This amazing sailing vessel has it all...loaded with equipment from the manufacturer, a full set of custom Doyle racing sails and an owner who spared no expense in maintaining the boat.
The Deck Salon models of Jeanneau sailboats are very hard to find and because of the desirable cabin layout they do not last long on the market.
This Jeanneau is the Deck Salon model, which means it has some features that regular Sun Odyssey's do not. The largest of which is the master aft cabin layout. This 41 has the interior volume of most 45' boats on the market along with 10 opening ports and hatches for great ventilation and a bright, airy feeling.
The forward cabin has a large V-berth with the adjustable headrest for reading and relaxing. Storage under the berth and a double hanging locker assure plenty of places to put belongings.
The forward head is to starboard with an optional electric head. Cabinet countertop has a stainless steel sink and the shower has a Plexiglas divider to help keep things dry.
The salon in this model is very large and bright. Jeanneau uses Alpi-Tech woodwork which is both durable and beautiful.The wood cabin sole is bright and has machined stripes. The luxury salon folding table which raises and lowers at the touch of a button is included.
The galley is directly to starboard when coming down the companionway. She features a solid countertop, a sliding sink cover and a faucet with a spray head.The drawers have a soft return system and the waste bin is on a slide out. The fridge/freezer hold 185L and there are also bottle storage drawers. There is a propane stove/oven combo and a microwave for quick warm ups.
Jeanneau's are known for their proper Navigation Stations. The Nav station is to port and has a custom wine refrigerator built into the cabinet underneath! There is space for a laptop with an integrated plug. The chart table is large with excellent storage underneath. The VHF radio is located here as well as the centralized electrical panels.
The aft master stateroom is a huge feature on this model boat. She has a queen size berth, storage lockers and a large hanging locker. An opening port onto the transom provides a view of the water and ensures good ventilation. Leather seats on each side of the berth finish off this amazing cabin space.
"Bonne Vie" is equipped with two air conditioning/heat units, one in the salon and the other in the master stateroom.
The aft head compartment is large and well ventilated.It features a Corian countertop and wood flooring. The shower has a plexiglas divider and storage for shower items.
The Yanmar diesel engine is accessed under the companionway steps and side access is also available.
