A look at Leopard – Dive Deeper Into The Expert Craftsmanship Behind our Brand New Vessel

When it comes to sailing, every voyage is a unique blend of adventure, relaxation, and the thrill of open water.  Here at Eclipse Expeditions, we understand that the vessel you choose to board when embarking on your voyage can make all the difference in creating this unforgettable and unique blend of experiences. That’s why we’re excited to introduce you to our brand new vessel, the Leopard 50 sailing catamaran.

The Leopard 50 is not just a boat; it’s a masterpiece of maritime engineering, design and craftsmanship. Crafted with precision and passion, this catamaran offers the perfect blend of performance, luxury, and comfort for your sailing expedition through the Kimberley and along Western Australia’s coastline.



The Leopard 50 sailing catamaran boasts an impressive pedigree. With naval architecture by Simonis & Voogd Yacht Design and exterior and interior design by the world-class team at Robertson and Caine, it’s easy to see why  this vessel was awarded Boat of the Year by Cruising World in 2019. Robertson and Caine’s Cape Town based production yard has been manufacturing vessels for over 30 years so it is no wonder they are in the top three multihull builders worldwide.

From bow to stern, the Leopard 50 is a testament to engineering excellence. Its innovative design features a spacious and stable platform that glides gracefully over the water. With its forward cockpit accessible from the deck saloon, a design feature exclusive to Leopard’s, the vessel is a champion in the category of vessels with outdoor spaces. Whether you’re an experienced sailor or a novice, you’ll appreciate the ease with which the Leopard 50 handles the Kimberley’s coastal waters thanks to its impeccable design and engineering.


As you step aboard the Leopard 50, you’ll immediately sense the attention to detail and commitment to comfort. The interior is thoughtfully designed to provide ample space for relaxation and socialising. Plush seating, elegant furnishings, and large windows that frame breathtaking views create an ambiance of refined luxury. As with the exterior design, the styling throughout the interior has a European elegance to it without compromising on the idea of home style comforts. Spaces are abundant in light whilst providing ample and effective UV protection and all aspects are assembled with utmost precision. Each of the four guest cabins are elegantly appointed, spacious airconditioned staterooms complete with an immaculate ensuite, large hull windows, opening port holes and overhead opening hatches.


With the freedom to customise your sailing experience aboard our brand new vessel, you can chart your own course through the West Australian coastline’s pristine cruising grounds. Whether you’re seeking adventure, solitude, or a bit of both, the Leopard 50 is your ideal vessel to experience the WA coast and it’s treasure trove of natural wonders. Thanks to it’s compact size, Eclipse can take you to unchartered areas that larger vessels simply can’t reach.  Dive into crystal-clear waters, relax on secluded beaches, and marvel at the rugged beauty of the coastline. With our expert crew at your service, your journey is limited only by your imagination. Picture yourself sipping a cocktail on the spacious deck as the sun dips below the horizon, casting a warm glow across the water.

At Eclipse Expeditions, we’re thrilled to offer you the opportunity to embark on an extraordinary sailing adventure aboard the Leopard 50. As you step onto this remarkable vessel, you’re not just setting sail; you’re embarking on a journey of discovery and relaxation, where every moment is designed to leave you in awe.
