Catamaran For Sale -- Leopard 45 (Florida)

Asking: $99,000,000 (USD) Location: Fort Lauderdale, FL (Florida)
Foo Fighter is a Fort Lauderdale, FL based 2021 Leopard 45 Catamaran For Sale By Owner
This catamaran owner requires financial settlement only. Trades will not be considered.

S/V Double Feature is a 2021 Leopard 45 Catamaran For Sale By Owner based in Fort Lauderdale, FL.  This Leopard 45 is an Owners’ Version with 3 cabins and 3 heads.

I knew this was my last sailboat so no expense was spared.  This Leopard 45 is better than new, ready for the next owner’s total, unequaled enjoyment!  Leopard Catamarans and Just Catamarans agree, Double Feature is the most optioned Leopard 45 that ever existed. The typical post sale work on a Leopard 45 is two weeks.  Double Feature has so many upgrades and added features that it took three months!

Note, the reason for this sale after only 18 months, is my new boat, a Leopard 53′ Power Cat, is arriving MUCH sooner than expected. January!  Therefore this must sell.

The Design Goal was the Safety and Convenience of never having to leave the helm. Single-handing control of everything.  S/V Double Feature was purchased with all options better installed at the factory in addition to many Post-Sale additions.  Please see the Upgrades list below for highlights as well as the Inventory List below.

It will be very helpful to see the Double Feature Video for many details that are easy to see and difficult to put into writing.
