Jeanneau 54: Leisure Living

The most recent addition to the range the new Jeanneau 54 is eagerly awaited with the first one sold in Australia currently in-build and to be displayed at the Sydney International Show in July. Although it’s a smaller sibling to the award winning 64 that was released last year and there are common themes, especially with the interior which was developed by Andrew Winch Design (he of superyacht fame), the 54 is a unique design fully developed for its own size characteristics with some very innovative features that really make it a stand-out design. With Naval architecture by Philippe Briand this is as always an elegant design, and with the input of the Jeanneau team who are well established as World leaders in production yachts over 50 feet you would expect something special, and it certainly is.

The stern treatment is ingenious with retractable davits and a swim-platform come lounging ‘terrace’ that opens electrically. At the forward end of the generous cockpit are recessed lounge seats which offer security and comfort.

The rig is modern with short overlap headsails, self-tacking jib or self-tacking staysail and Code 0 off the wind sailing.


Down below Winch Design has created a modern stylish interior with a high level finish and a lot of variations that allow you to customise the interior for your use. There is also a very innovative layout option that features the galley aft in the starboard quarter which then creates even more living space in the saloon area. Quite ingenious and the first example to Sydney will feature this layout.
