SOTERIA | Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 440 | 44ft


Portsmouth, RI, US


The Jeanneau 440 is a thoroughly modern yet eminently practical design with a mix of easy and spirited sailing performance, great looks and features today’s sailors’ demand. And this late model Jeanneau 440 SOTERIA, built in 2019, is a particularly nice example of her class, having benefited from knowledgeable ownership (many optional upgrades and custom features) and professional management and service combined with light seasonal usage.

SOTERIA is easy to maneuver and dock thanks to a retractable bow thruster and twin wheels and rudders, and easy to sail thanks to several electric winches with in-mast furling and a sensible layout for short-handing. She has a shoal draft keel with bulb, ideal for US east coast and Bahamas usage and is equipped with extras like generator and AC, custom Sunbrella cockpit bimini and dodger, new custom stainless tender davits and outboard motor lift, a full Raymarine electronics package including radar and a chain counter - all designed to make life aboard more comfortable and manageable. And for anyone thinking of seasonal use only, there is a custom KKMI canvas cover to boot.

This is the popular three cabin / two head layout with a proper nav station, large galley and super comfy U-settee with convertible table in the salon. Access to the forward master cabin is via two doors, which when (both) open, provide an incredible sense of space, airflow and light throughout the interior of the vessel.

And last but not least: the ginormous (!!) cockpit with room for a gaggle of family and friends - easily accessed from unique side decks which taper down aft to each side of the cockpit (so no crawling or stepping over large obstructions) and from between the twin wheels aft via the amazing fold-down transom and swim platform. Bravo!

SOTERIA is competitively priced, shows beautifully and is presented with all commissioning work complete - ready for launch, survey and immediate use. Under the same professional care since new - with any new boat kinks worked out - her condition and mix of features will not disappoint!

The cockpit is simply amazing on this boat. Centered by a large double drop-leaf teak table with built-in cooler and storage, there is an L-settee to starboard and a generous straight settee to port. The custom dodger provides ample protection from the elements and along with the custom bimini and connector creates a rather large area protected from rain and sun. The twin helm areas aft are well laid out for sailing and docking with all sail handling and engine controls within easy reach. Walkways to the sloped side decks - a unique feature of this design - in combination with the electric fold-down transom and swim platform - make egress to and from the cockpit and the dock or another vessel, and of course from the water, truly exceptional.
