BROKERS REMARKS: There are crewed charter catamarans, and then there is The Big Dog. This nice yacht was completely refitted over the past years, new engines, new generators, new soft goods and shows like a 9.5 out of 10. The same crew has cared for her in an exceptional way for the past 7 years.. This yacht is truly first class and an exceptional value for a boat of her size and amenities. I suggest you seriously consider this yacht before ordering any new cat.The Big Dog has an excellent charter history, and is a proven money maker in near perfect condition.

The Big Dog offers guests 5 very spacious double cabins with en suite heads and showers, and a vanity/desk area. Separate crew quarters with double cabin and en suite head are situated next to a fully equipped galley and utility area to starboard. An additional crew berth is located in the starboard fore-peak.

On the bridge deck, the saloon area has separate dining and lounging seating, and features a navigation station with complete electronics and remote controlled autopilot, plus an entertainment center with high quality stereo system, television and DVD player.

A cocktail bar is situated at the entrance of the saloon area, so drinks can be served directly inside or out in the cockpit area. Exiting the saloon, the huge cockpit provides a spacious guest entertainment area protected by a hardtop fly bridge. This unique feature opens up the cockpit area for dining and relaxing and enables direct walk-through access to the wide aft swim platform, great for diving, snorkeling and access to the dinghy, which can also be used for water-skiing.

Moving up, a staircase leads up to The Big Dogs most unique feature, the spacious fly-bridge with helm electronics. The majority of the sail handling is carried out here, out of the way of the cockpit area,. The primary electric winches are located within easy reach of the helmsman. With comfortable seating, the fly bridge provides excellent visibility at the helm and spectacular panoramic views for your guests. Designed with a powerful rig for excellent performance, the Leopard 62 has a stepped hull, which increases the interior volume while minimizing the wetted hull surface for increased efficiency and speed in the water.

The Leopard 62 also features dagger boards, which can be raised when heading downwind or under power for improved performance, or when mooring, or approaching shallow waters. Lowering the dagger boards improves upwind directional and speed performance.

The yacht has been fully repowered in 2010 and features many other recent upgrades including full new exterior cushions, new refrigeration systems and new furnishings.

This Yacht is truly first class and an exceptional value for a boat of her size and amenities.
