Sensation is a beautifully appointed three-cabin owner's version built-in and launched 2017. She features an ensuite for each guest cabin, and the owner's suite takes up the entire starboard hull, complete with a desk and wardrobe. Additional berths are available in the forepeak, and there is a convertible saloon table for larger groups.
Unique to the Leopard 48 is the forward cockpit that can be accessed through the saloon and provides easy access to the bow. A massive galley and saloon are perfect for entertaining family and friends. Another seating and dining area is aft that easily hosts more than a dozen crew.
Sensation is powered by two Yanmar 57HP inboard diesel and comfortably cruises at 8-9 knots under motor. She has a Bigfoot inflatable tender for going ashore on davits with an electric winch powered by a 15HP Honda outboard.. The saloon and cabins are fully airconditioned, and a Northern Lights Genset ensures plenty of power for the major appliances.
Sailing is easy on the Leopard 48 with all sheets and lines returning the raised helm. Dual electric Lewmar winches make sail handling effortless. Twin Raymarine chart plotters with autopilot allow for efficient navigation and stress-free cruising.
Sensation began her life with a short term as bareboat charter vessel in the Whitsundays before becoming a syndicate vessel of five owners from August 2020. The syndicate has been professionally managed by Yachtshare in Queensland. The syndicate has reached its conclusion this terrific catamaran is now offered for sale as private vessel.
This Leopard 48 would be well suited for coastal cruising or liveaboard in its current specification. Sensation has completed three seasons cruising up and down the Queensland Coast and an offshore trip to Lord Howe Island. With a few upgrades, the catamaran could also be optimised as a full-time bluewater cruising catamaran for exploring the South Pacific and beyond. The vessel is fully imported to Australia, with all taxes paid.
