2018 Leopard 48 | Supernova

Sail away on this flawless Leopard 48 Sailing Catamaran for the new-boat experience at a pre-owned price. Supernova has never been chartered and has been given the best of maintenance and upgrades. For those looking to snap this yacht up fast, she is currently lying in Gulf Harbour, New Zealand.

Her interior features all the necessities, with a spacious saloon, galley with ample refrigeration and storage, with sleek and modern finishes throughout. The rear cockpit is large and luxurious, fitted with synthetic teak.

Supernova features three cabins with additional bedding in the saloon if needed, meaning it can sleep eight people comfortably - perfect for larger parties. Convenience is the goal throughout, with small luxuries onboard like a washer/dryer, coffee machine, TV, air conditioning, and a water-maker.

She offers all the traditional home comforts, keeping them running with a substantial solar and electrical system with a substantial battery bank.  Additionally, a 9 Kva generator ensures reliable power supply even in remote destinations.

This yacht is well-equipped and has been meticulously maintained, with Yanmar 57 Hp diesels engines that have incredibly low hours, an upgraded sail wardrobe including an upgraded radial cut, square top main, and the yacht has been freshly anti-fouled and serviced.

Supernova is the ultimate in liveaboard experience, offering comfort, safety, and style in one near-new package.

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.
