About this Leopard Express Hardtop

This Leopard 23M Express Yacht must be seen to be truly appreciated. No expense was spared on her complete and custom updates over the years. Interior is flawless and has Makore wood veneers and select marble and granite. Updated stainless steel Gaggenau appliances, custom lighting including a fiber optic overhead "Star" panel, and extensive use of soundproofing throughout the boat. 

Her twin MAN 1200 hp diesel engines have been rebuilt and provide a quiet, solid, comfortable 26mph cruise and 30mph top end. Pretty impressive for a yacht that is 80ft LOA. She shows like a much newer yacht and is a must see if you are interested a 70-80' Express Yacht! (New Bottom Paint, and Prop Speed June 2017)

Sellers have found their next boat and approved $100,000 price reduction. Offers are encouraged!
