2013 Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 409 | La Quinta
With its angular styling and solid performance, the Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 409 was an award-winning design when first launched in 2011.
La Quinta’s hull is incredibly robust; she is constructed with hand-laid solid fibreglass, finished with a protective barrier coat and ISO gelcoat, and stiffened with a fibreglass inner grid. The deck is injection moulded with discontinuous balsa coring, while the keel is cast iron. Her finish quality is extremely good for a production cruising boat.
The yacht boasts a large cockpit as the transom has a fold-down swim platform instead of a full-size scoop. A generous solid cockpit table provides a strong brace point amidships, and the bench seats have high, comfortable seatbacks. The two shallow cockpit lockers are also easily accessible. The forward deck is clean and uncluttered, with all working lines routed through conduits underneath.
With both the main and the jib sheets led aft to the helm positions, it’s possible for the helmsperson to control both the main and jib without leaving the wheels.
La Quinta features the popular two-stateroom layout. In this configuration, you enjoy a very large forward master stateroom with a wide V-berth, and an ensuite. The other stateroom is aft to starboard and comprises a large head aft to port. Accessible through the head, there is also a large, dedicated storage/systems space.
The yacht’s galley enjoys generous storage space with a large-capacity top-loading refrigerator with a very efficient three-stage compressor. The interior of the refrigerator box is well organised and easy to access.
The dominant feature in the saloon is the fold-over dinette table to starboard, which works exceedingly well. Mounted on a fixed central pedestal, it can be quickly lowered to convert the wrap-around settee into a double berth.
The Sun Odyssey 409 provides cruising families with a comfortable, versatile platform that looks sharp and sails well.
With a sail wardrobe of nine sails, La Quinta is set up to sail anywhere anytime in nearly all conditions. In strong winds, you will find this boat is reassuringly stiff, partly due to the hard chine in the topsides running aft from amidships. The 40hp diesel engine also pushes the hull along nicely.
Lying in Brisbane, La Quinta is priced to sell and ready for your inspection.
