S/V Kalou is a Malaysia based 2010 Leopard 38 Catamaran for Sale by Owner. This performance driven Leopard 38 is at the heart of the Leopard line. With her generous sail plan and stepped hull design, this yacht provides excellent performance.
This boat features 800 watts of Solar panels and full Air conditioning. On deck, the space is well thought out and useable; from the large transoms to the open and spacious aft, side and forward decks, getting around this yacht is easy and safe. The hardtop bimini over the cockpit provides superior protection from the elements and also offers a stable working platform.
The boat has 4 cabins and 2 heads and the galley is up in the saloon. The deck layout is clear and the mainsheet traveller runs on an arch over the transom giving unimpeded access to the water via a wide aft bathing platform. The transom arch also serves to support the aft end of the bimini and to carry the dinghy. A large overhang shades the forward saloon windows while providing an easy and secure step to the saloon roof.
This is a beautiful, modern, blue water, live-aboard cruiser for sale. This Leopard 38ft is a delight to live on, with four generous double cabins, an awesome indoor entertaining zone which flows nicely to a comfortable, sheltered outdoor dining for 8 people, plus generous flat lounging space around the trampoline.
Nimble, swift and responsive accurately describe the Leopard 38. This is a classic design and a benchmark for the next generation of cruising cats. Central winch pod, large transom, stepped hulls and great sailing performance are key words in describing this model.
Kalou has been meticulously maintained, and was extensively upgraded and modernised in 2021. She has crossed the Indian ocean, cruised all around Asia, and been a very comfortable home for our family for over 4 years. Currently located in Straits Quay Marina, Penang Island, Malaysia.
