New uses: SUN LOFT 47, a monocat designed to charter by berth
It is at the International Multihull Boat Show held in La Grande Motte, France that Jeanneau has just presented the SUN LOFT 47, a monocat designed to charter by berth.
"The Sun Loft 47 is an original and 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" commented Loïc Bonnet, CEO of Dream Yacht Charter.
An original and daring project, this 14m monohull sailboat has been designed and developed in collaboration with our charter customers to offer multiple outdoor living spaces, comfort on board and conviviality to the 12 guests plus skipper who will get onboard. Below deck, the boat offers 6 cabins, 4 bathrooms with toilets, 2 of which are directly linked to their respective cabins. The skipper cabin has its own bathroom.
This new concept will be marketed by charter companies and tour operators only. It is aimed at a younger clientele (25-35 years) who does not sail yet and wants to enjoy the sea.
