AI-generated summary

Expertly crafted in South Africa and the 2017 Boat of the Year winner, the Leopard 45 "Sail La Vie" is a standout catamaran in the market. Built by Robertson and Caine, it flaunts a composite glass-reinforced hull and a fibreglass deck. With a well-balanced spade rudder, it guarantees exceptional sailing performance. Internally, she presents four staterooms in each hull, each boasting en-suite heads—ideal for hosting guests or large family adventures. Saloon space is expansive, with forward-facing galley and dine-in seating; a convertible table can become an extra double bunk. Unique selling points include panoramic views from wide sliding saloon doors and a hardtop bimini sheltering a raised helm station.

Aside from the impressive interiors, the Leopard 45's efficient systems ensure a smooth sailing experience, complete with raw water cooling, an electric helm, and fully battened Ullman sails. The engine hours remain undisclosed, but it's equipped with a 9 kW Northern Lights generator and a water maker outputting 117 litres per hour. Notably, the yacht's present condition throughout is excellent, shipshape and ready to sail following its phase out in the Saint Lucia fleet this April.

About this Leopard 45



Builder's Remarks:   We are pleased to announce that the Leopard 45 has been awarded 2017 Boat of the Year by Cruising World Magazine. This marks the 7th Cruising World Boat of the Year win by Leopard. This year’s award was in the newly created Best Charter Catamaran category proving that South African Builders, Robertson and Caine, have perfected the art of not only creating the perfect  boat but one that is perfectly suited for the charter industry as well. 

 The judging was done by a team of three independent industry experts, who conducted thorough dockside inspections and then carried out sea trials. The Leopard 45 proved to be the leader of the pack in all areas of the judging. What stood out in particular was her performance and innovation. Additionally, the judges were impressed by the amount of space provided by the forward cockpit, which is connected to the saloon through a translucent door. Another area of interest to the judges was the main saloon, which hosts a forward facing galley and dinette. The judges also noted that visibility through the Leopard 45 is excellent.

 Broker's Remarks:  "Sail La Vie" is a superb 2019 model Leopard 45, with motivated sellers.  This is a St Lucia yacht, so has avoided all storms, and has lighter use than most charter yachts.  We welcome any survey.  Sail La Vie could make a great yacht to go cruising on.  Owners just lowered price to $499k as they are highly motivated to sell..  

Availability: This yacht will finish her phase out in St Lucia fleet in April and be ready to sail away.

Additional Details

Founded upon the ethos of continuous innovation and feedback from cruising clients, the new Leopard 45 sailing catamaran represents astute value, elegant lines and satisfies blue water passion.

With naval architecture by Simonis & Voogd Yacht Design, and with exterior and interior design by the world-class design team at Robertson and Caine, the Leopard 45 Sailing Catamaran not only builds on the best features of the current Leopard range, but most notably offers new exterior styling and enhanced interior accommodation.

The exterior styling has evolved from the more curvaceous deck features on the current Leopard range, into a sharper, more angular look, topped by a sleek new saloon hardtop, which extends from aft cockpit to forward cockpit.

Available in a 3 or 4 cabin layout, the Leopard 45 offers the perfect entertainment package with increased aft area with new layout, ergonomically designed open plan saloon and galley, larger forward cockpit, and more onboard area.

She’s sleek and nimble, yet comfortable. She incorporates a heritage of Leopards spanning twenty five years of production expertise.

The Leopard 45’s increased area, ergonomically designed open plan saloon and galley, increased forward cockpit and more onboard area make her the ideal catamaran for guest entertaining as well as long-range cruising.

Onboard entertaining is accentuated with ample dining space, and forward facing L shaped seating communicating directly with the galley, situated forward. Wide sliding saloon doors afford panoramic views towards the stern, allowing the interior saloon to flow naturally towards the outside aft and forward cockpit.

The boat is flooded with natural light during the day and after sunset, illuminated by subtle hidden lighting, with individual spotlights to highlight certain areas.

Designed for a modern, blue water lifestyle, the Leopard 45 features a raised helm station covered by a hardtop bimini, with direct access from the cockpit and side deck. All sailing lines lead to easily accessible winches, the primary winches being electric, and operated by footswitches.

In summary, the Leopard 45 Sailing Catamaran delivers uncompromised, exceptional build quality throughout, new, sleek styling, a sensible and practical layout, sailing comfort across all sea states, and features innovative technologies and multiple entertainment areas.
