– Revealing the Entire Leopard Range –
The Purr-fect Feline Glitter
The entire Leopard Catamaran range of Sail and Power Catamarans will be available for personal viewing by appointment throughout 2023.
Futuristic designs which offer superior performance, generous spaces, and rugged dependability.
It’s easy to see why the Leopard Catamaran brand is so popular the world over. Serious boaties are drawn to the outstanding performance characteristics, while relative newcomers to boating admire the ease of handling, low maintenance, the large entertainment and accommodation spaces on offer.
Every one of the Leopard sail and power models offer the unique walk-through access to the foredeck, making anchoring a breeze, while also providing an extra exterior entertainment space adjacent to the saloon.
Evolving from 50 years of customer feedback, Leopard Catamarans has pooled their expertise with builders Robertson and Caine and Naval Architects Simonis Voogd to design today’s Leopard range: spacious, robust, performance-driven blue water cruising catamarans. Leopard catamarans are the only catamaran brand certified both in Europe and the Americas (NMMA Certified – ABYC Standards & CE Certified – CE Standards). As the worldwide distributor, we’re proud to say that over 2,500+ Leopard cats have now been delivered all over the globe.
The entire Leopard Catamaran range of Sail and Power Catamarans will be on display at the Sydney International Boat Show, August 2-6, 2022.
Leopard Sailing Catamarans Key Features
• Stepped hulls and powerful rig, with overlapping genoa for superior performance
• Proven robust design and superior build materials
• Best compromise between interior and exterior volume
• Protected helm station designed for offshore single-handed sailing
• Forward access for models over 42’ with lounge for additional socialising area
• Super comfortable underway and at anchor
• Performance options for rig and sails
• All three Leopard sailing catamarans offer a powerful sail plan, with an optimized aspect ratio allowing more efficiency, easier trimming, better air flow in the slot between the main and headsail which gives good sailing speeds in lighter breezes, which in turn minimizes the use of the motors.
Leopard Power Catamaran range key features
• Efficient design for best combination of interior volume, top speed and fuel consumption
• Robust build for blue water operation
• Spacious and comfortable flybridge with hard-top
• Forward saloon door for superior ventilation, visibility forward and access to foredeck
• Additional interior helm station on the main deck
• Ultra-modern design inside and out
• Easy to manoeuvre for single-handed operation
• World leader in recreational power catamarans
> From a performance standpoint, both the L46 PC and the L53 PC have efficient hulls with vertical stems to maximize waterline length, efficient running gear with optimised propeller angle. Cruising at 18kts and with a top speed of 24kts, this configuration gives lower consumption for less horsepower and greater range than any other power catamaran. The reliable and simple systems perform equally well in all conditions, whether underway on smooth sheltered waterways or out in the wide blue ocean.
Leopard 42 Sailing Catamaran
The exterior styling has adapted to the modern appearance of the award-winning Leopard 50, which features continuous hull side windows, a continuous hardtop, and what has quickly become our signature, an upper-lounge area. With modern contrasts, indirect lighting, and classy finishes, the Leopard 42 brings more luxury and elegance to the Leopard sailboat range. All bunks are now island berths that allow access from both sides. With windows everywhere space permitted, the natural light is amplified. Available in three cabin/ three heads and four cabin/ four heads, all cabins include their own private en-suite heads. All heads include their own designated shower area; a feature not currently found on catamarans in this size range. In the saloon, we have added a generous skylight, as well and an additional window in the aft starboard corner facing the helm seat. The forward-facing L-shaped galley is sure to entice any chef! The Leopard 42 has the unmistakable DNA of a Leopard catamaran with plenty of new technology and building techniques used to make it a magnificent ocean-going yacht with a feel of space, comfort and performance only previously found in significantly larger models.

Leopard 45 Sailing Catamaran
For catamaran aficionados looking for additional space for family and friends, without sacrificing performance, the Leopard 45 is the ideal choice. A best seller since her launch in 2017, both the interior and exterior styling has evolved and we are excited to announce that we are now offering the innovative hardtop lounge on the Leopard 45. This lounge feature first launched on the award-winning Leopard 50 and like her big sister, the lounge on the Leopard 45 includes a seating area, a sunbed, and a table. Access to the lounge is provided by floating stairs leading up from the aft cockpit, without disrupting the helm station. The helm station remains well protected, and integrated into the cockpit and the rest of the boat. Available in a three or four cabin layout, the Leopard 45 offers the perfect entertainment package with increased aft area with new layout, ergonomically designed open plan saloon and galley, larger forward cockpit, and more onboard area. She’s sleek and nimble, yet comfortable. She incorporates a heritage of Leopards spanning 25 years of production expertise.

Leopard 50 Sailing Catamaran
The Leopard 50 has the ideal layout for anyone looking for more indoor and outdoor living space as she comes equipped with a flybridge that includes a lounge area, table, sunbed and optional exterior speakers and shade awning. Access is direct and provided by floating stairs leading up from the side deck. The lounge of the Leopard 50 has the advantage a traditional flybridge while at the same time keeping the helm station well protected behind the bulkhead, well protected by a dedicated hard top, and with direct access and visibility into the aft cockpit. Another important distinction compared to similar sailboat flybridge configurations is that while under sail, passengers can move about the flybridge with ample headroom and never worry about interference from the boom. The flybridge is also designed to maintain contact with the helm station, an important feature found on all Leopard catamarans. The L50 can be equipped with the optional electrically operated dinghy launch/retrieval platform. The entire exterior styling of the Leopard 50 has also been revamped to give the hull a more sophisticated look. In addition to the exterior options, the interior offers multiple layout configuration with three, four or five cabins, utility room for live aboard and an extensive options list.

Leopard 46 Power Catamaran
The new Leopard 46 powercat brings you all the style, luxury, outdoor living spaces, and home-away-from-home accommodations and comfort of her big sister. The Leopard 46 Powercat comes in a three or four-cabin layout. The three-cabin owner’s suite boasts a large walk-in closet, desk, and a double vanity. Forward VIP guest cabins offer spacious, island berths and ensuite heads. Accommodations have been enhanced to make you feel at-home with new soft furnishings, very comfortable beds and great use of space. The outside cockpit areas are an extension of the interior, all uniting to create a feeling of space and airiness. The forward end of the saloon opens onto a sunny lounging area, complete with adjustable recliners. The aft cockpit is a simple, well-proportioned U-shaped settee with a large dining table sized to seat eight comfortably. The flybridge adds a whole alternative seating area and can be used while underway or as an elevated position to enjoy sundowners or even a light meal at anchor. The main helm station is situated in the flybridge area, and provides a large comfortable seating position, with a commanding all-round view. The flybridge space is protected by a composite-moulded hardtop, which has a newly incorporated ‘spoiler’ along its aft end to reduce excessive turbulence from entering the aft flybridge sundeck when underway Accommodations have been enhanced to make you feel at-home with new soft furnishings, very comfortable beds and great use of space. The Leopard 46 powercat comes in a three or four-cabin layout. The three-cabin owner’s suite boasts large walk-in closet, desk, and a double vanity. Forward VIP guest cabins offer spacious, island berths and en-suite heads. As with her bigger sister the L53PC, all major engineering and electrical systems are housed in the L46PC’s engine rooms. With the engines located outside and aft of the accommodation areas, engine noise is substantially reduced, and engine room odours are eliminated. The L46PC can be equipped with the optional electrically operated dinghy launch/retrieval platform.

Leopard 53 Power Catamaran
The L53PC is designed to more than satisfy existing Powercat aficionados, while also appealing to the more traditional monohull motor yacht market. With its contemporary, re-imagined interior spaces, generous outdoor entertaining areas and engines now located aft of the cabins with access via large hatches located on the rear deck, the L53 Powercat makes a strong statement of visual and functional performance on multiple levels. Add in ease of operation and maintenance, along with up to 50% greater fuel efficiency than her monohull motor yacht counterparts, and the L53 Powercat is already winning a dedicated army of new fans. The design of this new boat maintains the traditional Leopard hull’s narrow entry at the bows with big volume stepped hulls above the waterline resulting in incredible space down below, as well as unmatched range at cruising speed. With a maximum range in excess of 3,000 kilometres, no other type of motor yacht can compete on the speed, range, fuel efficiency equation. This boat can reach a top speed of 25kts and cruise comfortably at 17.5kts. This performance will certainly appeal to the more time-poor boaties, who have limited time to enjoy their downtime. With this sparkling performance, the whole family can travel faster and further, reaching destinations not usually on their radar … The new layout is eminently practical and makes perfect sense. On the main level, retractable sliding glass doors lead from the aft cockpit to the galley making an appealing indoor/outdoor transition. The galley is equipped with the latest appliances and refrigeration is domestic sized for those long periods aboard. The main saloon is set up with an L-shaped lounge to port and a two-person settee to starboard. Cruising pleasure is enhanced with the option of adding an interior navigation station. The flow is seamless with access to the foredeck via the forward saloon door. The L53 powercat is offered in three or four cabin layouts, with the three-cabin owner’s version providing a comfortable and spacious ambiance, especially with the large walk around bed, a walk-in closet and double vanity.
The L53PC boasts separate engine rooms, completely sealed off from the accommodation spaces, with access via large deck hatches in the cockpit. All major engineering and electrical systems are housed in the engine rooms. With the engines located outside and aft of the accommodation areas, engine noise is substantially reduced, and engine room odours are eliminated. The L53PC can be equipped with the optional electrically operated dinghy launch/retrieval platform. While the Leopard range of catamarans has been developed, tweaked and optimised over more than two decades to meet increasingly higher expectations, there’s no doubt that the all-new L53 powercat will open up a whole new world of possibilities when it comes to challenging the status quo.
