"Astra", a Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 36i presents in excellent condition. These fine cruising yachts are noted for their outstanding performance under sail (and motor). The simple and efficient rig/systems are such that these boats can easily (and safely) be sailed short-handed. Sails are managed from the cockpit (including reefing). The responsive helm under motor makes for fuss-free docking. The wide beam is carried through to the transom maximising cabin and cockpit space. The cockpit is spacious and well sheltered. Below deck, the accommodation is extraordinarily generous and well-appointed providing a level of crew comfort rarely seen on a boat of this size. "Astra" is beautifully fitted out and comprehensively equipped including ducted cabin heating and radar. Her current owner has undertaken a number of upgrades and has meticulously maintained her.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Quality boats of this type are in demand. A number have recently sold with 48 hours of the listing being published. If this is your sort of boat, CALL PAUL 0418 385 866 to arrange an inspection.

The spacious cockpit is well sheltered and with BBQ, folding cockpit table and comfortable cushions is effectively an extension of below deck accommodations. Step below and you will appreciate the space, the ambience created by the warmth of the timber fit-out and the natural light via the deck hatches and windows/ports. . Aft to starboard is a private double cabin. To port is the bathroom with a separate shower stall. Aft of the bathroom is a huge storage locker (sails, sheets, tools etc). Forward of the bathroom is the navigation table which slides aft when not in use to free up settee space. The full-service galley is opposite to starboard. Forward is the dinette with seating for 6 around the dining table with drop leaves and wine storage. With the table leaves down a comfortable occasional double berth can be set up. Forward of the bulkhead is a private double V-berth. Both private cabins have privacy doors and hanging lockers. A Webasto Diesel Heater provides a subtle, comforting warmth throughout.
