2024 Leopard 40 Powercat
The highly anticipated Leopard 40 Powercat made its debut in December 2022 in Cape Town, South Africa. The smallest of the Leopard Powercat series, this catamaran leaves nothing to the imagination. Entirely reinvented, the Leopard Powercat 40 delivers volume and comfort, particularly in the cabins. Relax in style knowing that the highest requirements of comfort, performance and seaworthiness are met in this stunning vessel. This is bluewater cruising at its finest.
A reinvention in the Leopard Powercat series, the Leopard 40 Powercat presents a new generation of cruising possibilities. Bringing optimal reliability, speed, stability and fuel consumption, this vessel joins the successful Leopard 46 and Leopard 53 models as a world leader in the cruising power catamaran market. Built by Robertson & Caine and designed by naval architects Simonis Voogd, the Leopard 40 Powercat is masterfully engineered, maintaining an excellent weight and trim ratio rarely found in catamarans of this size. Research using computational fluid dynamics tools has enabled this feat and made the Leopard 40 PC a class leader.
The Leopard 40 Powercat embodies all the distinct design characteristics of the Leopard series but with a new modernity. Superior craftsmanship and materials, including Leopard’s signature side glazing that runs the length of the planking, show off the vessel’s elegant lines. Its 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. Enjoy outdoor living with large aft cockpit as well as the largest flybridge found in a 40-foot vessel.
Step aboard and experience exceptional living at sea. Each living space is intentionally designed with comfort and functionality in mind. Ample communal space is found throughout, including the aft cockpit, flybridge and aft decks. Unique to the Leopard line, sunbathing areas are accessible through the side decks or directly from the saloon by way of the front door. Whether for group gatherings or solitude reflection, there is always a space to manifest the next milestone in your journey.
Venture further and discover accommodations that put you right at home. At the bow, the saloon brings everyone together to relish another day at sea. The fully equipped L-shaped galley is conducive to conversation and brings greater ease when preparing meals. The three cabins feature generous island beds and sea views in the hulls. Two heads are located in the passageway on the port side and forward on the starboard side and offer a spacious setting with a separate shower.
Intentionally designed to avoid disturbances, the two technical areas are located at the rear and are isolated and accessible only from the outside. They are equipped with two engines of 250, 320, or 370 horsepower that satisfy the Leopard 40 Powercat’s high performance and reliability standards. With capabilities of reaching 17 knots at cruising speed and more than 20 knots at top speed, passengers will find agility and remarkable seaworthiness with the new Leopard 40 Powercat.
