Jeanneau 54

The Jeanneau 54 is born from the close collaboration of Philippe Briand, who’s chined hull and elegant deck profile ensure seaworthy handling and timeless looks, and Andrew Winch’s meticulous approach to every ergonomic detail and the selection of high-end materials that echo the look and feel of his super yacht pedigree.

- Sunbed integrated into foredeck with retractable bimini provides a quiet place for reading and relaxing

- Large, double anchor rollers for maximum security and ease of handling

- Direct access to the anchor locker from the deck provides extra storage and visual check of rode when anchoring

- Longest cockpit in her class

- Armchair seating with integrated cup holders ensure fantastic views and comforts all the while within the area protected by the sprayhood.

- Exceptional exterior storage from line lockers to deep lazerette lockers in the transom

- A «Safety first» design including easy deployment of the life raft from the back of the table without the need to lift it or open the transom.

- Retractable davits that allow for easy tender handling of a proper tender without taking up interior space and, best of all, they disappear when not in use

- The innovative, patented, aft terrace with integrated sun lounger seats offers a comfortable space to relax and exceptional access to the water from a wide, inclined bathing ladder

SAILING

- All winches are set together at the aft end of the cockpit ensuring easy sail management from a dedicated location and keeps the rest of the cockpit clear

- Easy motoring and maneuvering thanks to an easy to reach throttle lever and inclined engine panel

KillarneyStory and Photos by: Jennifer Harker

We’re aboard Attigouatan, a Pursuit 2260 that normally lives life as a friend’s cottage boat, running back and forth from dock to dock. This will be her longest run in four years, travelling the approximately 120 kilometres (80 miles) northwest from Parry Sound to Killarney, threading our way through the northern reaches of the stunning 30,000 Islands of Georgian Bay’s eastern shoreline.

Her name evokes an early indigenous name for Lake Huron – Spirit Lake.

Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 440

Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 440By Zuzana Prochazka

There are few things more satisfying than watching someone thumb their nose at tradition and introduce something revolutionary that kicks convention to the curb. French designer, Philippe Briand, has done just that for Jenneau’s new line of Sun Odyssey family cruisers. By starting with a clean sheet, Briand re-thought how we move about on deck and below, and the results on the Jeanneau 440 are game changing.

Jeanneau unveiled the first hull of their 440 in Annapolis with dramatic flair. On command, the plastic that sheathed half the boat...
