Here is an extract from Jeanneau's Press release on this exciting addition to the Leader range:
PERFORMANCE AND A DISTINGUISHED LOOK
The new LEADER 46 carries the same DNA of the line, making a statement with a sporty hull designed by J&J Design. The design owes her sleek profile to the talents of Garroni Design. Available with IPS propulsion or stern drive, the new Leader 46 offers superior quality performance and seakeeping abilities.
3 EXTERIOR LIVING SPACES
To satisfy the customer who enjoys day trips and family cruising, the exterior layout of the new Leader 46 does a marvellous job of separating the different living spaces on board. Firstly, the spacious sport top is laid out on a single level and features a large, U-shaped saloon to port side, a copilot bench seat closed to the helm that converts into a sheltered sundeck, as well as a very attractive cockpit galley.
>The opening roof on the sport top slides widely, instantly transforming the Leader 46 into a large open model.
>The helm benefits from a sought-after design that is enhanced by perfect ergonomics and a superb black finish.
>On the Foredeck, the comfortable sundeck invites relaxation, complete with a mattress with adjustable backrests.
>To the aft, a vast sundeck faces to an immense swim platform (hydraulic control optional), which becomes an outdoor living space while at anchor.
>An integrated galley and tender garage make this an exceptional model.
LEADER 46: A TOP-OF-THE-LINE EXPRESS MODEL EXPRESS OR CLEVER COUPE?
Particularly destined for cruising, an optional aft sliding glass panel allows for closing or fully opening the sport top toward the aft.
INNOVATIVE AND LUXURIOUS INTERIOR
The luxurious interior design of the LEADER 46 will seduce you with her contemporary spirit that has been carefully studied down to the smallest details (wide windows in the hull, new design for furnishings, indirect lighting, new materials...).
The owner's suite is a pleasant surprise, with her superb central cabin (centreline berth) and a king-size, modular head and shower compartment.
The guest cabin and private head and shower compartment offer the same luxurious details and overall comfort (berths may be separated, copious storage).
The comfortable saloon with sea views faces a first-rate galley that is particularly serviceable.
Fully modular, the Leader 46 is also offered in a 3-cabin version that is particularly well adapted to the closed sport top version. The LEADER 46 has been designed for those who love speed, high-performance cruising, comfort and the simple pleasures of life aboard.
2017 Revisions: The Leader 46 now offers an aft cockpit saloon that transforms into a sundeck and is compatible with an aft platform galley. For pictures of this innovation refer to the picture gallery
