Motor Boats Monthly has been to the south of France to test out the new Jeanneau Leader 40 open sportscruiser, which first saw on dry land at the 2013 Paris Boat Show.

 

MBM boat tester Nick Burnham applauds Jeanneau’s decision to retain an open model within its sportscruiser range, despite contrary market trends.

Nick also looks at the convertible aft sunbed in the cockpit, as well as the myriad seating options on the Leader 40.

Taking to the water, Nick also comments on visibility, the helm position and how the hull copes with the choppy conditions that we encountered.

Below deck, we take a closer look at the conventional layout, including the dinette, well-stocked galley, both cabins, and the heads.

Nick’s full boat test review is published in the July edition of Motor Boats Monthly, which is out now.
