A fast modern small cruiser lift-keel cruiser with a simple cruising interior, and quite high performance under sail. She has twin rudders, and can dry out level if required, balanced on the keel housing and the rudder tips. This one-owner example has been quite cruised from a Christchurch base up the East Coast as far as Lowestoft, and west to the Scillies. As a result of being used as a proper cruiser rather than a weekender there is a much higher specification and more extensive inventory than will be found on most of these boats. A 4-wheel trailer is also available if required.

Introduced in 2005, the Jeanneau Sun 2500 was designed by Olivier Petit and the Jeanneau design office as a fast small coastal cruiser. Unlike many small centreboard cruisers, the lift keel does not intrude into the cabin, being a GRP centreboard operating within an external iron keel stub. The centreboard is hinged on a stainless steel pivot with nylon bushes. It operates by S/S wire and rope tail, running up the king post through the deck to the starboard coachroof winch. A fixed fin keel option was also sold, but these are much rarer.
With twin rudders, which also give good control even when heeled, this keel configuration also allows the boat to dry out level, supported on the keel stub and rudder tips. Although designed to dry, she would not be suitable for regular use on exposed drying moorings.
The wide transom gives a large double berth aft, and a spacious cockpit. The Sun 2500 is clearly a moderately fast boat for her size, the RYA racing handicap numbers quoted for 2012 being similar to those of the Beneteau Firsts of 24 and 25 ft designed as club racers, and faster than a British Hunter 26 or 27.
The Jeanneau Sun 2500 was also sold with a fixed keel, though most boats sold had the lifting keel option. The standard engine was either a Yanmar IGM 10 hp inboard diesel or an outboard of similar power, although this yacht has had a smother and more powerful 2YM 15 hp engine fitted in 2015.
'Practical Boat Owner' magazine have described the Sun 2500 as having ".... sufficient power to make rapid coastal passages, while it's centreplate reduces its draught to 0.68 metres when you want to creep up a creek".
