If you are looking for a sloop for cruising near or far destinations you have found it with this 2008 Jeanneau 42 DS cruiser.
Built by a proven manufacturer, you can enjoy your time on the water and enjoy harnessing the wind which is what she was designed for.
This model is a modern design to accommodate a family or guests with 2-cabins and 2-heads.
Below deck - The large salon and galley is very practical with a linear layout to prep the finest gourmet meal and keeps all deckhands content for the long haul journey while under sail.
Above deck, there is a large cockpit with a dual wheel helm.
Plenty of area for your crew to assist with trimming sails and then turn on the outdoor BBQ to make some quick meal on a sunset cruise.
Amazing cruiser sailboat in every way! From the slanted side decks and walk-around cockpit to the rectangular master bed down below this boat is perfect for family and friends getaways. Two separate double berths sleeping rooms with their own heads.
Very well kept by only one original owner which is an expert sailor. Brand new sails had been installed this spring.
All clean and in immaculate condition. The engine is very quiet and clean.
Also are included two 85 watt solar panels
The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.
Classic hull speed formula:
Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWLA more accurate formula devised by Dave Gerr in The Propeller Handbook replaces the Speed/Length ratio constant of 1.34 with a calculation based on the Displacement/Length ratio.
Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio.311
Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL
A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.
SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64)2/3
A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.
Ballast / Displacement * 100
A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.
D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³
This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.
Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam1.33)
This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.
CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)
Shallow draft: 1.6m/5.16’
I: 16.2m /53.35’
