Cobramold Ltd., Essex

The Leisure 27 is a modern, moderately fast family cruiser, designed in 1977 by Frank Pryor for Cobramold. They are a fairly beamy, modern-looking small family cruiser, with good performance. They were also sold in kit form, so fit-out quality and hence price now may vary considerably.

Leisure 27

Cobramold produced a series of small cruisers in the 1970s and 80s, ranging from 17 to 29 feet. The Leisure 27 was one of the most popular, offering a stylish family yacht with good performance, and very good accommodation for her length, with 6 foot plus headroom in the saloon. The hull is solid GRP with foam ribs and stringers for stiffness, with a GRP balsa sandwich deck. The Leisure range were generally well built, the 27 having almost a 50% ballast ratio.

The interior has the galley to starboard, whilst on the port side a quarterberth runs back under the cockpit. On the port side is a single/double convertible berth (the double created when the table is lowered), with a single settee berth opposite. The heads compartment separates saloon and forecabin, with a hanging locker opposite the WC and basin.

The interior has a moulded headlining, with removable wooden trim panels to gain access to the underside of the deck and wiring, etc., if needed.


A fold-away chart table slides out from above the quarter berth when required.


The galley has useful workspace and sink, with stowage lockers above and below.


The forecabin has a normal vee-berth with infill to make a double, and the heads compartment has a marine WC and a small washbasin


Two different Volvo Penta diesels were fitted to these yachts, a single-cylinder 7.5 hp or a twin-cylinder 14 hp unit. Both drive via a Saildrive unit.
