This Leopard 47 is a tried and tested open water power cat and has a reputation as a tough cruiser. She is equipped with the displacement required to carry endless cruising gear and maintain its waterline. As a multi-hull, she carries all the benefits of strength, stability, and open space. A collaboration between South African boatbuilder Robertson and Caine and California sail- and power-catamaran designers Morelli & Melvin, the 47 is a design that reflects many innovations.
The Cummins 150’s, offer high reliability and efficiency, especially in the 12-15 knot cruising speed. If you chose to cruise at maximum fuel efficiency, you can run on just one engine at half-throttle (2000 rpm), which gives an economic 8 to 9 knots, perfect for crossing oceans.
At this speed, you’re only using 8-12 L/H (dependent on load and sea state), which gives you a range of roughly 1000 nautical miles. This boat is stable and comfortable, well suited for those looking to make the jump from sailing to power, or those looking for a more efficient power boat.
This 3 cabin Owners Version features a wide beam hull, which offers generous space for both living areas and storage. The starboard hull is very open and features a study/lounge area and a huge forward head/shower. Large windows in the main salon offer plenty of natural light, with an aft galley and table seating forwards. There is a full-sized nav station starboard forward, and the option to fit a second internal helm here.
The side decks are extremely wide for a yacht this size, with a solid deck between the bows giving immense floor space, and a high stainless tube guard rail providing safety whilst underway. Her flybridge is a game-changer, and becomes the living area giving the crew a commanding view of your surroundings perfect for socializing with your guests while you navigate new anchorages.
