Jeanneau to Showcase 3 New Models at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show
At Intermarine Boats, we couldn’t be more thrilled that Jeanneau will be showcasing three new powerboats at the prestigious Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show this year, from Wednesday, October 28 through Sunday, November 1.
Allow us to introduce you to these innovative new boats.
The all-new Jeanneau Leader 12.5
Redesigned and built for luxurious comfort and superb performance, the all-new Jeanneau Leader 12.5 is a revolutionary departure from the ordinary.
This ingeniously designed large day cruiser offers sporty lines, generous interior volumes, distinct living areas, and perfect ergonomics for active boaters who love to live life on the water to its fullest.
Michael Peters Yacht Design, Sarrazin Design, and Jeanneau’s experienced design team have embraced innovative, high-end technology to create the Leader 12.5 The hull and stringers, molded as one single piece, allow for more fiberglass, less resin, and therefore less weight. The deep-V hull provides for a dry, smooth, and comfortable ride in a variety of sea conditions given its sharp entry, two lifting strakes, and a chine that runs the length of the hull.
Powered by three 4.2-liter 300HP Yamaha V6 four-stroke outboard engines, the 12.5 has an optimal cruising speed of between 30 and 35 mph, but it can reach high-end speeds up to 50 mph.
On deck, a portside walkaround deck connects the forward and aft cockpits. The forward U-shaped cockpit features a raised triple chaise lounge facing forward and additional bench seating in the bow, and can be enhanced with an optional table, sun pad filler cushions, or a retractable sunshade.
The helm station, equipped with a 3-seat leaning post with armrests, houses a large dashboard to accommodate either 12 or 16-inch twin Garmin screens.
The aft cockpit offers a spacious L-shaped bench with a seatback that folds up to create a sunbathing space, as well as a fiberglass table with removable legs. A unique “terrace” drops down to port with the flip of a switch to expand the entertaining space and provide access to the water. On the starboard side of the aft cockpit, you’ll find an easy-access boarding gate. For more thorough sun protection, you can add an optional remote-controlled SureShade awning.
There’s also an entertainment island, with a cockpit galley including a working countertop with an electric grill, two sinks, and a 13-gallon fridge, as well as lots of storage for galley items. Options include a live well, a second 13-gallon fridge, or an ice maker, as well as a bulkhead-mounted television.
Below decks, you’ll find a fully equipped galley with a ceramic cooktop or gas stove and fridge, with room for an optional microwave. The salon forward converts to a king-size bed, and the spacious, full-width master cabin is midships offers a full king bed. On the starboard side is a roomy enclosed head with shower.
Whether you out cruising for the weekend with family or entertaining friends for the day, the Leader 12.5 has it all – luxury, comfort, and livability.
The Re-imagined Jeanneau Leader 10.5
Capable of covering long distances at relatively fast cruising speeds, Jeanneau has re-imagined the Leader 10.5 to provide optimal comfort on board.
Whether you’re hosting lunch or dinner for 10 on board or spending the weekend out with family, the Leader 10.5 features a sleek, sporty design and offers two distinct outdoor living spaces in combination with a comfortable, light, and spacious interior.
The Leader 10.5 is built on an innovative hull designed in collaboration with Michael Peters, Sarrazin Design, and Jeanneau’s own experienced design teams. Based on a one-piece mold that fuses the hull and stringers, the Leader 10.5’s deep-V hull provides for the same dry, smooth and comfortable ride as her big sister, the Leader 12.5.
The Leader 10.5 is powered by twin 4.2-liter 300HP Yamaha V6 four-stroke outboard engines, chosen for their size, light weight, and performance.
On deck there’s a comfortable cockpit saloon aft that includes an integrated, fully equipped cockpit galley and a large table with generous, wraparound bench seating. There’s also a manual drop-down side terrace with swim ladder to expand the aft deck for more space to entertain, launch water toys, or just enjoy swimming.
There’s also a large, comfortable forward cockpit for relaxing underway or at anchor that features integrated lounge chairs and comfortable, adjustable bench seating.
Below decks, the Leader 10.5 is light and spacious, featuring a fully equipped galley, as well as comfortable and private sleeping space for 4 people. The forward saloon transforms into a private cabin with a cushion insert; and the aft cabin offers a double berth and spacious head compartment with a separate shower. A privacy curtain separates the cabins, or you can choose an optional privacy door for true separation.
The reconceptualized Jeanneau 795 Series 2
Always innovating, Jeanneau has completely transformed its popular 795 to offer a brand-new experience in casual weekend boating.
The 795 features a dynamic new hull design that provides more interior volume while maintaining its traditional deep-V shape. Her new hull design allows for larger engines, allowing for more powerful acceleration, greater stability, and more comfort and driving pleasure.
The U-shaped cockpit aft offers inviting, spacious, and flexible space for family coastal cruising. With folding bench seats, a sliding aft seat, you can transform the space into a sundeck using the adjustable table and sun cushion. The generous aft swim platform provides the perfect base for swimming or launching water toys.
Below decks you’ll find a bright, well-lit, and comfortable interior with a compact, yet fully equipped galley, sleeping space for two in the forward berth, and an enclosed head compartment with a hot water shower.
The 61st annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show runs from Wednesday, October 28 through Sunday, November 1, 2020. You can visit the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show’s website for the latest information, tickets, schedules, and maps.
