'A B Sea', a Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 45-1 for Sale

We have lived aboard 'A B Sea', our 1995 Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 45-1, for five years. She has always been privately owned (never chartered). She is a turnkey cruiser and comes with a renewable marina contract in Finike Marina, Turkey.

As a liveaboard boat, 'A B Sea' has at least €20,000 of additions that are not included in many other boats of this type currently on the market.

The Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 45-1 is a sturdy turnkey boat fit for liveaboards. She's in excellent condition, with an abundance of inclusions, plus a highly sought-after marina contract. All to make you feel absolutely at home.
