Stable, smooth, comfortable
catamaran sailing at its best!
The Leopard 43 maximizes safety, space, performance and comfort. Built in Cape Town, the Leopard 43 features 4 spacious double cabins, each with private head and shower, two single berths in the forward bows, a modern galley-up design with panoramic views. Heat & air-conditioning (dockside), refrigerator, complete electronics, a powerful sail plan and high-powered reliable Yanmar engines (40hp ea.).
Tons of outdoor space, great for swimming, lunch, site seeing.
This is a great boat, perfect for sailing the SF bay area and out into the Pacific. The boat isn't new, so don't expect inside immaculate. All aspects of the boat worked, the sails, rigging and typical equipment is in excellent condition. The dingy is technically a small sailboat, which if the weather was mild would be great as a secondary sailing experience for young sailors. The boat also has two inflatable kayaks, which also provides a great benefit it you desire to explore or let the kids play. There is no generator if that is a concern for those doing destination coastal sailing without going into a marina.
Very good, responsible and friendly owner.
Precise in instructions, you can not make a mistake if you follow what Michael said.
Catamaran is clean and well kept, everything working.
I would recommend Michael and his CAT to my friends and looking forward to charter again.
Another great experience with Michael. He graciously waited for us to get there (we were 20min. late) so he could run us through everything again. The boat was super clean and sailed beautifully. My favorite owner (and boat) in SF.
Michael is the best owner I've ever met on Boatbound. He is extremely friendly, easy-going, and helpful. His boat is in beautiful condition and is a breeze to sail with a couple friends. We had an awesome day on the water and I look forward to renting from him again.
