If you are looking for more indoor and outdoor living spaces without a compromise in performance, the Leopard 50 has the ideal layout of a sailing catamaran. This includes a lounge area, table, sunbed, and shade awning. The Leopard 50 exterior styling has been completely revamped to give the hull a sophisticated look. The interior offers multiple layout configuration with your choice of 3, 4 or 5 cabins, a utility room for live aboard and an extensive options list.

The strongest link – Mantus swivel is stronger than its corresponding Grade 40 chain. (WLL is 1/5 UBS)
Integrated shackle design completely eliminates side loading making this the safest swivel on the market.
The pin on the chain side of the swivel is the strength limiting part since the geometry of the chain determines the pin size. Mantus swivel is the first to feature an oblong pin to maximizes the pin strength, with the aid of computer modeling and physical testing we truly created a swivel that is the strongest link.
Note the innovative shackle bolt design – no shackle dog! This slim hex head design (with holes for safety wire) offers a slimmer profile making it easier for translating through your bow roller.
