If you read these pages, even infrequently, then you’ll know I have a thing for the Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 490. OK. Maybe even more than a thing….

So if you have the required five minutes, then you too can go on a speed date with this special craft. As for me, well I am just working on my First Date with the Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 490, which is our full written review, and you’ll be able to read that here on this site, soon enough…
