Broker's Comments

This fantastic yacht is in my opinion one the best examples of a Jeanneau 40DS around. With the modern Deck Saloon styling and performance to match, she is a very well built capable cruising yacht. There are three cabins with double berths in two and conversion to double berth in the third. The master cabin is forward with its own en-suite heads and plenty of storage space. With the deck saloon layout she is a very light and airy yacht, ideal for long distance cruising in warmer climates. Standing room is over 6'6" in the saloon, master cabin and heads. Berth lengths are also generous. The 56HP engine propels her well under power and has only 500 hours use.
What more can I say, this boat just looks outstanding.
