Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 32i

Brief details

Builder

Chantiers Jeanneau, Les Herbiers, France

The Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 32i is a modern cruising yacht with good performance and an excellent aft cabin. The Sun Odyssey 32i hull appears identical to that of the Sun Fast 32i which was aimed at those looking for club racing as well as cruising. The main differences were in deck gear and sails. Designed by Philippe Briand and built from 2005 to 2008, the Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 32i was a replacement model for the earlier Sun Odyssey 32. The 32 and 32i are in fact very similar, and quite obviously share many components. In 2008 the 32i was replaced by the 33i, which whilst looking at first glance quite similar, had some some substantial changes in hull construction methods, clearly to save build costs. The 33i is currently the smallest in Jeanneau's cruising yacht range.

The Sun Odyssey 32i was offered with a choice of "deep keel", "shallow keel" or "lifting keel" versions, and with the choice of tiller or wheel steering, tiller being arguably better in a yacht of this size, and the normal choice for the Sun Fast version. The yacht illustrated is a deep fin keel version with tiller steering.

 

The shallow fin and the lift keel (centreboard inside an external shallow iron winged keel) versions have progressive higher ballast weight and hence displacement to retain stability.

Rig

She has a single-spreader fractional rig, with all reefing lines and main halyard led back to the cockpit, where these plus mainsheet and kicker are controlled by two coachroof winches

Coachroof
Cockpit

The cockpit is very clearly designed for the boat to be tiller-steered, with angled sides to the cockpit coaming giving a comfortable perch when heeled slightly and using a tiller extension, which is removed in these photos. The genoa winches are well aft, within easy reach of the helm if required. Also, in a boat of this size, with tiller steering you get a substantially larger usable cockpit area when not sailing as there is no wheel and pedestal in the way. Nevertheless, market forces meant that many were sold with wheel steering - modern boat buyers like wheels.

Rudder

Jeanneau retained traditional shaft drive longer than many other builders: this has significant advantages in long-term maintenance compared to Saildrives. It also puts the prop near the rudder which makes it easier and faster to kick the stern round with a short burst of power when maneuvering. The original fixed prop on this yacht was replaced with a folding prop with ropecutter.
