jeanneau leader 33 vs Regal 35 Coupe

Postby Kel » Sun Jan 21, 2018 2:59 am

I just got back from the Chicago Boat show. Always thinking of moving up - I looked at the Regal 35 Coupe and while not at the show really like the Jeanneau Leader 33 or even 36.
Basa Marine had a 2018 Regal 35 Coup with a boat show price of $319k - but I don't remember all the options.

I really don't know that much about Jeanneau Leader but I really like their new Leader 33 though smaller than Regal 35 (34'7" vs 36'10" length and 10'10" vs 11"4" beam) - Spring Brook Marina in the Chicago area is the Jeanneau dealer and they have had a long time presence in the area and seem to provide quality service. My brother bought a boat from them in 1992.

I just don't know how reliable or well built the Jeanneau leader line is - the design of the Leader 33 is very innovative and I really like the design and layout.

I can either boat on the Mississippi or a big reservoir lake (big for iowa) where I am right now - either way I am about 50 miles away so I need weekend accommodations and whenever more than one person is aboard my 2665 is pretty cramped quarters.

Other perspectives on the subject are welcome. I always think what would a marine surveyor say about either one after a number of years of operation.

I have a Regal 35 diesel fully loaded. The Jeanneau leader 33 feature that strikes as great to me is the ability to create a copilot seat.

The Regal 35SC has amenities of a yacht, two AC units, two TVs, good sound system, smokeless BBQ, forward and aft subpar, etc. But we really miss a co-pilot seat, I would not purchase another cruiser without a place for spouse or guests to see where we are going.

A bit late on the reply, but if you are still looking, I would not hesitate on the Jeanneau from a quality standpoint. It's my favorite new design in this class of boats, and was my favorite overall until I saw an Aquila 36! Jeanneau's sailboats are well known for quality, and their powerboats appear the same. My only concern would be on resale value since they probably don't sell very many, but if your dealer is strong in that area, it will help.

I have been looking at this as well. I like new NC33 model. I really like the open door by the captain with the cleat right there to dock easily by yourself.

I also like a NC 33 with an enclosed cabin with sliding doors sunroof.

I do not know too much about their reliability or resale compared to Regal.

As much as I love my 32Express, I would love even more to move up one day to and enclosed cabin.

The enclosed cabin just seems so nice and for boats in the 33 range with AC for both areas. The canvas is such a pain.

That feauture is the only thing i would like to change in my SC35...
