Our Vessel

14 October 2007 | Cape Town
The boat we will be delivering is a 46ft luxury catamaran - a Leopard 46.

These boats are manufactured in Cape Town. We will be delivering this one to the BVIs where the client holds boats available for charter and sale. They have boats in many exotic destinations eagerly waiting for holiday makers to charter them.

The catamaran comes in different configurations having 3 or 4 cabins. We will prepare this boat prior to our departure. All the stantions and stainless steel guard rails are treated with silicone spray and wrapped in rags. This prevents any surface rust from forming on these items, yes stainless steel tarnishes at sea. We change all the halyards and sheets, this task involves a trip up the mast, quite a daunting task for landlubbers. We make up covers from calico sheets and place these protective covers on all the cushions and mattresses on the boat. The surfaces are covered with compressed board and taped into position so that they cannot move and cause scratches.

All of this in an effort to deliver the boat in near new condition after sailing it for some six weeks across the Atlantic.

When we are about one week from our destination we start the clean up process and remove all the protective layers. All of this to arrive at our destination port with a shiny, gleaming boat.
