Du Vent

  • 45'
  • 2000
  • Blaine, Washington, United States
  • $189,000


"Du Vent" is a fantastic, large gem of a boat from the world's biggest sailboat builder. This Jeanneau 45.2 is equally comfortable at anchor or on the dock, or offshore sailing. Consider the large sail inventory (with furling Main and a classic main, large genoa and 2 assymetrical spinnakers), the large cockpit and twin helms, not to mention a full array of electronics. 

However, she is also a very comfortable boat to entertain plenty of family and friends. She has three cabins (The master cabin is forward and has it's own head), has very large salon seating for 6-8, and a galley that runs nearly ten feet long with plenty of storage. Finally, her cockpit is another great space, with plenty of seating, teak varnished table, long benches covered with teak and with cushions. 

Features include:

  • Updated Raymarine & Lawrence electronics.
  • 58 HP Yanmar with only 1,000 hours, super clean
  • Beautiful teak finish interior, feel rich & comfortable
  • 3 cabin, 2 head version
  • Great deck layout - Wide side decks, large cockpit, easy to walk on and off from stern
  • OPTIONAL - "Like New" Winter boat cover for the entire boat, in great condition.

"From the elegant owner's stateroom forward, to the in-line galley, to the functional navigation station tucked away to starboard, the 45.2 features a stylish, roomy and innovative layout. [...] On deck, the 45.2 combines Jeanneau's trademark clean, modern lines with an easy-to-handle, all-furling sailplan controlled from the huge aft cockpit." - Sailing Magazine

"The 45.2's cockpit, meanwhile, has party written all over it. Centrestage is a laminated teak table with drink holders and a built-in icebox. The table is enormous when the leaves are opened out. Comfortably angled cockpit seats beg to be slept on and port and starboard cockpit lockers are generous in size. [...] 

...[E]asy access to knee-high swing doors at the stern. Swing the doors open and it's a simple step down to a swim platform where cruising crew members can sit and trail their feet in the water on a hot day.

Sun worshipping and swimming is further helped by a telescopic swim ladder and there's a freshwater shower to wash the saltwater away, while a split backstay further improves stern access." - Boat Point Australia
