Jeanneau SO 41DS - 2013
Sailboat Name: Celtic Tide
In typical Jeanneau fashion, the 41' deck saloon model is sleek looking, respectably fast, easy to sail and quite stable. Celtic Tide sports an electric primary winch on the coach roof to port of the companionway which always helps make a sailor's life a little less strenuous.
From stem to stern, she's a well designed yacht with perhaps one or two small foibles not really worth mentioning. You'll step through the transom from the drop down swim platform and up to the twin helm stations. Foreward of the helm is a standard drop leaf table with built in drink well and there's the normal storage space below the seats for snorkel gear and water toys. Fenders are easily stored in the deeper locker aft, which serves as the port side helm seat.
At first glance, I thought something was a little "off" in the cockpit ... something was missing. I soon realized it was the normal clutter of lines on the cockpit sole or tangle of lines draped somewhere around the companionway. There wasn't any! Further investigation revealed the lines all lead to a recessed locker in the cockpit sole, directly in front of the companionway entrance. Flip up the lid and low and behold, there are the line tails and the winch handle as well. No clutter of any kind in the cockpit. Brilliant!
Moving forward, inboard shrouds make passage to the bow pretty simple. The electric windlass is neatly recessed in the anchor locker and controlled remotely from the cockpit. In other words, she's very easy to single hand. All hatches are nicely recessed, while cleats and deck hardware have been sensibly placed away from any main passageways and bare feet.
Below decks, she feels a lot bigger than I would have expected. You'll find a plethora of fixed portlights running the length of the main salon and numerous opening hatches in the coach roof.
To starboard of the companionway stairs is the L-shaped galley. The very cool double sink features a piano hinged, folding counter top that provides a great prep area when the sink isn't being used. Fold it in two, push it back and you have a nice little shelf behind the sink that doubles as a splash guard and gives you a wonderful little shelf to drain your veggies or store your dish liquid and sponge. The swivel faucet has an extension hose which comes in handy too.
The top opening fridge/freezer is huge and quite deep. It comes complete with an electric pump to drain off any spilled liquids or melted ice water. There's sufficient cupboard space for pretty much everything you'll need and a microwave is available for any time you decide to visit a marina with shore power. There's also a shore side air conditioning unit for any really hot nights. Stop in to Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbour, go tour the island and enjoy a nice cool night's sleep.
The main salon is lovely and features a large lounge area with a three seater settee and navigation station on the port side and u-shaped settee on starboard. An electric hi-lo table folds in two for use as a cocktail table or rotates and folds out full length for use as a dinner table. If needed, the table lowers down to seat height to serve as an extra large double berth should you wish to bring the kids along.
The forward v-berth cabin is very nicely appointed with a queen berth, aviation style window blinds, lots of light and opening ports for ventilation. It also has it's own private head with shower. Not too shabby.
The star of the show on this boat is the aft cabin with stand up headroom where it matters. This cabin features a massive berth, excellent hanging locker space and to cap it off, there is a large opening port on the transom providing terrific flow through ventilation.
The en suite head with shower is well sized and the shower is separated from the rest of the head by two plexi-panels that close off the wet area from the dry area. All in all, this sailboat is a winner!
Note: ASA Sailing lessons (levels 101, 103 and 104) are available aboard this yacht. Candidates must be at least 12 years of age or over to acquire bareboat certification.
