The new Jeanneau NC 1095, the 34-foot flagship of the French builder’s outboard fleet, is a versatile boat. With three possible cabins, a head with a separate shower, and one-level living from transom to helm station, it’s a comfortable family weekend (or longer) cruiser. But you also can use it for casual fishing, waterskiing, picnics on the beach (just tilt up the outboards), or just about anything else you’d like to do on the water.
And it performs. Powered by twin 300-hp Yamahas, the new Jeanneau tops out at 47 mph. It also has some nice touches to make cruising safe and easy. A sliding door next to the helm leads to the starboard side deck, for example, so the captain can help with docking or maneuvering in a lock. And the side decks are recessed, so people can move around the boat safely.
The salon is filled with natural light from large windows all around, and a sliding glass door aft that leads to the cockpit. Two overhead sunroofs also let in light and fresh air. Visibility from the helm is very good in all directions.
The aft bench seat in the cockpit slides forward when you want to tilt up the outboards. The cockpit is one major social area; the foredeck is another, with sun lounges featuring lifting back rests.
The galley is up on the starboard side of the salon, and it’s equipped for cruising with a cooktop, microwave, fridge and upper and lower storage cabinets. A dinette is to port; the back of the front seat there flips forward or aft, so the passenger can sit facing forward or facing the dinette.
Below, the NC 1095 comes with either two or three cabins and one head. The owner’s cabin is forward with a large centerline bed, two overhead hatches and long windows down each side. The guest cabin is aft a bit on the port side with a berth for two. The third cabin, also with a two-person bed, can be to starboard; otherwise that are is used for extra storage.
Base price is $216,550.
