INTRODUCTION
We share a common passion for the sea: we, JEANNEAU as shipbuilders and you who want to live
your passion on the Seven Seas.
We are delighted to welcome you to the great family of JEANNEAU boat owners and we congratulate
you on it.
This manual was meant to help you to enjoy your boat comfortably and safely. It includes the boat
specifications, the equipment provided or installed, the systems and tips on her operation and
maintenance.
Read this manual carefully before you put out to sea so that you can make the most of her and avoid
any damage and any trouble. Get to know your boat before you sail.
We keep improving our boats as we want you to benefit from the technological developments, new
equipment or materials and our own experience. That is the reason why the specifications and
information given are not contractual, they may be modified without prior notice or up dates.
This owner's manual is designed in accordance with the ISO 10 240 standard requirements, it has a
general purpose and it may sometimes list some equipment or accessories or deal with some points or
questions that are not relevant to your own boat. In case of doubt refer to the inventory list you were
given when you bought your boat.
Our network of JEANNEAU authorized dealers will be at your disposal to help you get acquainted with
your boat and will be the most qualified to take care of her maintenance.
If this is your first boat or if you change to a new type of boat which you are not used to, get some
training in boat control and sailing to ensure your safety and comfort. Your dealer, your international
sailing association or your yacht club will be very happy to recommend local sailing schools or
professional instructors.
Even if everything has been provided for and designed for the safety of the boat and the safety of her
users, don't forget that sailing highly depends on the weather conditions, the sea condition, and that
only an experienced and very fit crew, handling a well-maintained boat can sail satisfactorily.
1/68
5.1.3, 5.2 ISO 10 240
The sea and wind conditions that correspond to the design categories A, B or C are changeable and are
dependent on the hazards of unusually strong waves or gusty winds. Therefore total safety cannot be
guaranteed, even if your boat meets the requirements of a category.
Always listen to the weather forecast before you put out to sea.
Make sure the sea and wind conditions will correspond to the category of your boat and you and your
crew are able to handle the boat in these conditions.
The sea and the water are not the natural environment of Man and one has to respect their laws and
strength.
Adapt the use of your boat to her condition that wears out with time and use.
Any boat, however solid she may be, may be severely damaged if badly used. This is not compatible
with a secure navigation. Always adapt the speed and direction of your boat to the conditions of the sea.
The 'COLREG', an international regulation in order to prevent collision at sea, published by the
International Maritime Organization, specifies the steering and course regulations, the navigation lights
etc. throughout the world Make sure you know these regulations and you have on board a manual that
explains them.
In numerous countries, a licence, an authorization or a training course is requested. Make sure you have
this legal authorization before you use your boat.
Always use an experienced technician for the maintenance of your boat, the fitting of accessories and
the carrying out of small modifications. The written authorization of the builder or his legal
representative is compulsory for modifications that alter the specifications of the boat, in particular the
vertical layout of the grounds (putting up of a radar, modification of the mast, change of the engine etc.).
For the essential or optional equipment (engine, electronics etc.) refer to their respective manual
delivered with your boat.
2/68
5.1.3, 5.2 ISO 10 240
The users of the boat are informed of the following:
- The entire crew must be trained properly.
- The boat shall not be loaded more with than the maximum load recommended by the builder, in
particular the total weight of the food supplies, of the different equipment that are not supplied by
the builder and of the persons on board. The weight of the boat shall be properly distributed.
- The water in the bilge shall be kept at its minimum.
- The stability is reduced when you add weight in the upper parts.
- In case of heavy weather, the hatches, lockers and doors shall be closed in order to minimize the
risk of water coming in.
- The stability may be reduced when you tow a boat.
- Breakers are serious dangers to stability.
- If your boat is equipped with a liferaft, carefully read the instructions. In the boat there shall be all
the proper safety equipment (harness, flares, liferaft etc.) depending on the type of boat, the
country, the weather
- The crew must be familiar with the use of all the safety equipment and the emergency safety
procedures (MOB, towing etc.).
- Anyone on the deck shall wear a life jacket or a buoyancy aid. Please note that in some countries
it is compulsory to wear an homologated buoyancy aid permanently.
- A part of the data is shown on the builder's plate fixed to the boat. The explanation of these data
is given in the appropriate chapters of this manual.
Keep this manual in a safe place and hand it over to the new owner if you sell your boat.
You are advised to keep all the instructions and manuals provided by the boat equipment
manufacturers (accesories...) in the same place as this manual

This boat is designed for sailing in winds that may exceed force 8 on the Beaufort scale and in waves of
a significant height of 4 and more, and the boat is to a large extent self-sufficient. Unusual conditions
such as hurricanes are excluded.
You may meet with such conditions when you sail long crossings, for instance across the oceans, or
close to the shore, when you are not protected from the wind or waves over several hundreds of nautical
miles.
CATEGORY B
This boat is designed for sailing in winds that may exceed force 8 on the Beaufort scale and in waves of
a significant height of 4m or less.
You may meet with such conditions when you sail on the open sea or close to the shore, when you are
not protected from the wind or waves over several hundreds of nautical miles. You may also meet with
these conditions on an inland sea with a size sufficient to generate the wave height in question.
CATEGORY C
This boat is designed for sailing in winds that may exceed force 6 on the Beaufort scale and in waves of
a significant height of 2m or less.
You may meet with such conditions in exposed inland waters, in estuaries and in coastal waters with
moderate weather conditions.
CATEGORY D
This boat is designed for sailing in winds not exceeding force 4 on the Beaufort scale and in waves of a
corresponding height (significant height of 0,5m or less).
You may meet such conditions in protected inland waters and in coastal waters when the weather is fine.
Note:
The significant height of a wave is the average height of the upper third of the waves, that
approximately corresponds to the height of a wave an experienced observer can assess. Some
waves will be twice as high as this value.

The deck to hull joint is obtained by gluing them together with a polyurethane filler and reinforced by
rubrail fastening.
MAINTENANCE OF THE HULL
The materials and equipments of your boat have been selected because of their high quality and
performance and ease of maintenance. However you shall carry out a minimum maintenance in order
to protect your boat from outside attacks (salt, sun, electrolysis ...).
Preferably wash your boat on shore.
Use as few cleaning agents as possible.
Don't use aggressive detergent agents or solvents (read next page).
Don't discharge your cleaning product into the water.
PRECAUTION

PRECAUTION
- Consult the harbourmaster's office to find out the conditions of use for water and air facilities
for cleaning your vessel.
- It is necessary to seek the advice of your concessionnaire with regard to gel-coat repairs.
PRECAUTION
- When applying the anti-fouling paint do not paint over the electronic instrument sensors nor
the anodes.
RECOMMENDATION
- When in dry dock check the anodes on the engine housings.
- See "Motorisation" chapter.
The lower hull of your boat should be covered with an anti-fouling paint which will prevent the
adhesion of marine growth.
The nature of the water in which the boat sails will determine the choice of the anti-fouling paint as well
as the frequency of hull stripping and painting. Do not hesitate to take advice from your specialists.
Refer to chapter 8 for launching instructions.
Before applying anti-fouling paint never:
- Do any sanding down.
- Use any other solvants than ethylic alcohol.
- Use detergents under pressure.
- Use scrapers.
- Do any sanding other than a light rubbing down by hand with a grade 400 wet abrasive paper (for
the first application).
If cleaning of the anti-fouling paint has to be done with a high pressure hose:
- The water temperature must not exceed 15 °C.
- The water pressure must not exceed 150 bars.
- The distance between the hose nozzle and the hull must not be less than 10 centimetres.
Follow the supplier's instructions very closely when applying the anti-fouling paint.
All these hull maintenance operations can be carried out by your dealer.

FUEL VALVE
50/68
7
The engine running problems may have different origins, among which dirty fuel. The injection pump
may wear out if there is water in the system.
The water results either from the condensation resulting from an insufficiently filled tank, or from a
filler cap either not closed properly or with a damaged seal.
In order to prevent any water infiltration, the fuel runs through two filters:
- One filter is an integral part of the engine, its role is to filter fuel very finely. To know when you
have to intervene and how frequently you have to change it, please refer to the engine's manual.
- The second filter is on the pipe that links the tank to the engine, it plays the role of a water decanter
and prefilter.
Change the pre-filter at least once a year.
CLOSING VALVE OF THE FUEL SYSTEM
As for the procedures in case of fire, refer to Chapter 2.
DANGER
Never obstruct the fuel valve.

LAUNCHING RECOMMENDATIONS
A lot of skill and care is required to commission your JEANNEAU boat. The proper working of all
your boat equipments in the future results from the quality of the commissioning operations.
The initial launching and the first tests of the different equipments shall be carried out by your
JEANNEAU dealer or agent so you can expect to enjoy the warranty in case of some equipment failure.
If later you have to launch your boat yourself, you should take the following precautions:
BEFORE LAUNCHING
- If your boat is to be fitted with sounder and speedometer, allow for the relevant fittings and their
installation.
- Check the engine (Refer to the engine maintenance manual).
- All the optional accessories shall be sealed with paste.
- Retract the speedometer into its housing (it may be damaged by the handling belts).
60/68

HOISTING
- When hoisting, check that no device is crushed by the belts (sounder, speedometer etc.).
- Mark the belt position with adhesive tape on the rubrail. The belt position will be useful during the
craning for a future launching.
- The crane hook will be fitted with a gantry or a spacer with two belts. The belts shall not be hooked
directly on the hook, since it would result in unusual compressive stresses on the hull.
- Hoist slowly. Control the movement of the boat with ropes.
WARNING
Do not stay on board or under the boat during hoisting.
AFTER LAUNCHING
- Check the sounder and speedometer fittings for tightness if need be..
- Before starting the engine, refer to chapter 7 "Engine".
