Beautifully presented version of the immensely popular Leopard 40. Owner's version. Huge refit in 2015 and 2016. Cruised by a couple through the Pacific for the past 18 months and ready for you to start living your dream!


Libertalia is a premium Owners Version Leopard 40 that has been exceptionally maintained and recently fitted out to live comfortably whilst sailing off the grid. She is genuinely ready to sail the world and is currently cruising in the South Pacific Islands. A major fit out was conducted in mid 2015 and another major maintenance round in mid 2016. This means that the extensive cruising equipment list is practically new, but also thoroughly bedded in!
The owners, a cruising couple, have lived aboard for the last 18 months, spending well over $100,000 to replace, reinforce and add everything required to make a floating home comfortable, safe, and enjoyable whilst still maintaining a light and fast sailboat! As a real offshore cruising platform, she has been fitted with a plethora of modern safety equipment and carries a vast array of spares and ancillary cruising equipment.    
This Leopard 40, designed by the same team that produced the Gunboat, is an exceptional cruising boat. She sails well and can be easily sailed single handed or by a cruising couple or family. All of the plumbing, electrical, and mechanical systems have been designed with ease of maintenance in mind.
The 3 cabin owners version provides considerably more space in the master suite aft, an office area amidships, and a voluminous bathroom forward that includes a huge shower with standing and sitting room for two! ☺. The entire owners ‘wing’ can be discreetly closed away, creating complete privacy and the luxurious feeling of being able to roam undisturbed while guests or children enjoy the rest of the boat.
The boat is presently located in New Zealand.

This outstanding vessel is a very reluctant sale due to other commitments. Libertalia is priced to sell immediately.
