There may be some merit in the statement that cats are better built today because of the advances in building technique. A lot depends on the individual builder. I think that a lot of the new designs built for the charter trade are absolutely hideous. Of course this is only my opinion and I'm sure a greater percentage of people actually like the progression in the condo cats. I personally see the beauty in a sleek cat with thin hulls that is a great performer. To each his own.

I'm still wondering how they get anywhere fron SA. Like, what is the range and optimum speed and the fuel consumption? Which all leads to how much extra fuel they have to carry. And where is the first reueling stop after the crossing? I'm visualizing several jerry cans put somewhere. Maybe way more then several. Just trying to wrap my head around it. Thanks.

Re: Leopards 2012 Newport Boat Show Price List

The Leopard 47 power cat has 317 gal. fuel tank
Comes with two Cummins 150 hp engines.
We charted one this year in 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.

900 miles max range at 6.5 knots

Holy moly. At that rate the L49 would have to carry an extra 1000 gallons MOL to get from Capetown to Rio. I assume it's the same proportionally for the smaller powercat. That's a lotta jerry cans.
