This Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 37.2 is a good sailing but easy to handle boat due to the rolling sails and the bow thruster. The boat has spacious and extremely comfortable accommodation. This one is the two cabin version. The beds measure a minimum of 2.00 m. and a headroom of approx. 195 cm. at the cabin entrance can be called generous. Comfort enhancing features such as refrigerator, oven, boiler, shower and stove are of course available.
Mast and rigging have been replaced in 2012 and all sail handling can be done from the cockpit. On deck you can easily move around and the spacious cockpit is sheltered and the seating is good. The cockpit tent enlarges the accommodation considerably and this allows you to sit "outside" in less beautiful weather. The swimming platform makes anchoring at a nice spot a party and to keep it that way there is an electric anchor winch available. The seat at the steering position can easily be folded away so you don't have to hang around with a large piece of polyester of which you don't know where to put it. In no time at all you have a free passage to the swimming platform.
This Jeanneau is now of the 2nd owners since 2004 and they have always taken good care of the boat. Their sailing area was South England, France, Denmark, Zeeland, Wadden and IJsselmeer.
Among other things, Banjer is equipped with:
- Heavier and well-maintained 50 hp. engine with water-lubricated propeller shaft and three-bladed propeller
- Vetus bow thruster for relaxed parking in the box or lock
- Mainsail, genoa, high aspect and gennaker with trunk
- Underdeck Furlex genuaroller
- Tube hood with cockpit tent
- Mast replaced in 2012
- Replace complete stay in 2012
- GPS with repeater, handheld GPS, Furuno radar, ST50 Tridata, Wind and VMG. ST50 multidisplay at the chart table
- Raymarine autopilot with remote control
- 2 x Mariphone
- Large boiler and shower with drain pump
- Three-burner stove with oven and very large refrigerator
- Eberspacher stove
- Extra water tank
- Electric anchor windlass and Bruce anchor
- Four virtually new batteries
- Deck wash installation with hose
- Middle bollards
- Complete sailing equipment, charts, guides, spare parts and tools
In short, a very complete Sun Odyssey 37.2 to experience new adventures. The current owners have always maintained the boat well. Much to their regret they stop sailing so much remains on board which you don't have to buy yourself. The mainsail is in need of replacement, the canvas of the sprayhood is poor and the insulation of the engine compartment is letting go. The ST50 Tridata works but does not indicate correctly and those who want to dot the i's will have to polish the hull and superstructure again.
This Jeanneau can be visited in Almere by appointment where the owner accompanies the viewings. The Jeanneau 37.2 is designed by Jacques Fauroux (Aloa's, Dufour's, several Beneteau's etc.) and built by the famous Jeanneau shipyard from France. This shipyard belongs to the Beneteau group and is now one of the largest builders of sailing yachts in the world. Since 1964 many tens of thousands of sailing boats have been built here and have found their way all over the world. Sounding names like the Poker, Sangria, Aquila, Rush and the Sun Odyssey and Sun Fast series left the Jeanneau shipyard. More information about this shipyard can be found at www.jeanneau.fr .

The Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 37 has been delivered in different layouts. This Jeanneau has a large round seat, long kitchen, a very spacious wet room with good headroom and two cabins. Because of the many windows and hatches it is pleasantly light in the interior. Upon entering the boat the chart table is to starboard. Here are the switchboard, the radio and various instruments. The headroom here is approx. 1.95 meters. Opposite the card table is the spacious wet room. It is equipped with an inner mould to prevent moisture from entering the room. In the wet room is the toilet, a sink with mixer tap and a shower with drain pump. There is enough space for storing toiletries and an open window for ventilation. Between the wet room and the galley is a handy wet room cupboard. The aft cabin has a bed with a maximum length of 200 cm and a width of 180 cm and a large wardrobe. There are two windows that can be opened for good ventilation.
To starboard in the saloon is the round seat. Under the seats and behind the railings is storage space and a large bottle rack. Above the benches there are also lockers. Through the hull windows you also have a nice view outside while sitting in the cabin. The cabin table can be lowered to create an extra bed. Cushions for this are available. Opposite the saloon is the galley with lots of work space and all the comforts of home. There is a three burner stove with oven, a very large top loading fridge and two sinks with mixer tap. Also here is plenty of storage space for everything you want to have at hand. Also in the bench near the galley there is still storage space.
Beyond the main bulkhead is the front cabin. The bed here is 213 cm. long and has a largest width of 190 cm. In front of the bed is a lot of space with a handy seat for changing clothes. In the front cabin is also plenty of storage space and there is a washbasin with mixer tap.
Because of the available stove it is also in the early and late season still comfortable on board which extends the sailing season and the interior is permanently ventilated but it is also good by the many windows and shutters to open. The hatches are equipped with blackout blinds. There are 220V sockets in various places and there are sufficient light points. Sliding hatch and entrance hatch are made of transparent plastic, so you are not so "locked" inside.
