With the new Sun Odyssey 490, Jeanneau and designers Philippe Briand and Jean-Marc Piaton have managed to preserve the 27-year tradition of the successful Sun Odyssey range, while modernizing the lines and maintaining a harmonious overall appearance. As a long-standing exhibitor at boot Düsseldorf, the shipyard Jeanneau regularly presents a wide range of sailing as well asmotoryachts in the Düsseldorf exhibition halls.
New directions With the 49 foot long Sun Odyssey 490 Jeanneau breaks new ground in deck layout. As the only yacht in this category to date, the 490 offers complete and barrier-free freedom of movement on deck. This is made possible by the gently sloping side decks going down to cockpit level at the stern end without steps. This not only offers extraordinary freedom of movement on deck, but also brings with it increased functionality and easy handling of the new sailing yacht yacht.
The cockpit of the new Jeanneau is also well thought out and tidy in appearance. All important lines are brought to the winches in front of one of the two helms so that all basic sailing maneuvers can be carried out directly from the helm. A centre console with compass and instruments gives both control stations an overview of all important navigational data and keeps the handling of the yacht simple and straightforward.
Luxurious owner's cabin Below decks, the Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 490 will be available in two equally luxurious layout versions. The two-cabin version of the Sun Odyssey 490 offers a large and luxurious owner's suite in the bow area, which has a separate bathroom and separate shower cubicle. A large double bed and plenty of storage space for clothing and luggage complete this comfortable set-up. Another twin cabin is located aft to starboard and has a bath with shower cabin that is also accessible via the saloon. On the port side there is a large storage compartment for the sails, which can alternatively be replaced by another double cabin with double bed on request.
Room for a sociable life on board The saloon of the Sun Odyssey 490 offers plenty of space and comfort for a sociable life on board below deck. The u-shaped seating area to starbord includes a large dining table and enjoys an open view of the kitchen. The fully equipped kitchen with a three-burner stove is also arranged in u-shaped and opens up towards the dining area. Double sink and spacious fridge are standard on the Sub Odyssey 490. In addition, the saloon offers a spacious nav station that comfortably seats two people.
