Leopard Catamarans' Leopard 48Leopard Catamarans Launches the Newest Member of the Leopard Range:  The Leopard 48

 

CLEARWATER, FL – Following on the heels of the Leopard 58, Leopard announces another exciting addition to the award winning line of Leopard Catamarans, with the all new Leopard 48! The Leopard 48 (Moorings 4800), built by the award winning builders at Robertson and Caine, follows in the footsteps of the most popular Leopard model to-date, the Leopard 46. What sets the 48 apart is its spacious interior, the large forward cockpit with direct access to the saloon, and an increased amount of outdoor living space. This stunning catamaran recently made its debut at the United States Sailboat Show in Annapolis, Maryland, and was nominated for both SAIL Magazines Best Boats 2013 award, and Cruising World’s 2013 Boat of the Year award.

Keeping in fashion with the entire Leopard line, the Leopard 48 focuses on blue water performance, speed, and luxurious comfortable living spaces. The interior of the Leopard 48 features large wrap around windows with gorgeous panoramic views and an abundance of natural light. Cherry wood laminate finishes and a solid wood trim line the interior of the Leopard 48, providing both beauty and practicality. In addition to this, the modern galley comes equipped with high-end appliances and ample prepping space. This catamaran also boasts a plush interior with plenty of lounge space, making sailing not only fun but also comfortable.

The 48’s intelligent design also comes with a multitude of special features and available upgrades. She features a 3 cabin-3 head and 4 cabin-4 head layout. The three cabin layout includes two cabins in the port hull, leaving the starboard hull entirely dedicated to the owners’ suite, complete with work station and large private washroom.

The Leopard 48 prides itself on its beautiful exterior which exhibits multiple outdoor living spaces. Like the award winning Leopard 44, the Leopard 48 features a large forward cockpit with direct access to the saloon. The forward cockpit offers increased visibility, ventilation, and a significant new approach on adding increased living space in an ergonomic and safe design feature. The Leopard 48 also includes a large aft cockpit with outdoor dining area, and a raised helm station providing excellent panoramic visibility allowing for excellent blue water maneuverability.

Overall, this exciting yacht promises to impress! Her innovative design, increased outdoor living space, and her excellent blue water capabilities make for a very exciting yacht. Leopard Catamarans is thrilled to welcome the Leopard 48 as the newest addition to the award winning line of Leopard Catamarans.
