The galley is also open and back-facing, making it possible to install a bar overlooking the dining area and the saloon, which means you can enjoy the sea view while relaxing at the back of the boat.
In 2005, the Leopard 40 was the “Boat of the Year” on the Cruising World Magazine owing to two standout features – the first being the incredible speed on water and the second one being the ease of handling.
Four cabins, two large heads, and separate shower stalls in a boat that sails excellently well – you really cannot ask for more!
