2004 Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 32 Lift Keel

location icon Burnham-on-Crouch, United Kingdom
Year 2004
Length 32 ft
Builder/Manufacturer Jeanneau

The lift keel Sun Odyssey 32 is a special boat. With her lifting plate rotating between her twin keels and the fact she has twin rudders means that she can be used on a drying mooring like a bilge keeled yacht and can access the remotest of locations. New keel bushes in 2017. This example is a tiller steered version which provides a huge cockpit for sailing and entertaining. A galley second to none in this length of yacht her six berth layout is very practical both at sea and in harbour. Well worth inspection to avoid disappointment.
