French brand Jeanneau has confirmed that the 20.7-metre Jeanneau Yachts 65 will be one of its upcoming releases.
Scheduled to be presented later this year and designed by Phillipe Briand, this model was crafted in line with the brand’s characteristics of combining seaworthy performance with an optimised owner experience.
This priority is visible in the model’s semi-custom construction, with owner’s being provided four opportunities by Jeanneau to personalise their yacht.
One example of this is how those looking for higher performance are afforded a fixed attachment for the mainsheet, an open cockpit and optimised rigging choices. But simultaneously, the Jeanneau Yachts 65 has the option of a mainsail arch hard top, a self-tacking jib and an exterior galley for something more comfortable.
Also available for customisation is the deck and hull plan and the interior and exterior finish, each providing varying layouts.
Owners are also provided with the choice of either two spacious owner’s cabins with private bathrooms or up to four standard berths. Jeanneau has stated that each version can also include a lateral transition into a walk-in closet or additional berth.
Regardless of the layout, the Jeanneau Yachts 65 features a unique aft transom that can transform into a sundeck, allowing access to the tender garage.
Located further aft are twin helms close to the winches, allowing space for an XXL cockpit. Forward of the two large storage lockers is an immense space, allowing two cockpit tables to be electrically lowered to transform the area into a swim platform.
The twelve deck hatches, complemented by an additional hatch in the sail locker/skipper’s cabin, afford a unique monohull experience of immense light and abundant ventilation.
The interior of the Jeanneau Yachts 65 also includes a U-shaped galley, fiddles, multiple storage compartments, cabinet closures and handrails.
The saloon hosts a starboard table and U-shaped bench seating for up to eight people, a port-side sofa and a chart table.
