Leopard Catamarans excitedly announces the new Leopard 40. This innovative and performance driven Leopard 40 is sure to excite anyone interested in a new catamaran in the 40 ft range.
The Leopard 40, like other Leopard models before her, is a product of South African boat builders Robertson and Caine and includes a unique, modern design thanks to experienced naval architects Simonis and Voogd as well as Robertson and Caine's design team. She resembles her predecessors in speed, agility, and blue-water performance, but her enhancements include an increased volume in the hulls and a design consistent with the rest of the Leopard range currently in production.
The Leopard 40’s interior design is unlike any Leopard before her. Her galley is located forward and the forward-facing settee and table are now located aft. This allows for a panoramic view with large sliding glass doors between the saloon and the aft cockpit. This arrangement promotes easy communication for guests and an open flow between the saloon and the aft cockpit, and a fusion of indoor and outdoor living space. In addition, the galley area includes a large forward-facing window and an access door to the forward platform of the boat. The access door enhances the open concept feel and easy navigation in and around the yacht. It also promotes ventilation throughout the interior.
Like the rest of the Leopard line, the new Leopard 40 includes a light blonde interior with a light, modern and airy feel.

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.
