Jeanneau - 342
- Stock #061469 -
This vessel was SOLD on February 26.
While Jeanneau's production yachts don't stretch the boundaries of yacht design, they certainly honor traditional values. Rather than being showy and daring, these yachts are fun to sail and functional to live aboard. Pitched as upmarket, stylish and strong craft, Jeanneau's hulls are quite unlike that of some production yachts. These hulls are hand-laid with fully glassed-in bulkheads, stringers and cross-frames. Combined with all-teak interiors - cut by a computer which claims accuracy to within 0.1mm - Jeanneau yachts come with a five-year fully transferable hull guarantee. Indeed, the Sun Odyssey 34.2 was deemed the fastest selling yacht in Europe. Incredibly, 250-odd sailed out of dealership floors in a year. Well-priced and roomy, the Jacque Faroux-designed all-rounder looks set to achieve greatness here as well. Deep and wide, the Sun Odyssey 34.2 is a high-volume handy-sized yacht with a keenness to sail and room to share the fun. Though its deck hasn't the bold curves and bumps of other French yachts, its styling is still contemporary if not utilitarian. The teak-lined cockpit is a good size, with a walk-through transom, handy boarding platform and user-friendly moldings. The wheel, which comes with a big-boat binnacle for mounting gauges and compass, is flanked by L-shaped benches and comfortably-flat outer decks. Able to seat at least six adults, the cockpit rolls into a flat coach house and past shrouds and genoa tracks mounted inboard. With integrated handrails and halyards on the coach house, moving forward in a head sea should be both tangle- and tumble-free. Worth mentioning are a deep anchor locker, optional windlass, and pulpit offering support for the bowman. Aft, the cockpit lockers are tremendously deep and include gas bottle and liferaft storage. And there's a freshwater deck shower, which is all you need if you're Gallic and sassy. . Down below, through the plexiglass hatch, there's a strong teak influence. Any fears one might have of the boat being dim are eclipsed by the big saloon windows, hatches (with retractable screens), and halogen down lights. Headroom is at least 6 feet. The saloon includes a stylish semi-circular lounge around an elliptical table. The inboard side of the lounge has a sliding bench seat that can be tucked under the dinette to ensure free passage through to the forepeak cabin and plenty of room to cook up a storm. Nice touches include a drinks cabinet, saloon cabinets and handholds to help your crew and galley slaves move about in a seaway. There's a small nav station conveniently located near the companionway and the helm on the starboard side tails off the lounge.
The linear galley along the portside of the saloon is bigger than you'll find tucked away in most 34-footers. Big on teak cabinet and pantry space, it comes equipped with a fridge, two-burner gimballed stove/oven, twin stainless sinks and a useful amount of counter top space. Sleepyheads will find it a toss-up between the forepeak cabin and the aft double cabin on the starboard side. There's storage under the berth, in a deep hanging locker with shelving, and in a separate cupboard. While the walls are teak-lined, the floor is carpeted and the 6 foot headroom is impressive for a 34-footer. . It gains in stability and has a bigger mattress. There's a hanging locker and storage on a shelf, and access to the 27hp Yanmar engine, battery, steering, fuel and water tanks. Most impressive is the bathroom (it's much more than just a head) located near the companionway on the starboard side. Commodious and fully molded, it features a big basin, clothes hook, towel rail, mirrors, storage cupboards, twin portholes, manual head and a terrific hanging locker which lets you hang and drain your foulies. Perfect for day sailing, cruising and racing around the cans with a few cans, the 34.2's two-cabin layout suits the owner/operator who wants something easy to berth.
