We are delighted to offer for sale 'Driftwood of Plymouth' a Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 40DS from 2001, this model is quite sought after because it is a true deck saloon, spacious and light.
With roller furling mainsail and genoa along with a comprehensive suite of Raymarine instruments and Lofrans electric windlass the boat is already set up for short handed cruising in comfort. The spacious interior with light and airy deck saloon providing all around vision from the boat means those beautiful anchorages can be enjoyed no matter what the weather.
If you are considering a true deck saloon style yacht, viewing is highly recommended.
The Sun Odyssey 40 DS is the first Jeanneau sailboat to be equipped with a revolutionary deck saloon. With living accommodations comparable to those of much bigger yachts, the interior of the 40 DS, with its panoramic view, brings an exciting dimension to cruising sailboats. The minimal drop from the cockpit to the saloon makes life onboard easy. The helm station forward, to starboard, is protected by the dodger and is close to the companionway, freeing up the cockpit for more comfortable sailing or anchoring. The moveable bench seat to port allows easy access to the transom. To starboard, the cockpit table turns into a sun deck. In the brightly lit and voluminous interior, the beauty and the detail of the woodworking relate perfectly to the quality of the furnishings. The Sun Odyssey 40 DS comes with three spacious and comfortable cabins.
Finished in a traditional style below decks with large expanses of natural varnished teak the extra light from the deck saloon windows make the boat feel far larger than her 40 feet.
A large forepeak with en-suite heads acts as the owners cabin. Well finished throughout and in good order the cabin provides a large double berth with plentiful storage in a selection of built in lockers and drawers. The heads is of an excellent size with sea toilet, sink, vanity locker and shower.
The raised saloon really benefits from the deck saloon design of the boat with the large windows providing great views from the saloon table, ideal for making the most out of scenic anchorages in all weathers. The large saloon table and U-shaped settee style seating are situated to the starboard side with the galley running along the starboard side aft of the saloon seating. The saloon table drops to convert into a good sized double if required. Again a good selection of storage is provided in the form of built in lockers.
The well appointed galley is of a practical size for a boat of this size and catering for a full crew is easily achievable with all required services, gas cooker, fridge and double stainless steel sink.
Opposite the saloon table and seating is a spacious and practical navigation station with a large open table, dedicated seating and selection of storage lockers. The Chartplotter and Radar are all within easy reach of the chart table seating.
The main heads compartment is aft of the nav station on the port side fitted out in a similar style to the slightly smaller forward heads with sea toilet, sink, vanity locker and shower.
Twin aft cabins are situated to port and starboard of the companionway. Both cabins provide good sized double berths with excellent storage for personal gear in a a selection of lockers.
GRP moulded deck finished with moulded in non-slip panels with teak laid side decks and teak laid cockpit. The teak on the cockpit seats has recently been replaced to a very high standard.
Good open foredeck clear of obstructions making movement around the deck easy. Lofrans electric windlass mounted centrally on foredeck aft of large opening chain locker. Windlass is controlled via deck mounted foot switches or remote control.
Access around mast is good with all areas easily reachable. Good wide side decks provide clear access from cockpit forward with substantial guardwires running the full length of the deck. Practical teak handrails are fitted along the top of the deck saloon area of the coachroof providing crew with additional security.
The spacious teak laid cockpit is well proportioned for a boat of this size. The binnacle mounted wheel is centrally mounted toward the aft end of the cockpit with a instrument pod housing the Raymarine instruments. A folding cokpit table mounted on the forward face of the binnacle is ideal for alfresco dinning.
