New Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 479 Is Now in the Offshore Sailing School Fleet

Offshore Sailing School and Jeanneau America Announce New Partnership

Offshore Sailing School and Jeanneau America have joined together to provide a premium learning experience for those who want to own or charter sailing yachts. At the 2017 U.S. Sailboat Show in Annapolis, Maryland, Offshore Sailing School took delivery of the newest addition to its cruising course fleet – a four-cabin Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 479.

“This new Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 479 is the start of a long relationship between our companies to provide premium cruising course experiences on brand new yachts each year,” explains Doris Colgate, President and CEO of Offshore Sailing School. The 479 has been leased through Florida Yacht Group.

The “Star” of the U.S. Sailboat Show’s Take the Wheel Program

During the Sailboat Show, the Sun Odyssey 479 was one of four Jeanneaus in the Take the Wheel Interactive Workshop and boat demo program. Two of Offshore Sailing School’s cruising instructors showed participants the ropes aboard the Sun Odyssey 479 during the show. Then the boat sailed south to its new home on Captiva Island, Florida, where Offshore Sailing School will conduct week-long cruising certification courses and other training programs. “This impressive yacht is perfect for those who are thinking about owning a large cruising boat, or planning to charter 48 to 54 footers which have become so popular in the islands and abroad,” explains Colgate.

Just Four Students Per Week Can Enjoy Dedicated Training on the 479

The Live Aboard Course on the Jeanneau 479 is in high demand. While there are ongoing Fast Track to Cruising and other courses on Offshore Sailing School’s Jeanneau 439s and Leopard 48, this brand new “Queen of the Fleet” is expected to be sold out for courses throughout the year. So don’t wait to sign up!
