Sun Odyssey 30i

In order to maintain the foothold in the market of 30ft, Jeanneau presents the Sun Odyssey 30i. Habitability has been the main issue in the design of this boat. The interior height in all cabins is above 1.80m - 6ft, a rare quality in boats of this size. The transversal bed in the aft cabin is maybe more handy in the ports than out on the sea.

Even though the performance is not the first ambition of this boat, the hull designed by Lombard comes out well and the sail plan is quite versatile. However, for those who wish to trim more their boats, the 'Performance' version offers much more attractive fittings.
