Our amazing 48 foot sailing catamarans.

Voyages are conducted aboard the award-winning Leopard 4600 catamarans. These elegantly designed and precision built vessels incorporate safety features, large deck space, a roomy cockpit, light and ergonomic galley, and an enormous transom (for easy entry and exit from the water while wearing SCUBA gear), with an advanced sail plan that makes them fast and easy to sail. These vessels offer comfortable accommodations, excellent safety and quality construction. The perfect choice for our trips, the catamarans provide a stable platform that allows us to dive in all conditions and have plenty of room to store our gear. Full equipment is provided aboard for each participant and there is no sharing of SCUBA gear or waiting for your turn to dive. As we dive directly off our yachts, you do not have to wait around for a dive boat to pick you up, allowing you much more adventure.

The 4800 catamarans are true blue-water cruisers featuring a self-stacking mainsail with integral sail cover, roller-furling genoa, and twin 55 hp diesel engines. An electric windlass with handheld remote makes anchoring easy. The raised helm station is at the forward end of the spacious cockpit and above the cockpit’s hardtop roof, providing 360 degrees of visibility. A hardtop bimini shades the helm. The cockpit has walk-through access to the swim platforms, a full electronics package that includes a color chart-plotter and autopilot, stereo/MP3player speakers, a large table, and lots of seating. A wide door opens to the luxurious saloon.

The saloon features a plush U-shaped settee and a large dining table with seating for eight that converts to a double berth. There’s also a HD TV. The galley has all amenities and plenty of counter space. The yacht has four luxurious double and two single staterooms with dressing areas and en suite electric heads and separate shower stalls. There is ample storage space throughout. Numerous opening ports and hatches provide superior ventilation to keep the cabins cool and comfortable. The yacht is equipped with a powerful generator.
