Sun Odyssey 29.2
Deep draft

The Sun Odyssey 29.2 is a consensual cruiser offered by Jeanneau by the late 90's. The high freeboard, the limited sail area and the stripped deck hardware shows that the key word is here: comfort. Indeed the cockpit and transom are perfectly designed and a table can even be installed to enjoy this exterior space. Once through the companion way we discover large and thoughtful accommodations, with a special mention for the aft cabin and toilet compartment with dimensions that surprise on a boat of this size.

Seaworthiness is correct but the high freeboard and low aspect ratio of the appendages limit the ability to go upwind, especially in the breeze. The Sun Odyssey 29.2 is beachable whatever the version: with crutches for the fin keel version and directly on the hull bottom for centerboard version then stabilized by her two rudders.
