Merry Fisher 795 Series 2 Sport
The Merry Fisher Series 2 695 & 795 collection by Jeanneau is available in two variations, built upon the same hull – the popular Weekender and the new Sport. The models offer an easily accessible way to escape from everyday life onto the water come rain or shine, a never-ending season. Whether you enjoy a sedate meander along an inland waterway or the thrill of high-speed runs at sea, the Merry Fisher range offer this diverse versatility enhancing your enjoyment on the water. With outstanding sea keeping qualities, these exciting boats provide reassurance of safety and reliability as well as fun for all aboard.
The Merry Fisher’s wide hull to length ratio and deep bow provides a stable hull which will manoeuvre with ease at low speeds (useful for mooring) and climb onto the plane effortlessly, paired with the range of high-performance outboard engines.
The two variations of super structure offer enclosed wheelhouses, the chic Weekender; more spacious and ideal for up to four persons aboard; the Sport offers increased, deeper deck areas with high safety rails, whilst still providing ample accommodation. Both designs boast wheelhouses with 360-
degree visibility, excellent light into the space and great ventilation on those warmer days. In all weathers the Merry Fisher is premium class for comfort; an excellent helm position, internal living area and an additional exterior social area to the stern seating in comfort well up to six persons around a table; at a moment’s notice a lounging sun pad can be created. Here at Burton Waters Boat Sales we have a Merry Fisher 795 Sport Series 2 available for viewing. This small yet mighty vessel has to be seen to be believed and once aboard its sublime qualities will speak for themselves.
Currently the vessel is on hard standing, so looking around the hull we have a bow thruster and studying the underside, the V shaped hull flats out towards the stern assisting lift and coupled with the chines the vessel sits nicely on the plane all attributes to reduce bow wave and a cleaner cut through the water. These subtle improvements of the redesigned hull and the stunning new graphics unique to the Sport, will have fellow boaters certainly taking a second glance. Various power options are available from 150HP up to the V6 250HP and at Burton Waters we supply Yamaha engines, this boat having the powerful 200 HP. All engines run whisper quietly, have electric power tilt and trim which assists the boats tremendous performance abilities. Stepping aboard, the eye is drawn to the teak faced bathing platforms split around the outboard well. The extending platform to starboard has a stainless steel railing to assist boarding from the land and water via the retraceable folding four-step rebounding ladder.
Entry into the boat from the stern is via two doors on both port and starboard sides or if alongside on the starboard side, a lockable door. The spacious rear area is so versatile on the Sport version and in this model Jeanneau have embellished on the fisher element of the vessel. The Weekender has seating which is integral to the boat with stowage within but the Sport has folding benches around the three sides of the outside area so it can be converted quickly into free space for the days of fishing but then on return to port can be washed down, benches lifted and cushions replaced for a relaxed evening. If shade or shelter is required a bimini cover can be drawn out from above the pilot house access doors and there is plenty of storage in the lazaretto for extra ropes, fenders and the diesel blown air heater is located on the forward bulk head.
The wheel house or as in this instance the Pilot House is of a square design which offers plenty of space inside with no compromise of tapered sides. The sliding rear doors welcome you into the space and to the left is a small sink with running water; an adjustable circular table above which can be drawn down and to the right a seat with fridge under. The cushion can be removed and a small portable gas burner be sat here for occasional culinary preparation or simply boiling of a kettle. There is a plentiful amount of stowage around the internal area in cupboards and under floor.
There are two comfortable seats both with the ability to be adjusted from a sitting position to a support when standing is preferred. To port is the navigator’s seat and to starboard the modern helm in piano black finish and seat. The helm consists of wheel, Yamaha electronic throttle unit and bow thruster control. The instrumentation includes the Yamaha engine systems, Garmin chart plotter and all switches for the boat’s systems all easily accessible and to use.
The dramatic reverse sloped windscreen provides excellent visibility along with the two large side doors which slide togive great access to the deep side decks; very useful for when coming alongside or casting off and these facilitate good ventilation along with the panoramic-esque
sun roof. Stepping down below from the main area to starboard is the
heads compartment with sink, running water and sea style toilet with holding tank and overboard discharge. In this area below is the sleeping accommodation with room for two. The vessel is remarkable for the size and again has to be seen to be believed, she is without doubt magnifique
Heading out on to the decks, which wrap around the pilot house, there is a clear difference between the Sport and her sister; the decks are set deeper into the hull with the safety rails coming to waist height providing exceptional safety for when moving around out on deck. Up at the bow on the fore deck, Jeanneau have provided a seating area, for two (this can be lifted to access the cabin) and fixed table, the perfect place for breakfast or evening drinks whilst watching a setting sun. To more practical elements on the prow a Dane forth anchor is fitted with electric winch and a plentiful amount of chain and rope, (the rope making for a more comfortable anchoring). From this position looking down the boat to the stern a good view over the pilot house is offered. This particular boat has roof rails to carry a paddle board or canoe and aft a plethora of fishing rod holders above the rear cabin door .
To summarise, this excellent Merry Fisher 795 Sport Serie2 model is of dazzling proportions for both its sea keeping qualities and accommodation requirements. Its melange of qualities make it perfect for inland as well as coastal hoping, fishing trips and social time, all facilities for a comfortable time aboard. The hull is designed to give good handling at low speeds with the added bonus of a bow thruster and tremendous lift when throttling up onto the plain. A perfect all-rounder and multi talented vessel from Jeannueau.
