The Arno Leopard 27 motor yacht ‘BULL’ is 27 metres in length. She was built at the Italian shipyard of Cantiere Navale Arno.
She is an outstanding, very highly specified, and immaculately presented offshore performance sports cruiser, which was purchased by the notorious former chairman of NASDAQ - Bernard Madoff in 2007, from a retail price of 6.1m Euros, the boat was sold to him new, at a discounted price of approximately 5m Euros.
She has been maintained by a full-time crew and spent all of her time on the Cote D’Azur, until being moved by the liquidators to Gibraltar, where we are now able to offer her for sale.

"BULL” is a bespoke Leopard 27m that was built to Bernard Madoff’s unique specification. She was launched in April 2007. She has been lightly used and has circa 300 hours use, and has recently undergone in August 2010 a full out of the water maintenance service and is ready for immediate use.
Mr Madoff was particular about keeping her clean by ordering carpet over carpet and not allowing food on board at any stage, therefore most of the Galley equipment remains unused to date.
The Captain has been with “BULL” from order date, and has been involved and overseen her throughout her build at the Cantiere Naval Arno factory in Pisa, Italy.
With 2 x MTU 16V 2000 M92 (2,285 hp) engines, and Arneson surface-piercing drives, this Leopard 27 motor yacht is capable of speeds of up to 42 knots, and a cruising speed of 34 knots. She has recorded approximately 300 hours and has a full maintenance history.
