Jeanneau NC 1095 profile

The Jeanneau NC 1095 combines the versatility of Jeanneau’s NC lineup and adds outboard propulsion, expanding the amount of usable space onboard.

Jeanneau NC 1095 running

The Jeanneau NC 1095 comes with standard dual 300-horsepower outboards.


The Jeanneau NC 1095 is designed with many of the capabilities and features of larger cruisers. She can handle a large family and can have three beds below, and the dinette makes into another sleeping location. Al fresco spaces fore and aft are provided for entertaining and socializing. The size, features, and propulsion system make it nimble with relatively low operating costs. She is intended for boaters who are looking for an “affordable” cruiser.

Jeanneau NC 1095 running

The layout of the Jeanneau NC 1095 creates three social spaces for entertaining: the cockpit, the forward sun pad, and the inside space with dinette and galley.

Major Features

  • Asymmetrical Deck Plan. The port side deck is narrow to allow the main cabin to be an extra few inches wider. The starboard side deck is intended to be the main route for mooring work and egress.
  • Cockpit Seating. The cockpit on the NC 1095 has L-shaped bench seating which can convert into a large sun pad. The forward-facing bench section slides forward to accommodate the engines when they are tilted up.
  • Outboard Propulsion. The dual 300-horsepower outboards free up space below deck for storage, equipment, and tanks, while efficiently powering the NC 1095.
  • Side Cockpit Access Door. The NC 1095 has a 17” (.43 m) opening starboard side access door that leads to the cockpit.
  • Sliding Helm Door. There is a sliding door next to the helm that allows quick access to the starboard side deck, making docking and anchoring shorthanded easier.
  • Convertible Forward Sun Pad. The NC 1095 has a large sun pad located on the forward deck. The port and starboard pads can be positioned as loungers by lifting the backrest into position.
  • Separate Shower Stall. The head has a separate walk in shower, which is unusual for a boat in this class.

Performance Test

Jeanneau NC 1095 running

The Jeanneau NC 1095 is designed to have very little bow rise when accelerating that affords clear forward visibility for the operator.

The Jeanneau NC 1095 has a length overall of 34’5” (10.49 m), a beam of 10’11” (3.33 m), and a draft of 2’3” (.69 m). With an empty weight of 10,225 lbs. (4,638 kg), half the fuel capacity and three people onboard, there was an estimated weight of 12,590 lbs. (5,711 kg).

Top Speed. With the twin 300-hp Yamaha 4-strokes turning 15T 15 ¾ Saltwater Series II propellers, we reached our top speed of 40.2 mph at 6000 rpm.

Best Cruise. The best cruise was measured at 4000 rpm and 26.1 mph. It was at that speed that the 22.4 gph fuel burn translated into 1.2 mpg and a range of 222 statute miles, all while still holding back a 10-percent reserve of the boats 212-gallon (803 L) total fuel capacity.

Acceleration Times and Conditions

Jeanneau NC 1095 acceleration times


Jeanneau NC 1095 running

When accelerating, there is a bit of torque steering that lessens as the NC 1095 gets up to speed.

The NC 1095 is equipped with trim tabs but they don’t seem to be needed. The boat seems to run flat; however, we only had three people aboard. With a whole family and uneven weight distribution, tabs could be welcome.

The NC 1095 comes up from a level attitude, maintains the attitude, and settles the same way. When turning, she bleeds off speed. When turning, accelerate and bring the outboard trim back down to prevent cavitating the props. Calm conditions on test day prevented testing how the NC 1095 handles chop. However, transitions across the wakes kept the ride dry and uneventful.

Boat Inspection

Jeanneau NC 1095 platform

The Jeanneau NC 1095 port and starboard boarding platforms. Note the re-boarding ladder on the starboard side.


The port and starboard boarding platforms flank the twin 300-horsepower outboards. Boarding from the starboard side, there is a walkthrough with a safety gate. Boarding from the port side, there is a gate in the bench seating backrest, which must be lifted out.

The starboard side boarding platform has a re-boarding ladder below which is accessible from the water and a grab rail to help with getting out of the water. There is storage below the hatch on the port side boarding platform.

The shore power connections are mounted on the port side of the transom. The forward-facing center section of the bench seating slides forward to accommodate the outboards when they are tilted up.

Jeanneau NC 1095 port platform

The NC 1095 port side boarding platform has storage under the hatch. The shore power connector is mounted on the port side of the transom.


Boarding the cockpit from the starboard side, there is a 17” (.43 m) side door, and the bulwarks are recessed to accommodate inward opening of it. The latch must be retracted when opening to clear the cabin bulwark. The L-shaped bench seating surrounds a solid wood pedestal table. There are two receptors for the pedestal mounted in the deck. When the forward-facing bench seating is all the way back (and the engines are down), the aft most receptacle is the preferred position. When the bench seating is slid forward to accommodate the outboards being tilted up, the forward most receptacle is best. This allows for entertaining or socializing in either position.

There is a lightweight frame and an insert cushion that forms a large sun pad.

Jeanneau NC 1095 hull side door

Shown is the 17” (.43 m) wide hull side door that opens into the side deck adjacent to the cockpit. Jeanneau has maximized interior spaces so deck space can be tight.

Jeanneau NC 1095 bench seat

With the engines lowered and the bench slid back, family and friends can gather around the pedestal table. The pedestal is in the aft most receptacle. Note that at the port end of the seat back, the back rest can be taken out for egress.

Below Deck Storage. The forward most bench seat – the one that abuts the glass bulkhead – is removable. With it moved the latches for the deck hatch, to the below decks compartment, can be accessed. Instead of moving the seat every time, Jeanneau provides a removable plug in the base so we can still open the hatch with the seat in place and there are gas assist support struts.

Inside the compartment is cavernous storage, plus there are accommodations for battery access.

Jeanneau NC 1095 bench table

With the engines raised and the bench is slid forward, the seating is a little tighter but still can be used.

Jeanneau NC 1095 bimini

Overhead is an extended hardtop with speakers and a touch activated dual brightness light that prevents having a dark entry. A Bimini can be attached to the overhead to further protect the aft deck. A cruising canvas could be added in the aftermarket, effectively providing another cabin for three-season operation.

Side Decks

The Jeanneau NC 1095 has an asymmetrical layout with a wider side deck to starboard. The port side step is accessed from the seats. Inside the step to the starboard side, there is a compartment that can be used for line storage. If the optional propane stove is selected, then the area becomes the tank storage. There are channels to direct water overboard.

Jeanneau NC 1095 side deck

Shown is the starboard side deck which is recessed to allow the operator to step out of the sliding helm door. Not shown are the two steps that measure 8” and 9” (20.3 cm and 22.8 cm), respectively, going forward.

Starboard Side Deck. The walk space includes an 18” (45.7 cm) raised bulwark to just past the side door. The safety rails are mounted on the outboard side of the bulwark and top-out at 36” (91 cm). There is 20” (51 cm) from the rail to the cabin side. Decking is molded non-skid.

Forward of the side door, there are two steps forward and the increase in height brings the continuing level rail height to 21” (53.3 cm). Continuing forward there is a 2” (5.08 cm) toe rail for safety.

Jeanneau NC 1095 step

Below the port side step up to the side deck is a compartment that can become propane tank storage, or line storage.

Jeanneau NC 1095 side decks

To port, the side decks are narrower than the starboard side. However, they are relatively easy to negotiate because the safety rails are affixed to the hullside instead of to the toe rail, which is so narrowed as to be problematical.

Jeanneau NC 1095 safety rails

Along with the outboard safety rails, there is an additional handrail along the hardtop on both sides of the Jeanneau NC 1095 that add to safely transiting along the side decks.


On top of the trunk cabin are two sun pads measuring 5’9” (1.75 m) in length that combine at the lower half. Both can easily be converted into chaise lounge position by elevating the seatbacks and setting the flip supports.

On the foredeck of our test boat is a windlass and a stainless steel bow roller for the anchor and all-chain rode.

Jeanneau NC 1095 sun pad

The forward sun pad converts into dual chaise lounges. Note the 16” (.42 m) opening in the 24” (.61 m) high bow rail and the 10” (.25 m) cleat mounted on the caprail.

Jeanneau NC 1095 filler pads

The filler pads are neatly stored under a lift-and-latch equipped hatch cover at the front of the trunk cabin.

Jeanneau NC 1095 windlass

The Lewmar windlass is recessed into the foredeck. A galvanized anchor rests in the stainless steel anchor roller. A hatch over the rode locker opens on a lift-and-lock latch. Under the hatch is a mount for the windlass remote and another control is at the helm.

Main Deck Interior

Jeanneau combined the galley dinette and helm in the main deck interior space. With the large windows, doors, and glass aft bulkhead, there is visibility all around.

Jeanneau NC 1095 main deck

Entering the main deck interior space, there is a sliding door that when fully opened, provides a 43” (1.09 m) wide egress.


To the port, the dinette is on a platform 9” (22.86 cm) off the deck, providing good sightlines from the seats and added headroom over the berth belowdecks. The table is expandable and on a high low pedestal for conversion to a berth. Curtains can be pulled across the windows for privacy. Drink holders are integrated into the table top. Storage, including bottle storage, is in a pull-out drawer under the seat.

The forward seat in the dinette converts to a forward-facing companion seat for additional eyes looking forward when underway. Drink holders are integrated into the carbon fiber upholstered dash just ahead and a grab handle is below. Manually opening side windows, along with two reversed overhead skylights add to the ventilation. These include bug screens and blackout shades.

Jeanneau NC 1095 dinette

On the Jeanneau NC 1095, the dinette is mounted on a raised platform to provide better views. Note the large sliding side window that adds ventilation to the space.

Jeanneau NC 1095 storage drawer

There is a storage drawer under the aft-most bench seat with dedicated bottle storage.

Jeanneau NC 1095 air conditioning

The air conditioning controller is mounted on the port bulwark. Air conditioning is an option on the Jeanneau NC 1095.

Jeanneau NC 1095 seating

The forward-most bench converts to a forward-facing companion seat when underway. Note the acrylic skylight mounted on top of the dash to bring natural light below. The side window slides open.

Jeanneau NC 1095 sky lights

There are two side-by-side opening skylights built into the hardtop to bring light and air into the cabin. Note, they both have sun shades and insect netting built into the frames.


The galley is located on the starboard side, across from the dinette. There is open counter space, a double burner electric cooktop and a stainless steel single basin sink under removable hatch covers. We’d like to see Jeanneau incorporate dedicated storage for the hatch covers. Below there is a utensil drawer, a refrigerator, microwave oven, and more storage. There is also storage overhead.

Jeanneau NC 1095 galley

The galley on the NC 1095 is on the starboard side in one cabinet with a two-burner cooktop and stainless steel sink under hatch covers. A small microwave is below the stovetop.

Jeanneau NC 1095 sink

The single basin stainless steel sink is under the hatch cover. Note the stainless steel drink holder mounted in the counter. Of course, there are no fiddles.

Jeanneau NC 1095 cook top

Dual hatch covers are removed to access the built-in dual burner electric cooktop and store outboard service as a back splash.

Jeanneau NC 1095 refrigerator

The refrigerator is built into the cabinetry next to the microwave oven.

Jeanneau NC 1095 galley storage

There is in-deck galley storage. Note the dual gas assist struts that keep the hatch open for hands free access to the storage.

Jeanneau NC 1095 overhead storage

Jeanneau provided additional storage overhead in the galley. Note the indirect lighting is well executed.

Jeanneau NC 1095 interior light

Interior light switches are conveniently mounted on the starboard side just inside the entry.


The helm is mounted to the starboard side and is intuitively laid-out. The ergonomics are comfortable and visibility is excellent. There is a helm door that allows access to the NC 1095’s mid cleat.

Jeanneau NC 1095 helm dash

To help prevent glare, a tinted brow is mounted over the dash. A single 12” (30.5 cm) multi-screen display.

Helm Layout. A stereo is just above the Yamaha engine diagnostic screen to the right of the helm. Connectivity is below and to the right of the Yamaha display. Below are two beverage holders.

The engine control binnacle is mounted at an angle in a subpanel to the right. The steering wheel is mounted to a standard fixed base, tilt is an option. The VHF (not shown) has been mounted up overhead and to the right, and being on the side, the mic wire is kept from dangling in the line of sight. We are not fans of mounting VHF radios on the overhead brow, and would rather see it above the stereo control.

Jeanneau NC 1095 controls

Below and to the left of the wheel are the trim tab rockers, the optional bow thruster toggle, and the electrical rockers controlling all basic functions.

Jeanneau NC 1095 hatch

In the cabin below there’s a hatch that allows access to the back of the console for easy installation and servicing.

Jeanneau NC 1095 helm seat

The helm seat is a deep bucket-style seat with a cut-out to allow the operator to sit facing the settee.

Jeanneau NC 1095 helm seat bolster

The helm seat has a fold-up bolster for elevating the operator or for stand up operation.

Jeanneau NC 1095 foot rest

A footrest allows the operator to change positions on longer journeys.

Jeanneau NC 1095 helm door

Shown is the helm door access on the Jeanneau NC 1095. Note the 10” (25.4 cm) mid-cleat and recessed starboard side deck.


Jeanneau NC 1095 layout

The Jeanneau 1095 comes standard with two sleeping cabins below, but a third can be added in what is otherwise a storage area.

Master Cabin

The master cabin is fully forward and features an expandable island double berth. There are steps on the side. Natural light comes in from an overhead hatch and hull-side windows, one on each side. Storage is underneath the island berth, which is accessed by either lifting the berth or through a door in the front of the base.

Jeanneau NC 1095 master stateroom

The master stateroom on the NC 1095 has a simple centerline island berth with steps on each side.

Jeanneau NC 1095 under berth

Access to the under-berth storage is by lifting the berth or opening the door in the berth’s base. Note the gas-assist struts.

Jeanneau NC 1095 windows

Large hull-side windows and an overhead hatch bring in plenty of natural light into the forward cabin. The hatch opens to provide ventilation, and is required for emergency egress by ABYC and CE standards.

Guest Staterooms

On the test boat there were two guest staterooms. The Jeanneau NC 1095 comes standard with a single port side guest stateroom and a large storage locker on the starboard side.

Jeanneau NC 1095 guest cabin

The port side guest cabin includes a hull side window with opening portlight for ventilation.

Port Side Guest Cabin. There is an overhead skylight in the dressing area which provides 6’3” (1.91m) of headroom. A seat is just ahead of the double berth. The sleeping area measures 6’5” x 4’4” (1.96 m x 1.32 m) with headroom over the berth ranging from 2’8” (.81 m) down to 2’4” (.71 m).

Jeanneau NC 1095 guest cabin option

The second, and smaller, optional guest cabin on the test boat also had a hull-side window with an opening portlight.

Jeanneau NC 1095 second guest cabin

The second guest stateroom on the NC 1095 comes with a storage cubby alongside the 6’6" x 3’2” (1.98 m x .97 m) berth.

Jeanneau NC 1095 remote refrigerator

A remote refrigerator outside the second guest stateroom serves as a bit of a pantry.

Single Head

It is surprising that the head on the Jeanneau NC 1095 is not a wet head. There is a separate walk-in shower. The shower has a wand that can be mounted both high and low and the hull-side window has an opening portlight.

Jeanneau NC 1095 head

The Jeanneau NC 1095 head is replete with a high-low mounted shower wand in a separate walk in shower, a vessel sink with storage below.

Options to Consider

The Jeanneau NC 1095 is a new boat and the standards and options list have not been established. However, here are some options to consider.

  • • Air conditioning
  • • Aft Bimini cover
  • • Tilt base for steering wheel
  • • Third stateroom
  • • Bow thruster


The Jeanneau NC 1095 comes with a three-year general warranty. Five-year blister warranty. Seven-year structural warranty. Contact Jeanneau or a Jeanneau dealer for details.


The MSRP for the Jeanneau NC 1095 is $213,600, base boat – not with the twin 300-hp engines we tested.


The hallmark of the Jeanneau NC line is innovative ergonomics and adaptability, and dual use of seats. Think Transformers. This newest model keeps that philosophy and allows more functionality to be packed into a relatively small platform.

The Jeanneau NC 1095’s outboard power only adds to the attractiveness of this vessel. Our test of the Jeanneau NC 1095 showed superb handling. At the dock, the boat was nimble thanks to her optional bow thruster. Given her windage, her best cruise speed of 27 mph at 4000 rpm and fuel consumption of 1.2 mpg was reasonable.

This is obviously a boat built to as low a price point as possible and still have amenities that add utility and functionality to what would otherwise be a very basic boat. We are surprised at many of the amenities, given the price – things like the side-opening helm door, sliding cabin windows, sunroof with opening hatches, bulwark entry door, full standing headroom at the helm, windlass, and separate shower stall in the head.

Jeanneau understands what many builders do not: That the world is full of people who want only a boat that is safe, roomy, versatile, provides basic amenities, such as an electric head, a stove, some electronics, and maybe a windlass – at an affordable price.
