LIAHONA is a 4-cabin Leopard 42 Catamaran. She is in pristine condition. The present owners have lovingly cared for her while cruising the waters in Mexico and Baja. She then transited up to the Pacific Northwest and the inside passage to Alaska. LIAHONA has had an extensive refit and upgrades in 2011 in the well-known Seattle shipyard. Since her refit, she now sits pretty in St. Petersburg, FL. The owners have decided to sell for health reasons.

Designed by Robertson & Caine, LIAHONA’s layout is 4-cabin layout that offers large salon and bridge-deck. Both forward cabins have an island bed with custom Tempurpedic memory foam mattress with separate shower and head. Both forward heads are electric. Both aft cabins are double berths. Port aft heads have been removed to create a dedicated shower compartment.
