Thanks to a generous beam carried well aft, interior volume of the Jeanneau 39i is greater than one would expect on a 39-footer. The boat’s a breeze to operate under sail or power: The helm is light, and the boat responds obediently to a flick of the fingers on the wheel.
Halyards, reefing and furling lines, and the mainsheet are led aft to winches on either side of the companionway; primary winches are on the coamings just forward of the twin wheels. The big, triangular cockpit is comfortable for lounging, and a centerline table has plenty of room for six to dine alfresco. A hot and cold water transom shower is handy to the broad swim platform.
The roomy forward cabin has a large V-berth and ample storage space in hanging lockers and on shelves. The saloon is large, airy, and comfortable. A wraparound dinette to starboard, just forward of an L-shaped galley, has seating for five or six.
A settee berth is opposite, just forward of the nav station.
