Sun Way 25
Deep draft

With the Sun Way 25, Jeanneau offers its interpretation of the first boat, simple and versatile. She adopts a young and sporty look: discreet superstructure, low freeboard and open interior space with clear counter-mold that replaces the usual woodwork.

The Sun Way 25 is reasonable and economical; she is, in keel version, unsinkable, thus dispensing with the obligation to have a life-raft. The draft and the sail plan are limited even if the bulb provides a bit more stiffness.
