All About Your Leopard 40

Rig Specifications

These are the specifications provided by the designers, but even from the factory, these boats may not be identical. The reason for this is that the sail industry often contracts manufacturing to different sources in order to achieve economies of scale. What this means is – your Leopard 40 may be more unique than you initially thought.

It’s important to note that boats are also frequently customized, so if you suspect that work has been done on yours, it’s best to take your own measurements. When ordering a sail, we will advise you if using the manufacturer’s specifications is appropriate, or if we require you to complete our own measurement forms.

LOA: 39.27 ft / 11.97 m
LWL: 37.50 ft / 11.43 m
S.A. (reported): 1,033.34 ft² / 96.00 m²
Beam: 20.11 ft / 6.13 m
Displacement: 16,821.00 lb / 7,630 kg
Max Draft: 3.87 ft / 1.18 m


The Leopard 40 features a vacuum-bagged resin-infused balsa-cored hull construction that provides strength and stiffness while keeping weight to a minimum. The deck is also cored with balsa and is bonded to the hull with high-strength adhesive, creating a strong and durable monocoque structure.

The hull and deck are further reinforced with high-density foam in high-stress areas, providing additional support and stiffness. The Leopard 40 also features a structural bulkhead forward of the saloon, which adds strength and stiffness to the boat.


The Leopard 40 is designed for speed and performance, with a sleek and modern hull shape and a low profile. The boat features a shallow draft, which makes it ideal for exploring shallow waters and anchoring in remote locations. The boat is also very maneuverable, thanks to its advanced sail plan and responsive steering system.

The Leopard 40 is powered by twin Yanmar 29hp diesel engines, which provide ample power for motoring and maneuvering. The boat also features a high-capacity fuel tank and water tank, allowing for extended periods of cruising without the need for refueling or resupplying.


The Leopard 40 is part of the Leopard line of catamarans produced by Robertson and Caine. The Leopard line has been in production since 1994 and has gained a reputation for building high-quality, innovative, and reliable boats. The Leopard 40 was first introduced in 2014 and has quickly become one of the most popular models in the line.

Sail Plan

The Leopard 40 features a sloop rig with a high aspect ratio mainsail and a roller furling genoa. The mainsail is large and fully battened for maximum performance, while the genoa has a high cut and a foam luff, which improves airflow and reduces drag. The sail area of the Leopard 40 is typically 1,000+ square feet, which is larger than many other boats in its class, providing excellent speed and performance. The high aspect ratio of the mainsail means that it has a taller and narrower shape, generating more lift and less drag than a lower aspect ratio sail.

In addition to the mainsail and genoa, the Leopard 40 also features a self-tacking jib, which makes it easy to handle and maneuver in tight spaces. The sail plan is well-balanced, making the boat easy to handle and control even in challenging conditions.

At PSL we want to be your sailmaker for life, and one of the ways we do that is by keeping your boat measurements and designs on file. This means you can slowly upgrade your sail inventory while still allowing for your sail design to be tailored so that it compliments the previous designs.



The Leopard 40 is a high-performing and versatile cruising catamaran that offers exceptional comfort, performance, and ease of handling. With its advanced construction techniques, spacious and well-designed interior, and impressive sail plan, the Leopard 40 is an excellent choice for sailors looking for a top-quality catamaran that can handle a variety of cruising conditions. Whether you’re planning a long-term cruising adventure or a weekend getaway, the Leopard 40 is sure to provide you with the comfort, speed, and reliability you need to make the most of your time on the water.
