Re: Jeanneau 42DS
We have a 2012 and love it having used it now for two full seasons. In mast furling main has worked flawlessly, California king in aft cabin more comfortable than my bed at home. Lots of room in cockpit. Easily sailed by my wife and I (without much previous experience I might add). Can't much comment on performance, this is the first sailboat we've owned. Doesn't seem to sail as close to the wind as other boats on the lake but we did not buy it for performance. Negatives...interior wood (veneer) attractive to our eye but easily nicked and scratched. Make sure your guests are aware or the different levels in the cabin floor.
