< BACK "Blue Leopard"        

2005 - Available in New Zealand until April - then on to the South Pacific Islands.


Twin Screw Ketch

When she was built "Blue Leopard" was the ultimate in Motor/Sailer yachts. Not satisfied with the traditional 50/50 configuration the original owner went to Laurent Giles with his specifications and came away with a yacht that is 75/75;  the sum being more than the original parts. Either under sail or power the extra is provided by the ultimate in style turning heads in any harbour or anchorage the world over.

"Blue Leopard" is now half way around the globe into a World cruise and her highly experienced Captain, Jock Hamilton, who has been with her for many years, is ready with his crew to give you the cruise of a life-time. Whether it is around the stunning beauty of New Zealand or the captivating South Pacific this yacht, over all others, will do it with grace, speed and comfort.

The Master Twin Stateroom boasts 'His and Hers' en-suite shower/toilet and en-suite bathroom (you can fight over who gets priority with the bathroom!). The two Twin Guest Cabins also each have an en-suite shower/toilet as expected of a yacht of this quality.

An exceptional Deck Saloon incorporates a superb Dining Area with a 'Saloon' seating opposite and has great views over the deck and out to sea.

This is a yacht for those who can't sail and for those who can sail. Her Captain and crew are delighted to help their guests enjoy the finer points of a thoroughbred of the sea whilst appreciating the highest standard of cuisine and service the current owner of this yacht demands.
