In reference to maritime style and sophistication, the NC 14 is considered to be the flagship in the Jeanneau line of boats. There are several unique characteristics that set this model apart from the majority of luxury boats currently on the market. These will allow the NC 14 to be ideal for leisure cruises, long-term excursions or indeed any activity that requires both luxury and functionality. So, it proves wise to have a further look at some of the amenities that this model has to offer.
Accommodations and Design
Like all NC models, this version embraces the concept of a « flat on the water ». Using flush flooring surfaces, multipurpose furniture and an open environment, the very social nature of this boat is clear. This is largely accomplished by modular furniture and features such as a galley that remains hidden on the port side until it needs to be used. Likewise, the aft saloon can be adjusted to accommodate for more space; again stressing the modular and adaptable nature of this boat.
One of the unique features of all NC models by Jeanneau is the fact that many of the functional items are obscured from view, thus allowing for maximum comfort while on the water. Not only does this include the aforementioned fully functional galley, but a massive storage unit located below the main quarters provides ample space for a variety of stowage purposes. Thus, a marriage of form and function is easily seen in the NC 14.
Sparing no expense, another highlight of this model is the large and open seating area. From fold-out tables to plush couches and the ability to utilise curtains to separate these quarters from the pilot’s area, an added sense of privacy and relaxation can be encountered.
Another feature that has been espoused in this model is the ability for all guests to relax while on any excursion. A stunning example of this is a dining area that can be easily transformed into a comfortable sofa. The large glass windows provide excellent views of the sea while the electrically powered overhead skylights offer ample lighting.
The roomy sleeping cabin provides a wide berth for two people to rest comfortably. The large single bed can also be modified into two separate beds if necessary. The guest cabin can similarly be transformed from a single sleeping area into two double berths. Private bathroom access is also provided for the guest room.
This Jeanneau model comes in two versions. Two cabins and two toilet areas are available while in another version, the second bathroom is conveniently modified to contain a desk and a movable seat. The bathrooms themselves are quite spacious; boasting a separate toilet and an impressive shower compartment that would rival any home-based unit.
The NC 14 is equipped with a feature known as IPS drive. This system is available in two models; the IPS 500 offering a Volvo engine with higher
horsepower and a top speed above an impressive thirty knots. The advantage that the IPS system provides is that regardless of speed, fuel consumption remains constant This immensely saves on petrol during any journey. It can be easily controlled by joystick and steering wheel, therefore allowing the boat to be navigated with ease. A sliding door equipped in the pilot’s area provides easy access to the gangway and this system will also enable the captain to more easily dock the boat.
Espousing a melange of all of the traditional elements in the range of NC models, the Jeanneau NC 14 is the definition of style, space and luxury. These are some of the primary reasons as to why this truly magnificent boat continues to attract so much attention.
