S/V Ooga Chaka is a 2005 Leopard 40 Catamaran, for sale by owner. We are excited to present this all electric catamaran.

We are currently living on Ooga Chaka in the Caribbean and will continue to do so until the day she sells. 

During Ooga Chaka’s electric conversion we re-wired the entire boat (2021) and upgraded ALL electrical systems (2021)….nav, fridge, pumps, induction stove…everything!

Ooga Chaka is an older boat and has some cosmetic considerations but her foundation is strong with new standing rigging (2021) and new sails (2023)…she is ready for adventure and to provide a comfortable home for your life on the water.

She is a 4 cabin 2 head layout with brand new macerating toilets, holding tanks and pipes (2024). We love the 4 cabin layout allowing space for the entire family.

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.

Ooga Chaka is ready to cruise when you are! She is a must see!
