OffShore is a very well outfitted Sun Odyssey 40DS that lets you enjoy the waters of the Pacific Northwest in comfort and style - YEAR ROUND!
Easily single-handed, skipper and crew can take in the scenery from the roomy entertaining cockpit or from the large heated cabin with panoramic windows.
OffShore is swift under sail and power. For the skipper she offers state of the art electronics, an easily handled, well performing rig with furling sails and asymmetric snuffed spinnaker, and a 65HP turbo diesel with 3-blade Max-Prop that pushes her at trawler speeds. The crew enjoys the cruise in the large cockpit or in the spacious view salon with entertainment system and a furnace that keeps everyone cozy at all times. OffShore excels at everything. Tacking upwind into 25kts and big waves, cocktails in the spacious cockpit in a light summer breeze, or dinner and a movie in the cozy heated cabin on a dark winter night.
OffShore awaits you in the Elliott Bay Marina in Seattle and half-day sail from the Strait of Juan de Fuca and destinations beyond.
OffShore is an awesome boat regardless of what you would like to do!
She is very seaworthy as she has proven to me on the Pacific, performs very well under sail on all courses, motors at trawler speeds at a fraction of the fuel cost and can easily be handled by the skipper alone in just about any situation.
OffShore will keep you comfy! An Espar Hydronic diesel furnace heats cabins and water around the clock. Flip the switch and set the thermostat to your liking, just like at home. Heat is quiet at night - fore and aft cabins have radiators so fans don't need to run. I love taking OffShore into the San Juans over New Years. Frost on decks with snowy mountain views while its toasty below. At night light the oil lamps, get cozy and enjoy some of the many movies on the board computer and wall-mounted flat panel TV!
Safety is paramount on OffShore. With Radar, Class B AIS transponder, a powerful engine with automatic fire extinguishing system, smoke and CO detectors throughout, a quickly launched 9' Achilles RIB dinghy on the transom and 300' chain on a Fortress anchor that has yet to drag, she has you covered in any situation. Life vests are onboard for 8 adults and 2 kids. For larger parties please bring additional vests or coordinate with us. A permanently mounted Lifesling 3 and a floating throw line facilitate rescue operations.
OffShore can happily mozy along covering distance to the fantastic PNW cruising grounds and is fun day sailing in the Puget Sound. Furling main and jib, four 2-speed Harken winches and lines run into the cockpit make short handed sailing a breeze - pun intended. Avid skippers can fly the asymmetric spinnaker on downwind courses.
A complete set of Raymarine electronics provides every imaginable data about your trip and will keep the most demanding skipper well informed. If electronics aren't your cup of tea, just turn them off and sail by the seat of your pants.
Below decks OffShore boasts two private staterooms with separate heads, each with a shower, a roomy salon with panoramic windows, widescreen flat panel TV, stereo, navigation and multimedia board computer, dimmable power LED or oil lamp lighting, a galley with fridge, freezer, 2-burner Propane stove and oven, and a pantry large enough for weeks of provisions make OffShore what we call 'a floating home'.
You will miss nothing... until your cruise ends! Well, I'd love to have you back.

Chartering with Jens was a wonderful experience. Everything about our charter was delightful, from first meeting Jens, to going over the boat (what a beautiful boat!), to sailing, to docking at the end of the day. Definitely 5 stars!
"Offshore" is a wonderful boat, and was simply a pleasure to sail. Exceptionally roomy and bright with the salon layout. Jens is a great owner, and deeply involved in making sure you have everything you need for an enjoyable an d safe rental. I will be renting her again, and look forward to longer passages to truly appreciate all the features!
Fantastic cruising day! The yacht is so well maintained; very good upwind speed. The owner was extremely friendly and being helpful! The charter rate was very reasonable. Will definitely do this again next time in Seattle.
OffShore is an amazingly comfortable and agile boat. In fact, it’s the largest and most well-appointed bareboat charter that can be rented on Boatbound in Seattle! The cabin is in pristine condition and very well appointed with everything needed for week-long trip. The navigation system is top-notch (integrated with wind vane and console in the cabin) and lines are easily managed by 1-2 people. Sails are easy to tune with little effort and no loss of stability at higher speeds. Owner Jens is absolutely great, easygoing, and fun to work with. We’ll be chartering OffShore again soon.
