Manufacturer Details

The Jeanneau 42 Deck Saloon concept offers interior volume and light while maintaining a stylish exterior. This is the work of our Italian designer Garroni, who created the Sun Odyssey 54 DS. Almost 200 Sun Odyssey 5 4DS have been built in 3 years, a world record for a 54-footer. The Sun Odyssey 42 DS combines the luxury of a deck saloon with performance under sail thanks to the architect Marc Lombard who also designed the Sun Odyssey 35.
