Shazam | 2012 Leopard 44

Road Town, VG

About

The Leopard 44 has modern features, whilst remaining committed to the tried and tested features that have made the Leopard line one of the most sought after brands of catamarans globally.

With an abundance of outdoor space and its generous sail plan, this catamaran is both luxurious and practical. The spacious four double cabin and four head layout plus large saloon and galley gives plenty of room for groups or families. Generous headroom throughout plus substantial storage capacity gives additional space for on board relaxation.

The Leopard 44 features the well known "front door" allowing an abundance of ventilation and seating area forward; a great place to lounge or dine. While a forward cockpit is conventional on the modern cruising catamaran, the Leopard 44 instinctively offers an integral hardtop bimini, protecting the forward and aft cockpit, while also creating a comfortable outdoor living space.

The aft cockpit is very comfortable with ample seating aft and to port. A large table accommodates a crowd and the aft seat tops cleverly rotate for sitting in two directions. The electric dinghy davits are push-button controlled. The extended stern steps flow naturally into each hull and offer easy access to the water and for boarding the dinghy. 

The upstairs helm station is accessed from starboard via a couple of steps. All sail controls are led to the helm station and are controlled with a nest of Spinlock clutches and three Lewmar winches.

Heading through the saloon doors, the interior is flooded with natural light and includes a large L-shaped galley to port, with two sinks, a three-burner stove and oven as well as a drawer-style pull-out fridge and freezer.

The electrical panel and compact stand up navigation station are aft to starboard. An L-shaped settee is forward to starboard and wraps around a huge table.         

Two cabins occupy each of the hulls. Each cabin includes a double berth and en suite head. There is a single berth all the way forward, and unless the bunk is needed it can be used as an excellent storage area.

For additional comfort this boat features generator and air conditioning.

Access to the two 39-horsepower Yanmar diesels with saildrives in soundproofed engine rooms is excellent through a watertight hatch, not just a fiberglass cover. Two fuel tanks combine to hold 185 gallons. 

Sailing the Leopard 44 is unlike sailing a normal catamaran. Not only is this boat good sailing up wind, but also steady downwind with limited roll. The 360° helm station gives complete control from one place.

It is easy to understand the popularity of the Leopard 44, especially as a family cruising boat. It’s solidly built, cleverly designed with an emphasis on privacy and comfort. It’s proven to be at home at sea or at anchor.

Your team delivered on every mark. You’ve got an amazing broker in Mark Wattrus and I’m confident you will have continued success moving forward together. He was available 24/7 whenever I had questions. We had a great initial visit on the boat and his marketing plan and photos were superb

I bought a yacht that I had never seen. I did this because I trusted my broker Andrew Holland. It was not an easy job for Andrew, as I am an experienced boat builder and owner of previous yachts, but work in West Africa. Imagine how hard it was to communicate what I was looking for. Andrew came up with exactly what I wanted. He dealt with time delays, all my questions at odd hours, and was there for the survey. He reported honestly and professionally. After buying the yacht, I arrived at the boat on a Sunday night, after dark, after travelling from West Africa to the Caribbean, and found it was better than expected. He never pulled punches and made me aware of shortfalls. I expected to spend my one month leave working on the boat, but actually spent less than one week, and was able to spend 3 weeks sailing – wonderful bonus.

Thank you Andrew for putting up with all my questions, all my worries and all my crazy out of the time zone concerns – you were totally professional, but also I know that if and when we meet up, it will be like a friend finally meeting. You are always welcome on Aseka.

Outstanding company with professional subject matter experts. If I were to buy or sell cruising sailboat, particularly a catamaran, Andrew would be my go to broker.

I have been sailing since I was a child and attended Massachusetts Maritime Academy. But when my wife and I began the process of purchasing an ocean cruising/racing catamaran, I realized that this is a world unto itself. Obviously, we needed to find someone knowledgeable to help us make an informed decision. More importantly, we needed someone honest and willing to put our interests before his or her own. I was lucky to work with Phil Berman at The Multihull Company. He repeatedly shunned the fast buck, choosing instead to work the long road to connect us with the “perfect boat”. I would be glad to recommend Phil and his company to anyone planning to purchase or sell a performance sailing machine.

— Eric Boutiette

Andrew Hodgdon was our broker when we bought our 2018 Lagoon 450F in Antigua in April 2922. He provided great service and was very attentive to our needs. We would highly recommend Andrew and the Multihull Company.
