Aimed at the European market because the restriction on many inland waterways for “recreational” craft was 20 ft, the ’20’ is surprisingly roomy for its size. The hull was drafted by German designer Horst E. Glacier while the deck was designed by Brian Meerloo, thus starting with the more modern style from the beginning. For both serious offshore cruising and inshore pottering, it’s the ideal trailer-sailer, subsequently giving you a virtually unlimited choice of horizons.
Under sail the Leisure 20 is extremely stable, vice-free and fast, performing well under all types of conditions.
The spars are in aluminium alloy. Originally gold, the spars of later boats are black or silver. All standing rigging and rigging screws are stainless steel. Halyards are internal.
Under power it will cruise happily and economically with a five to seven horsepower outboard, being very manoeuvrable whether going ahead or astern.
Fin and twin keels are of cast iron, the latter being of high aspect ratio hydrofoil section. The centre board version has a galvanised mild steel plate, housed in a cast iron stub tube. Rudder and skeg are moulded GRP with steel framework and stainless steel fittings. A teak rubbing strake is standard and moulded non-slip areas on deck are designed to ensure safety.
The cockpit is deep and wide and features a outboard motor well in the stern, with the cover providing an additional seat or table.
The accommodation includes four sensibly sized cushioned berths with ample stowage space, finished in teak timbers and veneers with a full galley, including cooker and sink, fitted on the starboard side. with two large coach-roof windows on each side and a translucent fore-hatch. As a result, it is particularly light and airy.
Many Many extras with this boat, too much to list.
