Our relationship with the factory is unrivaled. Any parts that need to be special ordered can be done easily through us. Considering we are the exclusive dealer of Leopard Catamarans, we can advise surveyors and clients on how the boat is built and designed, unlike any other brokerage who is not privy to that information. The information we house can make or break a deal.
