Jeanneau17JEANNEAU – New for 2017–a first look!

“Less is more, except when more matters?”

Since 1990 over 17000 Sun Odysseys have been built of which 2000 are of the current XX9 generation. This iconic boat range is a top selling brand worldwide offering a blend of both great design with great sailing performance and great value for money.

In 2017 Jeanneau’s objective is to harmonize the range from the 349 through to the 519. To offer more choices and to introduce the new Jeanneau 51 Yacht and re-vamped 57. Let’s get into it…


For the Sun -Odyssey range, 34-50′

  • Bigger aft platform: This will be made 3 X bigger and extend full width across the transom for the SO389, SO419 and SO449AftPlatform
  • Improved Companionway: For 2017 hinged doors rather than a Companionwaywashboard, a lower threshold step and a gentler angle for the steps down into the cabin will be seen on onboard the SO389, SO419 and SO449
  • Upgraded interior lighting: The interior lighting will be upgraded to both direct and indirect LED lighting throughout the accommodation onboard.
  • Completely Redesigned Upholstery: Throughout the Sun Odyssey range in 2017 the upholstery will have pillow backrests with piping for the upgraded Ambience selection and a whole new material range to choose from for the standard Ultra Leather (Breathable vinyl) selection. Also, for all models your choice of two different wood finishes for the interiors with contrasting floors.
  • Modern Bowsprit: All the Sun Odyssey 2016 range will have a modern bowsprit for both aesthetic and practical purposes. This has been inspired by the racing boats and will be integrated into the hull lines and assist with both better, safer anchoring and with flying light wind, or asymmetric sails.



  • Upgraded instrument packages featuring the latest Raymarine RaymarineInstinstrumentation. Yes, we offer other choices. Why did we select Raymarine? Simply–Universal service. We have found that many other brands offer similar features, but lack a worldwide and especially a Caribbean network of service. We want to make your life easy!
  • Latest Yanmar diesel green technology.
