Leopard – 38

Georgia, United States

Designed by Morelli and Melvin and built by Robertson and Caine, the 2011 Leopard 38 has earned awards for the Best Multihull Cruiser and the Import of the Year in 2011 from Cruising World Magazine. All of Cruising World Magazine’s Boat of the Year judges agreed that the Leopard 38 and the Sunsail 384 are well executed and that the designers have provided a good balance between performance, accommodation, safety, and practicality. Cruising World Magazine noted, if you’re looking for a well-designed catamaran that will take care of you no matter where you cruise, the Leopard 38/Sunsail 384 may be just what you had in mind.

With the foregoing in mind, s/v Marshelle is likely the finest example of a 2011 Robertson and Caine, Leopard 38 available. The present owner is a former heavy airline mechanic and this couple’s attention to detail and pride in ownership shows!

She is a 4 cabin 2 head layout. The starboard side head is a manual flush toilet and the port side head is a composting head. Both heads have a stand alone shower separate from the toilets. The port side shower is being used as a laundry room with a washer.  The clothes washer can easily be removed and converted to the original shower, if desired. The forward starboard closet has been converted to a pantry that can be returned to it’s original condition, if desired. The galley has a new drawer refrigerator and drawer freezer as well as an additional well thought out folding counter to the right of the stove to create additional counter space.

The creature comforts in this vessel include, but are not limited to, a full cockpit enclosure, new cockpit cushions, new salon cushions, new hatch lenses and seals, hatch covers, winch covers, helm cover, an electric sea water pump with faucets at the bow and transom, a Spectra Catalina 300 12.5 gph water maker, 700w of solar, a wind generator, an external Honda generator, a power winch at the helm, stainless steel dinghy davits with an electric winch, a washing machine, and additional USB ports for charging have been installed.

In addition to these comfort items, Marshelle has fresh bottom paint applied in May 2023. The engines have low hours and folding propellers.  It is equipped with a 45 lb. Mantus anchor with 200′ of 3/8″ galvanized chain.

It is noteworthy that she has an air draft of 63′ making her Intercoastal Waterway (ICW) friendly.

Marshelle is a turnkey vessel, ready to step on, cast off the lines, raise the sails and make your dream a reality.
