The Sun Odyssey 42DS boasts a modern, fluid design, a rare, timeless elegance, and the comfortable interior layout expected of a sailboat built for cruising, all while delivering a superior performance. The powerful hull impresses, not simply for its excellent performance at sea, but also for its ease of handling due to its reinforced hull design and expertly designed sail plan.

Let yourself be seduced by the space and light. An abundance of natural light and fresh air fill the saloon, with its raised deckhouse and large portholes. Refreshing and relaxing, interior living spaces are comfortable at all times, whether day or night

What makes this boat so appealing is first and foremost its styling. Designed by Vittorio Garroni in collaboration with naval architect, Marc Lombard, the 42DS is the third design in the current range of deck salons and features the same signature look as its two predecessors, the 49DS and 54DS. The second feature that adds greatly to the appeal of the 42DS is the price. With an average sail away price for a very nicely equipped boat, the 42DS represents terrific value.

Other noteworthy features include an ultra modern hull, providing exceptional speed while under sail or power, twin steering wheels for easy maneuvering and comfort in the cockpit, long Harken roof-mounted mainsheet track, Harken self-tailing winches, large cockpit table with plenty of room to accommodate the Raymarine C70 or E80 chartplotter, moulded table base providing both height and ventilation to the aft cabin below and conveniently placed genoa winches that are mounted within easy reach of the helm stations.

Below decks, the raised cabin sole has deliberately been kept low in order to make full use of the space under the side decks. The interior, like that of all our deck salons, is open and bright with plenty of ventilation. A very spacious owner’s cabin, complete with queen size island berth, is located aft along with an extremely large head and shower. A second guest cabin and head are located all the way forward giving the owners and their guests plenty of privacy and room to move around.
