2009 Jeanneau Sun Odyssey DS50 (50% Share) "Inuka" in Singapore
- New or Pre Owned Pre Owned Item
- Location Marina at Keppel Bay
- Manufacturer or Builder Jeanneau
- Item # 671737
- Qty Available 1
Our boat, Inuka, was purchased with the intention of having a family retreat on weekends, as well as a shared recreational activity. We have thoroughly enjoyed sailing with both friends and by ourselves. Occasionally, I also go solo sailing, which is a very peaceful and thoughtful experience. We bought Inuka in Phuket and carried out an extensive renovation before my wife and I sailed it to Singapore in October 2021. Since then, we mostly go for day trips to St Johns/Lazarus, with some overnight stays at St Johns/Lazarus, Pasir Ris, and even Marina at Keppel Bay. In November 2022, we sailed to Bintan and back.
I use the boat less than half of the time, attempting to go sailing most weekends, although in actuality, it amounts to around 2-3 times per month. Furthermore, even when I do go sailing, it is only for a single day during the weekend. Therefore, it is logical to share the ownership and expenses equally with someone else.
I am a private equity investor originally from Canada and my wife is a tech lawyer originally from mainland China. We have a 4-year old son. We are permanent residents of Singapore and plan to stay here for at least of the next couple of decades.

In October 2021, nearly all electric devices were replaced, and the majority of other equipment received servicing. This year's extensive refurbishment also encompassed new canvas works. Recent updates involved a complete generator service in February 2023, a complete fridge and freezer service in March 2023, and a replacement of the bow thruster battery in March 2023.
Work To Be Completed
The membrane in my water maker likely needs replacing since I almost never use it. However, it's not necessary unless I go on long trips.
One of the battens in the mainsail has slid out slightly. I just need to slide that one batten back in and tie it on a zero wind day. Additionally, some of the lower shackels which attach the main to the mast should be replaced. It is perfectly fine to sail (and I have been sailing as such for many months).
There are a couple of buttons that need replacing on the bimini windows above the helms and some minor tears, but they haven't affected my sailing.
I occasionally add Sika to the saloon window edges to address small leaks that I haven't been able to fully resolve. It's not a big issue, and I only notice it every ~9 months or so.
Some of the plastic pegs that hold up the ceiling panels are no longer working properly, but it's not a significant problem, and I can just pop them back in place. I might consider using super glue to fix them.
A few of the push-button cabinet locks are not locking, but I haven't replaced them yet because it hasn't caused any major problems. One of the kitchen cabinet locks is stuck, so I'll need to investigate that further.
Although Inuka is probably overdue for a hull antifouling, I've had a diver go down every two weeks to maintain the hull's good condition ever since Oct 2021. I'll redo the antifouling when the growth becomes material/noticeable. The hull currently is in good condition and I continue to sail without any perceptible difference.
One of the three electric winches sounds like it has some salt/dust build up inside. It should be taken apart and fully cleaned and then put back together again. I believe this is a relatively straightforward job, but it needs to be very carefully to not lose any ball bearings and not get any oil stains in the cockpit. I have continued to use the winch with full effectiveness.
50% ownership in "Inuka," a Jeanneau 50DS which went through a comprehensive refit in Oct 2021.
I probably only go sailing once every couple of weeks. It would be great to split the operating costs with someone else. The total cost of buying the boat including a very comprehensive refit completed in Oct 2021 was US$261k (SG$353k). I believe the full operating cost per year is about SG$40k/year (rough number, not specifically calculated).
I would sell 50% of the boat for US$100k (SG$135k), and then the operating costs would be split 50/50. The operating costs include marina (Keppel Bay), insurance, repairs & general maintenance, and diesel, electricity & water.
