YEBO presents a rare opportunity to purchase beautifully maintained, ready to sail away Leopard 48. YEBO is the award winning vessel built by Robertson and Caine in Cape Town, South Africa. Focused on blue water performance and comfortable living, the 48 is an exciting addition to the Leopard line. The vessel features a large forward cockpit seating area with direct access from the saloon door, unique to the Leopard range. Other exterior features include a large and open aft cockpit with large table. A raised helm station, providing panoramic visibility, allows for excellent blue water manoeuvrability.

The Leopard 48 Yebo was originally a Crewed Version in the Mooring's fleet and has only ever been sailed by qualified crew. Her current owners took delivery in the British Virgin Islands and have spent the last 2 and half years exploring the Bahamas, Carribean, Central America and enjoying the waters and Islands around the South Pacific before arriving into Australia.

Yebo's electrical system has been fully revamped by her current owner, converting to 220v (via Victron Quatro 5kw inverter) and increased AC plug points and USB chargers throughout the boat. Plug points are all international plugs and able to accept any male plug. There is increased safety with 10mA leakage breakers on plug points near the sink and outside. 2600w of solar on a large stainless solar arch to charge 900ah lithium (3x300ah Kilovault with internal BMS). The system was all professionally installed to ABYC standards and has added hardware such as the Lynx shunt and Cerbro control unit with full digital display and control panel at the electrical panel. Further additions include Balmar alternator regulators to ensure the vessel can charge safely off the alternators and can get between 1000w-1600w per alternator. There is also the option to use house batteries to start the engines (manually controlled in the engine bay) in emergency.

The Leopard 48 YEBO is the perfect opportunity for a couple or family who are ready to explore. Her shallow draft, swim ladder, davit system and stability makes her ideal for cruising and diving the beautiful coral reefs of Australia and beyond.
