Designed by Daniel Andrieu, the Sun Odyssey 40 hull is not only fast, it contains a world of space, comfort, and elegance. The Sun Odyssey 40 represents quality, innovation, and fun - the fun of hanging out in a spacious cockpit with its unique twin-wheel steering stations (not found on other 39-foot boats), the fun of moving about on a wide deck design, and the fun of a cozy interior (in a 2 or 3 cabin layout). The cockpit width that extends all the way to the stern is exceptional. With lots of room for the crew, nobody is in the way. With twin steering wheels, ergonomic cockpit benches, plenty of storage space for all cruising gear, a folding cockpit table, and an accessible mainsail traveler on the roof, the Sun Odyssey 40 has the space and comfort desired for easy sailing. The waterdrop-shaped stern has built-in steps and a shower, making it easy to jump in for a swim. With such shallow drafts, it's easy to approach protected anchorages. Equipped with a standard genoa furler and a semi-full batten mainsail (furling mast optional), it is a simple boat to maneuver under all weather conditions. The shrouds are located inboard, opening up the passageways for safe and sure movements on deck. The stylish windows and quality hardware show the best that the Sun Odyssey 40 has to offer. The Sun Odyssey 40 comes with several different layouts where the priority is on maximum comfort. The spacious salon is finished with the traditional Jeanneau attention to detail, and the feeling below is that of warmth and relaxation. Other features of the Sun Odyssey 40 are: a solid teak table, wide bench seats, captain's area to port with nav station table, a complete galley, and numerous storage lockers. The head compartment, along with the standard amenities, also has a separate shower zone. The aft cabins are spacious and inviting, with lots of storage space as well.
