Approximately 200 Leisure 22's were built from 1970. The Leisure 22 was designed and built to meet for a 4/6-berth family cruiser without sacrificing the versatility and performance required by the yachtsman. This is quite a heavy and very sea worthy boat and proved popular in the UK and in Holland.

The Leisure 23/23SL, a very successful family cruiser

Launched in 1973 the Leisure 23 was almost an instant success. In 1975 the Leisure 23SL version was produced with the more modern deck style. Altogether around 900 boats were built up to 1990. The Leisure 23 is often confused with the Leisure 22 as they are similar. They are easy to tell apart by looking at the transoms, which are quite different, the Leisure 23SL has a reverse transom angled backwards from the waterline to the deck.

Balanced modern rig design, high technology twin keels, and a long waterline length contribute to a sea kindly design that will look after the crew, and is fast on and off the wind. As far as we are aware only one prototype was built.
