Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 44i

2011 model Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 44i “IKIGAI” is a stunner. Comprehensively equipped for serious long passage liveaboard cruising and an extremely capable blue water cruiser. She is very airy and spacious, easy to sail and ticks all the family fun boxes with her large 3 cabin interior. Home-like accommodation and plenty of relaxing space inside and out, make this an ideal French-designed family cruising yacht with excellent sail performance.  She has two complete suits of sails.  One suit has only been used for one season and is in excellent condition.  The "delivery sails" are from 2014 and in good condition. The standing rigging was completely replaced in 2021, and has a Harken hydraulic, adjustable, dyneema backstay.

The current owners have sailed her across the Mediterranean, the North Atlantic and the Pacific Ocean without incident. She is an extremely fast cruising boat, easily hitting 8 knots in just 10-12kts. With her wide beam and bronze, flex-o-fold propeller, sailing is fast, comfortable and quiet.

Three cabin version, three heads, with loads of storage and secure cupboard space. Cleverly designed throughout with some very innovative features.

The Jeanneau 44i is big enough to easily house six adults. The large owners cabin forward, with a large bathroom including a dedicated shower and head, and more than enough locker space for a couple living aboard, and two separate quarter berths with queen-sized beds, and ensuite each with head and handheld shower, gives guests or family complete freedom and privacy.

The saloon layout, with its offset dinette that can accommodate up to eight people is cavernous and airy. Buyers will also appreciate the in-line galley that's arranged so that whoever is preparing food at the sink or cooking at the stove doesn't block passage to the forward cabin, between the dinette and the galley and yet they remain close to the action at the saloon table.

Modern cruising yacht buyers demand homelike comforts and the Jeanneau 44i's pampering begins at the pointy end. Up front in this three-head, three-cabin version is an island vee-berth, with stacks of wardrobe and secure cupboard space. Clever design shows in a compact, fold-out dressing table, complete with makeup compartments.

Aft cabins typically become repositories for water toys, but the 44i has enough bin space around the cockpit to swallow most of that kit, keeping the aft "kids' zone" uncluttered - until the juniors come aboard with their own stuff!

Full Sunbrella canvas over the entire cockpit enclosure, large bimini, spray dodger and can be sailed with all of this cover in place avoiding frying out there in the sun or in full protection from all weather.

The Jeanneau 44i has a trademark stepped transom for easy access into the water however there is some safety features in place preventing an accidental dip in the water. Dock access has never been easier from this transom plus there is a dedicated passarelle fixing point when required.

The owners have spared no expense in maintaining and upgrading every system on this boat over the last 4 years. The engine is an extremely well maintained and super clean Yanmar 4JH5-CE showing 3,200 hours on the meter.

Twin wheels are wide apart and easy to walk from one to the other without worrying about the boat heading off course and it holds a solid, stable feel when sailing. It gives the helmsman a perfect view of the sails. Manoeuvring into a marina berth is easy as the boat turns on a dime and has a powerful bow thruster if required.
