Seller's Description

Immaculate Owners Version

Brand NEW Lithium and Solar

The Leopard 40 is known to most experienced multihull cruisers as being one of the best and most well rounded 40’ cruising catamarans ever produced.

Hakuna Matata has never been chartered, and has been pampered by her owner of the past 6 years. In 2022 she recieved several high end upgrades including a top of the line lithium battery and solar charging system. She’s just out of the boatyard with new bottom paint and ceramic waxed hulls.

If you are looking for a well equipped and exceptionally maintained owners version cruising cat, Hakuna Matata will absolutely not dissapoint.

Additional Details

What makes this such a fantastic catamaran?

The Leopard 40 owners version is one of my personal favorite catamaran designs, and Hakuna Matata is an exceptional example.

Here are a few reasons I am so impressed with Hakuna Matata.

  • The generator is tucked away in a forward deck hatch away from your guests. The cockpit can remain a quiet place for conversation and entertaining at all times.
  • With the new lithium and solar setup- This boat will be self sufficient for days on the hook! Full usable 600 amp hours, not half like you get with an AGM or Deep cycle battery bank.
  • All lines lead to the helm station where an electric winch with foot switches handles everything. This cat can be single handed. There is a cubby for line storage beneath.
  • Three staterooms and two heads and showers. Two heads with seperate showers is ideal for any catamaran that will be used for cruising.
  • The owners version dedicates the entire starboard hull to a private stateroom with ensuite head and desk area.
  • Many experts in the industry know this design well, and in many cases prefer it to the newer Leopard 40 design. They are known to be excellent sailors. and very well rounded cruisers.
  • The boat is a managable size, with an ICW friendly (63’) mast that offers spirited performance. Easy to sail shorthanded.
  • The salon is accessed by sturdy stainless and glass sliding doors, with a section of the galley counter that folds down into the cockpit.
  • The helm position is situated on a raised section of the cockpit with a large portion of the hard top that slides open over the helmsman for excellent visibility. The helm is still part of the party.
  • Both engines are accessed via deck hatches near the stern. No pulling apart bedding to check fluid levels or perform maintenance.
  • The built in refrigerator and seperate freezer are enormous and run off a single Seafrost compressor. Interior / Cockpit

Being an owners version, the entire starboard hull is dedicated to the owners suite with private head forward. The port hull has two more private staterooms with a single head separating them.

Calculations

Hull Speed
10.8 kn
Classic: 8.21 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.

Formula

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

10.82 knots
Classic formula: 8.21 knots
Sail Area/Displacement
24.8
>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.

Formula

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.
24.83
<16: under powered
16-20: good performance
>20: high performance
Ballast/Displacement
?

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.

Formula

Ballast / Displacement * 100

?
<40: less stiff, less powerful
>40: stiffer, more powerful
Displacement/Length
142.6
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.

Formula

D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
142.64
<100: ultralight
100-200: light
200-300: moderate
300-400: heavy
>400: very heavy
Comfort Ratio
12.4
<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.

Formula

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
12.42
<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
3.2
>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.

Formula

CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
3.15
<2: better suited for ocean passages
>2: better suited for coastal cruising
