LEOPARD 3 is fully prepared and ready to sail away.

She is arguably the most high profile racer cruiser yacht in existence. This speed machine has a history around the world for trophy-hunting and record-breaking and represents a pinnacle in the evolutionary timeline of super maxi development. She is an entirely new species of big boat: a 100-foot yacht that undergoes a stunning metamorphosis between a potent racing machine and a 5 stars luxury, crewed charter yacht.



The concept behind LEOPARD 3 was to create a yacht with a radical dual purpose: high performance for racing with a canting keel and twin dagger boards, combined with startling internal volume, accessories and creature comforts to meet the demands of the top-end charter market. The designers excelled in their task and LEOPARD 3 was launched as the first ever super maxi yacht with this dual role in June 2007.


Whilst in full racing mode, LEOPARD 3’s spacious saloon may be waist deep in bagged headsails and foul weather gear however within 24 hours she can be transformed and be ready to receive guests.


Once on board, the size of the external deck areas and overall internal space provided by the 6.80 metres beam are quite breathtaking. The saloon’s impressive height and width provide a luxurious alternative to the deck areas where guests can enjoy the five-star hospitality provided on board.


The interior throughout illustrates the interior designer’s art of wrapping technology into an exceptionally attractive and yet highly functional cocoon. A design which successfully conceals the twin dagger board casings – large, carbon fibre trunks fed by a root system of hydraulic hoses just above floor level. This entire system is capable of raising and lowering the dagger boards under immense loads within seconds ensuring that Leopard is highly responsive for her weight and size.

In cruising mode, the deck offers quite a large space for relaxation and sun beds or hamacs under the awning, with a cockpit fitted with teak deck, table and cushiuns for eight guests comfortably.

All the winches and the sailing functiuns are situated behind this safe zone of the cockpit.

The open transom gives access to the tender and the water, and the swimming ladder is located amiship on the side.

A spraydodger and a bimini keeps a protected area for lunch and dinners.

Once going into race mode, the table and the teak deck in the cockpit are removed to save space and weight.



Forward of the saloon the luxury guest accommodation can be found which can accommodate up to 8 guests. This comprises of a master ensuite cabin, two further double ensuite cabins and two single pullman cabins perfect for families or a group of friends whilst cruising the warmer waters of the Mediterranean or the Caribbean.



Aft of the saloon, the crew area is on a slightly lower level and has a separate companionway leading to the rear of the cockpit and a well equipped galley. Just forward of the chart table, an expanse of carbon provides a dining table for the crew but remove this cover and the yacht’s brain – the Programme Logic Control (PLC) – is laid bare. This vast computer controls Leopard’s 132 hydraulic functions: an astonishing mass of neatly ordered wiring and galaxy of winking lights that prompt a high level of respect from the onlooker and recognition of the PLC’s latent power.



Leopard’s interior is fitted out in an ultra light, airy and modern idiom. Broad companionway carbon steps lead down to the spacious saloon. Elegant yet modern, the saloon is filled with home comforts and comfortably seats 12. There is a large dining table to port surrounded by ample seating in appealing rich fabrics. In-house entertainment comes via the latest in at-screen TV, DVD and Audio equipment.



The cabins are located forward of the saloon, with two single cabins on each side, followed by one double cabin and ensuite bathroom on the port side, and one twi cabin with ensuite bathroom on starboard side.
