We’re proud to announce the ‘Electric Leopard’ as the newest addition to the OCSC Fleet! The ‘Electric Leopard’ (‘eLeopard’ for short) uses an environmentally friendly diesel-electric propulsion system. The 43′ Catamaran was built in Cape Town, South Africa in 2005. After it was launched, it made the 8,000 mile trip from Cape Town to Tortola, BVI, where it spent two years in The Moorings’ charter fleet. Since 2007, eLeopard has logged 7,700 miles, most recently from the British Virgin Islands via the Panama Canal to Emeryville, CA.
‘Electric Leopard’ will now be available for private skippered charter. This will offer sailors the opportunity to enjoy the speed and luxury of premier catamaran sailing while experiencing the latest in green boating technology.
“We are proud to have ‘Electric Leopard’ join our fleet,” stated Anthony Sandberg, President of OCSC Sailing. “We felt an electric catamaran was a perfect match with our endeavors to operate as green and energy-conscious as possible.” We will be offering an advanced course based on the eLeopard to teach people how to sail the larger catamarans they will likely encounter when booking charter vacations worldwide. We’ll have more information on this course very soon. The eLeopard will also be available for Private Lessons.
Be sure to visit us and the ElectricLeopard at the Strictly Sail Boat Show in Oakland April 15-18. We’re located in the new “Green Boating Zone.”
