General Comments

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 and easy sail. Owner’s version with owner's cabin forward, with a huge U-shaped galley. The Sun Odyssey 40's are considered exceptional for long-range cruising. A superb performance hull design by Daniel Andrieu.

Last survey was in June 2006.

Quote from surveyor in 2006 'General good condition and has benefited from a regular maintenance schedule in recent years'.
