Leopard is known for the “front door”, allowing the foredeck to be accessed through the salon. Opening the front door and sliding the rear windows open. allows the ocean breezes to flow generously when the reverse cycle dual air conditioners aren’t needed. The owner’s suite has a queen-sized bed and a very roomy master bath with a separate shower.

Both port and starboard heads are electric, with fresh water flushing, which eliminates any odors. The port hull features two staterooms with closets and under-bed storage. The galley and salon have an abundant amount of room to move freely. You’ll feel right at home when preparing meals in the spacious galley. The side-by-side refrigerator/freezer is brand new.

In 2004, Leopard partnered with designers Morelli & Melvin for their Leopard 40 model. Between 2004 and 2009, Leopard produced 136 Leopard 40s before replacing it with the Leopard 39. Then, in 2014, Leopard engaged with Simonis Voogd Design to launch a newer Leopard 40 model that is still in production today with over 210 vessels produced.

The Leopard 40, a product of South African boat builders Robertson & Caine, features a unique, modern design thanks to experienced naval architects Simonis and Voogd as well as Robertson & Caine’s design team. She resembles her predecessors in speed, agility, and blue-water performance, but her enhancements include an increased hull volume and an innovative interior layout.

Beginning in 1997, Leopard has produced over 21 power and sailing catamaran models. With sizes to fit any need or budget, their sailing catamaran line ranges from a compact 38-footers to a luxurious 62-footer.

Leopard Catamarans of South Africa was founded by builders John Robertson and Jerry Caine in 2000– a partnership that has been sustained since 1991. At the time, their catamarans were designed and built primarily for charter companies Sunsail and The Moorings. With over 1,500 vessels catamarans built, Leopard has established itself a leader in the production catamaran market both for private and charter use.

S/V Untethered is a perfect choice for sailing getaways or even a liveaboard. Schedule an appointment today for a private viewing.
