This 2005 Leopard 40 was designed by the now famous team of Morrelli and Melvin. S/V 'Chantemer' was built in Cape Town, South Africa by Robertson and Caine in 2005. These boats are light and fast. The ligher weight allows her to ride easily over waves and her sharp bows and clean underwater profile cut cleanly as well as minimize drag. Visibility is excellent over the coachroof and a sliding door in the hard cockpit bimini makes it easy to keep track of sail shape.
The Leopard 40 is relatively fast and enjoys an excellent reputation. Much equipment has been replaced, revised and added.
'Chantemer' was a charter boat with Moorings for 5 years . Then, she was bought by another charter company during 3 years, but she wasn't maintained as well. That's why we replaced most of equipment when we bought 'Chantemer' in 2014. Since mid 2014, we are sailing across Caribbean, beginning from Florida. 'Chantemer' is now waiting for a new owner and should stay around Saint Martin in the Caribbean.
She is a beautiful, spacious and comfortable vessel with space for up to ten persons. Sne's now ready to set sail with her new owner. Reason for selling? End of our family travel.
