How do boat models get away with being dated 2020 while we are still in 2019? With a limited release, of course! Such is the case with the Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 410, with one of the few models coming into our neck of the woods this August. The eighth generation of a popular build, the newest 410 is the product of gradual, savvy evolution versus a complete rebuild.
Of frequent mention is the deck plan, made specifically to feature wide sidedecks with little to no clutter all the way forward. The deck is also a complete walkaround, meaning one could walk from one of the two helms all the way to the foredeck to deal with a headsail without any scrambling over coamings or messing with steps. Almost the entire transom can fold outward for a massive swimstep, making water access a strength of the build.
A new development is the hull design, for it now features a full chine. The bow is also one of the few negative bows, meaning that the length along the waterline is longer than the length overall. These are all modern touches meant to yield more speed and maneuverability.
Of course, what’s a Jeanneau without excellent accommodations? There are a few layouts offered that mostly play with the number of heads (one or two), stateroom cabins (two or three), and stowage space.
All in all, it looks like Jeanneau cleverly improved an already popular build. If you want to see one of these 2020 boats, you best contact the local dealer
Marine Servicenter for a peek this August. Base price is $234,000.
