The Merry Fisher range of fast fishers from Jeanneau has gained a cult following over the years and has become something of a speciality of the French builders. The New Merry Fisher range has taken the offering from basic utilitarian day boats to becoming attractive small weekend and coastal cruisers available in differing degrees of trim level. Aimed at the weekend user the Merry Fisher 895 is the full package, spacious practical accommodation below decks, a sea kindly hull and efficient modern petrol outboard engine.
EUREKA V is a very well-appointed Legend version of the class coming with the distinctive blue hull and black style stripes offset against the white deck and superstructure mouldings. Fully loaded she benefits from an inventory including the upgraded Comfort and Premier packs alongside a number of further upgrades; highlights including:
Sliding Cockpit Seat L-shaped.

Saloon seating
Converts to occasional double berth.
Bow Thruster
Raymarine Axiom navigation system.
Electric Anchor Windlass
Webasto Heating
Hot Water
Trim Tabs
LED Lighting
240V Shore Power with additional 13 amp sockets
Full Cockpit Tent Enclosure.

Very lightly used by the owner during this season she has only been slept on twice with the engine having recorded just 40 hours of running. She represents a real opportunity to acquire a fully loaded example of this current model boat at a considerable discount against buying new.
Lying afloat and in commission on her berth in Argyll we recommend early viewing to avoid disappointment.

Designed for cruising, the new Merry Fisher 895 is a true weekender. She offers an incomparably bright interior, with wide windows in the helm station and even more comfort for those special shared moments on board.

The cockpit features an L-shaped saloon, reclining seatbacks and armrests with cup holders. Both on the interior and on the exterior, the seatbacks pivot to adjust the seating to suit individual preferences.
This all-new Merry Fisher features an opening side gate, a recessed sidedeck, as well as a very generous storage capacity. The main cabin, with wide windows, is equipped with a head with shower and marine WC.
With her clever details, the Merry Fisher 895 makes unforgettable cruises possible, perfect for sharing unique moments together as a family.

Extracts from the 2017 review by Powerboat and RIB magazine.
'Every country has its forte when it comes to boatbuilding, and with France it is fast fishing boats. The Jeanneau Merry Fisher 895 epitomises this concept well, offering this yard’s usual blend of practicality, robustness and performance. To be totally fair, this boat is not truly new. It is an incarnation of the previous MF 855 – which is no bad thing, as in creating the MF895, Jeanneau have taken a proven concept and made it that little bit better.

The hull has been stretched a tad, making the MF895 a 9m boat with a bit more lift at the stern as a result. It also has slightly bigger bathing platforms, making stern access around the engine/engines easier. All power options are Yamaha in the form of 1 x Yamaha F350, 1 x F300 or 2 x F175s. The test boat was fitted with a single F300, which represents a departure from the 855, as it was only offered with twin 175hp or 150hp engines in the past. The single-engine concept is a logical one for normal pleasure use as it produces better performance and economy.'
'The MF895 dry with a Yamaha F300 displaces just over 3300kg. Factor in the nearly full fuel tank and the two crew, and the test boat of the day was weighing in at 3.8 tonnes. The F300 proved well matched to this displacement as the boat pushed up onto the plane fairly quickly, and without any need for trim tabs. Without the Lenco trim tabs off, she will plane at 18 knots at 4000rpm, though the tabs will keep her on the plane a few knots below this speed.'
'Practicality is the key theme throughout the design of the boat, which is evident the moment you step into the cockpit. The wheelhouse is offset to port, enabling a wider 9″ starboard side deck enclosed by a 15″-deep bulwark complete with side gate – and you still get a 6″ side deck on the port side. The aft bench seat assembly can slide forward on rails, enabling the engine to be trimmed clear of the water when berthed. The large cockpit hatch reveals an even larger lazarette beneath that has its own internal storage lockers. Forward deck access underway, as I found out, is all the safer thanks to tall guard rails and effective non-slip decking everywhere, and the anchor locker is deep enough to cater for fenders and warps, as well as housing a good-sized Lewmar windlass. I was a bit disappointed, however, with the size of the cleats, which, all things considered, was out of keeping.
The wheelhouse saloon certainly benefits from the abundance of window space and a starboard side door, enabling you to step out and quickly get to grips with fender duties and mooring lines. The galley is the usual compact set-up with a two-ring gas hob, reasonable storage and a fridge behind the helm seat. Opposite sits the dinette, which converts to a small double berth if need be, and the forward bench seat has a tilting backrest that quickly turns it into a double navigator’s seat. Sadly, in order to get more light into the mid cabin below, the option of fitting an internal skylight took priority over placing a chart table in front of the navigator.
Below decks the design has given nothing away. The heads, complete with shower, has enough headroom to accommodate anyone up to 6ft 3in tall and it certainly has enough space for the most well-fed. The mid cabin is par for the course, with a medium-size hanging locker, full standing headroom in the doorway and a wide double berth. In the master’s forepeak cabin, Jeanneau have embellished the large double island bed with a large storage locker underneath, and a slim hanging locker. There is plenty of sleeping space, but limited room around the foot of the bed.
The MF895 is really an already proven concept, being very closely based on the 855. However, it does take the concept further insomuch as design improvements have made the boat even more versatile, while recognising the need for more power in a boat with good offshore capability. This boat has proven popular in the Offshore version fitted with twin 200hp Yamaha F200s, as the extra security afforded by two engines will always appeal. However, Jeanneau are wise to offer this boat with Yamaha’s F350 (unlike the 855), as not only will this save 100kg over a pair of F200s, but it will be around 20% cheaper to run, and faster in the process. The F300 is clearly enough to power this boat, but the F350 will make for a more enjoyable drive, while making the MF895 more responsive when having to deal with rough weather.'
