   This Jeaneau SO DS Legend is open to offers

Absolutely in top condition and sailed here from France by this owner. What sets the Sun Odyssey apart from the rest is the easy living and extra light below decks which makes for a great party or family boat with a large aft cabin nowhere else to be found. Solar panels, Thruster, Burmese teak, teak decking and much more.






This boat has been home for the owner and his young family for the last year as they sailed across from France and have spend the year cruising the Caribbean and many ports of call in the USA. Comfort and volume are the key characteristics of the Jeanneau 43DS interior. The roomy salon with its panoramic windows has great visibility while seated at the dinette. The owner's aft cabin has a large (6'7" x 6'2") centerline berth and 6'2" standing headroom. V-berth forward and an over-under bunk cabin just aft of the V-berth to starboard All cabins are finished in beautiful Burmese teak. Large main salon with folding table and room for several family and guests. All Cabins and floors are beautifully appointed with Burmese teak. Many Goiot hatches windows and port lights give this boat superior daylight, visibility to the outside not commonly seen on a sailboat. Cozy and warm is how we describe the feel of the interior. This layout and plenty of natural light in the cabin was this owner’s top priority for his family second only to the rugged construction and handling of the boat. The owner has provided many had and grab rails on this boat for maximum comfort.
Master Stateroom Large centerline queen berth Abundant storage on port & starboard - hanging lockers each side - storage bins on each side of berth Seating on both sides of berth Opening ports with screens sunshades and curtains Private access to aft head   Salon The bright and spacious salon features a large teak drop-leaf table surrounded by a U-shaped dinette to starboard.  Opposite the dinette are two seats flanking a table that also serves as the nav station.  The dinette comfortably accommodates eight people.  All lockers have positive latches that will stay shut when sailing offshore. There are numerous Goiot deck hatches and port lights (with screen inserts) providing ample ventilation.  Below the dinette sole a storage locker to handle provisions for very long voyages.  The kind of space not found on many yachts this size.  Solid teak drop leaf table with holly inlay Sony stereo and CD changer Sunbrella and Textaline salon window covers (one way visibility)  Wide companionway steps with non skid strips Recessed lighting Curtains Large opening hatch with sunshade   Forward Cabin The forward cabin has large V-berth with nice ventilation and light.

The L-shaped galley on starboard includes double sinks, 12-volt refrigeration and a two-burner propane stove with oven.  The stovetop has a cover that adds to the counter space.  The teak fiddles are substantial and a clever acrylic splashguard separates the galley from the saloon.  There is a hatch overhead, one of several, and the ventilation is good throughout the boat.
