YEBO | 2016 Leopard 48

Brisbane, QLD, AU



YEBO presents a rare opportunity to purchase beautifully maintained, ready to sail away Leopard 48. YEBO is the award winning vessel built by Robertson and Caine in Cape Town, South Africa. Focused on blue water performance and comfortable living, the 48 is an exciting addition to the Leopard line. The vessel features a large forward cockpit seating area with direct access from the saloon door, unique to the Leopard range. Other exterior features include a large and open aft cockpit with large table. A raised helm station, providing panoramic visibility, allows for excellent blue water manoeuvrability.

The Leopard 48 Yebo was originally a Crewed Version in the Mooring's fleet and has only ever been sailed by qualified crew. Her current owners took delivery in the British Virgin Islands and have spent the last 2 and half years exploring the Bahamas, Carribean, Central America and enjoying the waters and Islands around the South Pacific before arriving into Australia.

Yebo's electrical system has been fully revamped by her current owner, converting to 220v (via Victron Quatro 5kw inverter) and increased AC plug points and USB chargers throughout the boat. Plug points are all international plugs and able to accept any male plug. There is increased safety with 10mA leakage breakers on plug points near the sink and outside. 2600w of solar on a large stainless solar arch to charge 900ah lithium (3x300ah Kilovault with internal BMS). The system was all professionally installed to ABYC standards and has added hardware such as the Lynx shunt and Cerbro control unit with full digital display and control panel at the electrical panel. Further additions include Balmar alternator regulators to ensure the vessel can charge safely off the alternators and can get between 1000w-1600w per alternator. There is also the option to use house batteries to start the engines (manually controlled in the engine bay) in emergency.

The Leopard 48 YEBO is the perfect opportunity for a couple or family who are ready to explore. Her shallow draft, swim ladder, davit system and stability makes her ideal for cruising and diving the beautiful coral reefs of Australia and beyond.

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.

— 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.
