From the initial design phase until the splash of the first hull, all hands involved in the creation of the Leopard 50 have a genuine passion for the product and it shows. By maximizing the onboard area, she is the perfect catamaran for guest entertaining and long-range cruising. Maintaining the stunning open plan layout with a 360 degree views from the saloon area, yet possessing the qualities that make her a strong and stiff yacht, which is not too heavy, required advanced engineering solutions. The Leopard 50 makes use of carbon infused ring frames in the most critical areas to achieve this. This type of construction has been pioneered on the larger all carbon racing catamarans and is now successfully being applied in this Leopard cruising catamaran so that we can offer the best possible mix between comfort, space and performance.
Think style. Think function. Whether you are cruising the Caribbean or crossing the Pacific Ocean, there is a Leopard 50 for any type of sailor.
Make it your own. With the creation of the Leopard 50 we have found the perfect balance of a production yacht that can be built safely and efficiently, but also allows owners the chance to customize the yacht to their needs both during the production process and in after market fittings. Want to see for yourself? Then watch this video of Leopard 50 owners sharing what they have added to their yacht, including an 8-bottle wine cooler, customized shelving, an extended helm seat and more.
Lounge or Performance? The choice is yours. You have the opportunity to choose between the lounge or the sleek, sporty hard top. The lounge provides an excellent place for friends to congregate at sea or at anchor, and it allows the captain to stay connected with guests on board. The sleek hard top provides more sail area and, combined with the performance sailing package, provides the that extra lift that cruising couples need to make their passage in good time.
This will come as no surprise, as the heart and soul of every Leopard Catamaran are the spaces in which you can enjoy the company of friends and family. But for the live-aboards, ample spaces provide each crew member with their own, personal place to escape. Starting with the fly bridge on deck with seating for up to 10, work your way down the floating staircase to the aft cockpit which provides the perfect place to enjoy dinner with the whole family. Work your way forward through the saloon, the galley and finally the forward access door and into the forward cockpit where you will clink glasses and enjoy a sundowner. And don't forget the signature trampoline, a feature that every sailing catamaran should have.
In the starboard hull you have separate staircase access to both the owner's suite and the VIP cabin, providing complete comfort and privacy for owner and guests. In the port hull you have the option for two cabins with en-suite heads, or instead of a fourth cabin, a utility room that provides laundry facilities, work areas, extra storage and more.
To load your dinghy onto a swim platform or stick to a davit system? That is the question. But thankfully, on the Leopard 50, you have the option to choose which you'd prefer to have! The swim platform provides easy loading and unloading, in addition to the perfect place to dip your toes in the water. But, many bluewater sailors will tell you that they just don't think a swim platform is necessary, and thus we provide the option to choose a davit system.
Find protection, rain or shine. The Leopard 50 is equipped with a hard top over the helm with the ability to completely enclose the helm station. Don't get distracted by the glitz of an unprotected helm on the upper deck of a sailing catamaran. These may look nice for a week long charter, but as an owner, you will not regret protection from the elements. Weather can turn in an instant, and the sun can be absolutely brutal. A hardtop over the helm is a must, and the helm station enclosure, an added bonus. Learn more about helm station accommodations here, from one of our expert sales agents.
The Leopard 50 is internationally recognized as an award winning yacht. Cruising World's "Boat of the Year" is the most well respected title in the industry and the Leopard 50 reigned supreme, following in the foot steps of her sister ship-- the Leopard 45. Additionally, the Leopard 50 was named the 2019 Best Multihull Sailing Yacht at the Christofle Yacht Style Awards which took place in Phuket during the Thailand Yacht Show.
A few things to note about speed and range
Curious about the yachts speed and ability? Tested in 16 knots of wind and pointing at 50 degrees she will cruise at 7 knots. Take her to 90 degrees or 120 degrees with the genoa and you'll see her cruise at 8.5 knots. Should the wind abandon you at sea and you decide to fire up the engines, you will see a max speed of 11 knots. If you cruise at a modest 6.5 knots, fuel consumption will average 1.1 gal/hr. The total maximum range under motor, cruising at 6.5 knots, is approximately 1,110nm. View principal specifications here.
