It also never hurts to talk your needs through with a Sydney Boat Broker like MW Marine. We’ve honed in on some of the most popular models so that you can see if they’re a good fit for all your needs.

The Jeanneau NC 37

You’ll enjoy reliable and secure handling when out on the water with this new addition to the Jeanneau family. The manufacturers have matched the expertly designed hull with a roomy interior layout that goes with the NC concept, allowing for maximum-level flooring.

Life on the ocean just became a whole lot more relaxed and enjoyable. Open to the outside, the NC 37 has an ideal design for living on the water. This model holds fast to the spirit of the line, designed for easy, comfortable cruising.

You have the option to adapt her L-shaped modular aft cockpit into a sundeck. This is where comfort and fun make for idyllic family time. The NC 37 boasts all the latest innovations in the series:

  • The massive sliding glass door opens completely onto the aft cockpit
  • The design of the layout means the galley is also open to the open-air
  • There’s an optional central bar that helps bring the outdoors inside

The Jeanneau Merry Fisher 1095

This is the real deal when it comes to owning a luxury family boat with a genuine 2/3 cabin, one-bathroom layout. This model has a wide range of special and standard features, such as:

  • A side access helm door and rear cockpit side door
  • Separate shower and island bed
  • A large cockpit space that’s functional even with the outboards trimmed up

The Merry Fisher 1095 is an ideal weekender for family outings with an incredible amount of onboard living space. The designers have put safety, comfort and relaxation first. A recessed side deck, sliding side door and side access gate help those on board move freely around on board.

There’s a modular cockpit and huge aft swim platforms that flow seamlessly from the cockpit. There’s a super-comfortable forward sundeck complete with adjustable seat backs. The co-pilot bench seat can create a wide space for entertaining in the cockpit zone. At night, you can transform the bench into an extra berth.

Inside, there’s plenty of bright, natural light from wide sliding glass doors, windows in the hull and the opening sunroofs. There’s lots of storage space too in the big, fully-functional galley.

Below the deck, you’ll find the saloon and the two or three cabins. There’s a spacious, comfortable owner’s cabin and a guest cabin. You can use the innovative third cabin for storage or for additional sleeping space to match your own bespoke needs.

The ample wheelhouse with a fully equipped galley offers relaxation for five when cruising. Several large sunbathers, with a spacious bench in the bow, create a luxurious location for relaxing.

Perhaps the most noticeable feature is the connection between the aft cockpit and the wheelhouse. Open the entrance door and top-hinged window quickly and efficiently to taste the outside coming inside.
