Fast and Fun
faMilY crUiser
by John armstrong and andy adams

Jeanneau's new NC 895 is designed for cruising, and it is a
proper cabin boat with full cabin roof, glass all around and an
incomparably bright interior. With twin Yamaha 200 outboards, it's fast with a 44 mph top speed and a quick cruising
speed of 26 or 27 mph. You can really go places on a weekend
with this boat!

Opening hatches on the cabin roof slide back in two sections to bring in lots of light and ventilation on sunny days,
or you can close them down securely for inclement weather.
The aft cockpit is a main living space and it features versatile convertible seating and generous storage space too.
On the starboard side, there is a transom step through
along with a rail between you and the engines for safety and
the test boat had beautiful teak decking in this area. It's elegant and comfortable to use. A four-step swing down boarding ladder makes it easy to go swimming at the anchorage. A
particularly cool feature is that the aft bench seat is on a
