Catywampus is a Leopard 38, known for providing a good balance between performance, accommodation, safety, and practicality.
During the storms of 2017, this yacht was safely located in Grenada and was not subject to any hurricane damage.
With her generous sail plan and stepped hull design, this yacht provides excellent performance under sail. The cat is stiff but also relatively light, combined with an easily managed total working sail area of 990 square feet. Twin fixed keels and spade rudders allow owners to sail in water that's 4 feet deep, but they still allow superb maneuverability, upwind performance, and speed under sail.
The hardtop bimini over the cockpit provides superior protection from the elements and also offers a stable working platform. Mounted on the hardtop bimini are two semi-flexible solar panels. The raised helm to the starboard side provides great visibility for the skipper plus helps to create more space in the cockpit. Forward is the trampoline area, perfect for soaking up the sun in the afternoons with a book!
Stainless steel electric davits make stowing the dinghy easy.
Catywampus has the the four cabin, two head layout. The cherry-finished interior is attractive without excess garnish. Cabins provide practical shelving, hanging lockers, seats, and good lighting and ventilation through fixed ports, opening ports, and hatches. The berths are quite roomy and secure. Engine noise is minimized because the engines are mounted aft and separated from the cabins by a watertight bulkhead rather than mounted under the aft bunks, as they are on some other cats. Onboard there are also two Cruisair 16000BTU air conditioning units which can be powered once connected to shoreside power.
In February 2021, the vessel was fitted with a brand new mainsail.
Catywampus is currently in Conch Charters fleet.
If you're looking for a well-designed cat that'll take care of you no matter where you cruise, the Leopard 38 may be just what you had in mind.
