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. 

“SUNDAY KINDA LOVE” is a beautiful example of the Jeanneau 44 Deck Saloon. A 2012 model, she wasn’t commissioned until 2014 and shows very light use. A two cabin version, she features an island centerline queen berth with a desk and ensuite head forward and an island centerline king berth aft. Her owner has made a number of upgrades to her and kept her in superb condition, so you would be hard pressed to find a better choice.

A few of her more notable features include:

Whatever your plans are, if you are looking for an exceptionally maintained boat in the 40’ to 50’ range, “SUNDAY KINDA LOVE” is certainly worthy of your personal inspection- you won’t be disappointed.

Forward VIP stateroom:The forward stateroom features a centerline queen berth that is a roomy 82” x 64”, with step-ups on either side and storage beneath it. The berth is positioned low, however, so it’s simply a matter of sitting down rather than climbing up and in. On either side is a nightstand and a reading light, as well as hullside windows with solid sliding shades for privacy. Tall fiddled shelves line the hullsides above and the length of the berth. 

Aft of the berth on starboard there is a tall locker with shelving inside and a fiddled shelf above it. On port there is a leather topped desk with computer storage and a vertical locker beneath. Aft of the desk is a hanging locker, with a fiddled shelf above that 

Across from the desk on starboard is entry into the ensuite head as well as a full length dressing mirror.

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.

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.

Saloon:The lines in the saloon 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 flip table top that can accommodate eight adults. The table is operated via an electric pedestal and can be positioned for dining, as a coffee table or to create an additional 85” x 56” 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 saloon/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 hand rail 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 desk top is leather covered and has two lifting tops, providing an exceptional amount of storage space not usually found in a nav station. There is a cubby outboard on the hull 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. Beneath the nav desk and aft is a large door which, when opened, reveals an additional refrigerator/freezer to augment the one in the galley.

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 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 wire rack storage unit.

Behind the countertop along the hull side there are six drop-door lockers that provide loads of storage. An additional refrigerator is located beneath the nav station. 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 fresh water 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 80” x 74” centerline berth is two inches narrower than a king and 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 four opening ports, including two behind the head of the bed. Headroom is 6’1” on either side and 5’4” in the walk-thru portion.
