Atlantic Cruising Yachts presents the Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 449. At first glance, she is clearly a Sun Odyssey. Moreover, the all-new Sun Odyssey 449 reflects the latest design trend that started with the Sun Odyssey 409. Dynamic lines, a hard chine on the hull, lots of hatches and windows along with bevelled edges on the deck combine to form a powerful and straight forward design from the pen of Philippe Briand.
But her natural beauty is more than skin deep. A closer look reveals an innovative deck plan that makes sailing easy. A Jeanneau is first, and foremost, for sailing. Three main concepts shape the Sun Odyssey 449: a fast, seaworthy sailboat, simple to use deck and sail plans and a high-quality interior.
The modern and simple to use deck plan was the result of a complete rethinking of the ergonomics of sail handling. All the sheets are lead back to the twin helm stations which remain uncluttered. The centerpiece of the cockpit is the large, folding table. When closed, the aft platform provides security to the cockpit while underway and folds down when at anchor with its integrated swim ladder.
The new interior design is clean and beautiful with plenty of contrast between the rich wood finish, light headliners and high-end upholstery. Leather-covered handrails and solid wood handholds create a safe and seaworthy interior. A choice of traditional teak and holly or light oak floorboards emphaisze the rich wood interior. The exceptional visibility and light comes from the eight hull ports and eleven opening ports and flush hatches.
