"Oneiro" is a beautiful Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 409 built in 2014. This popular yacht was crowned the 2011 European Yacht of the Year in the Family Cruiser category and is perfectly designed for sailing holidays in the Mediterranean.
Oneiro has a traditional slab reefing mainsail set up which gets the most out of her performance orientated hull. She sails really well in the typical conditions we have in the Ionian region. Her uncluttered deck with all control lines covered and led back to the helm mean she can be handled short handed. As with all yachts on the Nisos Ionian fleet, we add extra anchor chain (70m on this yacht) and an excellent Rocna anchor which helps you stay put and the extra length chain gives you so many more anchoring options at lunch times and in the evenings.
She has an excellent specification including autopilot, bow thruster and a good sized bimini and sprayhood. Her large cockpit is large enough for 6 comfortably with high back bench seats and a solid teak cockpit table. The twin helm arrangement provides more cockpit space and makes access to the aft swim deck easy. The addition of the swim deck on the 409, creates a larger cockpit and when lowered in those beautiful bays increases your living space.
Down below Oneiro has 3 good sized double cabins all with good ventilation and 12v cabin fans. Both heads have holding tanks. The galley has plenty of storage space, gas stove and a highly efficient top loading fridge. The dining table can seat 6 comfortably and quickly and easily converts into an additional double berth.
As with all the Nisos yachts she goes through a comprehensive maintenance program in the winter, this year holding tank and all black water pipe replacement, skin fittings and sea cock renewal as well as a full varnishing program below, and all the usual engine servicing to keep her in tip top condition!
Overall, "Oneiro" is a lovely sailing boat, perfectly suited for the very best sailing holidays in the Ionian!
