Alexis3 is a 2008 model Leopard 46 built in 2007. She was with the Moorings in the Seychelles until 2012 when she was purchased by the previous owner and kept there until we bought her in 2017 to replace our Leopard 45 Cool Runnings we lost in Irma. We sailed Alexis3 3,000 miles to Cape Town in December 2017 and spent 6 months until July 2018 doing an extensive refit and refurbishment as listed below.

We left Cape Town on 7 July 2018, and arrived in Grenada on 28 August after a wonderful Atlantic crossing. The Leopard 46 has proved to be a superb cruising cat with her high bridge deck eliminating all slamming. She sails beautifully at all points of sail and can maintain 30 degs off the apparent wind in a good breeze.

The solid build, high bridge deck, large water and diesel tanks, water maker, and excellent accommodation make her a true blue water cruiser or charter boat.

We brought Alexis3 back to the Caribbean to continue our chartering business. But after 14 years in the Caribbean, we have decided it is time to return to our home and family in South Africa.

Alexis3‘s $100,000+ refit and refurbishment must rank her at the top of the list of 46’s available on the market.

One of the many upgrades was the repainting of the dark cherry wood of the saloon and passages, a light off-white, matching the ceilings, which together with her new linen herring bone upholstery and new blond oak vinyl flooring throughout, create a light bright modern finish.

All the cabins have been upgraded with new mattresses, twin ceiling fans and the heads with new shower and faucet fittings.

The cockpit of the 46 is probably the most spacious of all boats of this size. This with the all-around sun screens and the fully enclosed helm station, comfortable seats and scatter cushions make it a superb lounging area in all conditions,

The decks are wide and easy to negotiate and the new trampoline, large foredeck and generous window steps provide comfortable and safe seating and lounging while sailing and at anchor.

The list of upgrades provide the full extent of the work that has been done on Alexis3 and check out the pics which are all recent.

Not all sellers use a broker, but it is very beneficial for buyers to utilize the knowledge and negotiation expertise of a broker. There are many facets involved in purchasing a yacht, for example; depending on where the boat is registered, there can be obstacles in documentation, surveys and more. Additionally, using a broker is not an extra expense as it should be worked into the price of the boat.
