S/V Dugga Boy is a Fort Pierce based 2008 Leopard 46 Owners Version Catamaran For Sale By Owner
This catamaran owner requires financial settlement only. No trades.

S/V Dugga Boy is one of the very first Owner’s Version Leopard 46 to be built with access to the helm from inside the cockpit.

People often ask us what we like best about the L46. While there are many things we like about this boat, the top 4 would be ease of sailing, excellent layout, voluminous storage and speed.

Easy of Sailing: with a sloop rig, 2 large winches at the helm (one is electric) and 5 lines led aft (main halyard, mainsheet, genoa sheets and furling line) the L46 is a very simple and forgiving boat to sail.

Massive Storage: as full time liveaboard owners, everything we need is on board…6 months of food, clothing, toys (fishing & diving gear, kayak, etc.), spare parts & supplies, tools & equipment, many appliances, etc. Yet there is still room to spare in our storage areas. Heck, we even have a large hanging lock dedicated just for our shopping bags LOL!

Spacious Layout: with the large sliding doors open, the salon and cockpit become one large living area. The U-shaped galley-up is excellent for preparing large meals, baking breads & desserts and entertaining large crowds. The owner’s hull is a living area unto itself with 12V air conditioning (runs all night on 15% of house batteries), a sliding door to close off the hull, a sofa for lounging and a huge ensuite head with large walk-in shower. Air flow is excellent throughout the boat with 13 overhead hatches, 10 opening ports and a large sliding glass door.

Speed: This is a cruising catamaran, not a performance cat. But make no mistake, with narrower hulls below the waterline, a generous sail plan, and the right wind, this boat can sail all day at 8.5 kts to 9.5 kts. And that’s with fixed blade props! We joke that we give ourselves a 1.5 kts handicap for having fixed blades. An example: When tropical storm Bret was bearing down on the Antilles in June 2023, we made the decision to run non-stop from northern Dominica to Carriacou. We completed this passage, nearly 200 nm, in under 24 hours.

It’s no surprise that the L46 has such a great reputation as one of the best all-around cruising catamarans ever built.

As full time liveaboard owners, we have installed or upgraded many of the systems on the boat over the past 3 years. A complete list of new equipment/systems, upgrades, repairs and maintenance can be provided to serious buyers.
