Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 42 DS
£109,950 tax paid

The Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 42DS is a proven yacht in every respect, fantastic to sail, wonderful modern cockpit and an interior which feels like a far larger yacht. Her aft cabin is simply unbeatable for this size of yacht. "Aira" is a lovely example of the 42DS, sold from new by Sea Ventures and she has always been very well cared for and maintained. We expect plenty of interest in Aira so please do not hesitate to arrange a viewing.

Owner's Comments

Aira is a great boat and was a superb introduction to sailing for me.  She handles very well and always gets very positive comment from guests.  The massive aft cabin is very comfortable to sleep in and we have had six on board overnight on numerous occasions with no complaints.  She has been across the channel on a number of occasions in my ownership and has always performed well. 

I am selling her to purchase a "round the world" boat as I start to look at semi retirement over the next few years.
