Jeanneau introduced a new 54-foot sailing yacht that features a 16-foot beam and configurations that include between two and six berths.

The Jeanneau 54 was designed in close collaboration with Philippe Briand, whose chined hull and deck profile seek to provide seaworthy handling, and Andrew Winch, who seeks to approach design with attention to ergonomic details and high-end materials.

Jeanneau said a sun bed is integrated into the foredeck with a retractable bimini, and a safety-first design includes a life raft that can be deployed from the back of the table without the need to lift it or open the transom.

All winches are set together at the aft end of the cockpit.
