This yacht, unlike so many other new designs of this size, does not have the freeboard of a supertanker! Renowned naval architect Philippe Briand has purposefully kept the freeboard low to make it easier to board the yacht, with the added bonus that it looks exceptionally elegant on the water, as do so many of Briand’s designs. Follow the link to a new video of the Sun Odyssey 509.
Like the other yachts in the new ‘9’ series the SO509 is set up for ease of handling, but also has some nice performance options such as below deck furler and a healthy sail plan for the performance version ideal for such events as Hamilton Island Race Week. Full details on request.
