Jeanneau Merry Fisher 1295 Fly - the largest Merry Fisher, a 40-foot outboard yacht!

With the Jeanneau Merry Fisher 1295 Fly, the French shipyard Jeanneau, a brand of the Bénéteau Group, the world's number two in yachting, is inaugurating a new market segment, that of 40-foot outboard habitable yachts!

Is it possible to have all the features of a real yacht, namely 3 beautiful cabins, a large flybridge, a foredeck saloon, an ocean terrace and a saloon worthy of a large unit, all with outboard motorization, on a 40-foot boat?

Until now, the answer to this question was inevitably negative. With the Jeanneau Merry Fisher 1295 Fly, this is no longer the case!

Jeanneau has gone outside the box by imagining a real yacht, but on a limited size, and powered by 3 Yamaha outboard engines, please!

From the side, the Jeanneau Merry Fisher 1295 Fly is clearly inspired by the design of much larger yachts (Prestige and Princess, to name a few) and is distinguished by a timeless style - signed Jeanneau Design / Centkowski & Denert Design - combining power and elegance. The presence of 3 outboard engines on the transom is surprising, reinforcing the image of innovation of the French shipyard.

From the classic inboard yachts, the Jeanneau Merry Fisher 1295 Fly takes on exterior features, such as the retractable bulwark, allowing for a terrace on the sea, the coupé door, allowing for boarding in the greatest comfort, the forward deck saloon, and the vast flybridge.

The cockpit, protected from the sun by a flybridge, has an L-shaped bench seat that can accommodate no less than 8 guests!

Inside, Jeanneau has gone to great lengths to create a layout for the saloon that has never been seen before on an outboard motorboat, with the L-shaped galley on the port side aft and the saloon positioned just in front, facing the cockpit.

This type of layout is clearly taken from the motoryachts, Prestige in particular, which is very popular with customers.

The night section of the Jeanneau Merry Fisher 1295 Fly has 3 cabins, including two central double cabins, and a forward owner's suite, with a 3-cabin, 2 bathroom layout. The first visuals from the shipyard suggest a high level of finishing, and a thorough research on materials, wood and veneers.

Powered by a 3 x 300 HP Yamaha outboard, the hull of the Jeanneau Merry Fisher 1295 Fly has been specifically developed to allow safe sailing at all speeds.

The boat would glide relatively early - like the Jeanneau Merry Fisher 1095 Fly - even in the intermediate speeds, to ensure a controlled consumption and a maximum of comfort.
