The Jeanneau 379 is the mid-sized leader in the Jeanneau fleet and is still in production today as the Jeanneau 389. Only 4 changes were made during the name change, i.e. the companionway doors vs the hatch board, the lower companionway walkover, the wider swim platform, and the added bowsprit. Otherwise, this 2012 model is the same as a 2020 model at less than half the price, Other 379 models are listed $30-40K higher.
