Professionally maintained/managed and superbly presented 3-cabin 2-heads example of this very popular deck saloon cruising boat. Heating, in-mast furling, bowthruster, Raymarine electronics etc.




*** Over 150 further high resolution photos available on request ***


Launched in 2008 and with just two owners since new and professionally maintained in her current ownership, OMERTA has been used for a mixture of private family sailing along with some occasional commercial usage. Coded for charter up until the end of February 2020, her coding could easily be reinstated for a future owner, or she could simply be enjoyed for family and long-distance cruising.


With a fantastic light and spacious interior thanks to her deck saloon profile, OMERTA benefits from the most popular 3-cabin, 2-heads layout with owner’s cabin forward. On deck, she is easily handled by the smallest of crews thanks to her inmast furling mainsail, twin helms, electric halyard winch and bowthruster.


Her cruising specification highlights include:

  • 3-cabins, 2-heads interior layout.
  • Yanmar 4JH4-TE - 75hp diesel engine.
  • In-mast furling main sail – replaced 2016.
  • Roller furling genoa – replaced 2014.
  • GRP decks and white gelcoat topsides for minimal maintenance.
  • Bowthruster.
  • Electric anchor windlass with chain counter.
  • 2.2m draft keel for improved windward performance.
  • Radar and chartplotter.
  • Electric flush heads.
  • TV/DVD.
  • FM/AM Radio with CD player with cockpit and saloon speakers.
  • Twin heating systems.
  • Ocean Air blinds to deck the saloon.
  • Recently replaced sprayhood.
  • Recently replaced batteries.
  • Bimini.
  • Fridge and freeze.
  • Liferaft.
  • Professionally maintained and managed under her current ownership.


OMERTA is now offered for sale due to her owner’s a lack of time with their busy family life. OMERTA is UK VAT paid and British Registered.




“This magnificent, seaworthy sailboat is rigged with a furling mainsail and genoa, for easy handling with a short-handed crew. On the high seas, you will feel completely secure. On the interior, the Sun Odyssey 45 DS delivers a new concept of space. With a raised deckhouse designed by Garroni Designers and attractive wrap-around windows built into the deck plan, as well as curved lines and oversized portholes in the hull, living spaces are flooded with natural light.”


Extract taken from the Jeanneau website.




“The Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 45DS had options for shallow draught or a deeper, high-performance setup. We tested the performance option, so she had plenty of power over a long waterline, giving her a good turn of speed. In light conditions and off the wind she handles like a much smaller boat than she is.

She is a high-volume cruiser with ample space to live aboard, but this entails some sacrifice in her handling of stronger wind. Weight has been kept down to keep her light and responsive and her good form stability compensates for this, but with a ballast displacement ratio of just under 30 per cent, she can be tender once a blow gets up. This isn’t a problem as long as you reef early and sail her reasonably flat. The newer 44DS has been stiffened up by a seven per cent increase in her ballast: displacement ratio. There is acres of space on deck, so she is great boat for warmer climates, or for shorter cruises with friends and family. The sails and helm are easily handled, so she won’t scare less-experienced crew, but with the ability to cover plenty of miles she should keep keen sailors happy.


She isn’t a true deck saloon as the saloon table is slightly too low to give its occupants a 360° view. Not that this is matters as there is ample light and the views from the hull ports make the saloon a genuinely pleasant place to while away an evening at anchor. Her space on deck and numerous opening hatches would make her a comfortable choice in the Mediterranean, but two Webasto heaters on the test boat would be enough to keep her cabins toasty warm even in winter.


We tested the three-cabin version where the owners’ cabin is forward. It’s pleasant and private with adequate space. The saloon table had two folding leaves, with shallow grooves in place of real fiddles and there’s certainly space for at least six round the table. There’s plenty of stowage in the cabins, saloon, and even under the sole in the bilge. On a rainy day there would be enough space to relax without being on top of each other.

The Sun Odyssey 45DS is a competent, well-rounded and homely boat that is more than capable of cruising UK waters, the Mediterranean or further afield to the trade winds. Some might find her cockpit exposed and her handling too tender in a real blow, preferring to opt for something with more protection and better at plugging away to windward. She is a large boat, with high topsides, so getting to the pontoon during berthing manoeuvres could be tricky if flexibility or speed is an issue. She is very well thought out and set up, though, so a couple can easily handle her. Second-hand, she offers a lot of boat for the money. If you sail to relax during weekends and holidays and get a good few miles in, rather than testing your endurance in a hooley, then this boat could be just the one for you.”
