S/V Buying Time is a 2011 Leopard 44 catamaran for sale by owner. The Leopard 44, with it’s additional forward cockpit, is at the forefront of modern catamaran design. In addition, the boat offers an integral hardtop bimini, protecting both the forward and aft cockpit, while also creating a comfortable, and enjoyable additional living space. A protected raised helm is featured, making this boat easy to handle.

She has 4 double cabins, with the fore cabins containing and additional single birth in each forepeak, a fully equipped galley with fridge, all necessary equipment and is ready to go.

These boats are the latest design from Robertson and Caine who also include deep, narrow groove hulls which enable the catamaran to sail as close to the wind as many a monohull. If you’ve ever sailed one of these excellent Leopard 44’s you’ll know brilliantly they handle, if not, well.. you’re in for treat. Of course, it goes without saying that her shallow draft provides great access to anchorages too shallow for a monohull. 

The Leopard 44 represents the new generation of cruising catamarans built by Robertson and Caine which focuses on innovation, performance, and comfort. With clever blending of the salon living space with both the forward and aft cockpits results in the outdoor spaces totally integrated, becoming a true extension of the salon. 

She Sleeps 12 people. 2 each in aft cabin. 3 each in double and single berth forward cabins and 2 in convertible salon. 4 heads, 5 showers (1 at transom). Of course a fully equipped galley. The interior décor is cherrywood laminates with white panels and light-colored upholstery. 

Leopard sailing catamarans are known for their unique blend of comfort, safety, and speed. This is the 4 cabin, 4 head, front cockpit model making this spacious vessel the perfect cruising catamaran.

The protected helm, back deck enclosures, new outdoor cushions, two 16,000 btu AC units, a 6 kW Northern Lights diesel generator, twin Yanmar 39hp engines, 1200 watts of solar, electric wrench, windlass, and electric davits add to the comfort and ease of living aboard.

Owners spent over $70,000 on servicing and updates in October 2021, making this a truly turn-key vessel. Owners have spent the past 9 months cruising the Bahamas and the east coast.
