The Difference Between The Moorings and Leopard Leopard Catamarans

How did The Moorings Yacht Brokerage and Leopard Brokerage come about? The short answer is to fulfill the needs of the market created by The Moorings Charter and Leopard Catamarans. Leopard Catamarans and The Moorings share the same catamaran manufacturer, Robertson and Caine located in Cape Town, South Africa. R&C created catamarans that are easy to sail, maintain, and tough enough to cross oceans, in fact for many years these boats were delivered worldwide on their own bottoms proving they are as tough as they are fun. After the charter fleets were filled with these performance-driven blue water cruising yachts customers began to inquire about privately owning these robust boats and so the brand Leopard Catamarans was created. 


Growing popularity of charter boats

As The Moorings and Sunsail Charter operations expanded to what they are today, clients needed help selling their yachts after they were released from the ownership program. So The Moorings Yacht Brokerage was born. Working hand in hand with Yacht Ownership sales, we are able to provide one on one services and assist our charter yacht owners in the next phase of their ownership journey. We sell the yachts quickly so the owners do not incur the expense of owning a boat in a faraway place. While the boat is in the fleet owners do not pay for normal yacht upkeep costs, thus it is in their best interest to sell the yacht before the end of contract terms if they do not plan on sailing the vessel home. We are also able to take a Moorings or Sunsail vessel in on trade for a new vessel in the fleet, which makes charter ownership in The Moorings or Sunsail fleets a “no brainer.”


Catamaran knowledge

As the years passed Leopard Catamarans grew into the strong brand it is now and Leopard owners required support in selling their used yachts. Who better to assist in the marketing of their privately owned Leopard Catamarans than the worldwide dealer themselves? Leopard Brokerage exclusively sells Leopard Catamarans, making our agents experts on these boats.


A growing family

We are excited about the next phase of The Moorings Yacht Brokerage and continued expansion of Leopard Catamarans Brokerage on the private market as the demand increases. There has never been a better time to get out on the water and fulfil your lifelong dreams of Sailing off into the sunset. Let us help you find your perfect yacht today!

Over the next 25 years he developed a passion, not just for sailing, but also for racing. Most of his time was spent cruising/racing in Galveston Bay. However, some of his favorite sailing destinations are the British Virgin Islands, Belize, and Cyclades in Greece. Finally able to mesh his sales career with his passion for sailing, Patrick has been with The Moorings Yacht Brokerage since 2013.
