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.
