The Jeanneau Sun Fizz 40 is a well-designed and fast family cruiser. 'Flying Colours' was raced in her early days and then sailed across the Atlantic and used as a ‘live-aboard’ in the West Indies. The current owners have enjoyed her for the last 5 years. During this time they have raced her in Antigua, sailed across the Atlantic twice, and used her for extensive cruising throughout the Caribbean. She is spacious and comfortable,with lots of deck space, a generous cockpit, a large saloon, one heads and two showers - one internal and one external. The light bright teak veneer interior is well ventilated with portlight and hatches. With such a schedule, both hull and rigging have been constantly updated and well maintained. The owners are reluctantly selling her for a simpler life in Spain and are hopeful to pass their ‘pride and joy’ on to a young couple desiring the advantages of a cruising life with the option of simply living aboard when a destination becomes more attractive than the journey.
