The National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) and Boating Writers International (BWI) honored Innovation Award Winners during the 2018 Progressive Insurance Miami International Boat Show. The Sun Odyssey 440 & Sun Odyssey 490 were amongst the winners, recognized for their Walk-Around Decks. This new innovation is part of the new generation of Sun Odyssey.
The Walk-Around Decks make moving and circulating around the boat truly unique. No longer will you have to step out of the cockpit and onto the actual deck. On this new generation of boats, circulation around the entire deck is continuous.
A view of the port side deck aboard the Sun Odyssey 440. Notice how the level of the deck behind the wheel is at the same level as the lowest point of the side deck allowing for easy access to the outer edge of the boat.
Here are some other awards the SO 440 has won this year!
