Sun odyssey performance (horses unleashed)

A sailors`s drive for performance is as old as the wind. Every owner desires a seafaring boat, a boat that know how to cut a path on the water, heading first upwind and then lengthening her stride downwind... Because performance feeds on itself, creates new sensations and builds expectations.

With these sailors in mind, whether racers or simply hungry for results. Jeanneau has launched the sun odyssey performance series, from 36 to 49 feet.

Performance versions are the equivalent of turbo versions, enhanced for maximum power and efficiency. They are fitted with premium equipment: a longer mast, adjustable genoa tracks, discontinuous dyform rigging, adjustable backstay, dynema halyards, a feathering propeller, an iron keel, longer and lighter than even the standard deep keel of the sun odyssey, all the elements required for the ultimate in performance.

As sails are the true powerhouse of the boat, those on the performance versions have been carefully studied. Judge for yourself: tri-radial mainsail in mylar taffeta, untilizing high-tech complex laminates, which optimize the surface-to-weight radio, rolling batten cars, radial reinforcement, leech line accessible at each single-line reef point. The tri-radial genona is made from the same material, with a webbing attachment point at head and tack, leading edge with foam insert, adjustable leech line and visualisation stripe... In addition, the 45-to 49-foot models offer an optional furling gennaker!

The sun odyssey 49 performance was recently proven at sea when it won line honours in both stages of the atlantic trans quadra.
