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

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.

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

LEADER 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
it performs like a day boat with an available T-top with canvas covermto 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
engine 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!
