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.
"Just wanted to let you know how much of a pleasure it was doing the wiring on OpsMobil (48 Leopard). With the schematics Leopard provides it makes identifying and understanding the circuits and systems on their boats a snap. I can only imagine how much time this saves technicians and owners doing installations or trying to understand how the systems are laid out on board the boat."

In 1994, South African builder Robertson and Caine entered into an agreement with the premier global yacht charter company, The Moorings, to manufacture specifically designed catamarans for its charter fleet. In less than 4 years, Robertson and Caine delivered the 100th catamaran to The Moorings, with every one of them delivered on their own bottoms around the world: what better proof of their blue water capabilities? The range is now the backbone of the fleets of catamarans in The Moorings and Sunsail. You can place your Catamaran in the Island Cruising fleet, close to home and the Preferred partner of Sunsail in Canada.
In 2000, the relationship expanded with the launching of Leopard Catamarans to provide these popular catamarans to individuals wishing to own a Leopard catamaran with more upgrades, features, and options for private use outside of a charter fleet. With exclusive representation worldwide, Leopard Catamarans offers all models with high quality fittings and classy 3 or 4 cabin owner layouts. With over 25 years of customer feedback received from charter guests, Leopard Catamarans has a clear competitive advantage. Leopard Catamarans takes customers’ desires to heart and acts on them by pooling their expertise with the Robertson and Caine design team, as well as some of the world’s leading naval architects. As the worldwide dealer, we’re proud to say that over 1800 Leopard catamarans have now sailed more than 12 million miles and the world’s largest oceans.
In 2007 Leopard Catamarans expanded into the growing power catamaran market with the launch of the innovative, economical, and incredibly fuel efficient Leopard 47 Powercat. This new Powercat became an instant success and was quickly adopted as the premier charter model in The Moorings Power Yacht charter fleet. Soon after, the Leopard 39 Powercat was introduced to satisfy demand for a smaller Powercat with same features as her big sister. In 2013, the new Leopard 51 Powercat replaced the Leopard 47 Powercat, and has already become a triumph.
Leopard Catamarans has grown significantly over the past decade as demand for luxury catamarans has skyrocketed. What was once a small scale business unit of The Moorings has now grown into an internationally recognized brand representing high quality, performance, and a style all its own. Starting out as one office in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, Leopard Catamarans has grown globally in a short period of time and now boasts over 20 destinations worldwide including Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Scandinavia, South Africa, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Israel, India, and South America.
