Introduction

The side deck slopes down towards the helm station each side so that there is no more clambering over thwarts and coamings to get to the side deck – you simply walk around the helm. The aft cabins are not compromised, as the 490 carries her beam well aft. The other evolutionary design is that the cockpit coamings are hinged, and fold down to make flat lounging day beds whenever you want.

The Sun Odyssey 490 also shares the same stroke of brilliance as the 410 below – all drawers and cabinets open parallel to the centreline, so nothing flies out when opened underway. With 4 double cabins and a skipper’s cabin, all with en-suite heads and showers, this is a fabulous boat for larger groups who want to go sailing in the beautiful BVI.

The 490 has a hard chine which increases stability underway and adds internal volume. Combined with her powerful hull, twin helms and rudders, roller furling mainsail and Genoa, the 490 is easily sailed short-handed. Centralised winches, all control lines led aft, a full array of electronics, make sailing short-handed or fully crewed, fun, simple and stress-free.

This Sun Odyssey 490 has been upgraded to include a roller furling mainsail, a 3 burner stove, generator and air conditioning, ambient lighting, folding coamings, a full coverage bimini with dodger, the list goes on… she even has electric winches for the Genoa and an electric winch that will run the main outhaul and mainsheet.

The Sun Odyssey 490 won ‘best-imported boat of the year’ in Cruising World Magazine in 2019. Charter her this season to find out why.
