S/V Nomad is a 2015 Leopard 44 catamaran, for sale by owner. She is a 4-Cabin with the light interior. This was a Belize charter, so this is not a hurricane damaged boat. She is on the hard at Zimmerman Marine in Matthew, VA.  She has brand new Yanmar 39 HP engines with zero hours.

Nomad features upgraded electronics, as well as an upgraded dinghy winch and Mantus anchor. In 2023, she also got new Insinglass in the cockpit, as well all new running rigging.

Designed by the USA team of Gino Morrelli and Pete Melvin,the Leopard 44 is built in South Africa by Robertson and Caine. The Leopard 44 was “Boat of the Year” when introduced in 2011 with the judges positively commenting on performance, easy handling and the revolutionary forward cockpit.

The Leopard 44 features two cockpits, one fore and one aft with outside dining area protected by a functional hard-top bimini. Sailing the Leopard 44 is easy: both main and jib sheets lead to stoppers and self-tailing (electric) winches directly adjacent to the helm. The galley-up has ample storage and a huge drawer type fridge and freezer. No steps up or down anywhere on the salon level.

The Leopard 44 represents Robertson and Caine’s innovative developments with modern features while remaining committed to the tried and tested features that have made the Leopard line one of the most sought after brands of catamarans globally. The Leopard 44 features the well known “front door” allowing an abundance of ventilation and seating area forward; a great place to lounge or dine.
