$698,000 USD

Seller's Description

Owners Version, Fully loaded Leopard 48 - this is the one you have been looking for.

Never Chartered, No Storm damage - ever.

Hull Painted in immaculate flag blue Awlgrip.

Upgraded cruising Laminate sails, Screacher, symmetric and asymmetric cruising spinnakers make this already great performing model of catamaran the best performing example out there.

Full equipment including Genset (approx 350 hours!) Air Conditioning, Custom Cockpit upholstery, Powered Winches, Raymarine Electronics, Solar, Watermaker, and all systems kept to a very high standard. Highly detailed service and maintenance records included. 2021 Highfield 360 RIB tender and Yamaha 15hp outboard motor included.

This Owners version Leopard 48 has had two owners since new. It was shipped from the factory to the great lakes, where it spent the first part of its life in Fresh Water. It was then delivered down to the Gulf of Mexico where it has been cruised around Florida and the Bahamas in the winter seasons, and stored in a hurricane safe location in Georgia in summers. Sellers just completed their dream cruise through the Bahamas and Caribbean islands, and a life change now forces a sale.

Summer storage has been arranged at a high end marina in Grenada, including caretaking, regular maintenance, and cleaning.

The first buyer to see “Valerie” WILL buy her. Make your cruising dreams a reality now!

Hull Speed
11.1 kn
Classic: 9.03 kn

Hull Speed

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 √LWL

A 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

11.11 knots
Classic formula: 9.03 knots
Sail Area/Displacement
>20: high performance

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

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

  • SA: Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D: Displacement in pounds.
<16: under powered
16-20: good performance
>20: high performance

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

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

<40: less stiff, less powerful
>40: stiffer, more powerful
100-200: light

Displacement / Length Ratio

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

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
<100: ultralight
100-200: light
200-300: moderate
300-400: heavy
>400: very heavy
Comfort Ratio
<20: lightweight racing boat

Comfort Ratio

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)

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
<20: lightweight racing boat
20-30: coastal cruiser
30-40: moderate bluewater cruising boat
40-50: heavy bluewater boat
>50: extremely heavy bluewater boat
Capsize Screening
>2.0: better suited for coastal cruising

Capsize Screening Formula

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)

  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
<2: better suited for ocean passages
>2: better suited for coastal cruising


Main Sail Area: 90.8m2 /977 sq.ft.
Genoa Area: 53.7m2/ 581 sq. ft.
