Brief Summary

Empty nesters trading down and young couples moving up often converge in about the same place -- the mid-30' (10 meter) range. It's a popular size because you can cruise coastwise or inland with one or two couples without breaking the bank. The new Jeanneau Leader 10 at 35'7" falls squarely into that space. She is powered by twin gas or diesel sterndrive engines with joystick maneuvering which offers the best combination of speed, ease-of-handling, and cost. With two cabins and a hardtop with the option of a retractable soft top or sliding fiberglass sunroof, what is not to like?
