S/V Bohemian is an Puerto Rico based 2009 Leopard 46 catamaran SOLD!!
We bought Bohemian in 2014 and sailed her from St. Lucia to the USVI’s. The 2009 is the first design year with the steps going directly from the cockpit to the helm. That was a go/no go factor for us. We have put a lot into this boat and did not intend to sell it. However, work and elderly parents’ needs dictate that we pass our boat to another owner.
We’ve lived aboard for about 8 months of the year for the past 3 seasons. Here are some of the upgrades and other points of maintenance:
We added three 250W Kyocera solar panels and replaced the three minimalist 4D house batteries with 4-8D AGM batteries. The battery charge is displayed on three separate digital readouts at the Nav station in the saloon. One panel is on the roof of the helm station but is situated on the starboard side of the roof so that you can still stand on the port half when necessary to access the boom and mainsail, and it doesn’t block the view of the mainsail from the helm.
Our MarineKinetix MK4+ wind generator provides additional charge on cloudy days and at night when it’s needed most. On a sunny day the solar fully charges the 4-8d AGM’s. The MK4+ automatically slows down when the batteries are full or in gale force winds so it doesn’t need to be nor should it be taken down when you leave the boat. There is a wind gen controller on the panel at the Nav station that indicates the incoming charge from the MK4+.
Most of the light bulbs have been replaced with LED bulbs. Huge impact.
The genset is rarely needed for charging batteries but it has been turned on for 20 minutes at least once a week to keep it active and heat up water for showers.
We added a 1000 watt continuous and 2000 watt peak inverter to charge computers, VoIP and cell phones, printer, tools, etc.
The original Raymarine C80 GPS map at the helm has been replaced by a Raymarine Hybrid Touch screen. The older C80 cannot “talk” to most of the current electronic equipment on the market but the new Raymarine touch screen hybrid is compatible with currently available add-ons.
The delta anchor that comes with the L46 seemed inadequate for certain types of conditions so a new Rocna 33kg (73lbs) anchor is now the primary anchor. It’s the largest size that comfortably fits in the cradle. We’ve been very happy with the Rocna.
The port engine was rebuilt by the Moorings prior to our purchase. We’ve only made minor changes to the engines which run just fine. The engines have been serviced on a regular basis by a mechanic in St Croix. We replaced the starter on the port side and purchased a second starter as a spare part. The engine odometers reportedly stopped working before we purchased the boat, although they seem to work from what I can tell. They were estimated at around 3400 hours at that time. We have used less than $500 of fuel in the past 3 years. The starboard engine shows 134 hours, the port shows 3829.6 hours. The Northern Lights generator shows 8580 hours.
The steering chain has been replaced and we have a spare on board.
We have added 200’ of heavy duty dock lines for use during hurricane season. In addition to the medium sized fenders the L46 comes with we’ve added 5 large fenders with covers for better protection.
The helm curtain zipper and clear plastic windows have been replaced with ones you can see through. The sails have been looked at by Wilson’s Cruzan Canvas in St Croix and any minor repairs have been made. They did the same with the mainsail cover and zipper which were repaired and replaced respectively.
Navy blue cockpit cushions have been added. The same material was also used to recover the bench seat and backing at the helm and on the cockpit stools. (see photo)
Sanding and fresh bottom paint as of June 2017.
There have been a number of other repairs. Here are a few: All marine toilet motors and other head parts have been replaced. Several of the hatch gaskets have been replaced and extra gasket material is on board. Both the water accumulator and fresh water pump were replaced. Refrigeration system parts have been replaced. The starboard sail drive was fully reconditioned. All winches have been disassembled, cleaned and lubricated in 2017. The air conditioning units have been recently serviced with a new controller, water pump and other parts as needed. New Perko hatch latches have been installed fore and aft. All hull and other topside surfaces have been buffed and polished in 2017.
