Leopard 40 PC

A third powercat joins the Leopard range

Robertson & Caine is undoubtedly, along with Fountaine Pajot, one of the manufacturers that got in early in the powercat market. Following the launch of two large models - the 53 and 46PC - and the retirement of the very successful 43PC, it comes as no surprise to discover a new compact model, the 40PC.

In terms of design, his powercat blends perfectly into the new range with very long hull windows and an immense flybridge. It features an imposing panoramic coachroof with a beautiful L-shaped galley and, despite being shorter in length, manages to house great cabins all equipped with island beds and bathrooms. But the real plus compared to the 43PC? Aboard this model, there’s a proper interior helm station.
As for the hulls, architect Alexander Simonis used CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) software to optimize the longitudinal balance, a task that is necessarily more difficult with shorter hulls.
Launch of hull #1 is scheduled for the end of the year in Cape Town, South Africa. The manufacturer anticipates making a world preview in February 2023 at the Miami International Boat Show, followed by a European presentation at the International Multihull Show in La Grande Motte in April. The Leopard 40PC will also be available for charter and to owners in a management program with The Moorings, where it will join the fleet under the name Moorings 403PC.
