Jeanneau Leader 46 by John Wooldridge

This article originally appeared in Southern Boating Magazine’s April 2017 issue. Solid performance, thoughtful layout, and maximum livability define the Jeanneau Leader 46 express cruiser. We idled out of the long, straight channel leading north from Kent Island Narrows into the Chester River on the eastern side of the Chesapeake Bay.
