The Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 349 is the latest in the current contemporary design from Jeanneau. With pure lines, a spacious interior and an inviting cockpit she is a delight to sail with her twin wheels and twin rudders.
What makes Pickle so interesting is that she is a 349 with a lifting keel. She draws just 1.26m with the keel retracted, but 2.54m down for an excellent sailing performance. This is perfect for the Solent and the surrounding areas as it enables you to explore parts that standard keel yachts either cannot reach or are strictly limited on tides.
This generation of boat has many new features, from a built in bow spit to fly an asymmetric from with ease, to the German main sheet system previously only found on much larger yachts, which allows full control of the mainsheet from the helm position. Pickle is supplied with a powerful 21HP Yanmar engine ensuring that you can always punch the tide with ease. The Sun Odyssey 349 is a yacht that you should see before deciding if you need a larger boat. Pickle is coded for 8 people, sleeping 6 in 2 cabins and the saloon, to category 2 (60 miles from a safe haven). She is therefore a very capable cross Channel yacht.
