S/V Mariposa V is a Panama based 2005 Leopard 40 catamaran. Should you fly to Panama and buy our boat, we’ll defray the cost of travel up to $1000 USD, by deducting your expenses from the final purchase price. Fair enough?

Designed by Morrelli & Melvin built by Robertson & Caine, this model Leopard was voted catamaran of the year. It maximizes comfortable living space, storage, while ensuring safety, comfort, and good cruising speeds. Built in Cape Town, South Africa, the 40 features 4 spacious double cabins, with 2 heads and full, separately enclosed showers, plus two single berths in the forward bows.

This Leopard 40 is a fast boat and is easy to maneuver when single-handed. Her fine entry bows allow the Leopard 40 to tack under mainsail alone in less than 8 knots of wind. Her winches are ingeniously placed near the helm for easy handling.

The Galley is practical with large cabinets for storage and a countertop which facilitates the passage of dishes at the table in the cockpit. Dining accommodates eight people sitting comfortably, while leaving free access to the cockpit. The cockpit transitions to aft steps to the water.

These boats are light and fast. The ligher weight allows her to ride easily over waves and her sharp bows and clean underwater profile cut cleanly as well as minimize drag. Visibility is excellent over the coach roof and a sliding door in the hard cockpit bimini makes it easy to keep track of sail shape.

The 4 cabin, 2 head layout is perfect for a couple or a family of 4 to 6. Big enough to fit everyone, but not so huge as to be a handful for a small crew. Plus, she sails pretty quickly, and is particularly well set up to sail short-handed in all conditions.She has a modern, bright, galley-up design with panoramic views, Corian work surfaces and a very spacious saloon. A large bathing platform with direct access to the cockpit, complete electronics and fuel efficient 40 HP engines, giving great performance under power, as well as sail.

She is in great condition. A 2005 model and one of the last built. A rare model on the market. She has been lovingly cared for and well maintained and it shows very well.

Complete new bottom paint and hull polished, Sail drives inspected and all seals renewed in Aug 2018. New Genoa Jan 2019, new electronics 2017, and lots of cosmetic. All running rigging inspected and tuned Feb 2019. Mariposa V is ready to begin cruising any ocean with her new owner right now, and is currently located in Linton Bay Marina, Panama. We’re willing to discuss a delivery to US ports.
