Outfitting Leopard 40 PC

We are taking delivery of our Leopard 40 PC, hull #7, at the end of next month. Looking for yard recommendations for the install of solar panels, an additional inverter (no propane!), LFP bank, watermaker, Starlink and possibly a dive compressor. Open to any marina from Myrtle Beach to Brunswick.

The plan is to keep her there from October 1 - early January while the work gets done and then head over to the Bahamas for a few months at the end of January.

Thanks!

Re: Outfitting Leopard 40 PC

If you're willing to bring her over to the West coast of Florida (St Pete), we specialize in this type of upgrade at The Yacht Rigger. Our main market is unique installs specifically catered to off grid cruising and minimizing or removing the need for a generator.

Currently booking into November/December though.

Or go to Onboard Rigging in Marathon, part of the fabulous Florida Keys! Very experienced with the type work you want done, and you’ll almost be in the Bahamas!

Re: Outfitting Leopard 40 PC

Not many marinas in that zone that can likely do all of that. May find more luck in Jacksonville?

We'd love to keep her FL, but insurance dictates otherwise. The issue would be bringing her down with enough time to have everything completed from December 1 - January 11. We have to have her back to the dealer in Ft Lauderdale on that date for the St Pete show.

Yachtrigger are great guys and will take very good care of you. Just take a look at the items they represent - all designed for off-grid cruising.

That would be a little tight timeline wise. You said Ft Lauderdale... do you mean the St Pete boat show? If yes, that's literally a 10 minute motor from our wet slips.

The broker is in Ft Lauderdale and they want her there before the show.

Hmmm. Strange, but no worries. Usually they want the boat at the actual show, must not be the case here.

Re: Outfitting Leopard 40 PC

They want her ahead of time to address any issues. Then they'll do the trip to the show before we pickup again in Ft Lauderdale

Ah ok! That makes sense!
If you can't find someone in the meantime, maybe just plan on coming to us after the show.
