Milestone: Jeanneau NC 895 Hull 200

Jeanneau NC 895 Hull 200

A big congratulations to our team in Cadillac for all their handwork and commitment to the building of the Jeanneau NC 895!

Mention the name Jeanneau and sleek-looking sailboats immediately come to mind but the Jeanneau shipyard first started building small outboard powerboats in 1957 and never stopped.

Before 2015, only a handful of Jeanneau Powerboats found their way to North America waterways. After a year of testing the waters, Jeanneau America began importing Jeanneau Outboard lines; the Leader Range and the NC Weekender Range.

“The NC 895 was an immediate show-stopper,” says Wade Clevenger, Regional Sales Manager. “So much so that it quickly became evident that we needed to start producing the boat here in North America as soon as possible to meet demand,” adds Wade.

So in the fall of 2017, Jeanneau began production of the NC 895 at the company’s production facility in Cadillac, Michigan alongside other company-owned brands: Four Winns, Glastron, Wellcraft, and Scarab.

“It was an adventure! It was different than any boats we’ve ever built here in Cadillac, ” says Rick Videan, VP Operations & Manufacturing. “They are unique, with a new design and new style. A true all-seasons boat,” he continues.

Today, we are proud to celebrate the continued success of the 895 with the production of hull #200. “This is such an amazing milestone for Jeanneau powerboats in North America,” says Sam Dubois, newly appointed President of Jeanneau America. “After only five short years in North America, Jeanneau Powerboats are really on the map, it’s very exciting” Sam adds.

This is a 29-foot 11-inch luxury day boat with a 9- foot 2-inch beam and it features a fabulous expansive flat floor all the way from the bow rider area to the transom and the swim platform.
