Leopard Catamarans is excited and proud to introduce the Leopard 48. Focused on blue water performance and comfortable living, the Leopard 48 is a welcome addition to the award winning Leopard line. From the design table and factory floor of the catamarans industries leading manufacturer, the Leopard 48 comes with the pedigree sailors have come to expect from Leopard catamarans.
Her modern lines, open floor plan and casual elegance set a new standard for the modern cruising catamarans. Drawing on the success of the Leopard 44, the Leopard 48 features a large forward cockpit with direct access from the saloon and foredeck. The raised helm station with easy access to the cockpit and side deck allows for shorthanded sailing while not separating you from your family and friends.
The starboard hull is entirely dedicated to the owner, with a large private cabin, study area, separate head and shower room and attractive beech wood finishes throughout. The port hull accommodates two spacious guest cabins each with en suite head and separate shower. The signature ‘walk-through’ access to the roomy cockpit and aft bathing platform connecting the two transoms, completes this exciting new model. (Also available with 4 cabins.)
Evolving from 40 years of customer feedback, we pooled our expertise with builders Robertson and Caine to design the Leopard line of blue water cruising catamarans. As the Canadian dealer for Leopard Catamarans, we're proud to say that over 1200 Leopard cats have now sailed more than 11 million miles and the world’s largest oceans.
These cats have won both Cruising World Boat of The Year and Sail Magazine Best Boats awards including the 2010 Best Boats award from SAIL Magazine in the Cruising Multihull category and the Cruising World Boat of the Year 2010 in the Multihull Cruiser and Overall Import Boat of the Year category! They offer offer unparalleled standards for seaworthiness and cruising performance, combined with comfort and an extensive equipment list.
The award-winning Leopard catamaran range consists of the brand new and innovative Leopard 44, Leopard 48 and Leopard 58 and the popular Leopard 39 in sail configuration. Leopard Catamarans include, high powered engines, electronics, hard top bimini, high capacity water and fuel tanks, electric windlass and much more! We also offer a selection of optional items, such as air conditioning, water maker or washer-dryer.
Robertson and Caine use a proven GRP sandwich construction with a vacuum bonded balsa core, providing high rigidity, impact resistance and buoyancy. The deck and bulkheads are bonded to the hull with advanced adhesives. Glass tabbing is applied in high stress areas, to ensure maximum strength.
The hull laminate is light and durable resulting in a dynamic weight-carrying capacity and excellent motion reaction of the hull, yet is also strong for peace of mind when sailing.
Our catamarans contain all the top features that sailor's desire, including blue water capability, great performance, solid construction, a superb anchoring system, excellent ventilation, high quality equipment, large tank capacities (standard) and a standard hard top on all models. Standard equipment can be enhanced by a range of quality optional items including generator, air-conditioning, water-makers and more.
