Jeanneau 49 DS

Yacht interior

Jeanneau Yachts have been building superior sailing yachts for over 50 years. Their hallmarks are precision engineering and innovation, qualities that have pushed the company to the pinnacle of the boat building industry.

Their designers and architects have been among the first to embrace the most advanced methods of yacht construction and this unique combination of function and design enables them to produce captivating and inspiring yachts that stand the test of time. The two concepts that set Jeanneau yachts apart - design and construction - are integral to the world-wide success of the brand.


For a yacht to be successful it must first be pleasing to the eye; the form and flow of the lines of a Jeanneau are aesthetically pleasing both above and below the waterline. The company is responsive to the suggestions of their customers and have incorporated many of their suggestions into future designs.

The second important factor in their appeal is that of performance: a Jeanneau is responsive, agile and most importantly - fast. They provide superior control ahead and astern under power and their well-balanced sail plans make for easy handling even in the most testing conditions. Their high-end sails, modern hulls and quality deck hardware all help with fast, effortless passage making.


By utilising cutting-edge moulding processes Jeanneau can produce an immensely strong frame with a lower all-up weight, yet do it in a more environmentally friendly manner than other building techniques. Below decks, the company's passion for rich interior woodworking is another signature of quality. Fine quality hardwoods and strong marine composites are cut to industrial tolerances before being assembled by Jeanneau's team of expert craftsmen. As one of the world's largest boatbuilding groups, Jeanneau can source the highest quality materials at very competitive prices and these savings enable the costs to the yacht owner to be reduced markedly. As an ISO 9001 company, their building processes are certified to the highest international standards.

The Sun Odyssey 49 DS

Elegant, fast and powerful, the 49 slips quietly through the waves in all weathers. At the helm twin steering positions provide excellent all-round visibility and its sleek, easily driven hull surprises everyone with its turn of speed, even in the lightest weather. This enables faster and longer passages to be made effortlessly. Its large, deep, roomy cockpit allows the crew to relax in extraordinary comfort and safety while the miles slip unnoticed under the keel. The deck hardware allows the sails to be handled easily and an electric winch enables even the younger crew to furl the sails without difficulty. There are not many yachts of this size that can be handled in all weathers by the skipper and one crew! A bow thruster makes light work of very tight berthing situations.


Step below and you will marvel at the 49's exceptional liveable space, where an abundance of natural light and fresh air give a commanding sense of space. The warm colouring of the woodwork combines beautifully with the cream leather soft furnishings to create a feeling of sumptuous luxury. A first glance will take in a spacious saloon, a large galley and well-appointed navigation station.
