FRESH WATER TANK
Oceana was one of the last Leopard 42’s built before the change to the Leopard 43. This is the 3-cabin owner version, never chartered and actively used over its lifetime. It is currently on the hard in Deltaville, VA. This vessel is well equipped for offshore passage making & long-term cruising to which her history will attest. It is sleek and sails well, yet is roomy and comfortable for a family and easily manageable for a couple. The current owners have spent 5 months in the Bahamas and Florida last winter.
The first owners sailed largely on the Chesapeake Bay; the second owners owned the boat for 12 years, cruising extensively throughout the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico before selling in early 2019 to a family who sailed the East Coast of the US in the summer of 2019. The current owners purchased Oceana in late 2019, sailing to Florida for the winter of 2019/20. With the advent of Covid, Oceana was berthed in Manteo, NC for most of 2020/2021, where numerous upgrades were made to systems. In the winter of 2021-22 the owners set out again for 5 months of cruising in Florida and the Bahamas.
In July & August of 2022, in preparation for the sale of the boat, the bottom & boot-stripe were stripped and barrier coated. Bottom has been anti-fouled and boot-stripe repainted. Hull sides compounded and waxed.

The salon is accessed through a French door from the cockpit. The galley is to port, with the work area forward and the large fridge/freezer adjacent to the door. The raised counter between the galley and salon has been coated with shades of aqua resin. The salon is to starboard with a custom table that has been cut to fit the curve of the settee. The table is also coated with aqua resin, providing a delightful pop of color. The nav station, electrical panels are tucked in to a recess on the starboard side of the entryway.
The owner’s hull is to starboard with queen-sized bunk aft, a large overhead hatch, storage and access to the engine beneath. In the passageway storage along the hull at the base of the stairs, a desk on the midships side & storage. The head is forward, with electric flush toilet, basin and separate shower. A hatch in the forward bulkhead of the shower is a large storage locker and forward of this locker, but completely separate, in the starboard bow is a storage locker which is accessed from the deck.
The port hull is the guest hull and the current owners have turned the aft cabin into a workshop. The mattress is still in the cabin, but has been tilted up to make a work area. Access to the port engine, watermaker and fuel filters is under the bunk and there is storage port and starboard. The toilet in the aft head has been removed and an Engle 12V Freezer put in its place. Plumbing for the toilet is still in place. Shelving is installed above the freezer.
The port forward cabin is the primary guest cabin with a head, with electric toilet and basin to port; storage to starboard and beneath the bunk. The bunk is high and runs athwartships; there is an easily accessible, enormous, bow locker forward and a hatch above for ventilation.
