This Boat Owner requires financial settlement only ... trades will not be considered!!

S/V TIGER is an exceptionally maintained 1998 Leopard 45 catamaran. TIGER has been continually updated, including a refit to lengthen her hulls to add stability and speed, to incorporate a hardtop, and to reflect the newer Leopard design with reinforced dinghy davits and back bench. TIGER received new standing rigging in 2017.

You will be impressed with her speed and meticulously-kept interior. The Leopard 45 has received numerous accolades since the model’s introduction due to her open and spacious layout, easy handling, functional galley-up layout, four spacious staterooms with double-size berths and generous headroom throughout. All of the systems are very simple to operate and easily accessed. Comfortably cruise at 8 knots or pick up speed with her powerful twin 50hp Yanmar diesel engines. Her shallow 4' 1" draft is ideal for reaching secluded anchorages and her layout is perfect for entertaining guests.

The high quality interior is a tasteful blend of wood; fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) and Corian. The cabin sole is durable, low maintenance teak and holly composite floor panels. You can easily seat 8 guests for dinner at the fixed cockpit table. The helmsman seat is strategically located to allow for a 360 degree view around the boat under a custom hard top.

TIGER is ready for off-the-grid travel, with 975 watts of solar, 1080 amp battery bank, Xantrex inverter, and 12V Spectra Cape Horn watermaker. Electronics suite includes autopilot, AIS transceiver, and radar. The 50-hp Yanmar engines were rebuilt in 2014 and have fewer than 900 hours on each. The shaft drive engines are housed in spacious engine rooms to simplify remote maintenance.

Living is comfortable for a family, with four cabins and four ensuite heads, and the starboard aft head has a washing machine in lieu of a toilet. The galley features a 3-burner stainless steel stove and large oven, Corian countertops, three refrigerators, and a full-size trash can. The helm station is located where the helmsman can always be part of the family conversation in the cockpit. The salon has a flat screen smart TV and DVD player, as well as a WiFi extender and a dedicated chart table. TIGER also has a new (2018) West Marine 11’ dinghy.

Our family is currently in the Eastern Caribbean, cruising toward Florida. TIGER is available for sale now. She can be seen (and delivered) anywhere in the Caribbean/US East Coast between now and July 1, and will be available in Florida in July.
