2005 Leopard 43 “Iditarum”
Brokers remarks: “Iditarum” is one of few Leopard 43 for sale in the Caribbean. She is in nice condition and shows well. Her owner has well taken care of her and “Iditarum” is ready for your spring time cruising in the Virgin Islands or beyond. This has has a recently fitted Northern Lights generator with very low hours. Please review the complete specifications. This yacht is set up for a cruising couple: very easy to manage and maintain and an emphasis on comfort and safety. This yacht will not last long at this price!
Builders remarks:The Leopard 43 was designed as a short handed, comfortable and reasonably fast passage maker. Hand laid up by experienced craftsmen and designed by well know designers Simonis & Voogd. Over 1300 Leopard catamarans sail the 7 seas since 1997. Leopard catamarans offer unparalleled standard for seaworthiness and cruising performance, combined with the best possible comfort inside & outside.

SAILS AND RIGGING
The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.
Classic hull speed formula:
Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWLA more accurate formula devised by Dave Gerr in The Propeller Handbook replaces the Speed/Length ratio constant of 1.34 with a calculation based on the Displacement/Length ratio.
Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio.311
Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL
A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.
SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64)2/3
A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.
Ballast / Displacement * 100
A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.
D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³
This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.
Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam1.33)
This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.
CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)
