Leopard 430 (2007) 'Starchaser'


Leopard 430We’re delighted to present our Leopard 430 Catamaran for charter in Grenada, “Star Chaser”. The Leopard 430 comes from the designers Robertson and Caine and is considered one of the most popular designs for charter guests and cruisers. This ideal charter catamaran is spacious and luxurious, combining 4 ensuite cabins as well as two single berths in the forward bows. This makes the layout perfect for families and friends. Also, this yacht features complete electronics and high powered engines, providing great performance under sail and power. An on-board generator and air conditioning ensure year-round comfort.

The cockpit is large and spacious and covered by a hard-top coach roof. It leads onto a large swim platform, perfect for an afternoon snorkel or early morning swim. The hard top also provides excellent protection from the sun ad easy access to the mainsail. The helm seat is raised to starboard with room for two and its own sunroof for viewing the mainsail. There is a 360 degree view making navigation and maneuvers easy.

Large louvers in the forward end of the house restrict sun glare into the interior and are good steps to the coach roof. The anchor and electric windlass are on the centerline inside a hatch for ease when anchoring.

Two large trampolines forward provide a comfortable place to lounge and enjoy your vacation. Also, two pulpit seats forward further enhance the lounging area by the trampolines.

The Leopard 430’s sailing performance is enhanced by a large fully battened mailsail and 120% genoa. Past guests have reached sailing of 10 knots in winds of 20 knots or less with both main and genoa out.

The interior integrates an open-plan layout with exceptional volume. The Saloon is light and bright, boasting panoramic views and a modern galley up design with Corian work surfaces. Air-conditioning and an on-board generator provide additional interior comfort.

Access below is through wide glass doors that pour light into the spacious saloon. The dinette forward is raised to provide 360-degree views around the boat and seats eight with ease.

Star Chaser is designed to stay cool in the Caribbean with four portlets above the galley and dinette forward for good flow-through ventilation right through to the cockpit. Also, there is a brand new air-conditioner and 6kw quiet Northern Lights generator to provide the ultimate comfort for chartering.

The open plan galley comes equipped with blender/smoothie maker, food processor, ice-maker, two burner stove and double sink. There are ample work surfaces allowing for ease of food preparation. The saloon has an AM/FM CD player, Speakers inside and out. The large dining table is comfortable and inviting. Cushions are newly covered with “soft as butter” leatherette.

The four en-suite cabins are well appointed with easy access to getting in and out of the queen size berths. Also, there are ample ports to allow for cross ventilation in the cabins and heads. 110 Outlets are in each cabin to keep cell phones charged. Lastly, each head has its own shower, medicine cabinet and two ports for ventilation.

Please also review the list of included equipment and amenities Horizon Yacht Charters provides on all our Yachts.
