New Leopard 43/44 at Miami Boat Show ?

About 12 months ago, perhaps less, I thought I read that Leopard would likely introduce a new boat in the 43' to 44' range at the Miami Boat Show in February. I've seen or heard no more about an addition to the Leopard (R&C) line. Does anyone have any information? I haven't found anything at all in various searches. I think the original information was provided by someone at R&C. I think there were even some computer-generated designs. I've sailed Lagoons, Leopards and FPs and really like the sailing characteristics of the Leopards.

Leopard 44 = Sunsail 444

The web site states:

Leopard 44 = Sunsail 444 to make Worldwide Debut at Strictly Sail Miami Boat Show, February 17-21, 2011

Looks like a very sweet ride to me. Check out that forward cockpit

Yep Cotemar,

That's the one. The first forward cockpit in the Leopard line. My understanding is that a couple have already been delivered to Turkey and are to enter charter as early as March.

It was introduced early at the London Boat show on January 7th.

Looks cool, but I'm thinking it's a non-functioning cockpit??? Hope it's built better than their previous projects. How do I know this??? hang with their FTL warranty crew and hear the stories~
