Morrelli & Melvin | Multihull Design - Engineering - Brokerage Morrelli & Melvin Yacht Brokerage - Specializing in Sail & Power Multihull

Sunsail put Morrelli & Melvin and Robertson and Caine to the test to design the first of a new generation of simple to operate high performance cruising catamarans. We developed a catamaran that appeals to first timers and has a generous sail plan that will also excite the more experienced sailor.  The Sunsail 384 has something for everyone, and it's less than 40 feet in length.


The Leopard 38 / Sunsail 384 was awarded SAIL Magazine's 2010 Best Boat of the Year, Cruising World's 2010 Best Import and 2010 Best Multihull Cruiser of the Year. This catamaran was designed for the crusing market and kicking back and relaxing in idyllic coves and bays of the Mediterranean.  In no time, it has proven to be so popular that Sunsail has made them available in the Bahamas, Caribbean, South Pacific and Indian Ocean too.

We're proud of the eco-friendly features that we've packed into this smooth riding, high capacity cruising boat. The Sunsail 384 is the first Robertson and Caine cat equipped with solar cells.  The solar panels are installed on the bimini hardtop and will save an estimated 20 per cent on engine hours, increasing the lifespan of the onboard batteries by up to five years.

It was critical that the team used durable materials to withstand many years of extended cruising.  The tooling was built in China and shipped to South Africa, and we used GRP construction with balsa core for strength, stiffness and insulation in the hulls.
