Leopard 46 “Marine Venus” (2010) 'Marine Venus'Gallery
Horizon Yacht Charters are delighted to present this Grenada Crewed yacht – a Leopard 46 Catamaran called “Marine Venus”. This spacious Leopard 46 charter catamaran comes from the designers Robertson and Caine and is always a popular choice for Grenada crewed yacht charters.
The Leopard 46 interior layout integrates an open-plan layout with exceptional volume, offering a comfortable cruising cat with superior performance levels. This luxurious yacht is complete with air-conditioning and provides four well appointed and comfortable double cabins, four heads with showers and an additional single cabin which has access from the foredeck. Instead of dividing the cockpit and saloon into two separate areas, a one-level space integrates the two into an exceptional living area.
Above decks, the cockpit, under the shade of a full bimini, provides plenty of space for all guests. The raised helm station allows 360 degree panoramic visibility, centering the main sailing controls in one area. The Leopard 46 sailing performance, overall layout and supreme ease of handling make ‘Marine Venus’ a superb choice of yacht for your Grenada crewed yacht charter.

Great boat, great service!
Mark Hernandez, Leopard 46 "Marine Venus", Apr. 14 – 23, 2015, Grenada
The trip met and far exceeded our expectations. It was a well planned and executed trip that we will never forget.
John Murphy, "Marine Venus" Leopard 46, October 2015, Grenada
Returned home last week after a 10 day charter, my second experience with HYC and my first on a catamaran. We had a crew of 6 and a skipper, Shaun Tarr – highly recommended. As he put it, he was there to keep us safe; teach me to sail the cat and to do what I did not want to do. Sailing a cat is quite different from a monohull and this is an incredible yacht. Once again, I was very favorably impressed with the professional service provided by Horizon.
We all agree that our experience with HYC in Grenada will bring us back.
David & Bonita Minors, Luxury Crewed Yacht Leopard 46 "Marine Venus", Sept 2014.
Both David & I would like to let your company know what a wonderful week we had on your Catamaran. Weather wise we could not have expected better. Our skipper Selwyn must be given A+. We felt very confident & relaxed with him at the helm. Your chef Ellie was always upbeat & her meals were to die for – tasty, healthy & it was nice not knowing what she had in store for us next! We came home feeling like we should – Completely relaxed & pleased with our decision to use Horizon Yacht Charters. We will definitely pass on your name to others interested in doing a similar trip.
Erik Dyce, January 25 – February 1, 2019
Great trip. We loved the office staff and marina personnel. Our chef Joe made it especially wonderful – we highly recommend her
Don Allebach, 9th-16th March 2019
My wife & I have sailed with Horizon in Grenada many times. This trip we brought kids & grandkids. As usual staff & service were wonderful. We’re so glad to be able to share our Grenada experience with our family.
