Sun Odyssey 490

Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 490

The New Standard

The largest yacht in the Sun Odyssey line, the Sun Odyssey 490 introduces next-level innovation, performance and comfort. With the launch of the 490, designers Philllippe Briand and Jean-Marc Piaton set a new standard for Jeanneau’s Sun Odyssey range – and the 50-foot cruising market – with this flagship of the “Walk Around” series.
Both the 490 and her monohull sister, the Sun Odyssey 440, sport the popular “Walk Around Deck” that incorporates unobstructed side decks for unprecedented ease of movement and safety and comfort – an innovation that helped the Sun Odyssey 490 to win the 2019 Cruising World “Boat of the Year Award”.
Take your cruising life to the next level with this 49-foot monohull that checks every box – a vessel as spacious and refined as she is powerful, safe and efficient.


Outdoor Ease

Ease of movement, lounging and ultimate comfort are optimized topside of the Sun Odyssey 490. From the “Walk Around Deck” to the massive cockpit, there is no shortage of lounging and dining space that perfectly accommodates entertaining a larger crew. Relaxation is further enhanced with cockpit seating that converts to a massive lounging sunbed where guests are sure to congregate. Swimming and water sports are made all the better with the large stern swim platform that folds down with the push of a button.

The captain will be well-pleased with the ergonomic cockpit layout, and all lines leading to the helm station where the boat can be easily managed even when single-handed.


Comfort Redefined

Comfort reigns below decks, thanks in part to a new hull design that added even more volume to yachts of the Sun Odyssey line. The open concept main saloon is flooded in natural light from the multiple rows of windows and hatches. The U-shaped galley is strategically placed to assist the cook with minimized motion while underway, and the nav station with large chart table and bench can easily serve double-duty as an onboard home office.
The Sun Odyssey 490 truly sets itself apart with the expansive forward master suite featuring a square queen sized bed with ample walking space, large armoire and separate shower stall with impressive 6’-6” headroom.
The Sun Odyssey 490 is available in 4 efficient layouts to suit your cruising needs: 2-cabins/2-heads, 3-cabins/2-heads, 4-cabins/4-heads or 5-cabins/3-heads.
