This beautiful 2010 model Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 42DS includes all the bells and whistles you need to start your cruising adventures! Days Like This is a great example of the popular two cabin “owner’s version” with two ensuite heads and a spacious main salon.

Need a reminder of what makes this model so special? This 42DS has the largest, centerline aft cabin berth in the entire Jeanneau line - larger than the bed in the 57, 53, 50 or any other model. The exterior “living area” is just as nice with a beautiful teak table, built-in icebox and the Deck Salon style cockpit including 3-zones with twin helm and a much larger space than the newer “9-series” by Jeanneau.

Of course, along with all the amenities to cruise comfortably, Days Like This is in very good condition with very little use and she will deliver the superior sailing performance you expect from a Jeanneau.

This is the two-cabin, owner's layout with two heads. Both cabins are nice enough to use as a master “retreat”. The forward stateroom has a spacious V-berth with step and seating access from either side. There is also plenty of storage along both sides and under the berth. In addition, this stateroom has a private, ensuite head.

Moving aft into the salon, there is a spacious entertainment area with a straight settee to port and a U-shaped settee with large dining table to starboard. The dinette converts to a double berth for extra guests. The port side of the table folds down to allow for a wide walkway through the center of the main cabin. A bulkhead-mounted TV can be easily viewed from any location in the salon and galley. A nice-sized, L-shaped galley is conveniently located just aft of the dinette. Across from the galley, there is a large, forward facing nav station that any sailor would love with a wide desk top, storage space for a laptop computer and connection cords and access to all of the electrical panel power controls.           

The aft stateroom can be entered directly through the galley on the starboard side or by passing through the head on the port side. The aft head has dual entries from the aft cabin and from the salon which allows it to function as a private, ensuite head at night as well as a conveniently located day head. The aft stateroom has a king-size, centerline berth with lounge seating on either side, two lamp "night stand" cabinets and nice opening ports as well as port lights on either side. There is a second TV and abundant storage, including two hanging lockers.
