Jeanneau NC 895 Sport

All-weather adventure boat.

by Ken Kreisler
One can trace Jeanneau’s heritage back to 1957 when a young Henri Jeanneau began a boatbuilding enterprise whose DNA includes innovative and visionary designs that stand out from the pack.


  • LOA: 29'3"
  • Beam: 9'9"
  • Draft: 2'
  • Weight: 7,275 lbs
  • Fuel Capacity: 158 gals.
  • Water Capacity: 26 gals.
  • Power: 2x Yamaha 200/250-hp outboard engines
  • Price: $145,800

To that end, Jeanneau presents its new NC 895 Sport, a boat combining all the excitement of outboard performance with that of a comfortable family cruiser.

With her modern styling, enclosed pilothouse with driver- side access door, slightly raked forward windshield, and ample seating both forward and aft, the NC 895 Sport is eye-catching underway and dockside. 

Boarding is made safe and easy via the starboard aft gate or from a door forward on the same side. There is also a sliding door to the pilothouse that can provide the driver with quick access to the dock while piloting solo. 

Once aboard, you are greeted with a surprisingly spacious deck and salon area for a boat this size. The cockpit, as with all the deck areas aboard, offers teak underfoot. The transom bench here is nearly full beam and is adjoined by portside seating, which has a removable table extending right to the pilothouse. With this aft seat mounted on a sliding frame, it can be easily moved forward allowing the engines to be brought up out of the water.

Walk through to the salon by way of a convenient sliding glass door and you and your guests can get quite comfortable in the portside dinette area, which converts into a sleeper. The helm is flooded with ambient light thanks to the big forward windshield, oversized windows to either side, aft sliding glass door and a pair of sunroofs overhead. For preparing a quick snack or an alfresco dinner aboard, the small but adequate galley is located just aft of the helm.

More surprises await while visiting the accommodations below. Here you will find two berths: One in the forepeak and the other situated underneath the salon. Both are well-laid-out and bright. Access to a private, spacious stand-up head is located to starboard.
With its contemporary styling, exciting performance, and attention to fit and finish, the NC 895 Sport is the kind of versatile family cruiser designed for optimum use whether out for a day or extended time away from the dock.
