Dan Leech Naval Architecture

L975 Semi Displacement Power Cat

This boat has been designed for a family of five with three children to spend extended periods of time cruising around the Hauraki Gulf and Bay Of Islands. The large interior volume and cockpit space will make for very comfortable cruising for the family.

The L975 is being built from composite e glass / foam panels, cnc cut and built in a kitset build system.

Twin 90hp four stroke Honda outboards will power this boat.


‘We were considering buying a second hand power boat when a friend of the family showed us his Leech 825 power cat design. It made perfect sense immediately as it ticked all the boxes for our family. We visited Dan and were treated to a trip on his own 825 on Lyttelton Harbour. We were sold on the concept and proceeded with having Dan design us a 9.75m version to suit our five person family. Dan helped us every step of the way to customise it to suit our family’s needs and helped us make our requirements work within the parameters and the result is amazing. We will start the build soon and can’t wait to get on the water. Thanks Dan.’
