According to Jeanneau, its new 30' NC9 is "...aimed at a broad-based new customer segment” and she is the most exciting thing that has come across our bow in months. Here's why: the new world of boating is all about affordable boating. And that means buyers in the market are looking for boats with a relatively low initial cost, low operating expenses and lots of utility. Forget the days of large, glittering motoryachts with dancing girls, the boating world is now firmly in the new paradigm. Thankfully, the folks at Jeanneau got the message some time ago. Glitz is out and high-utility, good price-worthy products are in. We think Jeanneau is leading the boating industry into the future.
