S/V Fox is a Panama based Leopard 40 catamaran for sale by owner

The leopard 40, built in South Africa by Robertson and Caine have an excellent reputation. They were designed by Morelli & Melvin, naval architects, who are specialists of prestigious multihulls, including the America Cup boats. The Leopard 40, thanks to its sleek design is fast and easy-to-maneuver when single-handed. Her winches are ingeniously placed near the helm for easy handling.

My wife and I bought this catamaran with the intention of doing a second circumnavigation, and we rigged the boat accordingly. FOX has SSB and an AIS transponder, and all the bluewater gear. There are tools, spares, dive gear/tank, extra fluids for everything, epoxy repair materials, underwater repair kit, spare anchor with rode…everything you might need in an uninhabited Polynesian atoll. The spinnaker set up is very easy and light to handle. We sailed down as far as Ecuador and then did some soul-searching (that we should have done earlier…haha) and decided that at our ages we did not want to commit to another 10 year cruise…therefore someone’s going to get a great deal.

We love this boat as her Galley is practical, with large cabinets for storage and a countertop which facilitates the passage of dishes at the table in the cockpit. Dining accommodates eight people sitting comfortably, while leaving free access to the cockpit. The cockpit transitions to aft steps to the water. In order to ensure the safety of very young passengers while in navigation a small gate is planned to close this access.

On the bridge of each side of the mast wide steps facilitate access to the roof of the cockpit and serve as benches comfortable as well as an effective Bimini, without affecting helm visibility. Because of her complete design, the Leopard 40 was the logical choice in catamarans, as they were named boat of the year in 2005 based on their on space/price /performance.

S/V Fox has been carefully maintained and is ready to sail towards new horizons and the joy of its new owners. LED’s inside and out, full cockpit enclosures, lines lead to helm station, outdoor shower on port aft deck, 9 fenders, good condition, full mooring lines with chafe protection Hauled out in Feb 2017, antifouled, new zincs, saildrive seals etc.

Literally sail-away, with all the spares, tools, marine water hoses, deck cleaning brushes, dive gear, fishing gear, linen, kitchen accessories (fully equipped galley, with plates, utensils, glasses for at least 6 people), manuals, extra fluids…everything necessary to cross any ocean immediately.
