distinguished, traditional all Australian practical and roomy cruiser,
renowned for its proven performance and excellent sea-keeping qualities
by popular demand has been upgraded, restyled and reintroduced from
the original successful Leeder 28 Series 1. The revamp boasts the
best value for dollar of a product cruiser its size and class anywhere
in the world.
The 280 Montego welcomes you to all worlds, be that of a peaceful
afternoon hanging on the anchor or a romantic relaxing evening in
pleasant surroundings in God's country. Perhaps cruising great distances
to your favourite fishing spot for an encounter with the largest mythical
fish you've only dreamed about...
Well, the Montego won't disappoint, with its modern interior layout
cleverly designed for maximum space and functionability in the saloon
and its large practical aft cockpit.
The master cabin is lined in padded vinyl fabric with traditional
vee berth convertable to a double bed with a filler cushion. Plushness
ensures no compromise for comfort in the cruiser.
The starboard galley has been designed with the ladies in mind: a
U shaped bench at a good working height, spring loaded lids covering
the stainless steel hot and cold sink and the 2 burner stainless steel
stove, giving extra working bench space. Refrigerator, microwave,
cupboard storage, cutlery drawer and crockery cabinet with cuprack
are all standard.
With 6'4" (1.93 metre) headroom in the galley and saloon, the
padded heat stretched vinyl embraces the open airy feeling of this
roomy cruiser which comes standard with lock-up saloon cabin doors
separating the cockpit area and securing the cruiser.
Portside is a large comfortable dinette raised on a plinth with seating
for four on fabric upholstered cushions. The table unclips to a lower
height forming a double bed with a filler cushion. An icebox and day
stowage under the seat make full use of all available space.
A 2 person thickly upholstered settee in the saloon lounge with stowage
under adds to the impressive surroundings, creating a separate social
area from the aft cockpit group of friends.

spacious cockpit allows a dual function. A wet bar and sink can be
added for the recreational cruisers with an abundance of seating available
