You have got a well build reasonable well performing boat . it is a cruising cat so you cant expect wonders in speed or pointing but she does ok compared with most other cruising cats in the same size.
she has no problem areas that I am aware of.
Happy sailing

I owned a Leopard 38 and can comment that they are well built boats. Sailing performance is modest but acceptable. I have not had first hand experience with the Voyage beyond a walk about however they seem to be comparable in terms of construction quality. I think you are looking at two very comparable boats. I would suggest you look at the layouts and see which works best for you.

Your right there isnít a lot of them around and they arenít making any more, as least for right now. I have chartered and trained on the MainCat 41 as well as help deliver one and I can tell you they are fantastic sail boats making 12 knots without blinking. They are however fairly sparse in terms of ďamenitiesĒ that I know my Admiral wishes in a live aboard. If I were looking for a southern coastal cruiser or island hopper (in tropical climates) I would buy one of the 2 on the market right now in a heartbeat.
