Sun Odyssey 410
Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 440 is not literally new but its version with lifting keel, which totally changes not only its behavior but essentially its program, while modifying the interior and some essential architectural and war parameters. It will be necessary to see what added performance confers the folding keel and if it is sufficient argument to deserve the victory.

Grand Soleil 42 LC
The iconic Italian brand has become an award-winning 46-foot cruiser in a more compact and therefore more popular format. Almost visually identical, the Grand Soleil 42 LC comes in a 2-cab version as standard, which offers plenty of port storage, making it an ideal option for prolonged navigation in blue waters. But there is also a choice of 3 cabins with double or split berths. For better performance, you can fly a Code Zero or asymmetric spinnaker from the long bowsprit that keeps the anchor away from the vertical arc. The contemporary interior design with lots of natural light and the bright top creates a pleasant environment that will not age quickly.
