This is such an exciting time in boating! While we feel very sorry for people whose health and lives have been negatively impacted by COVID-19, the situation has prompted many to change their vacation plans, spend more time with family and to vacation at home in Canada. The result has been a boat market that is just on fire!

New or used, boats have been selling fast in Canada and we think this is a trend that will last for many years. People are seeing life in a very different light now and a boat can be a major part of their recreation plans.

Jeanneau is part of the world’s largest builder of pleasure boats and in an unprecedented push to bring new and exciting products to the market, Jeanneau is announcing four all-new Jeanneau Outboard Powerboats for the 2021 Model Year!

 

LEADER OUTBOARD SERIES DESIGNED FOR UNMATCHED VERSATILITY

Having first landed in North America in 2016, the Leader series is taking the market by storm thanks to the clever use of space centered around family use, simplicity, and efficiency. With a hull designed by Michael Peters of Sarasota, Florida, the Leader series delivers satisfying performance and efficiency to go with the great accommodations.

Leader 6.5 CCLEADER 6.5 CC
The Leader 6.5 CC is a model that already existed in Europe, but has never been sold in America until now. The Leader 6.5 CC is a fun centre console layout packed with great features. Some would call it a centre console, but performs like a day boat with a head compartment and an available T-top with canvas cover to keep the center of gravity low while shading your guests.

The Leader 6.5 CC is powered with a 200 HP engine that will take her to over 45
miles per hour, (smaller engines options available) and there is an available tow bar for wakeboarding and tubing fun. The oversized swim platforms give easy access to the water.

The front cockpit is either open, or can be transformed into a sunbed for a choice of safe seating under way, or lounging at anchor or on the dock. The cushions can simply be stored by lifting the seat located in front of the console for direct access to the storage compartment! Then, at the helm you can choose between the standard, or upgraded bolster seats, or a leaning post for a sportier driving position. The aft cockpit seating is very versatile and can transform into a cocktail area, or another sunbed as if you were on a thirty-footer!

Length Overall 22’ 6”
Beam 8’ 1”
Displacement (without engines) 2,249 lbs

Leader 10.5 Series 2LEADER 10.5 SERIES 2
Inspired by the larger Leader 12.5, the all new Leader 10.5 Series 2 replaces the previous generation launched five years ago. This incredible boat features an all-new running surface and the entire hull is now vacuum-bag resin-infused bringing more strength and rigidity to this sport boat.

Jeanneau continues to think outside the box, delivering a lot of the design and comfort elements offered on the larger Leader 12.5. The forward cockpit now has 3 integrated chaise lounges that are safe and comfortable for seating underway, or at anchor.

The cockpit brings incredible versatility to cater to the needs of the entire family spending a day on the water, or for a couple escaping for a long weekend. A highlight is the outdoor galley located just behind the helm seats. This includes a fridge, electric grill, sink, and more. Optional flip-down cockpit benches can create a U-shaped lounge for gracious entertaining!

Another impressive feature of this new Leader 10.5 is the standard opening terrace on the port side. Equipped with an optional ladder and guardrails, it is the perfect spot to jump into the water from. For comfort, the oversized and fully equipped optional T-Top can provide the shade and functionality you need for an awesome day on the water.

The helm features three separate seats with bolsters and armrests for maximum comfort underway. The dash can accommodate up to two 12-inch Garmin displays and all the control buttons are at your fingertips.

Down below, the cabin features large windows to bring natural light during the day. Aft you will find a sleeping area that can either be open to the rest of the cabin, or closed off while forward, Jeanneau’s traditional breakfast nook converts into a V-berth and for your complete comfort, the Leader 10.5 can be equipped with air conditioning and a generator for those hot summer nights.

Leader 12.5LEADER 12.5
This 40-footer has a multi-mission attitude: a do-everything layout above and a lower deck that combines clever and comfortable space for overnighting. This all springs from the brilliant collaboration of Sarrazin Design, the performance specialists at Michael Peters Design, and Jeanneau’s own experienced design staff.

The Leader 12.5 features a new high-end infusion hull where the stringers and the hull are
molded into one piece providing more fiberglass and less resin. With 21 degrees of deadrise at the transom, the deep-V hull design has a sharp entry, two lifting strakes, and a spray-reducing chine that extends the full length of the hull, providing predictable handling and exceptional comfort across a wide range of conditions.

On the main deck, twin cockpits, ahead and behind the hardtop-protected helm console, offer flexible seating, sunning and dining options for those who prize a life afloat in open-air surroundings. A wide walk-around deck to port leads to the forward cockpit, which offers raised triple chaise lounge seating facing forward. Options like a portable table and filler cushion reimagine this space as a private sun pad.

There is easy boarding access via the starboard side entry door. The aft cockpit is packed with
imaginative features, including a roomy L-shaped lounge with a seatback that folds into a comfy sun pad, and with a fiberglass table on removable legs. Engage a switch to reveal the electric drop-down terrace to port, increasing the entertaining space. An optional remote controlled SureShade sun-awning can be added as well.

The Leader 12.5 features a full cockpit galley with room for outdoor food prep including a working countertop, electric grill, two sinks (optional or livewell), a 13-gallon fridge, and loads of storage for kitchenware plus, options for a second 13-gallon fridge or an ice maker.

The raised helm station offers 360-degree views and three high-back helm chairs with leaning post capabilities. The large dash can accommodate a pair of Garmin 16” chartplotters, has a tilting wheel operating powering hydraulic steering and standard Joystick HelmMaster docking.

Down below, the Leader 12.5 interior is cooled by 12,000 + 8,000 BTU Air Conditioning units and there is a fully equipped galley with ceramic cooktop, fridge, optional microwave and storage. Forward, the salon seating transforms to a king size bed while the midship owner’s cabin also has a filler cushion to create a full-sized king bed. To starboard there is a spacious enclosed head.

Triple 4.2-liter, 300-horsepower Yamaha V6 outboards are the optimal engine package offering cruising speeds from 30 mph to 35 mph, and a top-end speed of 50 mph when conditions allow!

NC OUTBOARD SERIES - THE ULTIMATE WEEKENDER
Acronym for New Concept, the NC series continues to climb the ranks of the outboard-powered cabin cruiser category. Following the very successful launch of the NC 1095 (35 feet) in 2019, the year 2021 will see the arrival of an all New NC 795 weekender. It’s the perfect boat for today’s pleasure craft ambitions.

NC 795 SERIES 2
True to the NC spirit, the all-new NC 795 is a fun weekender that will amaze you on every trip you take. With a 250 HP outboard engine, she is ready for all adventures.

The outdoor space is laid out for coastal cruising. The U-shape cockpit is spacious and convertible, made to adapt to your needs. Two coolers can be stowed under the cockpit benches. Access to the boat can be via the oversized swim platforms, or a side boarding gate on starboard.

Part of the DNA of Jeanneau is the ability to completely raise the outboard engine out of the water without losing seating space in the cockpit. This New Concept and its coupe configuration provide plenty of protected space inside as well as room for 4 people to overnight on the boat. With face to face seating at a table on port, the dinette can be easily converted into an additional bed.

A key feature of the NC 795 S2 is the co-pilot bench that converts into the aft-facing dinette bench. On starboard, the galley offers various configurations, and the helm station just forward allows you to be in command with everything easy to reach.

Below are the head and shower compartment plus, a vee-berth to sleep two. The versatile cabin features great airflow from two air vents cleverly placed above the windshield and driving air to the cabin at higher speeds. Built for adventure and action, a stand-up Paddle Board rack is a factory option. So is a 12VDC air conditioning system that works off lithium-ion batteries or shore power.

WinterizationBy Andrew McDonald, Lakeside Marine Services

“They don’t make ‘em like they used to”, is a phrase that many of us are familiar with. Most of the time it is in reference to a bygone era of better, and it’s used to lament the sorry state of what we have today. It is a phrase that can be applied to many areas of our lives: architecture, art, furniture, tools. Boats? I would argue that they don’t make them like they used to. But, is that lamentable, or is it progress?

Progress, I think. With this concept in mind, as we enter another season of putting boats to bed for the winter, why do we winterize as we always have?
