“Dolphin Dance II”, a Jeanneau 45DS St. Vincent charter yacht.
The Jeanneau 45DS is an exceptional cruising yacht offering serious sailing performance, with great lines This yacht really stands out from the crowd. Her flexible berth arrangements make her perfect for 2 or 3 couples or families.
Above decks the cockpit is similar in size to a 50ft boat and is exceptionally laid out with dual helms, sail controls close to hand and well placed electronics. A large bimini and dodger protect the cockpit space.
Below decks it is immediately evident that the raised deck pays huge dividends in terms of volume and light, as well as giving high headroom. An L shaped galley and tons of storage space make for easy living.
Cruising World magazine made the following remarks about this model:
“With the introduction of the Sun Odyssey 45 DS, Jeanneau now has a full range from 42 to 54 feet of deck saloon yachts with the sweeping deck lines and snake’s-pupil windows that characterize the style of designer Vittorio Garroni. From the sheerline down, the hull and interior come from the pen of Philippe Briand, recognized for his talents in drawing both racing and cruising sailboats.
This boat aims to have appeal for sailors of both, wrapping a slippery hull around a finely appointed interior that’s modern in both its appearance and in the features it emphasizes. The focal point below, of course, is the area under the raised deck that encloses galley, saloon, and a nav/utility desk in an integrated, high headroom space filled with light from the large windows in both house and hull.”
