Why members at SailTime Detroit love the Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 389.
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.
Below deck, the first thing you’ll notice is the headroom and large windows that offer plenty of natural lighting. Entering the main salon, the interior feels open and airy with a dining table that seats six. The galley has plenty of counter space and a large fridge with a freezer compartment featuring a top and side-load door, so you won’t have to “dive in” to retrieve items. There are two large staterooms, each with hanging lockers and big beds, perfect for those overnight excursions. Our 389 in SailTime Detroit features air conditioning with a heating mode for the variety of weather that Michigan offers. SailTime Detroit members enjoy their time below just as much as being underway.
Finally, members at SailTime Detroit can enjoy our 389’s bow thruster, ensuring a good docking experience to end their day of great sailing.
