We have very little information about the Leisure 26.
Built from the same moulds, and virtually identical to the well known Oyster 26, we are indebted to Alan Murphy for the following brochure images, which were scanned from an original brochure, and to Fernando Mañas and Ervino Brumat for the photographs. The main difference between the Leisure and the Oyster is the rig, which was 7/8 on the Oyster, and is 3/4 on the Leisure.
We know that very few were built, possibly only one or two. If you have further information about this yacht please contact the Webmaster.
Click on the following thumbnail images for a full size PDF of the brochure. The PDF will open into a new browser window. You can then scroll around the image, and/or select to save it to your own machine for later use.
Leisure yachts (bar the Leisure 17) are seldom raced. The only yardstick information we have is the Recorded Number (RN) as follows. RN Recorded Numbers are published by the RYA on the basis of limited information.
