The Sun Odyssey 409 is elegant and innovative. Designer Philippe Briand got it right... That balance between outstanding performance (under sail or motor) and superb crew comfort. He re-introduced a hard chine aft which achieved two things, stability and space. "Affinity" is a delight to sail. With twin wheels, the sheet winches within easy reach of the helm, all sail management lines leading aft to the cockpit and a power cabin top winch she is easily and safely handled by a couple. A bow thruster takes the drama out of docking in a breeze. The cockpit is spacious with everything laid on to make it a great space for outdoor living. Below deck is sheer luxury. Bright and light, with the warmth of the fine timber fit-out. Auxiliary power is by the quietly reliable 40 hp Yanmar giving a cruise speed of around 7 knots. 'Affinity' has been well maintained by experienced owners and is ready for you to step aboard and go cruising.
