Meet our new yacht! Leopard 50

posted in: Uncategorized | 8

Come on…you could have guessed

When Leopard finally introduced the replacement model for the wildly successful Leopard 48, many people asked if we were going to buy one. Why would we? The 48 is great and it’s all a couple needs. Of course they say that about IPhones and cars as well but when a significantly new model arrives everyone has an urge to upgrade. For us the decision was not about more space but more function. We plan on sailing this yacht far and wide, look forward to another round of outfitting, and like the fact that our model will be the performance version and have a dedicated utility room. The utility room deletes the 4th stateroom but we are doing it (don’t tell our kids) as it’s the one thing we would like to have on our current boat. I know it sounds crazy. Utility room causes entire boat purchase…

Of course they did

 Leopard doesn’t “give” us boats. We pay for them just like all the other customers. Of course they appreciate and know we are helping the brand but these boats are so good they will sell them all on a waiting list with or without SV Happy Together. What they did do was show us early sketches and get our input. If fact, we knew about this boat a year before it was announced and we may be the reason they offer the utility room layout. We appreciate them letting us be one of the first to contract a 50. They even offered us hull number #1 but it was the L version and we really wanted the P version so it wasn’t to be. Our relationship with Leopard is nothing more than a happy customer and a fine manufacturer.

Please enjoy the reveal video of Lennie and I seeing the 50 for the first time.
