Sun Odyssey 380: A highly anticipated renewal

July 22, 2021

The Sun Odyssey 380 will be making her North American Debut at the United States Sailboat Show in Annapolis in October.

The Sun Odyssey 380, has fulfilled her mission by offering a safe, simple, and enjoyable cruising experience. In addition to being particularly safe, with unencumbered sidedecks and comfortable coamings, this Sun Odyssey features a lower boom, facilitating access to the sail and increasing the sail area.

While the design recalls the classics of the line, consideration has been given to perception of interior volume and the simplification of lines, offering a feeling of calm. Defined by clean, contemporary lines, the interior is at once surprising and unified, aesthetically pleasing, and comfortable.

SalonThe interior design reveals the surprising potential for a sailboat of this size. The bulkheads and the treatment of interior volume have been reconsidered in an atypical fashion to visually and physically augment usable space on board. The eye follows the interior lines easily and without interruption.

The saloon is exceptionally bright, with a warm, harmonious design. The starboard lateral sofa is a major advantage in this inviting space, favouring relaxation. Featuring a convertible design, it affords comfort at sea and at port, with an asymmetrical mast bulkhead that allows for comfortable seating and an armrest, as well as an appreciable volume of storage space.

StateroomThe contemporary, L-shaped galley of the Sun Odyssey 380 is perfectly laid out. This ultra-functional galley features multiple storage areas. A large-capacity drawer is accessible at the centre of the sailboat to complement the storage compartments in the galley.

Features:

A hard chine continues to the bow of the boat for a more powerful and stable hull – An inverted bow for smooth entry into the water, better weight distribution, and a distinctive look – A forefoot clear of the water for less wet surface area and greater speed – Twin rudders with self-aligning rudder bearings, for greater responsiveness at the helm – A tunnel-mounted bowthruster pour greater ease of handling – An L-shaped keel – An integrated bowsprit.

LayoutThis 38-footer features an optional lifting keel with the same performance as a deep keel. Complemented with the option of beaching legs, this lifting keel version perfectly meets the expectations of those who wish to sail in shallower waters and beach at low tide.

In the owner’s cabin, this new model offers a parental suite private head and shower compartment and a generous hanging locker. With her large rectangular berths, the mattresses are wide and comfortable, just like at home! The guest cabins also feature a contemporary and harmonious layout, whether in the two- or three-cabin version. A spacious separate shower is also possible on the two-cabin version.

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail

By Katherine Stone

There is nothing more that I enjoy than being with friends and messing about in boats. Messing about in brand-new boats on a champagne sailing day on Lake Ontario at the beginning of the summer doesn’t get any better. To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.

Destinations

Telegraph Cove—from Resource Community to Tourist Delight

Text and photos by Marianne Scott

Telegraph Cove is a small indent situated on Johnstone Strait in the Salish Sea, 15nm southeast of Port McNeill and near Robson Bight, famous for its orca-rubbing beaches. The village has experienced many iterations with a long history—the harbour once served as a summer camp for the Kwakwaka’wakw who fished and hunted here beginning about 8,000 years ago. Many of their descendants still live in the area.

It’s a hopping place in the summer—winter only caretakers remain on site.
