Re: Leopard 51 PC Powercat

the freighter "Lombardia" is scheduled to arrive in the US on Jan 26, and will be offloading 9 Leopard catamarans, including a brand new Leopard 51PC and the Leopard 58 (sail).

The Leopard 51PC is a very popular model, the first 17 yachts have been contracted and deposited. The next available production slot is not till spring 2015.

Please contact me for any questions, Peter Wiersema / Leopard Catamarans

Its a Formica Laminate that all the large Catamaran makers are using.
It wears like iron and is easy to clean.

Thanks Cotemar. I wondered if that was the case. I've installed similar looking wood floors in homes, but that didn't seem to be sensible here.

Re: Leopard 51 PC Powercat

Can anyone provide information on range and fuel burn at various RPM's for the 51 PC and Yanmar 370's? Also, do you need to do anything to non-running engine shaft (i.e., lockdown) if you cruise long distances on 1 engine?

Re: Leopard 51 PC Powercat

And one additional question when cruising at low RPM's, do you need to rev up speed at end of day to avoid carbon build up on the Yanmar 370's?

This cat only needs 82 hp to attain a 9.5 knot hull speed. The 150 hp John Deers were over kill as it was. Why would anyone want the fuel sucking Yanmar 370 hp V8 engines with twin turbos. Just throw money off the back platform into the ocean and you will feel much better. With these engines this boat will cost you in fuel an maintenance.

I used the Leopard 47 PC with the 150 hp Cummins engines and it did 9.5 knots with one engine at 2000 rpm

Didn't they go with the larger engines mainly for the higher top end? I personally have no interest in doing 25knots. I'm not aggressive enough to go out in weather that I would need that kind of speed. Seems that 20kts is plenty to avoid a storm. Much rather have low end fuel efficiency than an extra 5kts top end.

Re: Leopard 51 PC Powercat

The Leopard 51PC now only comes with the Yanmar 370hp engines. 740 total hp.

They do not offer the standard 150hp (300hp total) engines that it was designed with.

It’s sad to see such a nice catamaran design with displacement hulls using such low efficiency engines.

Re: Leopard 51 PC Powercat

Question, I have been told that the cats are delivered on their own bottom. It this not true?
I have checked am down to 3 models to consider, after getting away from these bloody hospitals! And hopefully being fit enough to run one. Like my last big fling. I like the Leo 51, but the fly bride should be offered as a sky lounge as a option. Or do people in the know can explains it better to me. And their range.. The others were a sun reef 60 very nice, good range but. Way up there in $$$$$. Another was horizon they offer both bridge types, but have not seen $$$$ as of yet?. Just planning to call 3 when get released. To travel as to see them and get a feel
