With the first of the new 44 Deck-Saloon’s arriving to Sydney in February the Jeanneau Australia group sent a journalist to France to take one out for a test, and at the same time visit the factory. Patrick ‘ten pin’ Bollin is writing an article which will feature in the late January edition of Trade-A-Boat. We await with anticipation, but from my conversations with him since he was absolutely blown away by the sophistication of the factory. And despite the cold (boat tests on the Western coast ofFrancein the middle of winter are brisk!) was mightily impressed with this new design.
