The large cockpit with outside dining area is protected by a functional hard-top bimini fitted as standard, facilitating access to the mast and boom. A stack pack system, double purchase halyards, mast track and slide system make handling the fully battened mainsail surprisingly easy. Large, sleek windows along the coachroof sides add to the elegant look of the deck and give the interior a light, voluminous feel with 360° visibility.
Louver steps from the foredeck to the coachroof provide shade in the saloon and surefooted access to the mast winches. Available in 3 or 4-cabin layouts, the Leopard 40’s galley-up design incorporates a spacious saloon area with an L-shaped settee and an aft-facing galley with plenty of room to circulate. A softly curved Corian cocktail bar overlooks the adjoining cockpit area, enabling drinks and hors d’oeuvres to be served directly in the cockpit.
For dining, you’ll appreciate the ergonomic galley layout featuring soft curves and heat-resistant Corian countertops. Fully equipped, the compact galley features a stove with oven and broiler and a double sink with mixer tap and ample counter and cabinet space. Two overhead hatches and an opening port forward provide excellent ventilation.
Catering for a larger party is no problem, with standard appliances including a large refrigerator-freezer to port, with well-insulated compartments and stylish, front-opening stainless steel doors. The electrical panel, CD stereo and navigation instruments are positioned above the refrigerator which can also serve as the chart table.
The upgraded instrumentation panel houses switches for diverse equipment for including CD/radio stereo system, VHF, shore power, 12V and AC outlets. The companionway to the owner’s suite is to starboard and can be closed off with a folding door and sliding beech wood cover for extra privacy when desired (3-cabin layout).
Soft overhead lighting, quality upholstery and light beech wood finishes give a bright and airy feel to the Leopard 40 interior. High quality Corian surfaces and harmonious ultra suede or faux leather fabrics are used throughout. Several interior color options are available. Large windows provide panoramic views and allow natural light to flood in. Electric fans and opening hatches add to the comfort of this important living area.
In the 3-cabin layout, there are two guest cabins in the port hull, while the starboard hull is entirely dedicated to the owner, with a large private cabin, study area and large bathroom forward, with attractive beech finishing throughout. Located aft, the master stateroom features a large double berth, book shelf, reading lights and electric fans, a tall hanging locker and plentiful shelving for clothing and personal items, all in attractive beech finish. Two opening hatches and two opening ports allow excellent ventilation and luminosity.
The owner’s shower room and head are located forward in the starboard hull while a spacious head serves the two guest cabins to port. Amenities include a Corian washbasin with mixer tap, large separate shower stall, shaver outlet, mirrored vanity unit and oversized marine toilet.
