The Jeanneau 54DS was the Jeanneau flagship vessel at the time and was then built to their highest Jeanneau standards. A performance hull, combined with full luxury for the most demanding of sailors and their guests.
The versatile of the 3 or 4 cabin layout allows for great flexibility and their enormous cockpit is truly a pleasure to either sail, or socialize in.
Set up for short handed sailing, bow thruster, twin helms and integrated electronics allow this 54 footer to be sailed much easier than many would think. Speed, yet a sea kindly motion only helps us appreciate our passion more which hopefully will do nothing other than have you spending more and more time aboard, more time sailing and doing just what you set out to do.
This is a one owner vessel from new and used lightly as an owner operated crewed charter boat. Her extremely knowledgeable owners have kept her in tip top condition and have spared absolutely no expense when maintaining and upgrading her. She is in truly exceptional condition throughout and is surely one of the best on the market today and at an amazing price. Summer dry storage fully reserved for this year, right here on Tortola.
(4 modular Cabins / 4 Heads, plus skipper Cabin / 1 Head)
Most forward is the forepeak skipper cabin with 2 bunks, a handbasin / shower, manual Jabsco head with storage room and shelved units to port and starboard with more storage and cupboard below and to starboard. The bunks can be folded away, providing a huge storage area. The access is via a large lockable foredeck hatch.
The forward master cabin has a centerline queen berth. There are 4 large drawers under the berth and additional storage spaces below the berth as well as 2 large shelves and 2 hanging lockers to port and starboard. There are 2 ensuite head compartments that each include a full size Jabsco QuietFlush electric head with a built in holding tank, sink and shower, and storage shelves behind the mirrors. This master cabin can easily and quickly be converted into 2 cabins with double berths and an ensuite head. All the panels required for the conversion are stored in a dedicated locker under the berth and the conversion takes less than 20 minutes to complete.
Moving aft and into the main salon we find two settees to port with a cocktail bar between them and a removable coffee table inboard. Opposite and to starboard is the dining area with a spacious C shaped settee surrounding the foldable dining table. Inboard of the dining table are 2 standalone chairs. The dining area can seat a total of 8 guests.
The U shaped galley is further aft in the salon and to port, with drawers and cupboards forward and inboard as well as double sinks with a large dish draining box out board of the sinks that has a lid for added security at sea. Central and outboard in the galley is the 4 burner ENO stove followed by the front opening refrigerator and, most aft, the top opening freezer. There is ample counter top space for preparing meals, as well as plenty of eye level cabinets outboard for additional storage. There is a built in dishwasher under the sinks powered by a dedicated inverter allowing the dishwasher to operate without turning the generator on. There is an extractor fan fitted above the stove and a brand new microwave fitted into the cabinetry at eye level.
Opposite the galley and aft of the dining area is the navigation station to starboard. There is a forward facing chart table with 3 drawers below and a separate navigator’s seat aft. Navigational equipment is mounted forward and outboard of the chart table with the breaker panel mounted outboard. There is a washing machine with condensing dryer mounted under the navigator’s seat. Further aft of the navigation station is a large larder with shelves.
Further aft are the two aft cabins to port and starboard, each with ensuite heads. Both heads have full size Jabsco QuietFlush toilets with a built in holding tank, a handbasin and shower, and storage shelves behind the glass mirrors. Further aft of the ensuite head compartments are the oversized double berths, side shelved units, cupboard and a hanging locker, as well as plenty of floor changing space and under bed storage. Each double berth can be easily converted to have 2 twin berths in a matter of minutes. Alternatively, the 2 aft cabins can be converted into a single king sized berth with a settee (or single berth if required) out board to port and starboard, all in one enormous aft cabin (by way of removing the bulkhead between the two cabins), offering amazing versatility in the sleeping arrangements that are possible.
There are 2 large storage lockers in the cockpit and 2 enormous lazarettes allowing for the storage of all lines and fenders, snorkeling / dive gear, water toys, etc.
