2024 Leopard 53 Powercat
The Leopard 53 Powercat, the largest in the Leopard family, was named the 2020 Multihull of the Year winner. This, among other accolades, has solidified the vessel’s standing as a leader in its class. Sea trialed off the coast of South Africa, the Leopard 53 Powercat is easy to maintain and up to 50% more fuel efficient than any monohull motor yacht counterparts. A reincarnation of the previous Leopard 51, the Leopard 53 Powercat has been reimagined to provide greater speed, comfort, performance and luxury. Live your passion aboard the Leopard 53 and enjoy the journey ahead.
Built by Robertson & Caine and designed by naval architects Simonis Voogd, the Leopard 53 Powercat marries comfort, performance and ease of handling, delivering an unparalleled blue water cruising experience. This 4th generation vessel features all the attributes that made its predecessors successful, while reimagining what a powercat should be. Here, there is no compromise; the Leopard 53 expertly combines luxury with the rugged and adventurous spirit for which the brand is known. The result is unprecedented space, stability, and efficiency with every creature comfort one would expect from a luxury motor yacht.
Outdoor entertaining space is paramount, and the Leopard 53 has been expertly designed to anticipate every need of the passenger. Spacious seating large enough to accommodate everyone surrounds a large table, creating the perfect environment to convene and recount the day’s adventures, enjoy a meal with spectacular views, or just sit back and take in the salt air.
Intuitive design throughout means improved functionality and efficiency, including the flybridge and helm station with maximized visibility. All coach roof windows are flat toughened glass for optical clarity. Smart, ergonomic design and the latest technology work harmoniously to create ease of operation and maintenance for a seamless onboard experience.
Inside, a modern interior with a cool palette immediately sets the tone for at-sea living. The saloon features an L-shaped lounge and a two-person settee with an option to add an interior navigation station. The hull side window, with the option of different portlight configurations, as well as the coach roof windows and panoramic windows in the saloon, bring in an abundance of natural light. At night, smart lighting casts warm, consistent light throughout the space. It’s easy to move about with access to the foredeck through the forward saloon door. The galley, a natural gathering spot, offers ample storage and is outfitted with Staron® worktop surfaces and a full suite of appliances making meal preparations easy and enjoyable.
The Leopard 53 Powercat reimagines comfort through its optimal use of space and attention to detail, evident in every aspect of the design. Available in three- or four-cabin layouts with the option for separate crew cabins, private quarters include ensuite heads with their own shower area. The three-cabin owner’s version provides an at-home feel with a large island bed, a walk-in closet and a double vanity. A separate engine room that houses all major systems is completely sealed off from the living space, substantially reducing engine noise and odors.
