|Leopard enthusiastically introduces the all new, agile, Leopard 48. This new catamaran, focused on blue water performance, speed, and luxurious comfortable living spaces, is a welcome addition to the award winning Leopard line. Like her predecessors, this yacht was expertly crafted and designed by the foremost yacht builders Robertson and Caine. Her updated style, open-plan layout, and design all bring a new edge to the line, while remaining consistent with the quality of all Leopard catamarans.
Like the award winning Leopard 44, the Leopard 48 features a large forward cockpit with direct access from the saloon, unique to the Leopard range. Other exterior bonuses include a large and open aft cockpit with cockpit table. A raised helm station, providing excellent panoramic visibility, allows for excellent blue water maneuverability.
