2010 Leopard 46

Whangarei, NZ


The Leopard 46 has the genes of a racer. It's built in South Africa by Robertson and Caine and was designed by Gino Morelli and Pete Melvin, who drew the record-breaking maxi-catamaran PlayStation. But make no mistake-this 46-footer's also designed to cruise in comfort.

The Leopard 46 is a striking boat, from the first glimpse of the high, almost-plumb bows to the streamlined, louvered house and the rakish transoms. The hulls are narrow at the waterline-skinny is faster than wide-and have a very fine entry, then flare sharply to a chine just above the water for good interior volume and reserve buoyancy for sailing in a seaway.

The slippery hulls and tall sail plan provide boat speed almost equal to the wind speed at a time when most cruisers would have the engines going in those conditions. Cracked off the breeze the Leopard 46 makes fast passages easily.

The Leopard 46 is widely renowned as what may be the most robust and enduring model to come out of the Robertson and Caine yard. The hulls are of GRP construction with balsa core for strength, stiffness and insulation using high quality materials.

The Leopard 46, in addtion to being a "sail" boat provides great safety, security and comfort offshore in bad weather. Ask a Leopard 46 Owner!!

This well-maintained and equipped example has demonstrated its capabilities as both an ocean passage maker and a coastal and island cruiser. Last cruising season it took its owners on a Pacific circuit from New Zealand to the warm waters of Fiji and New Caledonia before returning to New Zealand where it had been cruising for the previous two years. Saltheart 2 is equipped with extras like an Iridium Go satellite comms system, and RescueMe PLBs and MOB devices to provide extra peace of mind on the water.

Saltheart 2 was built with four cabins, the current owners had the port forward cabin professionally converted to an owner’s dressing and storage cabin with two full-length wardrobes, a drawer and dressing table unit and easy access to the fore peak berth/storage area (see photos). The port aft sleeping cabin was adjusted to provide full no-crawl access on one side of the berth. The bed has a custom-made innerspring mattress (2020). This makes her one-of-a-kind, and exceptionally comfortable for a couple. One hull of the boat devoted entirely to the owners. All four cabins feature an ensuite head which makes cruising with friends or family easy for larger groups. Both starboard queen guest cabins with ensuites remain in their standard configuration. Each cabin features hanging lockers, ample light and ventilation.

The enormous cockpit is the ultimate outdoor living area and can cater for the largest of sundowner groups as well as being a great all-round lounging space for the family. A feature of the Leopard 46 is the great connectivity between the helm station, the cockpit and the saloon, allowing all of the family to enjoy and share the cruising life.

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

— Jimmy

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.


— Beverly Cory

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.

— JT

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.
