ARRIVING SUMMER 2022! Full Chine hull, sails with inverted bow "up" into the wind. Skips and hops across wave & swell, displaces water outward, very dry and comfortable ride!
This new model has revolutionized cruising: she is the first of the next generation (8th generation) Sun Odyssey's and features inclined "walk around" Side Decks for ease of movement from twin helms directly forward to the bow! Full Length Chine Hull with NEW "Skow Bow" design. Sailing performance and movement onboard redefined!
With this next generation hull form evolution, Jeanneau has created a sailboat with tremendous buoyancy forward yet sleek and fast thru the water. When sailing the new 490 the bow stays "up" into the wind and rises slightly as she floats and skips thru waves and seas - unlike anything in the market today!
The new Sun Odyssey 490 benefits from an entirely new, innovative layout for greater ease of movement and livability. Central galley with all storage low in the boat for reduced CG and better sailing. True rectangular berths in all 3 cabins with ample headroom throughout. Master suite forward with a "modern boutique style hotel" layout - separate shower compartment in center, vanity sink outboard to starboard, head and vanity in separate compartment to port.
All-New Alpi "Grey Oak" wood finish with bright white accents and lots of natural light with large rectangular hull ports, big windows, and lots of deck hatches. A must see for sure!
Seaworthy and welcoming, cozy and sporty, masculine and feminine, the Sun Odyssey 490 is as attractive on the interior as on the exterior.
Call or email today to discuss this new model in more detail or to reserve her for your sailing enjoyment!
Designed by Philippe Briand and Jean-Marc Piaton, the Sun Odyssey 490 successfully combines contemporary style and harmony, all while respecting the heritage of her 27 years. This sailboat from 49 feet has revolutionized cruising: she is the only sailboat in their category to feature movement about the deck without obstacle. For example, the sidedecks are inclined, sloping down to the cockpit floor, meaning that there is no need to step over the coaming.
