Jeanneau Merry Fisher 925
The Jeanneau Merry Fisher 925, built in c 2008 was surveyed for the purpose of pre purchase and a river trial was also requested. Jeanneau produce a large range of sports cruisers for the inshore and offshore market. This Merry Fisher 925 has a pair of Yanmar 260hp inboard diesel engines on conventional drives. She benefits from having two helm positions, both of which have good visibility around the boat as you manoeuvre.
The river trial
Out on the water she handled very well, both engines pulling strong all the way up to around 3600rpm, giving her a top speed of approximately 22mph. Noise from the engines is kept to a minimum with a good layer of sound proofing within the engine space and minimal exhaust note from the transom. At low speed she also handled well, turning on a sixpence in those tight spots. This vessel also benefits from having a bow thruster.
Inside, the accommodation is well presented. An open plan saloon / galley meets you when you first enter the vessel, moving forward there is a reasonable sized WC / shower room and 2 berth accommodation to the bow. The decks are reasonably wide for a vessel of this size which does not appear to affect the accommodation size inside. Stanchions and hand rails give you that sense of security as you pass round the boat whilst she is under way. All told, this was a very well presented vessel which had been well maintained.
