Sun Odyssey 509 - Jeanneau's flagship of the season
Drawing on the latest technological advances in naval architecture and design, the Sun Odyssey 509 embodies all the aspects a Jeanneau owner desires. Designed by Philippe Briand, the Sun Odyssey 509 combines timeless design, exceptional seaworthiness and unmatched comfort. The high-aspect ratio sail plan allows for a large selection of different sails. The rig can be adapted to a variety of different types of sailing.
Each head compartment has a separate shower
The interior design, by Philippe Briand, is centred around solid wood, matte varnish, light colours and indirect lighting. Every detail of the Sun Odyssey 509 has been studied to bring together the functional and the aesthetic. The result: smooth lines and a sense of well-being and comfort. In the cabins, space, comfort and functionality are the key points. Each head compartment is equipped with a separate shower. Large berths, vast storage lockers and numerous hatches and hull ports with integrated shades reinforce the image of this flagship.
'360 Docking' makes manoeuvering easy
Whether at home or abroad, manoeuvring at port is often difficult exacting. This is why Jeanneau, together with the ZF Group, has developed an entirely new system, called 360 Docking. The concept is simple: the engine is coupled with a pivoting sail drive, capable of rotating 360°. The joystick transmits the commands to a control box, which uses the autopilot to lock the helm. Then, a simple movement of the joystick controls the orientation and the thrust of the pod, as well as the bowthruster.
