Compact flybridge models are enjoying something of a renaissance of late, with launch of the Sealine F380 and Galeon 300 Fly at the tail end of last year.

Now French manufacturer Jeanneau has decided that it wants a slice of this action, and to that end comes the launch of the Jeanneau Velasco 37F.

In this video, boat test editor Jack Haines takes a look inside this new model at the 2015 CWM FX London Boat Show, where it made its public debut earlier this month.

Jack praises the practical layout, including a myriad of storage and a useful side door next to the helm, which allows for easy communication with the crew.

We also take a look at the surprisingly secure-feeling flybridge with its flexible seating configuration and well stocked upper helm.
