Cannes Boat Show - Jeanneau announces a new 64 foot sailing yacht

The new flagship Jeanneau 64 Jeanneau Media
Jeanneau, the quality French yacht builder will be officially announcing a new 64 foot model at the Cannes Boat Show this week.

The Jeanneau 64 will be launching in the European summer of 2014, and is designed by the respected naval architect Philippe Briand. Briand, who designed the successful Jeanneau 57 and Jeanneau 53, is also well known for designing the super yachts Mari-Cha III and Mari-Cha IV.

For the Jeanneau 64, Briand has teamed up with interior designer Andrew Winch. With over 25 years of experience and having delivered over 55 of the most admired super yachts (including 32 sailing yachts), Andrew has established his studio as one of the leading yacht designers in the world.

The contemporary deck styling of the Jeanneau 64 encompasses around 40% of space given over to lounging and relaxation. Whilst emphasising the relaxation element, Briand has also designed the new flagship to be secure, fast, and enjoyable to sail. The hull is modern with a hard chine for increased speed, stability, and interior volume.

Integrated captive winches, a large selection of diverse sail plans, and centralised sail handling ensure an expected ease of use. Twin thrusters and a 180hp engine mean easy docking and comfortable cruising speeds while under power.


The transom has a sundeck and a large garage, and the traditional transom can be replaced with a flush, walk-through transom for a sportier look and increased floor space in the cockpit.

Dedicated spaces for relaxation, reading, cooking, dining and sunbathing are featured, and outdoor living and entertaining is a breeze thanks to an exterior galley that includes a grill/plancha, sink and large refrigeration compartment.

The sumptuous owner’s cabin that can be located fore or aft and well-appointed VIP guest cabins afford exceptional comfort. All cabins feature separate shower stalls, electric toilets, plenty of storage space, and luxurious fittings.

A professional grade galley with top-of-the-line appliances includes stainless steel fridges, space for convection and microwave ovens, and a household sized dishwasher.

Multiple possibilities are available for dedicated skipper accommodation, from extra space in a lateral cabin to special cabins fore or aft. Other innovative interior options include a family suite for four people, a full workshop, and laundry facilities.

The full engine room allows for easy and centralised access to pumps, electrical systems, the engine, filters and domestic systems, while also insulating the interior from noise and vibration.

With several thousand possible combinations of fabrics, woods, leathers and interior and exterior layouts, the Jeanneau 64 is truly a semi-custom yacht.
