Jeanneau 64

According to Jeanneau, “Life aboard a yacht is lived in the fresh air.” That philosophy was used to design the 64 with a focus on relaxation, reading, cooking, dining and sunbathing. There is an exterior galley that includes a grill and plancha, sink and large refrigeration compartment. The transom is also a sundeck and swim platform with a tender  garage, but optionally, the closed transom can be replaced with a walk-through-style transom that increases cockpit area.
