The 100th Jeanneau 57 rolls off the production line this month and will be delivered to her new owner in Shenzhen, China.
Ease of handling, luxurious liveability and offshore performance are key elements of the 57, and the collaboration between the highly respected naval architect Philippe Briand, and interior and deck designer Vittorio Garroni has resulted in an elegant yacht.
Design, engineering and most importantly construction certified by the Bureau Veritas and built to ISO9001 provides peace of mind no matter what conditions are encountered.
Research has shown that 80% of time on yachts is spent on deck and so special attention was paid to cockpit design. Sailing, dining, entertaining and pure lounging are all well catered for with a large cockpit that incorporates a sun-deck and an electrically operated stern platform with tender stowage.
From the cockpit the bright and spacious saloon is accessed through two large companion way sliding doors. LED lighting, a surround sound BOSE stereo and the option of a cockpit table fridge are just a sample of features on this very special yacht.
The true enthusiast will appreciate the long waterline design, the centrally located tankage, the keel stepped three spreader rig, and the mylar/taffeta sails. For that additional level of performance such options as a Gori feathering propeller, a classic mainsail, a German mainsheet system, and a Navtec hydraulic backstay are available.
Today, more 57s have been delivered worldwide than any other boat in her category making this model a true benchmark of the class.
