The Sun Odyssey 389 is one of the most popular models offered by Jeanneau and a favorite among SailTime Detroit Members. It offers the best of both worlds with a wide, open cockpit for entertaining and outstanding accommodations below deck. The 389 is also a Marc Lombard design, so for the racers out there, this means that the 389 really sails! Even sailors who usually enjoy cruising appreciate that the 389 routinely outperforms boats that are much larger.
On deck, the cockpit area stands out for entertaining and ease of sailing. Our 389 in SailTime Detroit is equipped with a furling mainsail. This option, along with the standard furling genoa and all the control lines running back to the cockpit, is why two people can easily sail the 389. In fact, it’s so user-friendly that one person can sail it with a bit of practice! The drop-down transom offers easy access to the water and proves to be the most popular spot for the kids while anchored.
