Jeanneau Yachts History
Just like so many successful boatbuilders, Henri Jeanneau turned a passion into a profession. His first loves were airplanes and fast cars. Until he discovered power boats and racing. In 1957, he built a wooden hull power boat so he could compete in Paris’s six-hour classique. Guess what. He came in first. With the technological advances of the ‘60s and the fact that consumers had more leisure time, Jeanneau turned from power boats to cruising yachts and eventually to building Jeanneau sailboats.
Today, Jeanneau Yachts is one of the largest sailboat manufacturers in the world, offering contemporary, environmentally friendly prestige yachts ranging from 42 to 64 feet. Always on the cutting-edge of design and sail technology, Jeanneau Yachts invests heavily in R&D so its sailboats continually push the envelope on style and performance.
Jeanneau Yachts: Cutting-Edge Design and Sail Technology
42-foot Jeanneau Sailboat
Expert design makes this Jeanneau Yacht a winner. Every inch serves a purpose and every foot caters to comfort. Decks are wide and easy to navigate, and there’s headroom to spare, especially in the cockpit area and aft cabin. The rounded bow and stern decks shed water fast, efficiently keeping the boat cutting through the waves. All the elements that make extended cruising a pleasure – lots of storage, generous nav station and galley, easy access to the head, comfortable berths and an open, airy salon – can be found in 42-foot Jeanneau sailboats for sale.
Jeanneau 50 Sailboat
Designed by naval architect, Philippe Briand, and styled by the Garroni Design team, Jeanneau 50 sailboats for sale have streamlined keels for easy handling and excellent performance, as well as comfortable, contemporary interiors. With the focus on easy access, relaxing and generous spaces, Jeanneau 50 sailboats feature open-air salons with ample bench seating, three-part cockpits with twin steering wheels, huge cockpit tables and lounge areas. Mechanical assistance from large winches and electric windlasses facilitate couple’s cruising.
Jeanneau 51 Sailboat
Designed by Philippe Briand and styled by Andrew Winch the Jeanneau 51 is the quintessential example of why Jeanneau Yachts are in such demand: Ease of handling, exquisite attention to detail and incomparable quality. Categorized as a self-sufficient pleasure yacht, Jeanneau 51 sailboats for sale vary because of their many customizable features (e.g., wine cellar, VIP guest cabin, captain’s private access to cockpit) along with a trio of cabin options and two draft versions (deep keel and shoal keel). An aft terrace, u-shaped galley, the finest wood and interior materials and the largest cockpit in its size category make cruising aboard a Jeanneau 51 sailboat pure pleasure.
Jeanneau 54 Yacht
In 2004, the Jeanneau 54 launched Jeanneau Yacht’s luxury sailboat segment. The brainchild of naval architect Philippe Briand and designer Andrew Winch, the 54 sailboat combined sleek deck profiles, ergonomic details, high-end materials (e.g., leather, teak or natural oak woodwork) and as many as five cabins. This exceptional sailing yacht was engineered and designed to fit every owner’s vision of the ideal cruising experience.
Jeanneau 64 Sailboat
Once again, Jeanneau Yachts ushered in a new design era. In 2014, Jeanneau’s go-to design-build team, architect Philippe Briand and designer Andrew Winch, transformed the company’s legendary line once again to build a best-in-class live-aboard superyacht. Based on sales, they succeeded.
This semi-custom flagship has thousands of woods, fabrics, leathers and interior/exterior layouts to choose from. It is faster, more secure and has the interior volume of larger yachts. Focusing on how yachters actually spend their time onboard, Jeanneau 64 sailboats for sale enjoy generous, flexible living spaces and multiple outdoor areas for socializing or quietly communing with nature. Advanced engineering and high-end system design make the Jeanneau Yacht 64 fast, secure and a pleasure to sail. And, the superyacht toy garage makes launching and retrieving a 10-foot tender effortless.
