When the Jeanneau Sun Shine arrived in 1983, her generous beam was ahead of its time. Has she dated? Dick Durham finds out.

Her big rig and wide beam aft will mean a tendency to broach at large angles of heel and you'll need to reef early. Fans of the Jeanneau Sun Shine could strike lucky and find one for under £30,000, a snip for this size of boat. She was well-built and most hulls are sound, but at this price, her rigging and gear will almost certainly need upgrading. Be sure to factor this into the cost of purchase. Once she's shipshape, you'll have a bargain boat that ticks all the boxes for safe, fast offshore cruising.
