Don’t be fooled by the size of this new Jeanneau yacht, the award winning Sun Odyssey 319 has been recognised across the world by customers and journalists as one that sets a standard in the small yacht segment.

The first of these models into Australia was bought by an experienced sailor who actually stepped down from a large yacht such was the 319’s appeal. He named his yacht ‘Santai’ , translated from the Indonesian meaning relax, and at 6’4” tall he wanted a yacht that was spacious and set up in a way to be able to do that.

The Sun Odyssey 319 utilises a modern hull that incorporates a sharp chine to give stability, performance, and good control. The control is enhanced by a twin rudder design and standard wheel steering, and with a CE rating of Category A for unlimited ocean, you get piece of mind and excellent sailing.

The 319 is also offered with a number of sail plans to suit your style of sailing. Options include in-mast furling main, bowsprit for asymmetrical spinnakers and Code 0, and also symmetrical spinnaker gear. There is also a performance pack available with a tri-radial cut in Mylar/Taffeta, German mainsheet system, and an adjustable backstay. Two keel versions are available – a standard keel or a winged shoal swing keel version.

The interior benefits from the modern chine hull with an exceptional level of space and comfort usually found on a larger boat. Standing headroom throughout with bright natural light and views from large hull ports and long coachroof windows. Two cabins with generous room and a modular interior which can offer an additional two berths when needed.

Lots of storage and a large central table with fold up leaves makes the interior comfortable to move around at anchor or at sea with such things as integrated handrails, functional chart table, and a clear and accessible electrical panel that has room for optional equipment.

The Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 319 will be on display at Sanctuary Cove International Boat Showfrom 23-26 May.
