Newest Leopard 58 goes PowerFurl

GMT Composites is pleased to announce their involvement with the next Leopard 58 catamaran coming to the US in the Spring of 2014. The new Cat will be outfitted with a carbon fiber GMT PowerFurl boom when she arrives in Florida following her commissioning and voyage under sail from Leopard’s factory in South Africa.

Working closely with the owner’s agent, Allen Schiller of East Coast Yacht Sales, GMT spec'd the new boom to fulfill the owner's desire for easier main sail management. With the gooseneck of this vessel nearly 20' off the water, it is easy to understand why. The Leopard 58 is the flagship of the line and was designed by Robertson and Caine. The PowerFurl boom makes all the sense in the world on catamarans, and we are hoping this trend continues!
