Jeanneau Sun Oddessy 36.2

Ok I have given up on the Beneteau that I was orginally interested in. The repairs were more than I wanted to undertake and it sold so god bless the new owner.
I have looked at a Jeanneau Sun Oddessy 36.2 It is in need of TLC but has no major issues. I have the benefit of a full survey and sea trial done at a previous buyers expense.
What are they opinions of the boat. We will be using it for weekends around the Virgins and a week or two cruise a couple of times a year. The boat is very basic in systems. 12 V Plate fridge. Almost nonexist 110. It has a shore power cord wired directly to a charger, installed by the charter company to keep the batteries topped off at the dock. The boat was a bare boat charter boat for five years then the owner has used it six months a year for the last three years. It has the normal cosmetic issues you would expect based on its age.
Also the yanmar has 6000 hours on it. How does this stack up. The transmision was replaced three years ago. Sails are average. The jib needs some repair to the sail cover.
I can buy the boat for $20000 less than the current survey value.
Jay

The real issue is whether the boat is worth to you what they're willing to accept. If not, then keep looking... if so, then buy it.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

If review is to be believed, you can go offshore with this boat. The Jeanneaus from the late 90's, IMHO do seem to be a bit more stout than the later models, so it is possible you could do more than coastal cruise as you are going to do.

For your use, it is no different than what the charter company was selling this boat to do in charter service.

SO now as SD mentions, are the issues etc you see with this boat, worth what you are paying etc in the end.

For more info on Jeanneaus,
