Jenneau Sun Odyssey 36i • The new Jeanneau 36i combines a sleek Mark Lombard-designed hull with a simple but powerful rig that results in a cruising boat that will truly sail well. And, Jeanneau offers the boat with a “performance” package that increases sail area and stiffness for even better sailing qualities.
Like the successful Sun Odyssey 39i, the new 36-footer has a unique injection-molded deck that enables the builder to create very high quality work that is finely finished both inside and out.
The styling of the new 36i is sleek and purposeful. The cockpit provides a comfortable area for up to six adults. The boat has a single large destroyer wheel so you can easily sit to windward or leeward to steer.
Down below the interior is finished in a warm, traditional teak with a teak and holly sole. The overhead is molded white and accented with varnished teak strips. The interior comes in two versions, one with two aft cabins and the other with only one. The single aft-cabin version has much larger head with a separate shower and a ton of storage space in the port quarter.
The galley to starboard is compact but has plenty of counter space, twin sinks and a large refer box. The nav station has been integrated into the port settee so it can double as a table for games or projects. The U-shaped dinette will seat four comfortably. The forward cabin has a good-sized Vberth with a hatch above it for ventilation.
A compact cruiser that offers a lot of space for living and very good sailing characteristics, the new Sun Odyssey 36i will be a real head-turner, particularly as it sails by you.
