New Model: Jeanneau 46 Leader

Launched at the end of 2015 Jeanneau 46 Leader, flagship model of the sport cruiser range impresses for her sinuous profile. You can say that Italian design Garroni out did himself in the sweet lines of the Jeanneau Leader 46.  But the Leader 46 does not stop impressing with its exterior profile and goes even further by offering luxurious spaces and quality finish inside.  The main deck entirely on one level, offers a large U-shaped saloon to port side, a modular bench seat at the helm that converts into a sheltered sundeck, and a very attractive cockpit galley. Below the sleep accommodation of the  Leader 46 offers a choice of two or three double cabins layout, including a full beam midships owner’s suite.  Main guest cabin is located to forward and features a shared private head.  A third bunk guest cabin is available as option to port side, and replaces an L-shaped dinette.  Power starts with standard Volvo 370hp and stern drive propulsion, and goes up to 400hp units with stern drive or 435hp with IPS pod drives.
