Leopard 58 catamaran : The space ship
Within the family of luxury catamarans there is fierce competition between the world’s leading manufacturers. The possible layouts of these 16-18 meter boats makes them extremely adaptable, so capable of seducing wealthy owners as well as charter operators and even a few defectors from the motorboat world. The Leopard 58 catamaran, exhibited at the Annapolis Boat Show, is still not widely seen in Europe. So we went to Florida to try it out.
Leopard 58 catamaran : A flag ship in keeping with the times
The Leopard 62 catamaran is the largest multihull built by the Cape Town yard, its stretched design was seductive, but its concept, like its size is oriented towards crewed charter. The Leopard 58 catamaran has a more multi-purpose aim, offering a range of features which lend themselves either to high end charter or to family use, with or without crew.
Leopard 58 catamaran : A panoramic deck salon in every versionNext, a look inside our test boat (a 4 cabin version finished in cherry). The Leopard 58 catamaran made available to us really demonstrates the formidable space of the salon, and the seductive feature of access forward. Another strong point in this formula is that the traditional multi-purpose table has been replaced by a proper dining room with a raised position right opposite the superb galley (a total success as much from an ergonomic point of view as an equipment one!)
