Leopard catamarans have evolved over the years using customer feed back for continued improvements.  The Leopard 43 is a spacious, robust, performance driven blue water cruising catamaran.  These vessels are comfortable and safe at sea with all running rigging led aft to the cockpit for easy access and sail control.  The protected helm station is designed for offshore single handed sailing. The full enclosure and hard top provides protection from the elements in all weather conditions.  Stray Cat has never been chartered and has had only two owners.  The current owner is a knowledgeable skipper and has cruised aboard with his family for the last five years.  The boat has been continually upgraded and meticulously maintained.  With her shallow draft of just 4′ 5″ she is perfect for local cruising in shallow bays or crossing oceans on your next great adventure.
