Louise | Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 35
Designed by Marc Lombard, the Sun Odyssey 35 was inspired by the success of its big sister, the 37, and incorporates many of the same features, including a similar modern profile. A spacious boat, both on deck and below, with an overall beam of 11 feet, 5 inches which is carried almost all the way aft, creating a wedge-shaped hull, high in stability with great off the wind performance. Below the waterline the Sun Odyssey has a high-lift external iron keel and a balanced rudder. Like all Jeanneaus, the 35 is well engineered and constructed with the good seakeeping firmly in mind. The steering console features Whitlock cable steering and molded pods for sailing instruments. The 35 inch leather-covered wheel provides good leverage and is not too big to make your way aft to the swim steps. The self-tailing primaries are easily reached from the helm.
