FURTHER UPGRADED AGAIN BEFORE CARIBBEAN PASSAGE TO PANAMA AND AGAIN BEFORE PACIFIC CROSSING.

----------------------

This boat presents beautifully, has been upgraded for serious cruising between 2017 and 2022, as well as maintained in beautiful condition. The list of safety, cruising equipment, tools and spares is impressive.

As per our company policy for offshore cruising vessel, Living Daylight is to be fully surveyed at the end of September by an independent Australian surveyor who will fly to Fiji especially for this purpose. The report will be available on request. Small cosmetic work needed, such as salon upholstery and bathroom mirrors which have corroded around their outer edge.

Read on for the full description!   A WORD (OR TWO!) FROM THE OWNERS: "This Leopard 48 has proven to be the perfect boat and home for (all of) us as a family, allowing us to travel to remote places of the world with great comfort and with everything we need. When we first started looking, as sailing newbies we were pretty agnostic about which cat would be a better fit as we had never owned any boat before. So, we focused more on the “bones” of the boat, how it had been treated, how we’d fit, and how it would suit our needs and become our home rather than a specific model. We went to all the boat shows, looked and poked at all catamarans we could find, got properly confused, but we managed to get a feeling for what we would like and what wouldn’t be necessary. When this cat came out for sale in Greece, we specifically asked to visit and be able to talk to the owner. We did a lot of research and realized a Leopard 48 would fit the bill perfectly, as a proven, reliable, offshore cruising catamaran that sails well and looked very safe as we were going cruising with three kids. Long story short, we have never regretted the decision or been in doubt that Living Daylights was the right boat for us. Being a cruising catamaran, this 4 cabins Leopard 48 focuses on the comfort of living onboard without sacrificing solidity, good speed under sail, and easy access to all compartments. It is a 2013 boat, the first of the Leopard modern designs, which have been copied down the line for other later models.  Upon seeing it firsthand, the first things we noticed were the spacious feel, the cleanliness of the design, the huge cockpit table, room for everybody…even when one needs some alone time. Not surprisingly it’s a good sailboat, doesn’t require much wind, handles strong winds well, and is easily handled by one person alone safely from the cockpit. How safe? Get this: just before leaving I had gifted my wife with a new, all bells and whistles Goretex sailing jacket. I thought … a n

The Cockpit

The Leopard 48 has a compartmenty cockpit with a large desk making it a great dining and lounging area. The desk luxuryably sits 8, but as we say in the Bluewater cruising community, with friends it is easy to squeeze in more.
Just above the desk 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 vessel a perfectly familiar wooden feel, without the constant service real teak requires. A potential-wash once-in-a-while will make it look as good as fresh.
All cockpit accommodation has comfy padding, made from waterproof Sunbrella fabric and secured with velcro, making them ideal for all qualitys and easy to clean.
Windows in the bar 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. 
When entertaining friends, Living Dayillumination has a great Bose sound unit with speakers in the cockpit and in the bar.
Under the helmsman chair steps, there is a cockpit Vitrifrigo refrigerator with freezer included, because, as the owners say "you want your beers ice-cold!". Just on top of it, there’s a fire extinguisher, refilled in 2022. 
Under one bench of the cockpit there is a vented safe that safely stores 3 propane bottles. Next to it is a compartmenty stowage safe which we use for all chemicals, washing utilities, buckets, etc.
Under the bench by the sliding door there are 4 X AGM 240 V house batteries, installed in 2018 and kept in immaculate quality. The owners write: "How immaculate? Well, when on passage on sunny days, with all electric units on, refigerator, freezer, autopilot, blueprint GPS, tracking, inverter 24/7, there is no reason to fire up the generator to recharge the batteries as solar and gust are enough to keep them full."
Further, the owners had made some pouches in Sunbrella tailored under the helmsman chair which hold fishing machinery, sunscreen and whatever you want to keep at hand.
Living Dayillumination came with Sunbrella shades to keep out of the sun, but while cruising the owners felt it was not sufficient. They write: "In Sicily a local artisan made us a full cockpit Sunbrella enclosure with both full mosquito nets and clear plastic, independently rollable, which makes the cockpit dry and usable for all seasons and lets air in even when the bugs are out for blood. On top of that, having snaps on the bottom, it’s a great safety feature, as you can close the cockpit completely during direction (but still let air in) and there’s no chance whatsoever of anybody falling off the vessel however challenging the sea state is. And that is a big relief when you have kids onboard. We have not seen such an enclosure anywhere else or on any other vessel since we started cruising. You’ll love it as well."
Finally, on the roof of the cockpit, above the desk, a beautiful wooden rack lets you store all your fishing gear safely out of everybody’s way but conveniently close by when you want to fish.
Both outside and interior, all, beaming is LED, with original Quick spares onboard.
Last but not least and in typical Bluewater cruising spirit, the owners devised a rainwater collection unit for all rain falling on the roof, drilling two small holes on the sides and fitting two small transparent plastic tubes which direct water out, unless you want to fill up some containers and bring them in. 
Highillumination:
-Fully enclose-able cockpit
- Hard top bimini with LED illumination
- Large desk (which is strong enough to stand on)- Seats 10 people
- Built in Bose player with four exterior speakers
- Cockpit refrigerator
- Ample stowage compartments 

The Helmstation

One of the greatest advantages of the Leopard 48 is that all sailing and reefing can be made from the helmsman chair in the cockpit, which is convenient and safe. With two electric winche
