The Jeanneau 43 Deck Saloon design is a wonderfully designed and built offshore capable sailboat. It was designed by Daniel Andrieu to be one of several ?Sun Odyssey? offshore sailboats built by the Jeanneau Shipyard in Cholet in western France. The Jeanneau 43 Deck Saloons were built from 1999 thru 2006. The design and build quality was conceived to create a strong, fast, raised saloon yacht with a low profile classic look. The hull construction is solid hand laid fiberglass with laminated wood longitudinal stringers and frames (not interior hull liners characteristic of Beneteau boats. The result is a heavier, stronger, quieter hull especially suited to offshore sailing and big winds and seas. The raised or deck saloon design allows full size windows to be incorporated into the saloon and the floors to be raised to facilitate an average height person being able to stand in the main saloon and be able to see out the seven large windows, to allow light to flood the interior and to add additional storage bins under the cabin sole. The deck saloon design innovation was a significant step in the direction of better all-around visibility, better interior lighting and added storage for long offshore voyages.

Other practical design innovations incorporated into the Jeanneau 43 Deck Saloon design are a strong, oversize and reliable Yanmar 75 HP turbo-charged diesel, dual anchor rollers, a split anchor well, in-mast roller furling, a shallow draft bulb keel drawing only 5' 3", and ICW friendly mast height of 58' 1", plenty of sail area, (full main 380 sq ft, full jib 390 sq ft, (560 sq ft with a 145% genoa), plus a removable inner forestay and staysail, dual spinnaker halyards, all sail control lines led to the cockpit, a roomy cockpit with a walk around helm and a step-through transom, and a welcome wide stern swim platform.

Interior innovations include the design enabling a two or three cabin arrangement, with a large aft berth convertible from a large single berth into two separate smaller berths with a removable partition, two heads with showers, the main head having a separate shower stall, a spacious ?L? shaped galley, a large ?U? shaped dinette/settee to starboard that can easily seat six and a full navigation console to port,

    Accomodations - Two or three cabin deck saloon

    Raised Saloon

    The raised salon is filled with natural light and a pleasant alternative to the usual dark and enclosed sailboat interior.  The raised dinette to starboard sits atop a platform that allows one to see directly outside through the many, large saloon windows.  The table base is wide and offers excellent support and added storage.  The dinette can be converted to a double berth by lowering the table top to rest on two strong support beams and a large 6 inch thick cushion matching the dinette cushions complets the conversion. The dinette is large enough to sit 6 adults for a lovely prepared meal or snack.  The settee cushions are sculpted for comfort while seated.  Storage bins are located under the settee, beneath the dinette platform, in the forward bilge and outboard of the settee in four hinged cabinets.  To port is also a raised platform with two upholstered seats facing starboard with a navigation table between them. The desk top opens for storage of charts or office tools in the table.  A bookshelf is forward and outboard of the forward seat and the electrical panel/communication panels, circuit breakers and electronics is outboard of the aft seat. Large storage cabinets are under each seat. The aft cabinet is set up to provide secure storage of wine and liquor bottles. Beneath the forward-most salon sole is access to the bilge and bilge pumps with a removable, self-draining, storage bin. The primary fuel tank and central fresh water tank are accessed via the two lifting floor panels aft of the bilge access floor panel. 

    To starboard of the companionway is the large "L" shaped galley. It is well lighted and well suited to meal preparation in port or at sea. A half height bulkhead with an etched glass partition provides separation between the galley and saloon. The galley counter-tops are laminate with teak fiddles. In the galley, starting forward and inboard are two stainless steel sinks, one measuring 13 x 12 and 6 inches deep and one 9 x 12 x 6 inches deep. Convenient removable laminate sink covers matching the counter-top can cover the two sinks. The covers can be reversed to have white plastic cutting boards facing up. Beneath the sink counter to the left are four sliding plastic drawers. To the right is a cabinet providing two shelves for storing galley supplies. A round trash bin is mounted on the cabinet door and conveniently swings open when the door is opened. Along the outboard cabinet and counter are three hinged top opening compartments, a small storage bin, a 2.6 cubic ft storage bin, or cooling box vented to the refrigerator and the and top access to the 5.0 cubic foot top and front access Frigaboat refrigerator. The hinged front access door is sheathed in stainless steel.

    Three cabinets with hinged doors are outboard of the counter top beneath the deck edge.  An Eno gimbaled stainless steel, two burner, propane, stove and oven are aft of the refrigerator. Above the stove and outboard is a built in Emerson microwave oven.  A roll-away stove cover slides and stores inconspicuously behind the stove. A Xintex propane solenoid switch and 120 volt outlet are adjacent to the stove. Convenient additional galley storage is beneath the galley floor in the form of four stacked plastic bins which can be stored below the floor and lifted to the galley counter-top for access and organizing.

    To port of the companionway is the aft head with a separate shower stall.  Privacy doors with locking handles allow separate ingress and egress from the main saloon or from the aft cabin. The head is electric with maceration before the holding tank.  Forward is the spacious and bright stall shower separated from the head by a tinted acrylic door and partition with chrome hardware.  A single lever shower mixer valve, hose, and nozzle mount allow stand up or sit down showering.  A fold down white plastic seat is outboard and forward.  A small opening overhead hatch is used to ventilate the shower stall. Outboard and forward of the head is a vanity with oval shaped stainless steel sink hung below a Corrian counter.  A single lever faucet mixes and dispenses the hot and cold water.  Outboard and above the sink is a vanity mirror angled for easy viewing. A small toiletries cabinet is behind the hinged mirror panel.  Additional storage is beneath the sink and a in a teak storage cabinet beneath the sink.

A removable separation panel is used to divide the king berth into two separate berths. A removable canvas curatin can complete the separation enabling two nerly private cabins and berths. Shelves and two lockers with hinged tops are outboard on each side of the king size berth. A wide and shallow storage bin is under the berth.  The "House" and engine "Start" batteries are located under the berth, two to starboard and two to port.  Forward and outboard on each side are cabin wardrobe lockers with shelves and hanging space.
