About Leopard catamarans

Charter Experience

In 1994, South African builder Robertson and Caine entered into an agreement with the premier global yacht charter company, to manufacture specifically designed catamarans for its charter fleet. In less than 4 years, Robertson and Caine delivered the 100th catamaran with every one of them delivered on their own bottoms around the world: what better proof of their blue water capabilities?

Private Sales

Due to market demand, the relationship expanded with the launch of Leopard Catamarans in the year 2000. Sailors were impressed with the new line of catamarans coming from the Robertson and Caine factories and were interested in purchasing them for private use, making their own choice of layout, optional gear and delivery locations.

Launch Power Cats

In 2007 Leopard Catamarans ventured into the power catamaran market with the introduction of the Leopard 47 power catamaran. Because of the incredible fuel efficiency of this model, the Leopard 47PC was an instant success. Soon after, the Leopard 37PC was introduced to satisfy the demand for a smaller powercat. In 2011 this model was replaced with the Leopard 39PC, and in turn, in 2015, the Leopard 43PC. The Leopard 51PC replaced the Leopard 47PC and includes a multitude of exciting features such as a forward cockpit.

Skyrocketing Growth

In early 2012 the 1,000th Leopard Catamaran was launched, further establishing Robertson and Caine’s position in the catamaran market. Today, more than 2500 Leopard cats have been delivered around the globe. Leopard Catamarans has made impressive steps and grown very fast over the past decade, becoming the industry’s leader in the production and delivery of quality catamarans for private and charter fleets worldwide. With a global dealership network spanning 6 continents and 20 plus countries, Leopard owners know that there is always support nearby for parts, expertise or advice.
