Re: Jeanneau Attalia

I am currently looking for a boat for a liveaboard/ cruiser, and my pops sent me a link to a Jeanneau Attalia 32. So far I have fell in love with the design of both the Hull and the Interior and looks like a great boat to take around the Caribbean, and possibly visit family in California (once I am experienced enough though). My only concern is the headroom of the Attalia since I am just a hair under 6'1". How is the headroom on the Attalia, and the Sunrise?

This is a great thread, I always make sure I read it when it is in the unread to see how you are doing. But this has been active since 2006! wow must be a record.

Waymar83 Last race of the season a close, very close second. I will not quibble. We are now the boat to beat on the Island! Although I'm sure our handicap will probably change next year. Now to do some casuals sailing, some maintenance and a few upgrades. Quick question, what kind of roller furling do each of you have? My UltraFurl ( made in Canada ) has been very, very good but I need to change several extrusions.

Hi gang!

I'm as proud as a peacock these days... We raced last week and got our very first, FIRST. Against boats we have been racing for over two years! We used to always finish last by a wide margin. Now we have a new headsail, a clean bottom, more experienced crew and I also brought onboard a tactician who also knows sail trim. We are beside ourselves! Last race of the season this Sunday ! It's nice to be competitive...

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

During the last week me and a friend have sailed a race called Seapilot2star in the Baltic Sea. It was a very good opportunity to test our new rigg - I'm satisfied! Our dear Virgo now sails higher against the wind then before and she is sailing faster in lighter winds. We took the first reef when it was blowing around 10 m/s. We have been waiting for our new sails and we got the fore sail two weeks ago but we are still waiting for the main sail. We got a temporary main sail so we could participate in the race. That sail was a little smaller compared to our new main sail.
Because of the delay of the delivery we hadn't test nor train so it was a little bit of trial and error during the race. We didn't won the race but we weren't the last boat neither and we laughed a lot which was the most important this time :-)

Re: Jeanneau Attalia


An arcadia is a bit smaller in length. But similar otherwise. It is a Tony Castro design vs Fauroux? sp? for the attalia.

I'm in the water year around here in the salish sea. So no spring commissioning per say as you had to do in Canada. Only what I do when needed. I do need to repair replace rigging at some point in time, along with strip bottom of paint, or cover with a non copper in the next few years due to new state laws about no copper in bottom paints by 2020 or there about.

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

Thanks for the information Waymar and Virgo,

Unfortunately the sale fell through as the owner went ahead and sold it to someone else during his dealings with me. Let's just say we had a few words.Bummer as I liked the boat and had good plans for it. However, I do have a chance of obtaining an Arcadia which as far as I can tell is almost identical to the Attalia. I will be sailing it in Puerto Rico. Will update if the sale does close.

Good Winds!
