New boats 2017

2016 September 1

We run down some of the new sailboats hitting the water for 2017

Jeanneau 58

The list of options on this Philippe Briand design reads list a list of amenities at a high-end resort. With your choice of two to five cabins, as well as a variety of sail plans, this boat is able to meet a variety of needs. One notable constant is the impressive cockpit. With winches within reach of the helms, electric rewind winches near the lounge seats and a large cockpit table, there is room for those relaxing and those trimming the sails to cohabitate nicely. The tender garage will store about a 9-foot RIB, while keeping the swim platform and steps accessible. The sailplan options include a 135% overlapping genoa, with ball bearing track for ease of adjustment under sail.
