The Jeanneau 46 is French, it's stylish, elegant and not over done. The sleek lines of the hull and the split-level cabin windows are distinctively Jeanneau.
There is only so much that can be done with the interior of a 46-foot boat, but the design team has come up with something special on this Jeanneau. Clever use has been made of mahogany woodwork, cream leather and stainless steel to create a modern, elegant ambience.
There is the usual lounge with a foldout table and bench seat opposite. The adjustable table can be taken out quickly by undoing a couple of large thumbscrews. An entertainment centre has been incorporated neatly into the back of the staircase to the upper deck on the port side. The cabin is finished off with Venetian blinds on the lower windows and curtains on the top. A wooden, inlaid star feature breaks up the cabin roof lining effectively. Although the floor is laid teak and holly, the test boat had carpet, which added to the warmth of the cabin.
The galley is set down slightly, but still remains part of the main cabin, so anyone working there won't feel left out of the party. It's a unique design with two stainless hand rails either side of the entrance and a glass-serving top. It comes equipped with a cook-top and a small range hood to take away cooking smells, plus a microwave and deep drawers for plates and glasses. A neat feature is the integrated fridge door to match the surrounding cupboards and the baskets in the floor storage lockers.
The lower helm station is slightly raised, but it still remains part of the cabin. There's a seat for two people and a full set of instruments mounted in a large burl console, with a smaller one in front for the plotter and autopilot controls. The Volvo Penta EDC controls are mounted on an angle and fall readily to hand, while the switches for the genset and shore power are set under the console under a protective Perspex cover. Also incorporated in the console is a glove box, with a Perspex cover and a solid stainless steel fi ddle rail that doubles as a handle for passengers to hang onto.
Opposite the helm station is a small dinette the same height as the driver's seat. The table is set on a stainless frame and has a couple of handholds that are useful when stepping up to the seats.
Now for the big surprise! There are three cabins - four if you count the European style crew quarters aft under the circular lounge - with double berths. Not bad for a boat under 50 feet. The island berth in the owner's cabin has a slotted base and lift s up on a gas strut to get to the storage underneath. There's a couple of drawers under the bed that are so deep the cabin door needs to be closed to pull them all the way out. The berths in the guest cabins can be separated to form single bunks.
There are his and hers lined hanging lockers in the owner's cabin and the ladies will love the full-length mirror on the back of the bathroom door that opens into the cabin. There are two bathrooms featuring showers with circular screens.
Up top, the entertainment area is large. A big sun-pad lifts up to form a second seat around the circular table. There's also room for the driver and a friend at the upper helm station.

Things to know
This boat can only be rented with an obligatory skipper supplied by the charter. Please send a request to confirm whether the cost of the skipper is included within the cost of the boat or will be an extra cost.
Similarly to renting a car, chartering a boat requires a security deposit. The deposit, refundable after check-out, covers you and your fellow passengers against accidental damage and ensures that contractual obligations are met. The security deposit varies in value depending on the model and brand of the boat. It will be returned to you after the boat has been inspected and is deemed undamaged. You can choose to purchase the refundable security deposit, or pay a one-off deposit waiver fee instead.
A deposit waiver is a non-refundable alternative to the refundable security deposit. The deposit waiver acts in the same way as the security deposit, in that it ensures any damage to the boat is covered. The deposit waiver is lower in value than the security deposit.
We have partnered with UNIQA to provide a range of additional insurance options for your charter.
1) Charter deposit insurance - secures the security deposit in the case of loss or damage to the chartered boat as a result of a naval accident.
2) Cancellation insurance - covers the cancellation cost in case of sudden serious illness, accident or death.
3) Charter payment insurance - covers against the potential insolvency of the charter company; boating accidents occurring before the rental period or sinking. It also provides insurance in the case of the charter not being able to provide the boat selected at booking or an alternative vessel!
Zizoo offers a full refund for cancellations made within 24 hours of booking. For cancellations made up to 7 days after the booking date, a 12% handling fee is retained.
For bookings cancelled up to 30 days before the check-in date, a 50% refund of the total amount is applied. Cancellations made within less than 30 days of the check-in date are not eligible for refund.
Please be aware that the conditions of our charter partners’ own policies apply. If you have further questions regarding our cancellation policy, please contact our customer support team.
What happens when I request an offer?
Once we receive your request, we will confirm the availability of the boat, as well as check for alternative ones. To ensure your experience is the best it can be, we may contact you to discuss your request in detail. Let us do the research for you - free of charge.
When can I get in touch with the skipper?
You can get in touch with the skipper as soon as you’ve completed your booking. Our skippers are highly qualified and knowledgeable about their locality.
What is a Transit Log?
A Transit Log is a variable payment, which can include the following: bed linen, cleaning, on-board Internet connection, tourist tax and base marina fees. The details of the Transit Log differ depending on the boat, location and charter partner. Once you choose your boat, our team will be able to outline the specifics of the Transit Log associated with your booking.
Are there any other costs I should be aware of?
There are marina fees and fuel costs which vary depending on the type, duration and location of your sailing holiday. Marina fees need to be paid at each marina you choose to dock overnight - the amount varies but you may be able to find this information in advance by contacting the marinas directly. Fuel costs depend on whether you’re sailing a motorboat or a sailboat. You can estimate fuel costs by double-checking your chosen boat’s engine, and the expected distance you aim to sail.
