The sailing line up from the French brand Jeanneau is comprehensive and will satisfy a wide range of Australian sailor’s demands. As the world’s largest production boat builder, Jeanneau provides an international network of dealers with offices in every state of Australia giving customers peace of mind for continuing backup and service.
2018 has seen the launch of a number of new yacht models with the new generation Sun Odyssey turning heads and attracting awards all over the world. At the 2018 Sydney International Boat Show Jeanneau Australia dealers will be displaying the multi-award winning Sun Odyssey 440 and holding the premiere of the new Sun Odyssey 490.
The Sun Odyssey 440 was announced in 2017 with four examples being sold immediately from the plans to keen Australian customers. The 440 has gone onto win the European Yacht of the Year (Family Cruiser), SAIL magazine Best Boats (Best Monohull Cruising Boat 40 to 50ft), Cruising World magazines Boat of the Year (Most Innovative), and the Asia Boating Awards (Best Monohull Sailing Yacht – up to 65ft).
With features such as walk-around side decks, cathedral rigging for ease of moving forward, full length chine, twin rudders and a lower boom, the Sun Odyssey 440 and 490 will be very first on the list of yachts to visit at the Sydney Show. The show will be the Australasian premiere of the 490 which is sure to be as successful as the 440.
Also on display will be the bestselling Sun Odyssey 349. After the launch just a few short years ago the 349 has gone on to be a success with over 500 being sold worldwide, over forty of them to Australia. The model has appealed so much to the Australian market for its performance and general ‘bang for buck’ that the Sydney dealer just recently held a weekend rally just for this model.
From the larger yacht cruising range the Jeanneau 51 will be on display. The 51, and the larger 54, have been designed by world renowned naval architect Philippe Briand, with superyacht designer Andrew Winch for the interior. Their level of finish and bespoke orientated options has assured that luxury yacht lovers are satisfied for every aspect of their sailing needs.
The last yacht on display embodies the racing heritage of the brand. The Sun Fast range has gone from strength to strength with the latest example, the Sun Fast 3600, gaining podium finishes for the racing inclined. The particular yacht on display, Maverick, has just returned from finishing in the Melbourne to Oska short-handed race. Maverick finished third on IRC with a West Australian SF3600 finishing second, and a Queensland SF3600 finishing fifth. Jeanneau gets results!
The whole team at Jeanneau Australia including a number of staff from 38 South Boat Sales will look forward to seeing you at the 2018 Sydney International Boat Show.
