Yacht: Blue Leopard

Submit Information on this Yacht



Blue Leopard was built for Mr Desmond Molins who wanted a yacht that would be as fast under power as under sail.    She was to be easily driven, shallow of draught, and handled by a small crew.



Laurent Giles achieved this and she is often spotted competing well in the classic regattas of the Mediterranean.
