On deck the spacious cockpit is covered by a hard-top bimini and leads on to the large aft swimming platform. All control lines are lead aft to the raised helmsman’s seat making navigation and maneuvering easy.
The Leopard 43, built with robust South African Standards, received glowing reviews in major sailing magazines. The salon table converts into an additional double bed. the navigation area is starboard, facing aft. Each of the cabins has large double berths, the forward cabins with walk around access, overhead opening hatch, a hanging locker, a settee with storage, overhead lighting, reading lights and 12V cabin fans.
