CW Judges stated they found the best blend of purpose, quality and character,”The Leopard 40 is bigger and sails better than her predecessor, lighter by 4,000 pounds and saildrives keep the boat quiet.” They saw one of this model’s most remarkable feature as, "The Sail Handling Center by the helm, should become an industry standard. By bringing the sail controls all to one spot, you optimize handling the boat in rough conditions or when sailing shorthanded." Ergonomics, engine access, placement of hand-holds, interior layout all contributed to winning the award.
