New for 2012: Jeanneau's Sun Odyssey 44DS

'Jeanneau’s Sun Odyssey 44DS'    .

Jeanneau, French yacht manufacturer since 1957, is planning big things for the 2012 season, and among them is the almost revolutionary Sun Odyssey 44DS.

The yacht is quite revolutionary both in design and new materials. The combination of a hull designed by Philippe Briand with an interior and a bridge signed Franck Darnet makes for what Jeanneau was hoping for: a boat both pleasant to sail and exceptionally comfortable.

One of the best features is that all sheets on the boat lead aft to the helm. This makes sail handling a real joy for the normal cruising couple to sail, or any short handed crew.

The spacious cockpit sets the deck saloon range apart, with dedicated areas for eating, relaxing and sailing. Access to the water is facilitated by a wide transom, which includes a natty and convenient opening porthole into the aft cabin. The distinctive deck coamings and transom feature taupe accents.

Below, large deck saloon windows bathe the walnut interior in light. Rich materials are found throughout. High quality countertops in the galley and head compartments, stainless steel details, white-lacquered cabinets and rich upholstery are unlike anything seen on other boats in her class.
