|Leopard 45 - "Seabbatical" was purchased by her current owners in 2014. At the time of purchase, they spent two months at The Boat Works, Coomera, preparing her for a two year cruising dream to North Queensland and beyond.
New hardtop Bimini, clears and insect screens, new windows and new interior upholstery were just a few up-grades during the min re-fit. She was also converted to 240 volt, and added was a 1000 watt solar panels, new startup batteries, new hot water system, new stove, televisions, surround stereo, electric toilets and remote control Lewmar anchor winch.
The autopilot has a new auto guidance feature, AIS, radar and sonar completed the picture. Then the couple threw the lines and headed north.
They report that "Seabbatical" performed perfectly and looked after a relatively inexperienced crew who enjoyed her stability and her forgiving nature.
"We babied her by staying away from uncomfortable wind and big seas. "
"She cruised effortlessly at 6 knots under one engine using a measly 2 liters per hour, " they said.
The new Yanmar 4JH5E engines fitted in 2011 have only recorded 1950 hours and 1970 hours, they are quiet and efficient. Under sail she is graceful and was easily handled by the cruising couple.
At anchor is where this 2000 Leopard 45 shows off her creature comforts. A huge cockpit flows to a large galley and saloon lounge featuring large windows.
"Not having to run generators or engines to top up the battery is her best live-aboard feature - the solar runs the fridges, TV's and lights"
They describe the experience is like being on a deserted island for weeks! And is achieved with her new Stella 100 L per hour water maker - this proven blue water cruiser has four ensuited double cabins and makes entertaining a breeze.
