This well appointed and cared for Leopard 40 is located in the South Pacific tropical waters of Fiji. Owned by an Australian couple and an Australian registered vessel they have found the perfect location for an easy get away with very convenient and cheap flights from the East Coast of Australia to their tropical floating holiday house on the water.

This craft has a very open design with a beautiful balance of indoor and outdoor living space. The cockpit is a walk through layout with that flows freely into the modern and extremely well appointed galley up arrangement with the choice of dinning inside in the saloon or alfresco in the cockpit area.

This is a four cabin layout that presents is exceptional condition for her age which show the level of care the owners have kept and managed this fine craft. It features a head and shower in each hull along with 2 large cabins aft and 2 large V berth doubles up forward. Plenty of room for storage of all the long term cruising requirements and additional gear. This Leopard 40 are renowned for their superior load carrying ability but they are no slouch when it comes to sailing as featured in "Sail" magazine

SAIL Magzine excerpt...

"On a close reach in 12 to 15 knots of breeze and a slight chop, the boat hit 10 knots in a short-lived gust and consistently sat in the 8-to-9-knot range. I wasn't constantly tweaking sails or even concentrating on boat speed. The boat tacked through 80 degrees and, unlike many cruising cats I've experienced, the helm had some feel. We logged similar speeds on other points of sail, and the boat tracked beautifully, feeling light and maneuverable. Granted, this was a new boat that hadn't been weighed down with cruising gear, but the numbers are testament to the design's potential. "

"Pete Melvin, who was on board for the test, said, "This 40-footer is 4,000 pounds lighter than the Leopard 38 it's replacing. " Yes, 2 tons lighter and 2 feet longer. The hulls and interior furniture have been made lighter, without sacrificing strength or stiffness, by using high-quality balsa core and vacuum-bagging. Melvin also explained the importance of the bridge deck underbody. "We designed at least 3 feet of bridge deck clearance to minimize slap. The lighter hull will ride over the waves better, and the sharp bows and clean underbody profile minimize drag. "

Don't miss this opportunity in presenting an offer on the well appointed ready to cruise away Leopard 40. We have other sisterships available for inspection prior to booking a trip to Fiji.
