1999 Leopard 38

Rio Dulce, Guatemala


Yacht Overview

Boat Name: 
Gotta Wanna
Boat Type: 
Located in:
Rio Dulce, Guatemala

After having enjoyed many years of fun adventures aboard this great Leopard 38, the longtime owners recently decided to try RV cruising ashore.  

*All pictures after the first are from 14 June, 2021.

This 3-cabin catamaran has the owner's side to starboard, with a large shower aft plus a separate head/washbasin area next to the cabin.  Both heads aboard are recent/clean Nature's Head composting type, increasingly preferred by cruisers for simplicity.

Both engines appear well cared for - note the recent maintenance in Full Specifications.  The boatyard is currently making an estimate to soon properly rebed the salon windows and hatches.  You'll have your choice of new service batteries - the existing will need replacement, and all types/brands can be found or delivered here.   

Your ideal catamaran is already conveniently located in one of the finest cruising areas possible: the pristine Western Caribbean!  Now safely tucked up the beautiful Rio Dulce in Guatemala for hurricane season, same-day cruising from the Rio can have you snorkeling or diving the world’s 2nd largest barrier reef – Belize it!  Or, it’s just an overnighter away to experience the Bay Islands of Honduras (Utila, Roatan, Guanaja).  Farther voyages can have you enjoying Mexico, Jamaica, Caymans, and Panama before returning to the Rio sanctuary year after year, as countless cruisers do.  Great Yacht, Great Location… it’s time to have fun!!
