Exquiste Owners Version Leopard 46

DRAGONFLY is a 2008 46’ Leopard catamaran designed by renowned cat designers Morelli and Melvin and built by Robertson & Caine in South Africa.

This “owners version” features a huge master suite in one hull, with additional storage closets instead of the settee found in most models. A full walk-in shower, washer/dryer, office w/ desk, sliding privacy door, queen bed, flatscreen TV with DVD, and independent air conditioning make this an outstanding layout. Completely outfitted for diving, including a fold down dive platform, compressor and tanks.

The port hull features two large staterooms as well as an additional crew berth in the bow. The aft stateroom has a full head with toilet, sink and shower. The forward stateroom has a toilet and sink; the shower area has been converted into a pantry for extra storage. Both staterooms have large hatches for ventilation and light, as well as ample shelves, under bed lockers and hanging lockers for storage. The port hull has separate air conditioning.

The saloon includes a large, forward facing nav station with redundant helm controls (VHF, autopilot) as well as an Icom M802 SSB radio, Irridium sat phone, Fusion stereo with Sirius satellite system, and USB charging outlets.

The galley has a double stainless steel sink, Force 10 propane stove with oven, fresh water filter system, Corian countertops, LED lighting throughout, separate 24v fridge and freezer, and lots of storage.

There is ample room for eight people at the table and one side drops down to form a lounging area to read or watch movies on the flatscreen TV. The saloon has it’s own dedicated air conditioning system.

There are two Yanmar 54hp 4JH3E 4-cylinder diesel motors (under 900 hours each) that will carry her easily at seven knots using one gallon of fuel per hour. Each motor has a 90 amp alternator for charging the separate 600aH LifeLine start batteries, and additional Balmar 130 amp alternators and charge regulators for charging the house batteries. The Yanmar SD-50 saildrives are equipped with Max Prop 4-blade feathering props for less drag when sailing. DRAGONFLY can motor at 5 knots using one engine for a 1,500 mile range under power. She carries 180 gallons of fuel (two aluminum tanks), 200 gallons of water (two roto-molded plastic tanks), and has two 24-gallon holding tanks (for waste).

DRAGONFLY has three electric systems: 12v, 24v and 110v. All energy use and battery performance is easily adjusted and monitored through the digital Victron Skylla controls at the electric panel. Between the 1,320 watts of solar panels, oversized alternators, 350 watt wind generator, and 9kw genset, there is ample energy with minimal use of the genset, if desired.

There are manuals for all of the systems, instruments and devices on board, including s the original 110-page Leopard Owners Manual.

DRAGONFLY is set up as a ready-to-go world cruising yacht and as such there is more impressive hardware and equipment on board than you can imagine, with extensive spare parts for extended cruising. See the Inventory List.

Manufacturer Provided Description

Built by Robertson and Caine, and designed by renowned architects Morrelli and Melvin, the Leopard 46 is a blue water cruising catamaran that combines spacious living accommodations, high quality fittings and great performance. Inspired by the Leopard 62, the raised helm station is located in the hard top roof with open access to the cockpit and all controls lead aft, for excellent visibility and ease of manoeuvres. The starboard hull is entirely dedicated to the owner, with a large private cabin, study area, separate head and shower room and attractive beech wood finishes throughout. The port hull accommodates two spacious guest cabins each with en suite head and separate shower. The signature ‘walk-through’ access to the roomy cockpit and aft bathing platform connecting the two transoms, completes this exciting new model. (Also available with 4 cabins.)
