We love our 42DS but with a growing family we’re wanting to upgrade from 2 to 3 cabins. We’ve looked at many different options and we’ve tried to adjust to another manufacturer but nothing else gives us the Jeanneau ‘feel’ that we love.
So we’ve concluded our ideal is a 3 cabin 50DS but the challenge is there is only 1 here in NZ - and it’s owned by a friend of mine who loves it and has no plans to sell anytime soon!
Which means we either need to buy one from elsewhere in the world and get it delivered to NZ or we get lucky with a new arrival 50DS coming to NZ.
Which brings me to my long shot idea... if anyone has a J50DS and is contemplating a Pacific cruise and likes the idea of ending their adventure in NZ and then selling their boat (as some people do) then I could be the buyer. Obviously a few details to sort out but if the idea appeals to anyone in principle then I’d be keen to discuss further.
Thanks that would have been of interest - but to update my original post we have recently bought a 2012 50DS and now have it here in NZ (we bought it offshore and shipped it from Asia to NZ in Dec 2020).
