"Marco" is a 4 cabin 2 head version of Jeanneau's popular Sun Odyssey 45.1 line from 1997. Never chartered. Complete refit 2019. There is plenty of headroom and space inside as well as outside in the wide, super spacious cockpit with direct access to the water. Perfect for outdoor living in the tropics. The solid construction quality with Kevlar fibre reinforcements on these boats explain in part the immense success of Jeanneau in the rental fleets of the 1990s and 2000s. On the hull side, the ribs, reinforcements and bulkheads are generously dimensioned, and the rigging anchoring points are solidly attached. With its broad beam, strong bow and still slender look, it's a powerful monohull that is still sought after on the second-hand market today.    The boat went through a major refit and upgrade in 2019 in Denmark and is now really well-equipped with some of the newest and best available gear for increased comfort, performance and safety. After a rebuild of the layout in the front cabins and saloon area the boat now sleeps 8 people very comfortably plus 2 extras in the sofa area. She was sailed from Europe to French Polynesia arriving here in September 2020.   

A Word from the Owners:  "We are a Canadian family of 5 and purchased Marco last year to cruise French Polynesia and beyond, but have to return home to Canada in August. She has been an amazing boat and we are sorry to let her go. The boat can be delivered to Fiji or Hawaii, or remain in French Polynesia until September under current 2 year cruising permit. Permit can be renewed by leaving for 90 days or the boat can be 'Papeetized' and stay in French Polynesia. Best options for delivery or importation can be discussed. Marco is a turn-key cruiser, in excellent shape and ready to continue her bluewater sailing adventure, fully equipped and ready to go anywhere." Tahiti. July 2022.
