Leopard Catamarans now has a long list of very successful and popular power catamarans, which will soon include the anticipated and exceptional Leopard 43 Powercat, launched in Cape Town, South Africa in August, 2015. Built by Robertson & Caine and exterior design by Simonis Voogd Design, to be newest member of the power fleet replaces the Leopard 39 Powercat. The Leopard 43 PC is a completely redesigned mid-sized catamaran built with the quality foundation that has come to be expected of Leopard Catamarans. There were no details left unattended in the creation of this new power yacht, including the hull design, speed, standard specifications, updated interior, and much more.
“I think this model is what customers have been waiting for. It’s a great value for the quality, performance, and durability of a Leopard”, says Daniel Snyman, Leopard Regional Sales Manager for Africa ,Mauritius & Seychelles. “She offers great fuel range at cruising speed, a lot of outdoor space including an enormous flybridge which can be fully enclosed. She is economical, easy to handle, and spacious with 27% more interior volume than her predecessor”.
The stepped hull design of this powercat adds interior volume above the waterline, allowing for roomier accommodations in the hulls without sacrificing the performance of the yacht. With narrower hulls and less wetted surface below the waterline, the Leopard 43 PC reaches an impressive maximum speed of 23+ knots (27 MPH) and maintains exceptional fuel efficiency consistent with all Leopard power catamaran models.
Outdoor living space is maximized on the Leopard 43 PC. An extension of the Leopard 51 PC flybridge design, the Leopard 43 PC flybridge also includes a grill, wet bar and direct access to the sunbathing platform found forward. She also includes a large aft cockpit and access door from the main saloon to the forward platform of the boat. The access door increases ventilation for the interior of the vessel and makes maneuvering around the catamaran easier.
The all new Leopard 43 PC is a massive leap forward from the 39 PC. Now into our fourth generation of power catamarans in collaboration with Robertson & Caine, we have continuously improved our power products with fast and economical catamarans, offering ample accommodations, large flybridges, access forward from inside the main saloon, and superior rides in all conditions. The 43 PC is the logical extension of the very successful 51 PC for private owners and charterers alike, as Leopard power catamarans are now a leader of the US market in this segment.
