WORK CARRIED OUT IN 2021 TO 2023:
A WORD FROM THE OWNERS:
"Hello World began her life as a charter boat, from the Moorings fleet in Turkey from 2013 to 2018, but following the events of the Arab Spring she was rented very little.
She was therefore loaded on a Cargo in 2018, to make a season in the BVI then was repatriated to the Balearic Islands in Palma de Mallorca for the summer of 2018, where I bought the boat in September 2018.
October 2, 2018 to January 2019, a team of three people including myself worked to refurbish the boat and of course I added a lot of equipment in preparation for a family trip around the world
In January I set off with two Skippers and crew for Martinique where my wife and three children joined me.
In 2019 we stayed in the West Indies until September 2020 where we had the boat careened for 1 month in preparation for our voyage, then left for Venezuela, Colombia and Panama, then crossed towards French Polynesia, where we stayed for a year.
The boat was refitted in September 2021 with a view to its sale.
We sold in early October 2021. The new owner remained in Polynesia, October 2, 2021 until June 2023, when I bought the boat again.
The objective was to offer a luxury skippered charter with a reliable crew. We therefore worked for a month to restore the boat to perfect condition, but unfortunately after just one charter, my captain fell seriously ill and had to return to Europe urgently.
It was then that I contacted Nautilus Yacht Management to finally sell the boat.
Due to our cruising permit coming to an end in French Polynesia, we decided to hire a very experienced Australian skipper to deliver the boat to Fiji before putting her on the market. Hello World arrived in Savusavu in July 2023. As we are currently living in Singapore, our skipper has remained with the boat and visits daily to attend to her maintenance and to small repairs in preparation for the sale."
The Leopard 48 has a spacious cockpit with a large table making it a great dining and lounging area. The table comfortably sits 8, but as we say in the Bluewater cruising community, with friends it is easy to squeeze in more.
Just above the table lies a hatch, which is great to let air in when it’s stifling hot.
Under your feet, Tek-Dek on all surfaces gives the boat a perfectly familiar wooden feel, without the constant maintenance real teak requires. A power-wash once-in-a-while will make it look as good as new.
All cockpit seating has comfy cushions, made from waterproof Sunbrella fabric, ideal for all conditions and easy to clean.
Windows in the saloon provides excellent views in all directions from the cockpit which allows you to take in the beautiful sceneries, but also ensures a good lookout during passages.
Both outside and inside, all lighting is LED.
-Fully enclose-able cockpit
- Hard top bimini with LED lights
- Large table (which is strong enough to stand on)- Seats 10 people
- Cockpit refrigerator
- Ample storage compartments
THE HELM STATION:
One of the greatest advantages of the Leopard 48 is that all sailing and reefing can be made from the helmsman seat in the cockpit, which is convenient and safe. With two electric winches, this also means that adjustments can be easily done by one person alone under all conditions, without having to go on deck or wake another person up at night.
The helm station is really one of the best features of the boat and the envy of most other ones, including bigger cats. It has a wide seat, great 360 view, well spread-out displays, controls and winches and everything necessary to sail the cat from the comfort of the cockpit.
The helmsman seat is extra wide, with a hardtop Bimini which in the tropics is key to keeping cool and staying out of the sun, but also keeps you dry from the rain. The Bimini has built in LED lighting that provides excellent ambiance at night.
Overall, the helmstation is one of the highlights of this catamaran, super functional, well thought out, aesthetically pleasing, roomy and with a perfect 360 degrees view of your surroundings.
-All new Raymarine electronics 2019
-New Raymarine autopilot 2022
-Teleflex engine controls
-Backlit engine rev metres and easy start buttons
SALOON & GALLEY:
The first thing you notice when entering the saloon is the classic Leopard-style wrap around vertical windows lighting up the area and making the boat feel open and airy.
The door which opens on the front cockpit, which we jokingly we call “the front porch”: this feature is unique to Leopards and takes ventilation to another level, as you get steady flow of breeze from the bow to the back.
The sliding door also combines the cockpit and the saloon which makes it feel extra spacious and ideal for having company.
Windows on all sides allow 360 degrees visibility even when cooking and are of great help in avoiding seasickness.
The dark floors paired with aqua-green upholstery (new in 2019, done in Sicily as well), give the boat a fresh, clean feeling.
In the corner of the saloon there is a well sized chart table. Above the chart table is the second, independent, redundant, navigation system and electrical control, VHF, AIS, stereo and 2 USB power outlets for charging.
The galley on the Leopard 48 is wide, and its core is a 4 burner Force 10 stove and separate Force 10 oven.
The countertop is made of Corian acrylics, giving it an exclusive look and makes it very durable. There are plenty of work surfaces in the galley for food prep.
The double sinks make it easy to do dishes. The galley has a large cabinet on the countertop in the corner with lots of room for dishes and cookware.
Under the sink there is plenty of space for cleaning supplies along with a garbage bin.
The Leopard 48 Vitrifrigo fridge is very large which is key for provisioning for longer periods. The separate freezer is as big as the fridge.
The saloon, like all the cabins, has Cruisair aircon. The controller sits on the control panel on the starboard side. The Cruisair has an inverter and can be set up for Heat would you find yourself in colder climates. An excellent equipment to have on a boat which means it can be used in all seasons outside of the tropics.
For added comfort, and privacy, all windows have OceanAir shades.
The control panel is the heart of all electrical utilities of the boat, and holds:
-Northern Lights 9kw generator switch On and Off
-3 independent controls for Cruiseair aircon with new electronic controls 2021. New pumps 2022.
-Mastervolt Battery Monitor, with its shunt installed directly on the batteries in 2019
-All boat’s 230 volts breakers

THE FRONT COCKPIT:
The galley / saloon has a door which opens up on the front cockpit, where plenty of seating for several friends.
The door is a great feature as lets in unbeatable airflow from bow to stern and keeps the boat cool in the tropics. It also has a rollable mosquito net if bugs are out and about, or you just don’t want as much air.
STARBOARD & PORT AFT CABINS:
These spacious, bright and airy cabins are located on both hulls. Walking down 4 steps to gain access, with a solid grip to guide you down.
A large queen size bed with ample headroom catches your eye.
At the head of the bed there is a 12V fan.
The window side of the bed has a small cubby for all your nighttime essentials.
Along the interior side of the bed there are two shelves between the bed and wall which run the whole length and create a more open feel and can hold plenty of nighttime essentials and has 2 USB chargers installed plus a 2 230v plugs.
The large picture window next to the bed lets in lots of light and at night it is always reassuring to look out and make sure the boat is where it is supposed to be.
Next to the picture window there is a porthole which allows a nice airflow, along with the large overhead hatch.
Moving forward under the front of the bed there is a large storage cabinet and under the bed there is lots of space. This is also where each of the diesel tanks are located and where the water heaters lay.
In addition to the closet and cabinet, behind the sliding door there is another cabinet.
There are also storage boxes under the floor.
In total, not including under the bed or floor, there are 4 large storage cabinets; plenty of room for all your cruising essentials.
Also, behind the cabin door is a full-length mirror which is a real bonus on a sailboat.
For climate control, all cabins have Cruisair aircon, a great boon when the heat is stifling, which can be set up as a Dehumidifier only, if one would so choose. All controls are at the Control panel.

Under the bed there is a lot of storage space.
There is a large cabinet under the foot of the bed, one closet on the interior wall, and a bigger side storage space just after the door, as you enter, where we keep all spare pillows and blankets.
A large mirror behind the door.

Every cabin has its own bathroom, so a total of 4 for the boat.
Roof is high, and they are split into the toilet area, sink and the separate shower.
The owners write: "We love that the shower has its own dedicated space and doesn't wet the entire bathroom area."
Behind the mirror there’s a small compartment for toiletries.
The shower has its own door, with plenty of room, with its own showerhead.
The sinktop is in Corian.
All toilets are electric, saltwater Jabsco Quiet Flush with controls on the side.
There are two hatches, one above the toilet and one on the side, allowing nice natural light and airflow to keep away the mould.
- Separate shower stall with wall mount
- Overhead and side hatches
- Jabsco Quiet Flush electric toilet
- Blackwater tank
FOREPEAK & OPPOSITE BOW COMPARTMENT:
Beyond the starboard forward cabin, right in the front you can find the forepeak’s berth, aka 'crew cabin'. It includes a shelf, a removable mattress, a light, a sink, a shower and a manual Jabsco toilet with its own dedicated black waters tank.
The owners have never used it as such but it’s a convenient place to store all their fenders, docking and spare lines.
On the port side there is the same configuration, but this space has no extra berth, and instead is dedicated to storage.
HULL, ON-DECK & EXTERIOR FEATURES:
The main feature of the bow is the front cockpit.
Beyond that there are two huge lockers compartments: one houses the generator and the extra water tank, while the other holds the main water tanks. The owners keep the downwind sails there as well as well odds and pieces.
The trampoline is great spot to relax in a cool breeze and an open working surface which the owners love for launching the Gennaker, kites, drying off equipment, and when anchoring.
The Leopard 48 roof is sturdy on all ends and doesn’t flex. Just in the front, above the front cockpit, there’s a sliding glass panel, which can be used in case of rain.
The boom, a rare occurrence for a cat, has a wang, which keeps it in place no matter the tension of the topping lift.
The roof allows easy access to the boom and sail. It's also a great place to watch the sunset or to get a better angle to spot coral bommies.
The bimini has a dodger that provides excellent rain protection in the cockpit and at the helm.
Dipping under the water from the swim steps, the hull of Hello World is well cared for. The bottom has been antifouled every year, with a regular bottom-scrub to keep her hull clean and smooth.
The owners write: "A clean hull means a faster passage and we take great care to keep her hulls clean and her sides polished and waxed."
ENGINES & CONTROLS:
Two Yanmar 4JH5E 54HP each, diesel engines make up the heart of this boat's propulsion system. The 54HP models are factory upgrades from the standard 39HP.
Each engine is a fully independent system and does not rely on the other engine to run. The great part of this design is that if one engine fails, the other is always available since there are no common points of failure.
The engines are fitted with Yanmar SD50 saildrives and 3 blade folding propellers, which provide extra speed under sail and no noticeable difference when motoring, forward or backwards.
Each engine has its own starting battery and a 300L fuel tank located in the aft cabins on their respective sides (2 X 300L in total). The engines rooms are kept very lean and tidy.
As is typical of Bluewater cruisers who rely on their engines as a matter of survival, the engines on Hello World are maintained religiously and intelligently run.

- Port engine - Yanmar 4JH5E diesel engine - 4691 hours

MAST, SAILS & RIGGING:
The Leopard 48 is a very stable, fast and comfortable boat to sail.
The Leopard 48 has a beautiful and strong rig that drives power through the midship giving a stable and quick ride. With 15 knots on the beam, the boat can easily do 8.5, 9 knots, without stressing either the rig or the boat structure.
Her rigging includes the forestay and two shrouds.
Whole new rigging since 2019: The forestay was replaced in 2019, shrouds and diamond replaced between 2021 et 2022.
The mast is supported by a diamond rig that adds to its rigidity. The cross beam is reinforced with an A frame to properly transfer the force of the forestay.
Hello World is outfitted with a headsail and main sail. The owners took both sails down for a full inspection in Tahiti in late June 2023 prior to their passage to Fiji.
The mainsail and headsail are both reefed from the comfort of the helm with the main sail having two reef points.
All running rigging is run to the helm station where there are three Lewmar Ocean 55 winches, two electric and one manual, which make life a breeze.
Eleven (11!) Lewmar jammers at the helm station help managing all sails.
Included in the sale of Hello World is an asymmetrical spinnaker in good condition and running rigging that accompanies the sails.
The spinnaker is a great for downwind performance, super easy sail, and which can be used for angles from 80 to 180 degrees.

She has two 300-liter tanks that can be filled by 100l/h Schenker Watermaker which operates in 12V. New watermaker pump 2023
Hello World has both room temperature and a hot water system. While at the dock you might use the electric water heater or at sea, the port engine will heat the water heater and provide you with a great hot shower.

ELECTRICS, ELECTRONICS, COMMUNICATION & NAVIGATION:
Modern sailing necessitates great electronics, communication and navigation.
The electrical system is the backbone of all of these systems. Redundancy and sustainability are key: Hello World makes power primarily from its rigid solar panels, its Silentwind wind generator, a 9kw Northern Lights generator and alternators on each engine. The combination of these make daily living and sailing a dream.
4 X 200W sola panels new in 2019, plus 3 additional 440W panels new in 2021.
8 X 200 Amp hours AGM batteries New end of 2021. These batteries provide all the house power necessary for all systems onboard.
Charging of the house and engine batteries can also be accomplished with shore power and the Magnum 2.7kv charger/inverter.
This Leopard 48 is able to be plugged in and charged with 230v systems. Additionally, Hello World has lots of different shore power adapters so you'll never worry when you pull into a new marina.
There are outlets in each cabin and a few around the galley, saloon and chart table for easy access. We pay particular attention and do regular checks on electrical wiring.
Navigation and communication are made easy with Hello World Raymarine integrated system. Raymarine new end of 2022. All other Raymarine navigation electronics new in 2019. AIS type B. Epirb.
All of these instruments work together and are conveniently displayed at the helm station making it easy for you to make well informed decisions.
Spotting other boats is easy with AIS, radar and a high helm position. All these systems are also connected to the boat's Wifi - streaming all data to all devices connected.
The VHF is conveniently located at the chart table next to an additional chart plotter.

Having a capable tender is key for exploring the areas surrounding where Hello World is anchored. As they say, the boat is your home, the dinghy is your car.
The dinghy very easily raises and lowers on a designated electric winch motor on the cockpit roof with dyneema lines replaced a few weeks ago; the strong steel davits make launching and putting the dinghy away only a few moments.
To further secure it during long passages, Hello World has two cleats on the back of the boat where it can be further tethered with spring lines, keeping the dinghy in place and steady even in big swell conditions.

· Outboard: 2 strokeYAMAHA 25HP Autolube (Both new 2019).
