Why choose Leopard Catamaran

Why choose Leopard Catamaran

Owning a cruising catamaran for years is a dream to so many. Sailitalia is leader in Italy for sales, Ownership and management. The most frequently asked question is: “Why Leopard?” The team would like to share 15  of the most valuable points.

 

We offer not only the best equipped privately owned cruising catamarans available in the world but we also offer pre-owed catamarans coming out of various charter fleets, including our own sister company fleets of the The Moorings and Sunsail. 

 It is our goal to welcome you into the pride of catamaran ownership!

Evolving from over 40 years of customer feedback, Leopard Catamarans has pooled their expertise with builders Robertson and Caine to design today’s Leopard range: spacious, robust, performance-driven blue water cruising catamarans. More than 2,000 Leopard cats have now been delivered all over the globe.

 

Sailitalia will share with you below some of the unique qualities that make Leopard Catamarans the best choice for your cruising adventures. 

1. Leopard Catamarans are the only catamaran brand certified both in Europe and the Americas: NMMA Certified – ABYC Standards & CE Certified – CE Standards).

2. The first catamaran with stepped hulls to offer interior space without reducing performance. The anchoring system in placed mid-way on forward deck and concealed (no rust, no fouling of chain on hulls, no mud on forward deck).

3. The first catamaran to introduce a hardtop protecting the aft cockpit.

4. Innovative deck plan with all lines leading back to helm station for single-handed sailing.

5. Signature forward cockpit for better ventilation, improved visibility, and additional space forward to enjoy sunrise and privacy, the forward cockpit door is an amazing feature and provides the saloon and galley with excellent ventilation. 

6. Signature electrical davit system that simplifies dinghy and outboard motor lifting with no hydraulics (inboard electrical motors) that lower down and out, allowing full clearance of transoms and easy loading of dinghy onto platform.

7. Robust construction, well-balanced and honest boat in heavy weather. Safe and robust rig (rigid boom vang to prevent damage or injury). Well protected and secure helm station. The helm station is designed for short-handed sailing– all controls going back to helm station.

8. The visibility and traffic all the way through the boat; the communication from the helm station down and back to the social spaces; the safety and comfort of the cockpit, saloon and staterooms — all these things are addressed and implemented very, very well.

9. Large main saloon with easy access to and from the galley and the forward access door. Sliding door and windows in open position allow for full communication between main saloon and aft cockpit; in closed position underway or in cold/hot weather, allow inside dining in full protection.

10. Easy movement aft of the aft cockpit across the beam, and easy access to transoms, engine rooms and water tanks.

11. Helm station is part of the cockpit, allowing the helmsman to fully communicate with the aft cockpit and visually check entire aft cockpit and interior of the boat (friends, family, young children).

12. The innovative lounge on the Leopard 50 and Leopard 45 includes a sitting area, a sunbed, and a table.

13. Access to the lounge is provided by floating stairs leading up from the aft cockpit, without disrupting the helm station and the helm station remains well protected and integrated into the cockpit and the rest of the boat.

14. LED down lighting and concealed rope lighting creates your ideal atmosphere and Hardtop over forward cockpit with LED down lighting to “set the mood”.

15. Forward lounging cockpit with watertight saloon access door give additional space for socializing. Folding forward cockpit table and wrap around seating.

Those are just a few of the reasons that Leopard reigns supreme.
