The Sun Odyssey 439 is a large cruising yacht providing spacious and comfortable accommodation for two families or group of 8 or 10 adults. Accommodation is in four cabins providing eight permanent berths with two ‘heads’. The main cabin can also provide two additional berths if required although we do not recommend these other than for children.

At 43’ the Sun Odyssey 439 is a spacious four-cabin yacht and consequently provides a lot of internal space. She can be sailed by a couple, although being larger with more sail area, a larger crew allows work to be shared and gives more hands when mooring.


The Sun Odyssey 439 can be managed by a crew of two although at 43’ a third or fouth set of hands always makes mooring and other tasks simpler and shares the load. Like all Jeanneau yachts she sails well providing entertaining, yet safe and stable sailing as you would expect from a large cruising yacht.


The Greek Sails Sun Odyssey 439 yachts are equipped with twin-wheel steering and roller-furling genoa. We then have yacht options of either in-mast furling or semi-battened slab reefing mainsail with lazy jacks & sail bag. The in-mast mainsails are reefed by being partially furled into the mast while the semi-battened mainsails use single-line reefing with reefs 1 & 2 rigged.

There is an inflatable dinghy with outboard to help you get ashore if you anchor-off or simply to allow you to explore.

Instrumentation includes twin binnacle compasses, ST70 multifunction colour display instrument in the cockpit and a Garmin chart plotter at the navigation desk in the cabin.

The 439 is also equipped with a Raymarine inboard (built-in) autopilot, 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 439 offers a main saloon, four cabins and two toilet/shower rooms (‘heads’ in sailing talk), each with hot water and toilet holding tank. Both heads includes a separate shower and toilet/basin area separated by a folding shower screen.

Each cabin has a double berth giving eight berths, plus the main saloon settee & table are convertible to give another large double berth. Each cabin has a hanging wardrobe.

The galley includes a double sink, top-entry fridge, twin-burner cooker with oven and plenty of storage both behind the worktop & cooker and below the sinks.
