About Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 40 - 2001
HEY! OUR BASE IS THE ISLAND VIS & Yacht haven - Marina at Milna, Island of Brac!
(see for other options)
This means = we are right on the spot, close to small islands and beaches around Vis, Blue Cave, Green Cave, city & Island of Hvar, Stari Grad of Hvar island, Milna of island Brac, island Solta, all around at the 1-2 hours relaxed sailing from each to another, to provide 100% efficiency of your time spent on our yacht instead losing... hours and days on traveling to it from costal busy harbours in the heath of the summer season. You can easily reach our base by catamaran line or ferry line from Split in less or not much more then 2 hours and be right in the center of the most wanted sea-world hot spot of Adriatic Sea, as the starting point of your journey, right there. Seeing these islands from the sea side sailing is the best way. To complete this route as a whole, we advise at least 1 week, but if this not always possible, our experienced and professional skipper can look to make the route best to fit your time available.
The Croatian island Vis, the recent filming site of Hollywood new "Mama Mia 2" movie (Merril Streep, Pierce Brosnan), the popular pearl of Adriatic Sea as your direct starting point of your cruise: No dull moment from the start, no time loss at the beginning and the ending of your sailing period on our yacht for travel from the busy coast cities bases to the islands first and, at the and, back to costal base! = full efficiency of your days on our sailing yacht.
The combination of our choice of the best starting location and the boat quality, its type, image and craftmanschaft is the reason why our guests are coming back.
Our base is either Island Vis, porto Vis, the pearl of Adriatic Sea, where recently shooting of the Hollywood movie "Mama Mia 2" took place or Milna, Island Brac (till +-15th July and from +- 25 August - please ask the details for your specific booking period). Both islands, especially Vis are a perfect starting point for our sailing yacht because you are at the best sea-island spot from the start of your cruise. No long travel needed first and last day from/to the base = 100% time spent on the boat efficiency from day one till your last day on our sailing yacht means christal clear sea water from the start till the end. The best restaurants, beaches, bays, dive/swim/snorkle/fishing locations and famous sea-caves (Green and Blue Cave!) are all around our great starting location! This is our main distinction. You reach us by the ferry/catamaran from Split, we pick you up at the island porto and town of Split you reach or by the plane or by car, a new highway to the coast provides a great views.
The reasons why we and the most of our guests like spending time at the sea on our French beauty:
ABOUT THE BOAT:
Refit year: 2017
This boat of, from this day a true vintage quality and great classic, ellegant, powerful design, belongs to the last generation of extremely solid and pretty JEANNEAU boats with French taste and quality built at the end of the era (year 2000-2003) when they used robust, tick Teak wood interior (in contrast to today's "Ikea" cheaper plastic & laminates) and very strong Kevlar hull with tick gelcoat overall, a high quality from the time before famous French sailing yacht builder Jeanneau brand was taken by confectional huge Bennetau factory and had superb distinction from all others in this category by all means at first look: solid, ellegant, sportive, safe, stable, gracious in moving and sailing across the sea and spacious inside providing maximal confort for its size. This 40 feet model is especially interesting from this period. It is lower for its lenght (=speed and stability) when the others started to bring out higher lines what gives this one greater stability on the sea and safety and yet standing hight confort all over inside spacy salon in his full lengt. Timeless sailing yacht line & design. It is hard to find a new 40 feet boat of same class as affordable as this one was, today. There were also not many made as the production and materials used were not cheap eather. You see all of this from the moment you step on it and he does not move a bit and especially inside the spacy salon and its cosy 3 huts. We never cut on maintainance. Always provided by professionals. Unlike others of same kind, our yacht has an extra feature, a stronger and very solid, famous Yanmar diesel engine of 56HP. An extremely relyable ship engine.
This boat of this vintage quality & design is hard to find in same sized new ones and in the same price category as the new ones are cheaper produced nowadays, using cheaper materials, designs, etc. You see this imediately and all professionals in field will agree on this. This is why we decided to keep ours and maintain it well instead of exchanging for a new one, produced at the later date. Our model is one of the best of its kind, price value and category, ever made in France. It's true. And you feel that from the moment you see her and step on it.
Word from the experts in the time our boat model was born at French well-known Jeanneau factory:
FEET OF ELEGANCE AND COMFORT The boat, designed by Daniel Andrieu, should be a phenomenal success. Built around a very quick hull, the inside has exceptional space and volume. There is a modern look to the exterior, with twin helm stations in the aft cockpit for incredible comfort. As for the interior, the Design Office worked from the same general layout and conception as the Sun Odyssey 40DS, combining fine teak woodwork with the new satin varnish, in Jeanneau's finest style. 3 cabin 2 head All the layouts are considered exceptional for long-range cruising. A superb performance hull design by Daniel Andrieu A modern deck in the Jeanneau tradition An original idea: twin wheels on a 40 footer Unsurpassed quality of finish.
Length overall 12.2 m / 40'0" Hull length 11.75 m / 38'6" Light displacement 7170 kg / 15807 Lbs Standard keel draught 1.5 m / 4'11" Weight 2400 kg / 5291 Lbs Fuel capacity 136 l / 36 US gal Water capacity 320 l / 85 US gal Cabins 3, 2 toilets, 2 showers + Deck Shower, powered by YANMAR 56HP Diesel engine.
To the contrast of most others colleagues who are located in the busy, crowded coast city yacht-havens, we are located at the popular islands Vis and Brac (Milna) so that we are at the nautical hot spots right from the start instead of losing 1-2 days before reaching it. Like this we provide better using of the time rentals. The sea water is crystal clean right from the DAY 1, great for swimming, diving, fishing and ofcourse, sailing. Our skipper is also a great chef so you will have the oportunity to taste some of the great local slow food specialities and our own family made wine while exploring the Island from the sea side sailing. This islands region of Middle/South Adriatic Sea is famous nautic hot spot and this is why we are based in the middle of it, on the islands and not on the coast further away, a day or 2 sailing before able to reach us.We are right there from the DAY 1 of your time you want to spend on boar, sailing around the Island Vis and others around. Once here, everything you want to visit is close to 1-3 hours max sailing. We have the best weather on the Island Vis and some of the best restaurants in country. We can start from porto Vis, Island Vis or Hvar or Brac (Milna, Marina Vlaska) and visit them all in 1 or 2 weeks sailing. This is why we chose for our unique location instead from city of Split. You can reach us by ferry or catamaran line from Split taking you to the islands where we will pick you up.
Island Vis was recently host of Hollywood stars Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan and Andy Garcia shooting "Mama Mia 2" on the island.
