Originally built as Leopard of London. Maria Alba II was launched in June 2000, the yacht was designed to have the performance to compete in regattas coupled with the luxury to charter. The yacht was conceived, built and engineered by a team of the highest pedigree: Reichel/Pugh as the design team; Green Marine of Southampton built the hull, deck and primary structures; Ken Freivokh Designs handled the yacht's interior and exterior design. The result is a yacht with race course performance but since purchase in 2006 by her current owners her role has been as a cruiser mainly in Mediterranean waters. In this time she has enjoyed extensive improvements for cruising her interior being upgraded as well as a new decks, engine, genset and mainsail along with upgrades and renewals in keeping with a yacht of this pedigree.

In current ownership since 2006 the yacht was renamed Maria Alba II and has undergone steady improvement since. Whilst most modifications have been aimed at improving her usability as a cruising yacht, a strict weight budget of one ton was adhered to in order not to overly affect her sailing characteristics. The main aims were to improve usability, and to improve self sufficiency so that the yacht could cruise and be at anchor without the need for port visits.

The current owners have used MARIA ALBA II almost purely for cruising with family and friends. The yacht always had full crew and professional maintenance. Mostly the yacht has been used in the Mediterranean but she did cross for one winter to the Caribbean (so did two trans-atlantics – there and back). Otherwise they have enjoyed her only during the Mediterranean summer seasons. Usually with thirty straight days each summer coastal cruising, and almost always on anchor at night. Places visited have included, Turkey, Greece, Croatia, Italy, Balearics. During summer 2013 the yacht was virtually used only for day sailing. Her home port is Cartagena mainland Spain.

Maria Alba II was originally built as Leopard of London. Launched in June 2000, the yacht was designed to have the performance to compete in regattas coupled with the luxury to charter.
The yacht was conceived, built and engineered by a team of the highest pedigree: Reichel/Pugh as the design team; Green Marine of Southampton built the hull, deck and primary structures; Ken Freivokh Designs handled the yacht's interior and exterior design; Southampton Yacht Services ran the systems designs and implementation. At approx 45 tons displacement and with ample sail area, she is clearly able to deliver on the performance, while her luxury accommodations (considerably upgraded in the last years) attest to her excellent cruising suitability.

As Leopard of London she was a keen competitor on the racing circuit worldwide, competing in the Fastnet, Sydney-Hobart, and Middle Sea Race, among others. She broke the record in the Round-the-Island race (Isle of Wight) in 2001.
