If you are looking for a well maintained smaller yacht, suitable for a couple of young family, then the Sun Odyssey 29.2 may well suit your requirements.

The Sun Odyssey 29.2 is small family cruising yacht suited to a couple or young family and can be comfortably sailed by a crew of two. She provides two cabins and so suits ‘Mum & Dad up front’ with one or two children in the stern cabin.


At 29’ the Sun Odyssey 29.2 benefits from being smaller and lighter than larger yachts meaning she can be comfortably managed by a crew of two. This makes her ideal for a couple or a family with young children. Like all Jeanneau yachts she handles well providing safe and stable sailing.

Instrumentation includes a binnacle compass and Raymarine ST60 tridata in the cockpit and a GPS, DSC VHF radio & EPIRB by the chart table. Charts and pilot guides are provided.

The yacht is equipped CD/radio player with speakers in the main cabin and external speakers in the cockpit, allowing you to listen to music as you sail.


The Sun Odyssey 29.2 offers a main saloon, two cabins and a single toilet/shower room (‘heads’ in sailing talk) with hot water. Each cabin has a double berth giving four berths plus the saloon seats are convertible to berths if children don’t want (or can’t!) share a cabin together. The aft cabin has a hanging wardrobe.

Please note that the maximum capacity of the 29.2 is four persons including children and that the forward berths are only suitable for people up to 5’ 7” (1.70m) tall.
