A development of the successful Leisure 27, also designed by Frank Pryor and built by Cobramould Ltd. The Leisure 29 features the same interior layout with the waterline stretched aft of the companionway bulkhead to create a large cockpit and quarter berth. The same moulds were used by Jaguar yachts to build the later Lynx 29.
With a high volume interior LEGERE offers comfortable accommodation and sea kindly cruising for a crew of 6 if required. During the current ownership she has been continuously maintained with a recent Beta Marine diesel engine installation. Now lying ashore and winterised, north of Oban.

What the builders say…….
Launched in 1980 the Leisure 29 was a development of the already successful Leisure 27. The extract below is from the builders promotional flyer for the 1980 London Boat show.
'It's big, it's beautiful and the cockpit is a skipper's delight.
With the identical, luxurious 6-berth cruising accommodation of the popular '27', the new Leisure 29 is a completely new design aft of the main companionway bulkhead, both above and below the water line. The result is a really fast, sleek boat with an exceptionally large cockpit - 6'4" (1.98m) long.
Designed by Marine Consultant Frank Pryor, the Leisure 29 with its extremely comprehensive inventory offers incredible value for a boat of this size.
New Leisure 29 - A great way to sail into the eighties.'

Built in the boom years of GRP production yacht building in the UK the Leisure 29 was built to compete with other production builders of the day such as Moody and Sadler yachts.
