Description: Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 42DS "Genevieve"
The 42DS is a high-volume boat with considerable freeboard providing great space on deck and below. Clever design has produced a fine-looking boat with nice lines and which performs well in all respects. The decks are wide and uncluttered. The well-sheltered cockpit is big, deep and secure. With cockpit cushions, table and BBQ it is effectively an extension of the living space. Efficient under sail and motor the 42DS is a proven sea boat. Visibility from each of the two helms is excellent. The power winches, furling headsail/main and the easy cockpit access to halyards and sail trim systems ensure this boat can be safely sailed short-handed. A bow thruster assists with the tight manoeuvres. STEP BELOW to a light, airy SPACIOUS saloon, a first-class galley, an amazing full-beam owner's aft cabin with king-size bed, a well-appointed private cabin forward, two bathrooms, a real nav station and much more... This is simply cruising at its best.
"Genevieve's" experienced owner has completed a number of circumnavigations of Tasmania and cruised the Bass Strait extensively (often single-handed).
She has been well maintained and presents well. Note: The vessel will be handed to the next owner with a NEW SPRAY DODGER AND BIMINI (currently on order).

Below deck, the layout is efficient and functional. Jeanneau's vast design experience is evident. Immediate impressions are light, fresh air and space and a welcoming ambience thanks to the warmth of the Fine Teak fit-out.
* Forward is a large private double (V) cabin with en-suite and hanging lockers.
* Aft of the bulkhead is the dinette with seating for 6 to 8. A 'U' shaped settee lounge is to starboard with an in-line settee opposite to port. In the centre is a large drop-side dining table (with inset wine bottle storage). An insert can be dropped into the starboard lounge to make an occasional berth. The settees are nicely upholstered in off-white Alcantra.
* The chart table/navigation station is to port. This is the 'nerve' centre with the switchboard, monitoring instruments and radios all within easy reach.
* The L shaped galley is to starboard and adjacent to the companionway steps strategically located to service on and below deck.
* The companionway steps swing out to access the engine.
*Aft of the galley is the door to the owners' grand (FULL BEAM) cabin that truly should be referred to as the 'stateroom'. With a super-king-size (2m x 2m) double bed, bed end seats, lockers and storage aplenty, plenty of light and ventilation, en-suite (of course). The en-suite has a second door from the saloon for day access
Headroom throughout is excellent.
A very efficient Webasto diesel heater provides a subtle warmth in winter.
Storage: Jeanneau understands the importance of easily accessed, dedicated storage bins and lockers. Behind, under and below, there is sufficient storage to stow the needs of a full crew for an extended cruise. A good example is the deep bilge storage under the galley floor.
On deck: There are huge cockpit lockers and of course a dedicated gas locker.
