Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 389 Yacht
Designed by Marc Lombard the Sun Odyssey 389 is aimed at the very heart of the sailing market. Boasting many unique features and benefits this is a “yacht built by sailors for sailors everywhere” says the Jeanneau design team.
The Sun Odyssey 389 follows on from the design success of the larger 409 and 439, by being easy to sail and having excellent performance qualities, certainly big enough to take on rough sea but small enough to fit most marinas.
The Sun Odyssey 389 is a very comfortable yacht to relax on, whilst at anchor or in a marina. Sleek modern lines, a hard chine hull helping to give more room inside along with a re-designed deck layout, including a twin steering system, they are just some of the features of the Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 389 that sets her apart from other yachts in her class.
With a choice of two or 3 cabin layouts, the Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 389 yacht also has extra flexibility when it comes to specific cruising waters, she is available with a lifting keel option. With a lift keel you can more easily explore those drying harbours, shallower inlets and secluded bays. Other keel options include deep or shoal draft. The standard 1.95 metre draft keel tends to offer the best all round performance but do consider carefully your cruising ground when making a keel configuration choice.
You decide on the sail plan layout of your Sun Odyssey 389
The Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 389 yacht has a modern sail plan that’s compatible with a self-tacking jib. Our clients can also opt for a larger 105% overlap Genoa head sail, or the standard easy to tack Jib. Headsail and mainsail sheets are lead back to primary winches on both sides of the yacht, in easy reach of the helms person. All lines are neatly lead back to the cockpit in a channel under the coach roof, for a clean and uncluttered look. This also makes moving about on deck that much safer.
Multiple keel options and cabin options
The Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 389 is available with three keel versions; standard fin, swing keel and shoal, she is also available with a two or three cabin layout. Jeanneau have made available numerous options available that are usually reserved for larger yachts, such as air-conditioning and bow thruster etc.
The interior is of a contemporary styling, that’s brings together mainly traditional materials found throughout the Sun odyssey range such as, solid wood and stainless steel. Keeping with the traditional cruising layout, the 389 incorporates the popular and user friendly, ever popular ‘L’ shaped galley. A light an airy saloon and large cabins with plenty of storage should put the 389 at the top of your shopping list.
Saving Our Planet; Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 389 Production is environmental friendly.
For several years Jeanneau have been developing Prisma Injection Moulding. This is a yacht manufacturing process, that greatly reduces manufacturing carbon footprint and extreme localised air pollution, that’s created when a new yacht is manufactured. The closed yacht manufacture process allows many more intricate shapes to be created; fewer raw materials are also needed to create a stronger yacht or boat. It’s a fact, that a deck of a yacht built using the Prisma moulding System, is often 30% lighter than a conventionally laid up deck. However the integral construction of the Prisma process is such, that a lighter deck built this way, is much stronger than its conventional counterpart.
Jeanneau Invented Prisma Moulding
The innovative progress made by Jeanneau is making its yachts like the Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 389 stand out from a crowded market. Inventing and then improving the Prisma Moulding process, Jeanneau is setting a trend that other manufacturers must follow. Within the next few years, European laws will completely ban the construction of conventionally laid up boats and yachts.
We all need to pay our part in protecting the planet from harmful construction emissions, no more so than in the developments of plastics. Jeanneau have proven that the historical craft of Yacht and Boat building can enhance modern technology, and help to look after the environment that a yacht or boat is built to be used in.
