You have to hand it to Jeanneau, it gets around. A couple of months ago, we were extolling the virtues of its two new 50-footers and now here we are checking out its twist on the cuddy market
Jeanneau has one of the largest and most varied ranges of any European manufacturer. Hence, there always seems to be something new to test and while a few months ago we featured its latest take on 50 footers, this time around we find out what it can offer in terms of a couple of cuddies: one is a
walkaround with sunpad area above its cabin (the WA), while the other model (the DC) has a cuddy with dual purpose cockpit.
Confused by the difference? Well, both just about land you in overnighting territory because they can be jazzed up with some catering facilities but to get the full picture check
out the October 2011 issue of MBM.
Prices vary between models, with the WA costing £49,950 as standard and the DC just under £2000 more at £51,983. Options differ between models.

- Both boats boast plenty of neat ideas and decent sized cuddies. Run well.
- Overhead vents on the DC's cabin roof open inwards, which means water is likely to find its way in. Not great woodwork.
