‘Serendip’ our new Jeanneau 419 for charter was launched last week in Perpignan France. Kevin was able to join the delivery crew just before they left for Perfect Sailing’s base in Orhaniye.
Weather conditions for departure are quite strong (which is common here) but will settle down the further south they travel. The crew will have their work cut out the first few days with the forecast showing up to 50 knots of wind. Hopefully they will get far enough south before the strong weather arrives as they sail towards Cagliari in the south west of Sardinia. This picture was taken just outside Perpignan harbour the day before departure, you can see it is building already.
‘Serendip’ is 41′ and very similar to the popular Jeanneau 379 ‘Salsa’ part of last year’s fleet, just bigger overall with an extra head. The new 419 model also now sports a full width drop down transom, very popular with our clients.
Specification, like all our yachts is extensive including classic slab reef mainsail for better sailing performance and bow thruster. Her chart plotter, autopilot and instrument electronics are the latest B&G, by far the best kit available today. The chartplotter even calculates your tacking points to windward, if only it made tea too!
Her first charter is a week or so after her arrival in Turkey, so it’ll be all hands on deck (excuse the pun). We have a few introductory discount weeks available, call us today.
