McConaghy sailing yacht Leopard 3 sold

27 April 2021By Malcolm Maclean

The 33 metre McConaghy sailing yacht Leopard 3 has been sold with the buyer introduced by Dennis Frederiksen of Fraser.

Built in GRP by Australian yard McConaghy Boats to a design by Farr Yacht Design, Leopard 3 was delivered in 2007 as a high-performance yacht. A full refit in 2012 saw her gain three en-suite double cabins and two singles, accommodating eight guests.

The asking price of Leopard 3 has been withheld

She is arguably the most high profile racer cruiser yacht in existence and has a trophy cabinet packed with silverware, having taken first place at the 2016 Rolex Maxi Cup and the Voiles de St Tropez, among a host of other regattas and races worldwide.

The concept behind her was to create a yacht with a radical dual purpose: high performance for racing with a canting keel and twin daggerboards, combined with excellent internal volume, accessories and amenities to meet the demands of the top-end charter market. The owner focuses on chartering her to keen sailors and corporate clients wanting to enjoy high-performance sailing and she generates a steady income year-round.

She is capable of speeds in excess of 35 knots under sail, while a 230hp Yanmar diesel engine gives her a cruising speed of 10.5 knots under power.

The asking price of Leopard 3 has been withheld.
