I was recently asked to look at a Leeward 18 for a visual and verbal report upon its condition.
I have to say that this was one of those enjoyable marine surveys where even from a distance I could see that the boat was in really good condition.
The previous owner had kept a good schedule of maintenance for the vessel and her engine. She has a Mercuiser sterndrive diesel engine and was visually well kept.
Those boats have been built for fishing purposes as well as leisure use. The GRP hull is strongly built to a high standard. She features a large aft cockpit with plenty of space for the fishing gears and also has a neat little cabin to be sheltered from the sprays when reaching the fishing spot.
The hull design allows the boat to plane and reach any destination in no time at all. But also can be very easily trailed by road to get to further afield places.
Looking forward to more of these
