Interior & Galley

Step down the companionway and enjoy the teak and holly sole and rich use of teak in the construction of the interior. The 43DS’ most prominent feature is the wrap-around panoramic view from within the salon. With light coming in from both the side windows and the roof, the salon is very light and airy and provides great ventilation. Jeanneau has done a fine job of blending the large windows and raised roof into the deck design.

Headroom in the 43 DS is 6” 5” through most of the interior. In the saloon area are a U-shaped settee and dining table to starboard and twin seats divided by a smaller table to port. This doubles as the navigation station, to allow the incorporation of a large bathroom with separate shower stall on the port side of the companionway. There is a second, smaller ensuite bathroom in the forward cabin area.

The large L-shaped galley is on the starboard side of the companionway, and is very well-equipped with a twin stainless steel sinks supplied with pressurized hot and cold water, a huge 230lt refrigerator, two burner stove/oven and a clever storage area for pots & pans.

There are separate refrigerater and ice-box compartments. The fridge has a topload hatch and a stainless steel front load door. The icebox compartment has a top load access and can be made into a freezer with the addition of freezer module. A gimbled, stainless Eno 2-burner stove & oven is propane. A Kenmore microwave is mounted above the stove. Abundant storage is found under counter, above counter and under the cabin sole in provided bins. A great galley!


Prelude is the two cabin, two head version featuring the spacious aft owner's cabin. The aft stateroom is very large, with a walk-around center-line queen-sized bed, ample storage with hanging lockers on each side, seating on each side & private access to aft head with separate shower. Includes flat screen mounted television.  A Froli sleep system is included in the owner's cabin.

Forward is a guest cabin which is a center-line double This forward V-berth measures 6’ 5” long by 4’ 8” wide with plenty of storage and hanging space and a desk/vanity unit in the starboard aft corner which could be used as an office during extended cruising. This cabin also has access to a private head and large opening hatch.

The salon has the convertable table option which allows the salon to convert to a double berth. The owner also has the original deluxe teak inlaid table which came with the boat. Storage under cabin sole.

Custom bedding included for both forward guest berth and owner's cabin.
