I am following their progress, any idea what happened to the engine / engines, and their trip is of great interest to me.

The position this morning shows them some 4220 nm from Annapolis - if they have 31 days they need now to average 143nm/day , (6 kn/h average means good chance of getting to the boat show) - The wind has returned and the Spinny flying.

Go baby go !!!. It would be nice to see the 38 at Annapolis, which due to economic reasons I will miss for the 1st time in 5 years. I think that little 38 arrives in the market at a perfect time, if it is priced correctly, anyone have an idea as to the price point?

Hi Gavin,

Peter Wiersman of Leopard Catamaran Sales says the Base price is US $269K and with 0ptions that can take the price not far below $400K.

Ouch, it may be positioned correctly but I doubt that it is priced correctly

Gavin, just curious as I have no idea what the expected price for this range should be currently. I took a quick look (1 broker site, so take with a grain of salt), and the 4 to 7 year old boats in the size range were running around $200K - $220K. The Leopard 38 is probably running about $350K for a comparable boat new. What is your opinion on what the price point should be? Thanks.

Leo 38 should be off Fortaleza Brazil late Thursday night 10th Sept - no indication if they are going to stop to get a diesel fill up or continue the race to get to the boat show in time.

Averaging 6.7 knots SOG in a counter current.
