Good example of the ever popular Merry Fisher range from Jeanneau. This is the Merry Fisher 635 which provides a stable and reliable platform from which to primarily fish, but also enjoy the water with the family. At just over 20 feet in length, the Merry Fisher 635 packs in a double berth cabin, wheelhouse helm position and a deck space that will accommodate 4 anglers with ease.
The engine is mid mounted for stability. The power unit in this case is the super efficient Nanni 5.250 TDi. The 5 cylinder, 85hp diesel is so economical you will think the fuel gauge is broken. She will cruise happily at 12-14 knots all day and with a clean bottom will achieve 17 knots with ease. Being mid mounted makes the boat more stable and having shaft drive power allows greater manoeuvrability at low speeds. This boat is fitted with a secondary trolling throttle in the cockpit and a removable tiller.
Boat is well equipped to enjoy a day afloat. There is a decent Garmin Chart plotter/depth sounder and an Icom DSC VHF. Also included are the usual warps, fenders, anchor and horseshoe buoy.
