Whensday, a 2008 Leopard 47 Powercat listed with HMY Yacht Sales for $429,000, is designed by naval architects Morrelli and Melvin and built by South African boatbuilders Robertson and Caine, a company known for its expertise in power-cat construction.

The Leopard 47 Powercat integrates an open-plan layout with exceptional interior volume, offering a comfortable cruising platform catamaran that combines spacious accommodations with admirable performance. Leopards are perennially popular vessels with private owners as well as charter enthusiasts.

Whensday’s hardtop-equipped flybridge provides unobstructed sightlines. There is a centerline helm station and the vessel’s easy close-quarters handling is aided by the power-cat’s hull design and the distance between the port and starboard props. Its piloting-friendly nature makes the Leopard 47 Powercat a popular option for owner-operators. With wrap-around seating for eight, wet bar, cooler, sink and drink holders to spare, the flybridge is a perfect spot for entertaining guests while catching a few rays.

The following helm upgrades enhance the navigation experience:

  • 2021 Raymarine autopilot
  • 2021 Raymarine 12″ Hybrid touch GPS
  • 2022 Raymarine Radar

The cockpit has additional seating with a table for guests, which is shaded by the flybridge overhang. Guests can raise or lower screens to adjust the amount of sunshine. Take a dive off the swim platform, or lower the tender into the water and cruise off to your own private beach for the afternoon. Owners will appreciate the extra stowage available in separate compartments and under seats on both the aft deck and flybridge. 

Step through a sliding glass door into the salon and galley where there’s an L-shaped settee with table for indoor dining forward. The galley is aft with a wraparound cocktail bar, Force 10 gas stovetop and oven, Whirlpool microwave, double stainless-steel sinks, and cabinets above and below countertops. This space is ready for family meal prep and entertaining friends. Starboard of the dining area is a navigation station with a VHF radio.

Settle down in the evening in one of four queen-berth-equipped staterooms, all with en suite heads. Each stateroom has air conditioning and considerable stowage space for extended cruising. Two of the staterooms can run air conditioning during the evening time via solar power, reducing the load on the 11.5 kW Onan generator. There are 10 Lithium batteries that store the energy collected via the hardtop’s solar panels.

Where is Whensday located? The yacht is currently lying in Stuart, Florida.
