Jeanneau Sun Dance 36 - 1990 - £33,950 NEW LISTING.
Originally marketed as the Sun Dance 36, this design was subsequently re-designated as the Sun Odyssey 36 by Jeanneau in line with their other, more family cruising orientated models just two years after its introduction to the market. With overall concepts by J&J Design and utilising hull design and sail plans by Daniel Andrieu, the Sun Dance 36 was an immediate hit, offering as it does, a huge amount of accommodation for her size, while featuring performance features such as the semi-elliptical keel. and reliable skeg-supported rudder.
Boasting three separate sleeping cabins, two heads and a spacious, comfortable saloon, this is a fantastic family cruiser. The wide and comfortable cockpit is laid out so as to be clear of lines a real bonus with younger children on board or for straightforward for uncluttered convenience in the cockpit.

Three sleeping cabins, independent of the main saloon, provide berths for six people, while a large oval sitting area, to starboard, within the main saloon is designed to be converted to provide a fourth double berth, with the table being adjustable for height on its pedestal (the in-filling cushions are currently stowed under the forward cabin's berth). The original, larger oval table has been replaced with a smaller rectangular one of solid Oak, offering more convenient access around the table, but the Jeanneau-supplied table is stored with the vendor and will be returned to the vessel upon sale completion.
A linear galley runs along the forward two-thirds of the port side of the main saloon, ahead of a forward-facing and independent chart table.
The galley features a large, top-opening, refrigerated cool box, gimballing cooker, two stainless steel sinks and relatively large storage lockers above and below the work surfaces and one of the opening hull ports immediately outboard of the cooker, thereby ensuring anyone working in the galley is not entirely divorced from a view of the anchorage and some degree of ventilation for cooking vapours.
Good light values and plenty of ventilation are assured by hull ports being fitted within each cabin; three overhead hatches running along the centre-line above the main saloon and relatively large, opening portlights to each of the heads compartments.
The latter are located aft, to either side of the companionway, but with that to starboard only accessible from that side's aft cabin ('en-suite'), while the heads to port features an access door for general [day] use as well as the private en-suite link to the aft cabin on that side too. Both compartments feature a hot & cold water shower.
The engine is located approximately amidships, beneath the aft end of the saloon seating, therefor the aft cabins have not been compromised for the sake of access to the engine and are a mirror image of each other in terms of size.
Although original manufacturer (OEM) provision for a AC electrical system was originally made, with tallied switches fitted in the chart table area, the current owners use a simple shore support cable with UK spec. three-pin outlet for a basic portable battery charger to maintain the batteries while moored in marinas. However, there is an immersion heater fitted within the domestic, hot-water tank.
A Yanmar 3GM30F diesel (rated at approx. 27 HP) is fitted above the aft end of the keel, within an acoustically insulated cover. that forms part of the oval seating arrangement within the main saloon.
The engine drives a two-bladed, folding propeller through a conventional stainless steel shaft. A lip seal 'dripless gland' by Volvo Penta is fitted to the inboard end of the sterntube.
All-round access to the engine is a notable feature of the design arrangements and will be considered to be a blessing by anyone with experience of even the most minor inspection and/or maintenance of engines fitted to many current designs.
An engine hour meter, located at the chart table recorded 1100.2 hours of running time at time of writing (the accuracy of such reading cannot been verified}.
Three lead acid batteries are located within a dedicated compartment beneath the starboard aft berth and switched and isolated by means of four double pole switches located beneath the companionway steps.
The batteries form two banks, The Services bank comprises 1 x 110 A/hr and 1 x 80 A/hr batteries, while the engine cranking battery is rated as having 75 A/hr capacity.
Battery charging is by a 50 Amp, engine-driven alternator, with a 220-240v AC battery charger that may be connected to a marina's shore support system.
The majority of internal light fitting have been fitted with LED lamps, external 'navigation' remain fitted with filament bulbs.
Fuel: Diesel is carried within a stainless steel tank, located beneath the forward end of the main saloon seating. Maximum capacity is marked as being 150 litres.
Water: Two freshwater tanks are fitted, both located beneath the aft cabins' berths. Possibly what is one of the the original tanks is made of stainless steel and located beneath the starboard aft cabin's berth, while a polyethylene tank is fitted beneath the port aft cabin's berth. Originally the total freshwater capacity was declared as being 370 litres.
