From the 360-degree visibility at the helm to the well protected fore and aft cockpits, the Leopard 48 is designed for a modern blue water lifestyle. Stepping on board the wide transoms, you are only 2 steps away from direct access to the cockpit and side decks.

The raised helm station offers exceptional visibility and is easily accessed from the cockpit and side deck. The standard electric winch and all lines led aft make shorthanded yacht control very manageable. From the helm seat, all sail handling and engine controls are within reach.

The Leopard 48 also offers comfortable seating for up to 3 people at the helm. The clear and uncluttered deck layout of the Leopard 48 is emphasised by the recessed deck hatches.

The sleek Leopard lines are easily recognised 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.
