Jeanneau Merry Fisher 1095 Review


Since 1957, French manufacturer Jeanneau has built luxury yachts and motorboats and owns Europe’s largest cruise ship manufacturing centre. It reached this position by obsessively recognising quality and patterns way ahead of the pack – including the provision of outboard power for medium-size launches. The flagship of a series planned especially for outboards is Merry Fisher 1095.

The BoatBoat uses intelligent builders, who fit three private cabins in the 3.37-meter beam and an enclosed lounge and a large sun lounge. There is also a recessed side deck that runs on both sides of the cabin and leads to the front desk, and the skipper is allowed fast access to the bow area if necessary through a sliding side door.


There are some nice touches on the deck lounge. For example, the backside of a dinner table is two double-sitting tables facing each other, but the front (rear) seat cantilever creates front-facing sitting. The straight side is mostly galley behind the stem bench; the steering wheel has a side door that provides direct access to the lateral deck and a feeling of proximity to the running water, and of course, loads of light and ventilation, with two glass hatches.

Jeanneau, in principle, offers a two or three-cabin configuration to this yacht. The architecture remains the same in practice. But you have a master cabin; the centre island doubles a good touch.

But your account for both a second cottage, a compact double bed under the dinette, hammers by cabin walls on both sides. The third cabin is even smaller – Jeanneau like a double berth defines it, but indeed incredibly comfortable.

Expansive side windows offer plenty of daylight and discreet incorporated lighting at night in the ceiling.

The main cabin has its entrance to the shower and bathroom, and there are additional gates to both places and keys to facilities on the central passageway. Both of these cabins are comfortable and well-equipped, even though the double bedroom is more traditional. There are also side windows in the places with good views.


What is more remarkable is that the Merry Fish 1095 lifts on the aircraft at a relatively low altitude, flies amazingly highly and does not need a thin thrust to get it there, even with the half tonne sticking out of the transom.


The fingertip controls and throttle controls, both of which helped with the bow thruster, were a delight in easing the close berth – a simple operation. The Vedados are easy to rinse, as with most modern outboards – only plug into a tube – without needing to start or tilt them.

With the Merry Fisher powerboat line 1095, Jeanneau has a worthwhile flagship. The construction efficiency is outstanding, and hanging from the rear power plants maximises interior space and is convenient to manage. In all aspects of the ship, the manufacturer has more than 60 years of experience in shipbuilding.
