I own a lagoon 440
but can honestly say the leopard 47 is a fantastic vessel.
I have friends who own them and a family
who sailed around the world on one, two adults and three children
- they absolutely rave about their leopard 47.
In SA we often go on long trips together on our independent vessels. We all keep up with each other and average speeds in nice wind
conditions of about 12 knts.
Having had said that, they also love my lagoon 440
- especially the fly bridge.
The leopards bathrooms and toilets are superior to my Lagoon
440 but the main cabin
is more spacious and better layout than the leopard. Also the leopard beds are not as nicely set out as in getting around the sides if the bed
to make them up. The leopard has more outdoor patio space off the main cabin
whereas the lagoon
440 is more 'around the table type seating style'.
The lagoon has a nice feature in the roof over the patio area where there is a gold out section that houses a table and legs nicely tucked out of the way.
Either way - these are really nice boats and you would not be disappointed if you bought the leopard 47.
