000 is a safe and sturdy small yacht. She's made of fibreglass & has a centreboard type swing keel and lifting rudder. This is important in Morecambe Bay because when the tide goes out, the boat sits down on the sand.
Tiller steering and a light, sensitive balance make the Jeanneau 2000 an ideal sailboat for adult beginners & improvers. There's a spacious self-draining cockpit with room for four students and an instructor.
