Mark Ellis redifined the concept of a motorsailer with this handsome design which performs well under sail and power.
BLUE LEADER is designed to be either sailed or powered by a small crew. Her pilothouse offers 360-degree visibility and full controls to operate the boat protected from the weather. A Leisure Furl boom, electric winches, roller furling genoa and autopilot assist in shorthanded sailing.
The cockpit and salon are on one level offering spacious areas for entertaining. The attention to detail and lovely joinerwork below are first class and provide a comfortable spacious interior for cruising or living aboard.
BLUE LEADER has been well maintained and is offered by her second owner.
