REMARKS: The price drop to $185 K now confirms that this seller is
very motivated to get her sold! Considering the following has been
installed new in recent times; full sized gen set, both
sails, standing rigging, genoa furling system, all sea cocks and
thru hulls and much, much more, as well as being
fully air conditioned throughout, this cat now
offers great value to the right buyer.
As a boat that has been used for charter and sailing school work all
of her life, she is undoubtedly showing more than average cosmetic
wear and many minor repairs could still be implemented for perfection.
However, considering all her significant, costly and
meaningful upgrades, we feel that the amount of
time and effort now required to have her in good shape and
ready for more cruising is very minimal compared to the tens
of thousands recently invested by her owner in the important “bones”
of the boat (that many Leopards of this vintage will
require addressing). Yes, she does also have high engine hours,
however, during a very recent survey the engines started
easily, ran without significant smoke etc., once again
highlighting the impressive longevity of Yanmar engines that have been
regularly used and regularly serviced.
If you are a buyer that is handy, or someone that is not bothered
about the more minor issues, but appreciates a cat that has had the
vast majority of the big tickets items recently replaced, yet is very
attractively priced, then this is a cat that should be seriously considered.

were also spent cruising offshore which, combined with his other sailing, totals

as their pastime, combined with his strong service ethics and keenness to work
towards the smoothest transactions possible, has allowed him to build a loyal
