LEOPARD 47 POWER CATAMARAN : AN INSPIRED CATAMARAN


Despite their flagrant advantages from a comfort and consumption point of view, motor multihulls are not really eating into the monohull's supremacy in this market segment. Hindered by cultural conservatism and the architecture of leisure ports (extra charge for length, extra charge for beam) they are having trouble progressing, despite the determined attempts by several builders. With the Leopard 47 Power Catamaran, the South African builder, Robertson & Caine has unveiled an original, pragmatic concept, with overall lines which are very close to that of the sailing boats.

The Leopard 47 Power Catamaran, a cunning attempt

Meeting European standards and built in balsa-polyester sandwich, the Leopard 47 Power Catamaran has a distinctive silhouette, very close to that of the sailing catamaran platforms from the same builder (without the flybridge). Completely encircled by a stainless steel rail, the side decks and the sunbathing area offer perfect safety and accessibility. The design of the wedge-shaped coachroof, as well as the portlight cut-outs, is elegant, without overload or lack of proportion. Access to the navigation station from the cockpit via a spiral staircase is reassuring. The design of the hulls stands out from the traditional approach and offers slim forward sections, overhung by a longitudinal step intended to favour the internal visual space. The increase in volume of the underwater lines aft is moderate; the architecture asserts a nice bias towards subtlety.
