Jeanneau launches the Sun Loft 47 designed for Young People

10 May 2019

Jeanneau Yachts is attracting a new generation on the water with the announcement of the first Sun Loft.  The company is the first boat builder to develop an innovative concept to meet the demands of the sharing economy with the launch of the Sun Loft 47.

Be it as a charter yacht or co-ownership partnership amongst friends the Sun Loft takes advantage of the evolving trends for the demand of reasonable priced cruising through shared costs. The Jeanneau Sun Loft 47 is designed first and foremost to be chartered, with unique living spaces designed for sharing and enjoying time with friends.

International Boat Charter Companies like the Yacht Week, Medsailors, G­adventures and Dream Yacht Charter are already among the first to place their confidence in the brand.

It directly responds to the needs identified by our long-time charter customers, and, in particular, Dream Yacht Charter: “the Sun Loft 47 is an original, versatile sailboat designed to offer “easy and comfortable” living spaces to a young and more urban clientele who are ready to experience a vacation aboard a boat at a reasonable price,” comments Loïc Bonnet, Executive Director of Dream Yacht Charter.

The design concept, by Jeanneau and Philippe Briand, offers multiple living spaces with an exceptional degree of comfort. 

On the exterior, this mono-cat features a vast and versatile cockpit layout that can be modified to suit diverse programs. Each of its two large independent tables can be transformed into a sun bathing area. The deck layout is optimised to facilitate circulation and sharing onboard and to provide well-being.

Open to the exterior, the Jeanneau Sun Loft 47 offers the chance to maximise the sensations and pleasures of life at sea. To enjoy each moment on the water, this sailboat offers a huge open galley directly adjoining the cockpit.

The focus on enjoying the outdoors is found in every feature, including the protective awnings that can be opened and closed to provide protection when needed. This protection can be easily deployed for sun, rain or wind.

The cockpit can be covered and completely closed. This central protection keeps safe skipper(s) for an absolute peace of mind.

Down below, the Sun Loft 47 features six cabins! Designed uniquely as comfortable sleeping spaces, they offer each person on board the privacy of an enclosed cabin. Inside, this mono-cat has no fewer than four heads with shower compartments, two of which afford direct access to their respective cabins.
