Leopard Catamarans Celebrates the Launch of its Leopard 40 Powercat with a Sunset Cruise
Leopard Catamarans, a world leader in the power catamaran market, celebrated the debut of its Leopard 40 Powercat (Leopard 40 PC) with a Sunset Cruise on Fort Lauderdale’s Intracoastal Waterway on July 18. A reinvention in the Leopard Powercat series, the Leopard 40 Powercat presents a new generation of cruising possibilities and brings optimal reliability, speed, stability and fuel consumption to both seasoned and new boaters.
VIP guests boarded the vessel at the first-class waterfront destination Bahia Mar in the heart of Fort Lauderdale Beach. Guests mingled with the Leopard Catamarans executive team on the innovative and coveted new model while enjoying champagne and canapés overlooking the panoramic backdrop of Fort Lauderdale. Passengers had the opportunity to experience the newly debuted Leopard 40 Powercat and see why Leopard Catamarans leads the world in cruising catamarans.
Known for extraordinary craftsmanship and optimal performance, both Leopard sailboat and power catamaran lines are built with flexibility for the modern seafarer and offer a range of equipment and layout options designed with each boater’s journey in mind. Evolving from 50 years of customer feedback, Leopard Catamarans has pooled their expertise with South African boat builders Robertson and Caine and Naval Architects Simonis Voogd to design today's Leopard range: spacious, robust, performance-driven blue water cruising catamarans.
Joining the successful Leopard 46 and Leopard 53 power catamaran models, the Leopard 40 Powercat is masterfully engineered. With capabilities of reaching 17 knots at cruising speed and more than 20 knots at top speed, passengers will find exhilarating agility and remarkable seaworthiness with the Leopard 40 PC. Just as easily, the vessel offers relaxed living at sea where each living space is intentionally designed with comfort and functionality in mind.
“The Leopard 40 PC embodies the distinct characteristics that appeal to a variety of new owners,” said Katie Campbell, Marketing Manager for Leopard Catamarans. “Through this event with a stunning Fort Lauderdale backdrop, we were excited to showcase the new Leopard 40PC which has been meticulously crafted to meet the highest standards of comfort and seaworthiness.” Guests aboard the sunset cruise could experience each of the vessel’s living spaces and take in the ocean breeze from the largest flybridge found in a 40-foot vessel. Designed with comfort and functionality in mind, ample communal space is found throughout the vessel, including the aft cockpit, flybridge, aft decks and l-shaped galley, ideal for entertaining at sea.
The vessel’s smart design also includes an interior steering position that provides maximum safety, with a perfect peripheral view of the sea while remaining sheltered from the elements.
Below deck, the Leopard 40PC’s three cabins feature generous island beds and sea views in the hulls, ensuring both privacy and comfort.
