FRESH WATER TANK
PRICE ADJUSTMENT – SEPTEMBER 2021.
READY TO GO SOUTH.
Grand Danois is a fine example of a shoal draft, 3-cabin, 2-head version of the Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 45.2. The boat is on the hard in Deltaville, VA.
The SO 45.2 is renowned for its sailing performance as well as comfort as a live-aboard/cruising vessel. Over its lifetime this boat has crossed the Atlantic and been cruised extensively through the Caribbean and the Eastern Seaboard. The current owners have lived aboard, with family members for extended periods over the past 4 years and can attest to its ‘liveability’. They did an extensive re-fit in 2018, soon after they bought the boat and have continued to upgrade and fix as they have used the boat. Any work that they have done has been done to the highest standards – no short cuts taken.
The sugar-scoop transom with double doors and large cockpit, make it easy to access from the dinghy or the water and to move around or to relax. There is extensive cockpit storage, both under the floor and in various lazarettes. Wide side decks make it easy to move forward under way, though sail handling can all be done from the cockpit. The cockpit is well shaded, thanks to new dodger, bimini and connector installed in 2020. The arch provides support for three 100W solar panels which are ample for the electrical needs of the boat.

This is a 3-cabin, 2 head boat with the master stateroom in the bow. It has a queen-sized berth which can be accessed at the foot from both sides.
