Broker's Comments

The Jeanneau Melody 35, first built in 1978, is a well thought of ocean-crossing cruising boat with nice lines, a solid feel and strong seakeeping abilities. She has a high ballast ratio giving her impressive upwind performance whilst still remaining comfortable to sail shorthanded

Down below this is one of the first ever Jeanneau designs with a double aft cabin in place of the more traditional quarter berths. This offers excellent accommodation for a boat of this era – she has double forecabin and the saloon has two settees which convert to great sea berths and all the bunks have ample stowage underneath.

Both the galley and the navigation area are well laid out and usable, she is currently a liveaboard although very much in sailing commission. Her owner is improving her and upgrading her, she had a new engine last year and is now undergoing considerable improvement to her electrical systems. She has a stove for heating midships keeping her dry and warm all year round

She comes fully equipped to either liveaboard or sail away on your own or with crew.
