Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 469
We would like to introduce to you the new Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 469. We take great pleasure in introducing to you this very exciting and latest addition to the Jeanneau Sun Odyssey range
The Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 469 completes the Jeanneau line up for the range between 37’ and 50’. Designed by Philippe Briand in conjunction with the Jeanneau design team, this model has focused on four key elements; ergonomics, volume, performance and style.
Following in the footsteps of the SO379, 409, 439 & 509, the Sun Odyssey 469 is consistent in dimensions of those of a typical modern cruising yacht but too has a hard chine running from amidships aft. The hard chine achieves a couple of important things, first of all the higher level of the chine on the hull allows for more internal volume and secondly provides a more stable platform when sailing under sail.
The Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 469 is built using the same technology as her elder siblings. The hull is hand laid fibreglass; the cored decks are resin injected making them lighter yet stronger than traditional build techniques. Prisma injection is a process that enables the end product to have two perfectly finished sides, inside and out.
One of the important features the design team wanted to incorporate was a feeling of space. The interior of the Sun Odyssey 469 is equal to that of a 50’ yacht therefore the she certainly provides a comfortable, light and airy environment to relax.
When stepping aboard the new Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 469, the first thing you will notice is the inviting transom with large swim platform. This clearly opens up the cockpit and provides a safe and secure helm position. The cockpit is cleverly divided into two sections, these being the helm station (Port and Starboard) and further forward the wide, uncluttered seating area which is great for socialising or relaxing. The cockpit is on one level and has a large fully functional cockpit table located centrally so walking around the cockpit area can be done with great ease.
With short-handed sailing in mind, the Jeanneau design team have positioned the winches in front of the helm position so controlling the mainsheet and genoa can be done from the helm
The deck area is again wide and un-cluttered, with all tracks and deck hardware located on the coachroof so the risk of stubbing your toe while running around barefoot is virtually eliminated! The use of quality deck hardware is evident, with Harken deck clutches, tracks and winches as standard. Aluminium cleats fore and aft and the standard twin bow roller make the Sun Odyssey 469 a truly well thought out and user friendly yacht.
Stepping below you will notice that the companionway steps are set at a 45 degree angle with plenty of hand rails to grab hold of when at sea. The interior is light, airy and very usable with plenty of storage areas. All the attributes of the larger Sun Odyssey range come together on the 469 such as a spacious interior with a choice of 3 or 4 cabins, an exceptional layout in the saloon providing separate zones for living aboard, the use of luxurious materials and attention to detail such as LED lighting, but most importantly, light and ventilation. The Sun Odyssey469 has 8 hull ports, long coachroof windows and lots of opening ports and flush deck hatches.
Choosing the right combination of interior looks is important and allows you to individualise your yacht, therefore Jeanneau offer a choice of fabrics, floorboards and wood finish to allow you to make it right for you. In addition to this, there is an abundance of standard features such as the 175L fridge, 3-burner stove with oven, hot and cold pressurised water, LED lighting and much more.
Jeanneau is clearly committed to renewable energy and this is demonstrated by the use efficient LED lighting and low power draw Frigoboat refrigeration system with three stage compressor.
There is no surprise that the Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 469 has been nominated for ‘Boat of the Year for 2012/13.
