The Jeanneau Yachts 55 has been hailed as the best cruising sailboat of 2024 by Cruising World, and for good reason.
With its imposing dimensions of 16.93 meters in length and 4.99 meters in width, this new Jeanneau creation embodies a shipowning vocation that prioritizes privacy and comfort, taking inspiration from the layout of spaces typical of multihulls.
The Jeanneau team, in collaboration with renowned naval architect Philippe Briand for the hull and interior designer Andrew Winch for the layout and accommodation, has created a vessel that stands out for its innovations, originality and audacity. This Jeanneau Yachts 55 represents the uncompromising answer to the needs of sailors seeking beauty and adventure at sea.
The deck layout was designed with cunning and flexibility.
The wheelhouses have been moved forward to create a large aft sunbathing area, while the partial cockpit cover provides shelter and comfort. Space for an external chart table with GPS display and autopilot control has also been included, protected by a large wraparound windshield and hard top providing exceptional visibility.
These innovations make navigation pleasant in any season and latitude, bringing the pleasure of navigation back to the center of life on board.
The stern relaxation area offers two dinettes that can be transformed into sunbathing areas and a gigantic platform that easily opens for direct access to the sea, thanks to a hydraulic jack. This design is designed for offshore sailing enthusiasts who wish to enjoy open-air sailing with elegance, performance and comfort for long distances, ensuring serene and unforgettable sailing experiences.
The owner’s cabin, bright, refined and comfortable, occupies the bow of the boat, with sliding doors that create an open space environment with the dinette once opened. The guest cabins, located aft, are accessible directly from the cockpit via two separate companionways, offering comfort and privacy.
The two areas dedicated to guests are set up with private bathrooms and, for one of them, also a relaxation sofa and a mini bar, completing the experience of luxury and comfort on board.
In summary, the Jeanneau Yachts 55 is a testament to Jeanneau’s commitment to creating high-quality boats that meet the needs of the most demanding sailors, offering unrivaled elegance, performance and comfort for unforgettable and uncompromising sailing experiences.
