Company history

The Italian shipyard ARNO Leopard (later Leopard Yachts) started building its first wooden boats in 1973. After 11 years, the company switched to fibreglass, following the development of technology in the shipbuilding industry. By the early 2000s, ARNO Leopard's high-speed yachts were in great demand in the Mediterranean region.

In 2007, at the height of the superyacht market, ARNO Leopard was among the top 10 shipbuilders in terms of sales. Not all industry leaders were able to survive the crisis, but Leopard Yachts overcame the most difficult years, but a little later production had to be curtailed.

The shipyard's production facilities were located near the city of Pisa, home to many famous Italian shipbuilders. The company had at its disposal approximately 92,000 square metres of land. An average of 4-5 yachts were launched every year from the slipway of the shipyard.

Model range

Speed and comfort are two basic concepts that characterize the yard's range. The company's portfolio includes fiberglass superyachts from 27 to 46 meters in length. These are semi-custom boats with a choice of interiors and layout of living spaces. Models up to 31 metres traditionally have a semi-closed saloon, while larger yachts have a compact and elegant flybridge and are included in the Sports Bridge category.


ARNO Leopard was one of the first shipyards to combine the benefits of a flybridge and superstructure with a rigid roof.

As a result, the client received a boat with a harmonious design and additional space. At the same time the yacht did not lose maneuverability and speed. This «compromise» was appreciated by customers and helped the yard to take a leading position.
