Some may ask, what is the Great Loop? America's Great Loop is a circumnavigation of the eastern part of the United States and Canada. This includes the Intercoastal Waterway (ICW), the Canals in New York and Canada, the Great Lakes, the inland rivers, and the Gulf of Mexico.

The circumnavigation totals around 6,000 miles and is a wonderful way to discover the hidden gems of North America.

For Hart Robinson, the Great Loop has always been on his bucket list. Most "Loopers" begin the adventure during retirement, but for Hart, he wanted his wife, Laura, and four children to be able to go on this voyage together as a family. The plan was to participate in the Great Loop by breaking up each leg to work with their schedule.

In December of 2020, they trailered their new Jeanneau Merry Fisher 895 to Florida to knock out that leg of the Loop. The 29-foot cabin cruiser includes two berths down below with a convertible berth in the salon. It was the perfect boat for his family of six to enjoy time together over the holiday season.

Merry Fisher 895: An incomparably bright interior and even greater comfort on board for shared moments of fun and relaxation.
Designed for cruising, the Merry Fisher 895 is a true weekender.

She offers an incomparably bright interior, with wide windows in the helm station and even more comfort for those special shared moments on board.

The cockpit features an L-shaped saloon, reclining seatbacks and armrests with cup holders.

Both on the interior and on the exterior, the seatbacks pivot to adjust the seating to suit individual preferences.

This Merry Fisher features an opening side gate, a recessed sidedeck, as well as a very generous storage capacity. The main cabin, with wide windows, is equipped with a head with shower and marine WC.

With her clever details, the Merry Fisher 895 makes unforgettable cruises possible, perfect for sharing unique moments together as a family!
