Jeanneau announced the launch of its new flagship, the Jeanneau Yachts 65, as well as the Sun Odyssey 380.
Designed by Philippe Briand, the hull of the Jeanneau Yachts 65 features a clean, contemporary deck plan. This sailboat promises to be entirely adaptable to its owner. Fans of high performance can choose the strong version, with a fixed attachment for the mainsheet, an open cockpit and high-performance rigging choices. Owners who prefer comfort will have the option of a mainsail arch with a hard top, a self-tacking jib and an exterior galley.
Featuring various interior and exterior finishes, a wide selection of upholsteries and floorboards, four versions offering different layouts, the Jeanneau Yachts 65 also offers many customization options.
Efficiency, effectiveness, and an inviting atmosphere are watchwords on the deck of the Jeanneau Yachts 65. Ease of movement, access to equipment for ease of handling, storage, and comfort, whether at sea or at anchor, have been carefully considered down to the smallest details.
Deck Plan: the secret is in the details
The aft transom, which transforms into an immense sundeck, allows access to the tender garage. A swim ladder descends from a swim platform, the designated place for experiencing all the joys.
Twin helms are located far aft, close to the winches, allowing space for an XXL cockpit. A lot of space forward of the two storage lockers: two cockpit tables can be electrically lowered to transform the area into a swim platform.
Jeanneau Yachts 65, the interior layout
The Jeanneau Yachts 65 features twelve deck hatches, complemented by an additional hatch in the sail locker/skipper’s cabin. The owner can choose between two owner’s cabins with private bathrooms, three cabins (forward owner’s cabin), four cabins, and the possibility for each of these versions to make a lateral cabin into a walk-in closet or additional berth.
In the saloon, the starboard table and U-shaped bench seating can accommodate eight people. here we also find a port-side sofa and a chart table designed to be used as a desk while cruising.
The Sun Odyssey 380
The Sun Odyssey line continues to grow: the 8th generation of Sun Odyssey, already including the Sun Odyssey 440, 490, and 410, welcomes the Sun Odyssey 380. This new addition is designed by Marc Lombard for the naval architecture, heavily inspired by race boats, and by Piaton Bercault & CO for the interior.
This 38-footer features an optional lifting keel with the same performance as a deep keel. Complemented with the option of beaching legs, this lifting keel version meets the expectations of those who wish to sail in shallower waters and beaches at low tide. The Sun Odyssey features a lower boom, facilitating access to the sail and increasing the sail area.
Sun Odyssey Interior
The interiors are defined by clean and contemporary lines. The bulkheads and the treatment of interior volume have been reconsidered in an atypical fashion to visually and physically augment usable space onboard.
The saloon features a starboard lateral sofa and a convertible design, as well as an asymmetrical mast bulkhead that allows for seating as well storage space.
The L-shaped galley features multiple storage areas. A large-capacity drawer is accessible at the centre of the sailboat to complement the storage compartments in the galley.
