Jeannius has been the busiest boat in TMMs bareboat
fleet for most of her life. Over 30 weeks charter
every year and this is now her 6th - and final - season. The interior
is remarkably good considering the hard use. The woodwork is for the most part like new just a bit of water
damage in the heads. The fake hessian-like material that covers everything that isn't wood
is still looking as new. The hulls have had their fair share of contact with docks of course so aren't exactly pristine at the moment. Nothing that a bit of love and affection won't take care of.
Slamming... The 435 has more bridgedeck clearance than most and certainly doesn't slam in seas anywhere near as much as say an older Leopard
or Voyage design. You don't want to be in that owners cabin fwd when going hard to windward though. Probably won't be slamming but you will become airborne! Stern cabins are much better sea cabins.
Slow... Yes in comparison to something like a Fastcat
but not in comparison to your average Lagoon
or FP. A Privilege will get you there in reasonable time and a lot of comfort.
Quality... Much better than most. I've crossed the Atlantic and done several 500 nm plus trips in Jeannius, recently survived running before 52 knot
winds (may have been higher but that's what it said when I had a moment to look at the instruments) without anything breaking. Overall I'm very happy with my boat!
