This Leopard 48 is operated and maintained by a professional team and has been chartered with a full-time Captain and crew. This award-winning Leopard 48 combines blue water performance and comfortable living including the large forward cockpit with direct access from the salon.

Other exterior features include a large and open aft cockpit and table along with a raised helm station providing excellent panoramic visibility. This 4-cabin version layout provides extensive interior space and incredible comfort that set a new standard for the modern cruising cat. We-Blew-In has never been in a named storm and is ready for new adventures.

The Leopard 48 is a boat that employs the latest in catamaran thinking to deliver a platform that is as fun as it is comfortable. It is no surprise that the Leopard 48 was voted 2013 CRUISING WORLD BEST MULTIHULL.

The Leopard 48’s hulls are vacuum-bagged with a balsa core to maximize rigidity and minimize weight. The boat’s shallow keels are filled with closed-cell polyurethane foam to prevent water ingress and increase buoyancy, and the bow and stern both have sealed bulkheads to keep the water out in the event of a collision. All in all, this is a boat built with bluewater passage making in mind.

Another Leopard feature is the large transverse passageway aft, which allows you to cross from one hull to the other or hoist the dinghy back into the boat’s davits without bumping into any of your passengers. Her single-spreader Sparcraft fractional rig is both simple and effective.

The bridge deck also has a forward-facing nav station to port and a large table and settees, Robertson and Caine has created a layout that is spacious, comfortable and extremely well ventilated.

I learned how to walk on a boat. I’ve cruised, raced and lived aboard in my youth. I too share your dream of perfect afternoon sails and secluded anchorages. I started as a yacht broker in 2000 and have had the opportunity to work with clients in the purchase and sale of almost every type of cruising catamaran on the water today. I have helped hundreds of clients purchase yachts new and used from 30’-77’ and have come across every type of situation and problem that may arise in a transaction.
