Sun Odyssey 49 is a three-cabin boat with 4 heads (it can be transformed into 4 cab. version as charter-oriented four-cabin/four-head layout). It features a long navigation desk with scads of drawer space underneath and plenty of room for electronics. Another versatile feature is the twin aft cabins, which are separated by a collapsible bulkhead that can be removed to create a super-huge double bunk. While under way, even pounding into a headwind, the fungible bulkhead, did not rattle or vibrate.
The deck layout is fairly standard for a modern charter-oriented boat of this size. Twin wheels provide excellent all-around visibility, and the fixed cockpit table makes a great foot brace in the super-wide cockpit when the boat is well heeled. Up forward, there is also a full-size, segregated sail locker with a ladder leading down into it, a feature normally found only on larger boats.
Boat has an in-mast furling main, you will simply enjoy sailing with Jeanneaus—their helms have a smooth, positive feel with a fat sweet spot; their sail plans are powerful but not overwhelming; their hulls have good initial stability and track well—and this one was no exception. With 20-knot headwind, you can get better than 8 knots through the water under full sail. The motion is mild, and the boat felt quite solid.
Top speed is achieved at an apparent-wind angle of 45 degrees; at 40 degrees, she was a knot slower but did not feel as though we were wallowing. Under power, in flat water with no wind at 2800 rpm speed is 7.3 knots. Sun Odyssey is a worthy successor to its ancestors—solid, predictable, and fun to sail, with a very useful multifaceted interior layout.
