This victory highlights the fine results of the teamwork between Jeanneau and Garroni Design, the designer of the Leader 30.

The new Leader 30 carries the DNA of the line. The design owes its elongated profile to the talents of Garroni Design. She makes a statement with a sporty hull design by Mickael Peters Yacht Design. She delivers exceptional performance and seakeeping, all while benefiting from the latest innovations of the Leader line.

Long, continuous windows in the hull lengthen the silhouette of this Leader. The generously sized platform affords access to a large storage locker. The layout of the cockpit is characteristic of a Leader, with a luxurious contemporary design and enhanced comfort for life on board. The adjustable seatback of the co-pilot bench seat offers the choice between a cruising position and a saloon/sundeck position. The aft and side seatbacks recline to transform the space into a large, longitudinal sundeck.

Immense windows in the hull bathe the interior in natural light and offer an incredible view of the sea. With her high level of finish, the Leader 30 features an elegant interior. Notably, she boasts bulkheads in straight-grain walnut, furniture with lacquered finish, a large hanging locker to the starboard, and numerous storage compartments. The saloon also transforms into a double berth.
