While I have not been on a 41 photos Ive looked at showed a hatch
on the aft steps. It is a little different than the 380 not quite as large but without seeing one I couldn't say. Having to access the engines through the berth would definitley make me lean towards the Leopard. We looked at all the new cats at the strictly sail in Miami
and most of the them if not all had access through dedicated hatches aft. Anyone here know if the saildrive
on the L41 is behind the rudder
On another note with respect to the Leopard, how good is the bridgedeck clearance. It appears to be less than the lagoon. We returned from a week aboard a L380 and in the heavier seas there was only occasional hull
slapping. Any first hand knowledge would be helpful. Thanks again for the responses.
