Overview

Leopard 46 Catamaran

Robertson and Caine 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 catamaran industry's 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.

Classic cherry wood finishes and articulated solid wood trim define the interior of the Leopard 48, providing both warmth and practicality. The galley is conveniently located between the outdoor and indoor living spaces with easy access to the helm, aft cockpit, saloon and forward cockpit.

 

From your chosen layout, the option list offers a wide variety of cruising gear and amenities to suit your family's cruising and live aboard needs.

With many unique features, the Leopard 48 sets a new standard in the world of cruising catamarans. Overall, the Leopard 48 holds nothing back in its pursuit to excel in all areas. Its sleek style, comfort, space, blue water sailing capabilities and unique innovative features, combine to create a catamaran that fits right into the Leopard family.

This stunning catamaran recently made its debut at the United States Sailboat Show in Annapolis, Maryland, and was nominated for both SAIL Magazines Best Boats 2013 award, and Cruising World's 2013 Boat of the Year award.

Sailing

Leopard 46 Catamaran

The classic Leopard lines are easily recognized in the Leopard 48's sleek profile. From the 360 degrees visibility from the helm to the well protected fore and aft cockpit, the Leopard 48 is designed for a modern blue water life style.

Stepping onboard the wide transoms, you are only 2 steps away from direct access to the cockpit and side decks. From the first Leopard catamaran that was launched, easy access in and out of the water has been an important feature; the Leopard 48 continues this philosophy.

The Leopard 48 creates versatile living space in the aft cockpit and aft deck, the
adjustable seat back transforms from usable cockpit table seating to aft deck lounging
space, with its pivoting bolstered backrest.

The raised helm-station offers exceptional visibility and is easily accessed from the cockpit and side deck. The helm seat is well protected from the elements by the hardtop. The standard electric winch and lines led aft make short-handed yacht control very manageable.

From the helm seat, all sail handling and engine controls are within arm's length.
The Leopard 48 also offers comfortable seating for up to 3 people at the helm.

Just like the Leopard 58 and the award winning Leopard 44, the Leopard 48 features the innovative forward cockpit with direct access to the saloon and fore deck. Aft cockpit, saloon / galley and forward cockpit are all on the same level, making it very easy to move around the yacht while at anchor or at sea.

The continuous hard top provides a stable platform for access to the mast and boom, and can accommodate a large array of solar panels. The clear and uncluttered deck layout of the Leopard 48 is emphasized by the recessed deck hatches.

The sleek Leopard lines are easily recognized by the large teardrop shaped saloon and hull side windows, giving this yacht a very modern look and a source of organic light in the saloon and cabins.

The open galley with Corian countertops and standard stainless steel appliances blends effortlessly into the saloon, forward cockpit and aft-cockpit. The galley has deep side by side double sinks, Vitrifrigo two drawer front opening fridge and freezer and a Force 10 gas range with three burner stove top and oven / broiler.


Extensive countertop space includes a raised bar and separate prep station above the fridge / freezer, making the galley the social hub of the yacht. There is plenty of over and under cabinet space for a weekend sail or a trip around the world. The headroom is a comfortable 6'5 in the saloon. The soft LED overhead lighting, cherry wood finishes with real wood trim and flood lighting creates the perfect ambiance.

With the option of a 3 or 4 cabin layout, the large cabins in the Leopard 48 set a new standard in comfort.

Each interior design offers both comfort and practicality. Austrian Walnut laminate flooring and cherry finishes with solid wood articulated trim give a luxurious feeling inside the hulls, and all heads are ensuite with separate stall showers.

The forward facing navigation station can accommodate a full array of electronics and engine controls, while offering additional storage space under the seat. The spacious interior dining area can seat up to 8 guests comfortably and the dining table can be converted to an optional double berth or coffee table.

The starboard hull is entirely dedicated to the owner's suite in the 3 cabin layout. The walk around center line queen sized bed allows for easy side access.

With a comfortable couch, or optional storage unit, there is plenty of storage space in the passage way.
