Re: Leopard powercat 51

They do not show the Leopard 47 PC powercat on the website anymore, so maybe they are working on a new one. Only sell the Leopard 39 PC powercat right now.

They produced a power version of the 3900 sail cat. They will probably do the same a produce a power version of the new 48 sail cat.

Then I guess it will look like a Leopard 48 with a larger helm deck uptop

Yes if they stay true to course I believe that is what's coming. I have been on the 48 and It should make one heck of a power cat!

Re: Leopard powercat 51

Talked to Leopard at the Miami show and they are coming out with a 51. Same layout as the new 48 but with a fly bridge. No inside helm, but there is a space where you can rig one.

Here is the fuel use for the current Leopard 47PC with 150HP Cummins.
I chartered one for ten days and used one engine to cruise the BVI.
We used only one engine at 2000 rpm going 7.5 to 9.5 knots depending on sea conditions. She tracked straight as an arrow on autopilot.
Ten day sail and used 46.6 gal of diesel

Cummins no longer builds this engine.

Re: Leopard powercat 51

Hopefully it has an electric grill like their 58' Cat - we were on that a couple weeks ago and the electric is so much better than gas or charcoal that can blow out or be hard to light in strong winds.
