Jeanneau has just launched its NC 795 Series 2 weekender, an all-new version of the best-selling NC 795 (more than 1,000 built so far). Among other things, the NC (for New Concept) 795 Series 2 has a new, 26′ 8″ hull, and it can be powered by a 250-hp Yamaha outboard.
The new Jeanneau is built as an all-around coastal cruiser, with a V-berth forward that can sleep two, and a convertible dinette that can sleep two more. The protected helm deck is filled with natural light with windows all around and a sliding glass door aft that leads to the cockpit.
You can climb on the boat through a boarding gate on the starboard side, or from the swim platforms that flank the outboard engine. The cockpit has an L-shaped settee aft; you can store two coolers under the seats there. A table on a stainless steel pedestal faces the aft seating area. And you can raise the outboard out of the water without losing any seating space in the cockpit.
High side rails make it easy and safe to walk to the foredeck, where you can relax on a large sun pad. Up top, there’s an optional rack for your SUP or kayak on the cabin hardtop. Another option, for the interior, is a 12V air-conditioning system that works off lithium-ion batteries or shore power.
Inside, the dinette table has face-to-face seating; the co-captain’s bench seat on the port side can be arranged to face aft for the dinette. The helm is on the starboard side, forward of the galley.
Just forward of the helm is an enclosed head and shower and the V-berth for two. The boat has a dynamic fresh air system that includes two air vents over the windshield.
Standard power is a 200-hp Yamaha; the 250-hp engine is an upgrade. Starting price is $75,930.
