Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 49

Anyone have any experience with these sailboats? I've just been offered a delivery job, on a difficult route. Any opinions would be gratefully received.

Steve.

Motley, I worked as a service tech for the Jeanneau Dealer in Kemah Texas and spent a lot of time on the boats. I am also a long time sailor and cruiser. I am very impressed with the newer boats, you did not say what year it was. And of course a "difficult route" can mean a lot of things. So it is hard to answer your question based on the little to no information you have provided. Chuck

Good boat, I took one across the English Channel in a gale...Anywhere in the Caribbean it is a very adequate boat.
However, who is the delivery company. There is a UK company that had less than a stallar reputation.
IM for details of the UK company.

Actually, I am the delivery company. A prestigious outfit called "Cartagena Yacht Services"; a major player in the maritime industry, CYS boasts a huge, highly qualified staff of errrr, me!

Its a very good sea boat as are most Jeanneaus, delivered a few through some very bad stuff. It will get you there.
