Jeanneau Leader 36 wins Best of Boats

In 1957, Henri Jeanneau, already passionate about aeroplanes and automobiles, had just discovered a brand new passion for powerboating, one that began as he watched a boat pass by his window. Soon afterward, in the small town of Les Herbiers, France, home to a rich heritage of artisan work, he began building a wooden hull with which he participated in the 6-hour Paris race, the largest national race at the time. He was first to cross the line.

Even though Henri Jeanneau is no longer with us, in so many ways, he still is and is still racing today. And winning!

Today we are delighted to be recognized and to receive the award of Best Boats for Families 2015. This award highlights and confirms the spirit of Henri Jeanneau and the LEADER range: sporty, livable boats, ideal for family cruising.
