Each Leidi boat is unique
The Leidi shipyard has become one of the leading manufacturers of pleasure boats in Croatia, building a loyal following with almost 20 years of experience. Their models include the Leidi 490, 600, 660, and 800, and a new Leidi 990 in the works for 2022. This is a big step for the company, as they have billed it as a “mini yacht” with modern lines, retaining the distinctive design found in all other Leidi vessels. Continuous development and investment in new production technologies and models have been the formula for their success.
This is one of the most popular models and a class leader due to its maximum utilization of space, with a lower deck that can be compared to much longer vessels. The design follows the guidelines set by the larger Leidi 800, with a retro-style hull-colored roof and integrated solar panels. Maximum side windows allow plenty of light and greater sailing pleasure, while a single windscreen increases visibility and safety as on the larger model. Better ventilation and more daylight are provided by four more windows at the front of the cabin, which is claimed to be the tallest in its class.
This vessel has a walk around layout with ample passages around the cabin with handrails for additional security. Its cockpit is very roomy, with as many as six large storages facilities. The salon has four seats to the left that convert into a double bed, while to the right is a comfortable galley block and console. On the lower level to the right, there is a toilet with a sink and a shower, to the left is the entrance to the aft cabin, while straight ahead is the main cabin with wardrobes. The vessel is category C, registered for 8 people, and has 6 beds. It is designed for outboard and inboard engines ranging from 50-300 hp. The maximum speed achieved is 32 knots.
This vessel will have an LOA of 10 meters and a beam of 3.30 meters, with a wider starboard isle equipped with a sliding side door. The sundeck on the bow will be equipped with an integrated bimini top, while recessed solar panels large enough for electrical autonomy are housed on the roof. In the lower deck, three separate cabins are planned, with the owner's cabin sporting an island bed and wardrobes, and two aft cabins. The hull has been designed for speeds of 5-20 knots, and can be powered by two smaller engines or a larger single engine.
