Phuket in the mix as Leopard 51 Powercat marks 100


PHUKET: Leopard Catamarans recently completed hull number 100 of the highly popular Leopard 51 PC, which has proven to be very popular in the Asian market with nine yachts already delivered among Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore, and two more on their way to Phuket by April of this year.

Built by Robertson and Caine and designed by Simonis Voogd Design, the Leopard 51 PC delivers a multitude of features: a sleek and stable design, a large forward cockpit, additional lounging areas, an expansive flybridge and a completely redesigned interior upgraded with modern appliances.

“The 51 PC also offers more stability than traditional power monohulls, as well as providing additional space and a greater value. With a draft of one meter, this yacht can go where other motor yachts of similar size simply can’t. She also boats excellent fuel efficiency,” explained Shoongiat “Kit” Chotithamaporn, Leopard Catamarans’ Yacht Sales Manager-Asia, based in Phuket.

“She incorporates a brilliant ergonomic layout that makes manoeuvring around the power yacht comfortable and easy. The Leopard 51 PC can be driven from the flybridge or as an option from inside,” he added.

Like the other award-winning catamarans of the Leopard fleet, the 51 PC includes a large flybridge with seating for up to eight. She also features a large forward cockpit and a sunbathing platform with direct access to the flybridge.

“She boasts a large and open saloon, a galley with the latest appliances, three cabins and three heads, with the entire starboard hull being dedicated to the owner’s suite, with optional four cabins and four heads,” Mr Shoongiat noted.

“The 51 PC combines the best from the Leopard sailing fleet with the luxury and ease of a power yacht. To add to all of this, with such a large amount of square footage, this catamaran boasts an exceptional value. Unlike traditional monohull powerboats, catamarans offer additional space both inside and out, and more stability,” he said.

In addition to private ownership through Leopard Catamarans the Leopard 51 PC is also available for ownership through The Moorings Yacht Ownership Program as a Moorings 514 PC (four-cabin charter layout).

Through The Moorings Yacht Ownership Program, The Moorings pays the owner’s monthly boat payment, all operating expenses and allows access to up to 12 weeks of owner use per year at The Moorings destinations worldwide.
