Photo of Leopard 43/45/47 Engine Space

I have been looking for days for a nice clear shot the engine space and access in a Leopard 43, 45 or 47 (4300,4500,4700). Does anyone have some good photo's?

Here is a shot of a Leopard 45 showing the rudder bar, generator and engine.

Are the engines under the aft bunks? Can you get at them from inside?

That actually brings me to another question, do people prefer to have their engines under the bedding or totally separated with only an outside access to the engines??

Just curious if there were pros and cons with those options.. I hope I didn't hijack this thread but your question wanted me to want it expanded upon..

Cheers

I know that the 42 is under the bunk and I did not like it. Diesel odor was always present. You have to roll up personal effects to lift the mattress and hatches.

I would think not only odors, but heat would be an issue under a berth?........i2f

every cat that I've ever chartered that had the engines under the bunk was like hell. The aft cabins were always 10 degrees hotter than the fwd cabins. Of course being a charter we were motoring every day for at least a few mins. not too much different than charging batts or running the reefer.
