The Leopard 43PC will come with a choice of 3 or 4 cabins, twin 260hp engines, and 27% more interior volume than the outgoing 39PC

Powercat market leader Leopard has announced that it will be launching a new model at the 2016 International Multihull Boat Show called the Leopard 43PC.

Replacing the outgoing 39PC, the new arrival will come with twin 260hp engines, a choice of 3 or 4 cabins and two heads compartments.

Key features include an enormous flybridge that can be fully enclosed and a main deck saloon that flows seamlessly into the cockpit when the sliding glass doors are opened.

Below decks owners will be able to specify a master cabin that fills the entire starboard hull or a four-cabin layout that is more suited to chartering.

Shared ownership arrangements with The Moorings are available, meaning owners can use the boat for up to 12 weeks a year and the rest of the time it will be chartered out and professionally maintained.

Franck Bauguil, vice president of yacht sales at Leopard Catamarans, said: “The 43 PC is the logical extension of the very successful 51 PC for private owners and charterers alike.”

Powercat fans hoping to get a first glimpse of the Leopard 43PC should head along to the 2016 International Multihull Boat Show in La Grande-Motte from April 13-17.

Built in South Africa by the Robertson and Caine boatyard, the Leopard Catamaran’s range also includes 44ft, 48ft and 51ft models.
