Paul,

We just finished sailing lessons on the Leopard 43. It was nice for the week but I would not want to spend more time on it. That's why we were looking at the Leopard 46. Now that we know enough to be dangerous, we are giving the Antares another look. Did you have a preference for the galley being up or down?

Maje

We like the galley down - in the Antares it is all part of the salon due to the high coachline and enables the cook to be part of the action.
The length of the galley is also handy - you can get intsall a lot of equipment (including our manditory capuccino maker) and still have space for two people to work side-by-side.

Antares options

Apparently the Antares offers the 29 hp Yanmar engines standard, or the 40 hp as an option. They also offer a new taller mast, however, it would then exceed the ICW heights. We have a sea trial scheduled for the Annapolis show, and will certainly get more info on both of these subjects, but just wanted to see if anyone on here has any opinions/knowledge. My inclination would be to not upgrade in either category.

CPIII:
We would not go with the taller mast but might consider the 40 HP option if they can be ordered in counter-rotation mode.
The 29 HP models only come in clockwise rotation - not a big deal but a consideration.
Powerput for the 29 HP is fine .
