Boat is Sold

 

Well maintained and perfectly equipped Decksaloon Yacht designed for Circumnavigation

 

The Sun Odyssey 43 DS is most likely the one DECKSALON yacht which offers the best value for money. Underdecks you can look outside even when seated and you have a great view while working in the galley. This model is one of the last series, built by market leaders like Jeanneau or Bavaria, where furniture-, wall- and floor surfaces are of real wood, Teak in this case. Newer models come laminated, which is cheaper and does not give this warm feeling of comfort below decks.

 

 

Among all SO 43 DS on the market, Gipsy IIII is for sure the one with the most comprehensive equipment, designed for circumnavigation. Also, you will hardly find another one with a cutter rigg. The inner forestay with a furling jib is of outstanding value, regardless whether you have to beat upwind in stronger conditions or you want to go wing to wing with the genoa.

 

 

Gipsy IIII also comes with a sophisticated energy concept, where all the electricity you need will be supplied by the sun and the wind. Solar panels and windmill provide enough energy, to be independent from the main engine or shore power, regardless whether being at sea or at anchor, even longterm.

 

 

She is ready to go for blue water cruising. You will buy directly from the owner, who is still living on board and more than happy, to share with you all the knowledge you need to maximize the fun with this outstanding cruising yacht. After sailing half around the world from Europe to Australia in a six year's journey,  the skipper's wife has become sick of sailing. Therefore, Gipsy IIII is for sale now. You will get a hell of a lot of boat for the money, thus the price is not negotiable.
