Boat Details


What can be said about Jeanneau's 42DS!? Still considered by many to be the ultimate Couples Cruising Yacht, the design continues to offer class leading levels of space and comfort.

"Highland Bear" is the latest generation of the design, with an upgraded lighter wood finish, and improved detailing throughout. Built in 2009 with a 2010 model year, her one and only owner has maintained a high level of upkeep, with purely light usage since new. 

Her Flag Blue Hull and stunning teak decks will turn heads wherever she goes! We highly encourage early viewings to appreciate all she offers.
