Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 380 – The fundamentals
A modern and innovative yacht with twin wheels, a spacious cockpit with a drop-down swim platform, a fully battened or furling main and a furling jib, with the option of a myriad of downwind sails set on the sprit. With four layouts available, the Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 380 deserves serious consideration as the market leader in her category.
Why own the Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 380?
In a nutshell, pedigree. Most cruising sailors are looking for a boat that is easy to handle, comfortable under sail, and with all the amenities and space aboard to make life easy and relaxed once the anchor goes down or the Mooring is picked up. If the sailor has a background with some racing in it, whether dinghies or yachts then a boat that points well, kicks her heels when the breeze is up, is still fun to sail when the breeze is down, well that is a win-win. If you have pedigree, all the above are achievable.
How do you achieve such a pedigree?
Take a boat builder that was established in 1957, and is now part of the largest yacht manufacturing group in the world. Take a naval architect, with a proven, storied track record in offshore racing yacht design, combine the fact that the same designer has a reputation for designing performance-orientated cruising boats, and add interior design by Piaton Bercault and Co. Voila, and you have pedigree encapsulated in a visually striking and downright fun and rewarding 38-footer. Not guessed the designer yet? Google Marc Lombard and you will be impressed.
In the Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 380 designer’s own words
“Hull, appendages, sail plans, design and ergonomics, layouts, weight estimates… everything has been designed, down to the smallest details, to make her the best sailboat in her size category…,”
declares Marc Lombard, the naval architect heavily inspired by race boats and a historic partner of Jeanneau.
What does the builder feel are the key attributes?
Her powerful hull perfects the cruising experience. In addition to being particularly safe, with unencumbered side decks and comfortable coamings, this Jeanneau Sun Odyssey features a lower gooseneck, increasing the sail area.
Her incomparable ease of movement onboard is unique in this category… Life is easy, but vibrant and full of fun!
Below decks, careful consideration was given to the perception of space and the simplification of lines, with the objective of creating sensations of peace and calm.
With clear, clean, simplified lines, the interior stands out for its homogenous, contemporary aesthetic and its exceptional comfort. The interior design reveals an impressive level of comfort for a sailboat of this size.
