    In this fifth edition of our magazine, we continue our series of
    interviews with members of the Jeanneau family and friends.
    Through these columns, we can glimpse the very essence of
    our shipyard, because Jeanneau is first and foremost about
    the men and women who share their passion for the sea with
    customers around the world, and who employ sophisticated
    techniques daily to produce increasingly more competitive,
    high-performance boats. In this edition, we present several of
    our newest sailboat and powerboat models.

    We discuss the position and organisation of our export services,
    including the value Jeanneau places on powerboat development,
    which represents 70 percent of the total revenue. Then, in
    the pages that follow, we feature the diverse portraits of our
    colleagues and business associates, members of the Jeanneau
    dealer network, the stories from our customers, who are sailors
    to the core and proud of their achievements, and others who are
    enthusiastically organising transatlantic sailing events.

    In this edition, we also take a look at interior decoration styles,
    suggesting a variety of ways to enhance a boat’s interior with
    touches that reflect the owner’s personality. While pleasure
    cruisers often choose to decorate in a classic style, we invited
    an expert to offer ideas for redecorating with the rhythm of the
    seasons or according to your inclination.

    The Jeanneau Owners’ Magazine, in which we share stories and
    discuss our mutual passion for the sea, has also been given a
    fresh new look, with a more contemporary, fluid layout.

    We hope that you will enjoy reading this edition
    as much as we enjoyed creating it for you.

     The Merry Fisher 725
     Are you a long-haul fisherman or a coastal cruiser? ?
     With the new Merry Fisher 725, Jeanneau is opening up new perspectives for ambitious fishermen and pleasure cruisers who
     seek to lengthen their daytrips. The 140-to-150 HP outboard engine is extremely fuel efficient, and the tulip-shaped stern is an
     excellent deflector. It features two double berths, one in the forward cabin and the other in the saloon, which transforms into:
     a large open space, a cockpit saloon or a sundeck. With this boat, Jeanneau is expanding on the popular concept of the Merry
     Fisher 625, which sold over 2,000 boats, and Jeanneau confirming its place as a leader in the market of fisher-cruisers.
