Pinnacle's Jeanneau 439

The special design of Pinnacle's 439 combines elements of a contemporary race boat with the features of an elegant cruising yacht, to create a vessel of great speed and comfort. We are pleased to offer several of these performance-oriented yachts in our Chicago location.

Yacht Year/Feature Base Price/Availability
Eclipse 2015 w/ Full Main, Elect Halyard Winch, Deep Keel, Thruster, AC Chicago Details
Fearless 2015 w/ Full Main, Elect Halyard Winch, Deep Keel, Thruster, AC Chicago Details

With an overall length of 43'9", a 13'10" beam, and a full keel of 7'2", the 439 is fast boat. For maximum performance, the yacht passes on the use of a roller furling mainsail as it limits the size and control of the sail. Rather, Pinnacle's 439 is equipped with a full mainsail that is hoisted up the mast from its boom-top storage bag via a Harken electric winch.

The 439's high aspect rig provides a tall sail plan that allows the boat to carry a narrower, taller headsail which is much more efficient. The roller-furling headsail is a 106% jib allowing the yacht to generate a great deal of power without the difficulty of managing a large 130% overlapping genoa.

The hull design of the 439 borrows features that were first introduced on Volvo 70 around-the-world race boats. A hard chine starts mid-ship and is carried to the transom. This chine allows the yacht to be sailed fast at a minimal heal angle. The chine also contributes internal volume toward the stern making the aft cabin spacious.

Pinnacle's 439 incorporates high quality B&G instrumentation. The preferred choice for race boats, state-of-the-art wind, speed and depth gauges are integrated to the Zeus color cartographic touch-screen plotter and master control unit mounted at the helm. The yacht is also equipped with a B&G autopilot.

An electric bow thruster provides exceptional handling around the docks. The yacht also moves swiftly under power with a 54 HP Yanmar Diesel and modern Sail Drive transmission. Drag is reduced substantially by her folding race prop.

Twin helms with black composite wheels allow high-side visibility and make the cockpit open and comfortable. Cockpit seats are finished in glowing teak. The yacht has much flat area forward for relaxing and moving about. A sizable folding swim platform allows crew easy access to the water.

The Jeanneau 439 is stunning below deck. She is sleek, spacious and intelligently laid-out, with finely finished teak used throughout. The yacht is equipped with air conditioning and heat for relaxing.

The forward v-berth cabin and stateroom aft each have their own head and are appointed with abundant cabinetry and opening hatches. The main salon table provides seating for six. Additional seating is provided by a spacious settee on the port side. A NAV station desk also lays to port. The galley provides a four-burner stainless steel stove with oven, refrigerator and a double sink with hot and cold pressure water. The galley is stocked with quality wine glasses, plates, silverware, cookware and utensils.

All Pinnacle vessels are equipped with safety gear that exceeds Coast Guard requirements. Twelve life jackets, two fire extinguishers, a throwable life preserver, swim rope, flair kit, first aid kit, flash light, high-intensity spot light, tool kit, two sets of foul weather gear, and two harnesses and tethers are provided for the safety of you and your passengers.

"Thanks for a wonderful season. It's rare to find such a class act in business. Thanks to great maintenance, planning, instruction and support, we and all our guests had a safe, enjoyable and memorable season. From one crew of six who were all age 75 years plus -- to the numerous children who experienced their first sail -- everything was flawless."
