Leopard 47 (2004) 'Kilkenny'
This superb Leopard 47 catamaran available for charter with Horizon Yacht Charters in St Vincent comes from the designers Robertson & Caine and was previously named Cruising World‘s “Best Charter Boat of the Year”.
Her well thought out interior layout provides for four spacious and private double berth staterooms, each with ensuite shower and head. The open plan galley is set out in the bridge deck and comes well equipped with a microwave oven, Force 10 four burner stove, mechanical refrigeration system providing excellent cooling to the freezer box.
The 12V refrigerator box is separate to minimize the opening of the freezer. There are ample work surfaces allowing for uncluttered food preparation. The main saloon is kitted out with an AM/FM and CD player. A large folding dining table with a u-shaped settee provides a comfortable seating arrangement.
Above decks, the wide transom and aft deck offer easy access to the huge cockpit. There is ample space under the shade of a full bimini to seat all guests. Convenient access to the water is provided from the aft deck. The rig geometry for this yacht allows for ease of handing without compromising performance.
