Leopard 46 Powercat

The Leopard 46 Powercat stands proudly as the second in a new range of powercats

that have benefited from almost 30 years of accumulated design experience, as well as an injection of new thinking.

Built by South African boat builder Robertson and Caine, the Leopard 46 Powercat was designed with one goal in mind ­– to provide pure comfort and performance compared to the best of its competitors.

“In evaluating the final design, we believe that we have managed to give the Leopard 46PC a character of its own. It stands proudly as the second in a new range of powercats that have benefited from almost 30 years of accumulated design experience, as well as an injection of new thinking. We anticipate that it will surpass the high standard that owners and charterers have come to expect from the Leopard Catamarans brand,” says Robertson and Caine’s Chief Engineer Anthony Key.

The outside cockpit areas are an extension of the interior, all uniting to create a feeling of space and airiness.

 

The forward end of the saloon opens onto a sunny lounging area, complete with adjustable recliners.

B8 Aft Cockpit 05The aft cockpit is a simple, well-proportioned U-shaped settee with a large dining table-sized to seat eight comfortably.

 

B8 Flybridge 07

The flybridge adds a whole alternative seating area and can be used while underway or as an elevated position to enjoy sundowners or even a light meal at anchor. The space is protected by a composite-molded hardtop, which has a newly incorporated “spoiler” along its aft end to reduce excessive turbulence from entering the aft flybridge sundeck when underway.

The main helm station is situated in the flybridge area, and provides a large comfortable seating position, with a commanding all-round view.
