Jeanneau Sunrise 34

The Sunrise 34 is a 1984 design by Jacques Fauroux, and is typical of Jeanneau designs of the period - a clean-lined and fast hull form, with a definite performance edge over comparable sized Beneteau cruising models, and a teak interior. These slightly older Jeanneaus share a distinct family resemblance to some much more recent current Jeanneau models, but may actually be better sailing boats thanks to narrower stern sections allowing better hull balance. The design later evolved into the current 'Sun Odyssey' and 'Sun Fast' ranges, with the more cruising-orientated models designated 'Sun Odyssey', and 'Sun Fast' for the racier versions.


Contemporary reviews rated the Sunrise 34 as fast, well mannered and easily handled, although the sleek lines led to a little lower headroom below than some other models. 'Yachting Monthly' described the Sunrise 34 as ".... a pleasure to sail and extremely well balanced", and 'Sailing Today' said the design ".... soon gained a reputation for being able to take on outright racing machines with some success"


The Sunrise 34 was built with options of a single aft cabin, or twin aft cabins. This yacht is the twin aft cabin version, with one large and one slightly smaller aft double. The GRP hull is kevlar-reinforced in the bows and in stress areas around keel and rig attachments. The interior is fitted out with lots of solid teak, in a much more traditional style than current Jeanneaus.

Above: Forecabin

Fitting two good-sized double aft cabins into a 34 foot hull means that something has to give, and in the Sunrise 34 it was dressing space for the forecabin - with the infill in place to make a third double there is no floor space at all. Nevertheless, the berth is 6' 6" long, although the foot space in the bows is narrow

Saloon headroom is about 6 ft. There are solid pillars and grab handles everywhere required to allow safe movement around at sea - something often lacking in current new boats

The anchor self-stows on the bow roller, with a manual windlass usually fitted under the raised section of the anchor locker lid

The shrouds are set well inboard, allowing fairly close sheeting angles to provide good windward performance
