The Leopard 43, is well regarded as she’s built with robust South African Standards and received glowing reviews in major sailing magazines. She has a spacious layout of 4 cabins, each originally designed with a full en-suite bathroom, a very large salon, and a galley-up design. The salon table easily sits 8-10 guests and 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, an overhead opening hatch, a hanging locker, a settee with storage, overhead lighting, reading lights, and 12V cabin fans. Each head has a washbasin, oversized toilet bowls, and a large shower with a manual sump pump and hanging shower head fitting. The U-shaped galley-up allows the chef to enjoy the panoramic view while interacting with guests and crew.
