The Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 45.2 comes with a well-deserved reputation as a fast luxurious passage-maker.

It has fine entry lines, a responsive and quick hull, and an unencumbered deck layout together with ample living area, spacious galley with storage throughout, 4-cabin (convertible to 3) accommodation below deck it is a very accommodating layout for 6+ people. Or remove the partition to make for the master cabin forward and it would be perfect for a family of 4. Whether you are a seasoned sailor or a cruising enthusiast, you will appreciate the many features that make for a comfortable and convenient life on the water. The innovative, well-appointed interior makes living aboard for long periods an alluring option. It has the feel of a hand-crafted yacht in which the care of craftsmen still dictates the structure and finish of every detail.
Dark n Stormy (DnS) is well outfitted for an easy life on the water with many upgrades and maintenance in 2021/22. High output solar panels connected to 2 lithium batteries and a water maker on board the boat solves problems of power and water supply and minimizes the time needed to be spent in marinas. The solar panels rest upon a custom built durable stainless steel arch which also comfortably holds the dinghy in place during sailing. Electric windlass for the anchor and electric winch for the main halyard makes for an easy and enjoyable cruising experience.
Damage Disclosure;It should be known that there was a recent issue where the vessel was not chalked up properly and caused a depression into the hull aft of the keel and cracking in the tabbing and fiberglass surrounding a structural beam. Upon further examination by the local surveyors, there are likely structural issues with the vessel. We will be doing further investigations into the specific cause(s) of these issues and are happy to share the results but let it be known that repairs need to be done before this vessel is sea-worthy. The good news is that the vessel is already hauled out in Nanny Cay Marina where these repairs can be made to factory specifications by industry professionals. The sellers are willing to cooperate with someone to make a deal. 

Vessel history:
The boat was purchased new in 2000 by a German couple who had it for 19 years. They took great care of the boat. The second owner, an Austrian/Spanish guy, bought the boat off them in 2019 and made a number of extensive upgrades to make for comfortable cruising including a new electrical system, the custom heavy duty SS solar/dinghy davit arch and the new flexiteak on the decks. He sailed the vessel around Barcelona and made some longer trips throughout the Mediterranean and down to the Canary Islands until the current owners picked up the vessel last fall.  
Instead of waiting until they retire to set off on an adventure, the current owners are three best friends that went in on the vessel with a single purpose; to sail across the Atlantic and around the Caribbean. They managed to do just that! They all took 6 months off work and made some everlasting memories on their journey. It has finally come to an end and it is time to find the new owner to carry on Dark' n Stormy's adventures! 

Dark'n Stormy  is EU VAT PAID and currently on the hard and already located in one of the best cruising destinations in the world and the epicenter of the marine industry in the Virgin Islands, at Nanny Cay Marina, Tortola BVI.
