2005 Leopard 43

CURIOSITY

OWNERS VERSION LEOPARD 43 CATAMARAN

Leopard catamarans have built a great reputation over the years, and it could be argued that one of the great designs on which that reputation has been built was the Leopard 43, a design that has proven itself capable of taking on the trials and tribulations that come with world cruising.

Curiosity is a star even among its peers and has had its more recent life documented under the care of its current owners who have taken excellent care and pride in their home of six years, during which time they have made their way from the USA to New Zealand.

Over this time Curiosity has seen a great deal of fantastic upgrades and has been outfitted as the blue water sailing vessel that it is, among it’s many upgrades are included:
