LEEDER 710 HARDTOP


Floor Plan and Photos       Specifications       Standard and Optional Features
The design concept behind the Leeder 710 from Leeder Marine was to produce a fast offshore cruiser with a modern distinctive appearance and make it available in both Hard Top and Flybridge versions.
Rakish lines, reverse sheer, spacious cabin and cockpit, plus a host of innovative features, place the design well ahead of any other pleasure craft of similar size.
On the Leeder 710, interior space seems to take on increased dimensions with the amount of livable room planned to allow a wide range of activities. As a result of its well-planned accommodation and interior fitout, the 7.10 metre express cruiser is ideal for family weekend or more extended cruising. Though some of the layout is conventional, such as the placement of the vee berths in the fore cabin, the boat reflects the forward thinking of a team of skilled designers and master boatbuilders.
The two berths in the fully lined and carpeted fore cabin easily convert to a full-width double sleeper through the use of a single insert. Immediately aft and to port is a hanging locker, while opposite is a completely separate toilet compartment with a high gloss lacquered finish. These are features women will appreciate in particular - especially those who have previously been expected to cope with an under-bunk toilet or scramble to find sufficient storage in a small cabin cruiser.
The main helm is to starboard at the forward end of the roomy saloon. The skipper has a comfortably cushioned helm chair, engine controls are logically positioned, while the dashboard allows easy monitoring of all instruments.
An ingeniously designed galley is located behind the control station. The unit includes a two-burner stove that is hidden away under the helm chair when not in use, a sink with pressure water supply and an extending worktop/table. Opposite is a convertible dinette/berth where many other boatbuilders remain content to place a simple swivel seat. Lift one of the dinette cushions and a self-draining icebox is ready for immediate use.
The foredeck has a big hatch so that lines and anchors can be handled without going on deck, and a self-draining anchor well so they don't have to be brought into the boat. The flybridge is reached by ascending a vertical ladder positioned to port at the forward end of the cockpit. The bridge has padded chairs for skipper and navigator, a venturi screen to deflect the slipstream, and a secondary steering station with engine controls and instrumentation.
Despite all the creature comforts that have been included in the cabin and saloon, the Leeder 710 still has all the cockpit space needed for fishing or relaxing. There are padded jump seats each side of the engine installation and a cockpit shower at the transom. Access to the cockpit from the water or a dinghy is provided by a full-width marlin board and a folding ladder.
The secret of the Leeder 710's offshore ability lies in the design of the hull, with underwater lines that enable it to give a very soft ride even in rough water. So whether an owner chooses either a Hard Top or Flybridge version, he will experience the delights of the craft's scintillating high speed performance. The Leeder 710 express cruiser is a truly outstanding combination of aggression and elegance that would be at home on any waterway anywhere in the world.
