Broker Remarks

Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 40 DS for sale. Built in 2000, this is a really good example of these popular and very desirable deck saloon cruisers. The 40 DS is a family cruiser with a deck saloon that offers light, airy accommodation and fabulous all round panoramic views. There are three double cabins, including a very comfortable and spacious  owners cabin forward which enjoys en-suite facilities. Teak decks, in mast furling and pedestal steering make this arguably the perfect spec.  This Jeanneau Sun Odyssey DS also has the upgraded 56hp Yanmar diesel, which has been annually serviced and winterized.

Recent updates to the electronics include touch colour chart plotter and radar. Standing rigging replaced in 2015. So ....  Watch the world go by from the deck saloon of ELEANOR!
