Sea Life - 50ft Leopard Catamaran

Now you don’t need to be a millionaire to live the lifestyle! Escape Yacht Charter’s brand new Leopard 50L arrives at Hervey Bay this year, ready for your charter from early October 2018.

With little change out of $1.5 million to purchase a vessel of this calibre, chartering is the next best thing to owning one. But if you’re on the lookout for a Leopard catamaran, an Escape Yacht charter could be the perfect opportunity to try before you buy.

Direct from one of the world’s leading boat builders, the new Leopard 50L has all the mod-cons, high tech navigational equipment and exudes luxury and style you’ve only dreamed of.

The first thing you’ll notice when you step aboard is the quality. With full wrap-around, 360 degree view panoramic windows in the saloon and an overhead skylight, you’ll be surrounded by light and the wonderous sights of the Fraser Coast, Great Barrier Reef and beyond.

With all the highly acclaimed features of its award-winning predecessors and some innovative additions, this next generation Leopard is the perfect floating platform for an escape of a lifetime.

The Leopard 50L features modern and elegant interior design and a generous, ergonomically-designed saloon and galley. There are four ensuited queen-sized cabins, all with climate control.

Spacious, practical and protected from the elements, the aft deck offers a roomy entertainment area with extra refrigeration, seating for the whole crew and an uninterrupted transition through the open plan saloon to the forward cockpit.

The Leopard 50L’s raised helm offers excellent visibility with hard top and clears for protection from the elements. Latest navigational equipment includes GPS, radar, AIS, mast-mounted camera and more. The electric halyard/sheet winches make sailing effortless.

The flybridge is accessed by floating stairs leading up from the aft cockpit. The Leopard 50L model has a lounge area, table, sunbed and speakers, along with a shade awning to keep you cool in summer.

Other features include state-of-the-art entertainment system with four zones, water-maker, generator and solar power. A signal booster provides mobile phone and internet service up to 70km offshore.

Share with your partner for a romantic getaway or a fun-loving group of family or friends; the Leopard 50L has room aboard to sleep up to 11 crew in comfort and style.
Absorb the beauty of nature and the freedom that comes with chartering your own private yacht and explore the azure coastline of Queensland and the Great Barrier Reef.
Depart from the World Heritage listed Fraser Coast and whale watching capital of the world, Hervey Bay, or pick-up and deliver your vessel to/from any Queensland port, e.g. depart from Fraser Coast (Hervey Bay) and hand-over in Cairns, or vice versa.

You’re the skipper, you plan the experience, at your own leisure and pace. Infinite opportunities for adventure and discovery await, limited only by your imagination. Fraser Island, the Great Sandy Strait and north to the Great Barrier Reef offer a magnitude of safe waterways and quiet, picturesque anchorages which can be yours alone to enjoy.
Soon there will be two Leopards available for extended charter to Lady Musgrave Island and beyond – the new Leopard 50L and ‘Ying Yang’, the Leopard 46 which is currently operating in the Escape Yacht Charter’s fleet.

Share the experience and adventure of a lifetime with a large group of friends, corporate group or business colleagues and charter more than one vessel. The option of hiring a skipper, guide or instructor for extended cruises is an option.

Bookings are now available on the brand new Leopard 50L so plan ahead. This cool cat is already making huge waves in the boating industry around the world and demand, especially leading into Queensland’s spectacular spring and summer, will be unprecedented.

Offshore/coastal cruising/blue water charters require direct contact with management prior to booking as special terms and conditions obviously apply.
Escape Yacht Charters will soon launch its own accredited sail training academy. Keep an eye on the website for more information over upcoming months.
