2017 Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 44 DS

Annapolis, Maryland



Designed for relaxation and exceptional comfort, the Sun Odyssey 44DS also delivers the thrill of responsive sailing. On deck and underway, this model features easy, responsive sailing for a short-handed crew. The cockpit is perfect for gathering with friends or family, while twin helm stations with centralized sail handling and electric winches make sailing a joy. 

“MARAVILLA” is a beautiful example of the Jeanneau 44 Deck Saloon. A 2017 model, she is the preferred three-cabin version. She features an island centerline king berth aft, a centerline queen berth cabin forward, and a second cabin with bunk beds on port aft of that. Her owners have made extensive upgrades to her and kept her in superb condition, so you would be hard pressed to find a better choice.

A sampling of her more notable features include:

  • King size centerline master stateroom 
  • Yanmar 57HP sail drive engine with Flex-O-Fold 3-blade propellor
  • Harken Rewind electric self-tailing primary and halyard winches

Accommodations- Vessel Walk-Thru

Forward VIP stateroom:  The forward stateroom features a roomy 82” x 64” berth with storage beneath it and narrow fiddled shelves along both hullsides running the length of the berth. The berth is positioned low, so it’s simply a matter of sitting down rather than climbing up and in.

Aft of the berth on starboard there is a double doored locker, with half dedicated to hanging space and shelving in the other half. Above is fiddled shelf space. Headroom in this cabin is 6’3”; there are three overhead lights, two reading lights, two hullside ports and an overhead hatch for lighting and ventilation.

Guest cabin:  The guest cabin is on port and just forward of the salon. The bunks are opposing and offset from each other. There is a nightstand locker at the forward end with a fiddled top on it. Each bunk has a reading light and there is an overhead hatch for ventilation. Headroom in here is 6’3”.

Forward head:  The ensuite forward head is located on starboard. As you enter, the sink is directly ahead of you. The look, as with the rest of the boat is simple and contemporary. The composite sink is spacious and has a locker beneath it. Above the sink is a mirror with a light; there are matching medicine cabinets framing the mirror on either side. 

To the right of the sink is the shower and toilet space. There are folding smoke Plexiglass panels that open up to separate the shower and sink areas. Lighting and ventilation are provided by two LED lights and an overhead hatch. Headroom is 6'2" at the sink and 6'4" in the shower.

Salon: The lines in the salon are as everywhere else on the 44DS- clean, open and elegant, with beautiful wood finishes and lots of recessed and natural light. The 6’5” headroom contributes even more to the feeling of spaciousness.

On the starboard side is a dinette table that can accommodate five adults. The table can be lowered to create a very large double berth. There is storage beneath the seat cushions and behind the back cushions along the hull. Above and behind the back cushions is a shelf and four drop-front lockers that run the length of the settee. Above the lockers is a shelf with a stainless-steel rail fiddle to keep things in place. Behind that shelf are a pair of hullside ports, with curtains that can stow within the recess for the ports.

Across on port is a long bench settee, with a chaise lounge cushion on the forward end. There is storage beneath and behind these cushions as well. As on starboard, there is a shelf behind the back cushions, three drop-front lockers above that with another fiddled shelf above the lockers and two more hullside ports with curtains.   

The deck saloon fixed lights wrap the salon/nav/galley space and all have accordion shades. There are opposing double hatches on centerline, two hatches over the nav station side, two over the aft end of the dinette/galley area and one more aft in the galley, so there’s plenty of good ventilation regardless of the wind angle. A recessed handrail overhead provides safe passage fore and aft in a seaway. There are eight recessed LED lights overhead for additional lighting as well as floor courtesy lighting for at night. 

Nav station: The nav station is on port and aft facing, utilizing the aft end of the settee. The desktop is leather covered and has a lifting top, providing an exceptional amount of storage space not usually found in a nav station. There is a locker with custom storage below the desk, a shelf outboard and a drop-front locker above. Electronics and electrical panels are easy to reach and along the hull side.

Galley: The L-shaped galley is located on starboard and with its abundant storage perfect for cruising. The countertops and double sinks are a one-piece composite, with fiddles for handholds while underway; the sinks are oriented facing forward and have a sliding cover that flips open to provide a little more space and a place for cleaning supplies while doing dishes. On the centerline end of the sink is a drawer and a pull-out trash bin; beneath the sink are two large drawers. 

Moving around along the hull there is a front and top loading refrigerator and freezer space with sliding wire bin storage. Aft of that is the two-burner stove and oven; a large drop-front locker beneath the stove provides great pots and pans storage. To the right of the stove is a pull-out custom rack storage unit.

Behind the countertop along the hull side there are four drop-door lockers that provide loads of storage. Headroom in the galley is 6’6”; there are two overhead lights and two overhead hatches.

Aft head: The aft head can be accessed from the saloon or the master stateroom. Entering from the saloon, the sink and counter are a one-piece composite construction to your right and along the hull. Below the sink is a locker and above it a large mirror, with medicine cabinets on either side of the mirror. Bifold Plexiglass panels open and enclose this as the shower area, with an adjustable shower wand on a bar opposite the sink. Aft of the sink is the toilet, which is electric and seawater flush. There is a countertop that can hinge down above the toilet for additional counter space or a work bench top. Headroom in here is 6’10”. There is a fixed light port, an overhead and a mirror light and an overhead hatch for ventilation. 

Aft master stateroom: The full width master stateroom is absolutely gorgeous. The King size 80” x 74” centerline berth has seating on either side. Next to each side of the bed are leather topped surfaces with storage beneath them and table lamps. Outboard of those are four drop storage lockers that run the length of the berth, with shelving space above them. Forward of that on port is a tall locker with shelves and a fiddled shelf above it. On starboard there is a tall hanging locker with double doors and a fiddled shelf above that as well.   Across from the foot of the bed is the engine box, which has a fiddled counter space and a locker above that.

With the beam carried far aft and the cockpit sole raised, the cabin is very spacious and open feeling, with good space above the bed as well. 

Ventilation and lighting are great, with two hullside windows and three opening ports, including one behind the head of the bed. Headroom is 6’1” on either side and 5’4” in the walk-thru portion.
