The South African catamaran builder, Robertson & Cain, has a reputation for two things: building durable boats that get delivered on their own bottoms so they’re truly tested by the time they arrive on US shores, and having a close relationship with charter sister companies Moorings and Sunsail, that has made these cats very accessible throughout the world. Many of the Leopard models built in the last 10 years were designed by Gino Morrelli of Playstation and America’s Cup fame and are known for performance as well as durability, because nothing works harder than a boat in charter. Today, the company offers models from 39 to 58 feet with the largest making its debut in 2012. The 39-footer does double duty as a power and sail cat that is enjoying popularity due to its spacious deck and interior, as well as fuel-efficient and seakindly properties.
Built by Robertson and Caine, and designed by renowned architects Morrelli and Melvin, the Leopard 46 is a blue water cruising catamaran that combines spacious living accommodations, high quality fittings and great performance.
Inspired by the Leopard 62, the raised helm station is located in the hard top roof with open access to the cockpit and all controls lead aft, for excellent visibility and ease of manoeuvres.
The starboard hull is entirely dedicated to the owner, with a large private cabin, study area, separate head and shower room and attractive beech wood finishes throughout. The port hull accommodates two spacious guest cabins each with en suite head and separate shower. The signature walk-through access to the roomy cockpit and aft bathing platform connecting the two transoms, completes this exciting new model. (Also available with 4 cabins.)
The base price for the Leopard 46 is $549,000
