Hello from Canada! We are the proud new owners of an NC895. We take delivery as soon as the water opens up on Georgian Bay (Fingers crossed mid April). We live on Sturgeon Lake in Ontario which is on the Trent/Severn Canal system. We purchased our 895 at the Toronto Boat Show. What attracted us was the side door and easy access from the helm for mooring. Travelling the Trent canal system you learn quickly that locking and mooring is a real test of boating as a couple! We actually traded in our 35 ft Four Winns for the Jeanneau. We are also looking forward to being able to access sand bars and some great fishing in the lakes around us. Another attraction was the enclosed cabin with heating which will also extend our boating season here on the Great Lakes. Can't wait to get out on the water and enjoy a fantastic summer of boating.
