General Details


BUILDERS REMARKS: The Leopard 45 was Cruising World Magazine's charter boat of the year when it was introduced in 1997.  

BROKERS REMARKS: The present owner of "Merryland" puchased her out of The Moorings La Paz charter fleet in 2005. Since then he has done an almost total refit inside and out. The inventory is extensive for comfortable offshore cruising and she shows the constant maintenance and upgrading this owner has lavish on her. "Merryland" has been a safe and fun yacht for years of sailing throughout the Sea Of Cortez and the west coast of Mexico but now that he is back at his New Mexico residence she has been put on the market and is priced to sell. Don't miss this opportunity to purchase a solid proven offshore catamaran at a great price.

AVAILABILITY: Available now ready to sail off.
