Jeanneau 64 Sailing

By: Andy Adams

The new Jeanneau 64, flagship of the Jeanneau yacht line takes things to yet another level. This is truly a yacht with a size and sail plan that would seem intimidating at first but the design innovation here is the electric furling main with self-tailing jib and an electric winch for the main. Sailing this impressive big yacht is much more manageable than it’s size would suggest and the electric winch, located below decks means you don’t get piles of sheet in the cockpit either.

Plus, the cockpit here is simply expansive and is separate from the helm area for elegant entertaining. 

Then, if the weather doesn’t cooperate, head below to the spacious and bright cabin and gather around the big dining table!
