Best Boats 2016: Jeanneau 64
The French builder’s new flagship is much more than just a scaled-up version of its smaller boats. Jeanneau’s production maestro Erik Stromberg spent years plotting the creation of this boat with yacht designer Philippe Briand and interior-design maven Andrew Winch, and they have succeeded in marrying a super-yacht sense of style and luxury with a mass-production building ethic. The result, our judges agreed, is a top-flight luxury cruiser delivered at an extremely competitive price point.
This “mini superyacht” features an extremely flexible accommodation plan, with options for twin cabins and master staterooms aft or forward, separate crew quarters, a dedicated passage cabin or navigation office, and three different portside saloon configurations. The core of the interior is a well-laid-out galley and a proper “big-yacht” engine room and systems space. Artful styling touches include elegant wooden sinks in the heads and leather-wrapped handles on all the cabinetry. On deck, the working cockpit aft is segregated from an immense lounging area amidships that features collapsible twin cockpit tables. You’ll also find an enormous dinghy garage in the transom, complete with an electric rail system that makes it easy to launch and recover hefty tenders and water toys.
Despite the boat’s size, it remains easy to sail. Over half of the buyers so far are enjoying the Jeanneau 64 without having to employ professional crew. The boat has also been configured to accommodate the revolutionary new Assisted Sail Trim automatic-sailing system being developed by Harken in cooperation with Jeanneau, and so promises to become even easier to sail in the future. jeanneau.com
