Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 440

New to the Pacific Northwest fleet of available Jeanneau sailboats is the 2019 Sun Odyssey 440, the first of which is currently being built in a French factory and slated to arrive to Seattle soon. The newest iteration of the 440 looks right at home with the Sun Odyssey line of performance Euro-styled cruisers.

Initially, we see many of the familiar forms of this class: the efficient plumb bow, open beamy decks, and the dual racing helms, and a large foldable dining table in the cockpit. The bulb keel is that of a racer, while the generous accommodations of the hull itself is full-blooded cruiser. Why not do both?

Fancy features include a retractable bow thruster and electrically deployable aft swim platform. Also notable are the dual rudders with Jeffa bearings, completely walkaround decks, and skow bow style full-length chine hull that keeps the bow up when going into the wind.

The salon is huge with a nav table and galley positioned port plus a family-size table with cushioned seating to starboard.

We’ve just scratched the surface of this impressive, forward-looking yacht. If interested in first dibs on the hull currently under construction, or just want to learn more, feel free to reach out to local dealer Marine Servicenter. The 2019 Sun Odyssey 440 is currently listed at $399,999.
