Leopard’s New Catamaran Is Promising
Her versatility begins with the option to choose the classic hard-top exterior configuration (called the Leopard 50P), or for the first time on a Leopard Catamaran of this size, an optional flybridge accommodation (Leopard 50L). The Leopard 50L is the ideal layout for anyone looking for more outdoor living space as she comes equipped with a flybridge that includes a lounge area, table, sunbed and optional exterior speakers and shade awning.
Access is provided by floating stairs leading up from the aft cockpit. An important distinction compared to similar sailboat flybridge configurations is that while under sail, passengers can move about the flybridge with ample headroom and never worry about interference from the boom. The flybridge is also situated to still maintain contact with the helm station, an important feature found on all Leopard Catamarans.
Sailors looking for the familiar, continuous hardtop can opt for the Leopard 50P. This version does not have the flybridge and can deliver increased performance particularly when fitted with the offered squaretop mainsail and other available performance-orientated rigging and sail options.
We’re quite sure that the options list will be extensive for this Leopard and judgig from this video, it will be a real joy to actually work on customising one.
