“The prime attraction of these yachts are their spectacular sailing capability. These medium displacement cruisers track very well and handle heavy weather with ease. Lowering the centerboard makes a tremendous difference to windward, allowing the boat to point 10 degrees higher.”
Sensational! Ted Hood’s design staff and Bristol Yachts’ craftsmen have helped define the term Cruiser-Racer. The 41.1 gets top performance from features like a medium displacement keel-centerboard design ( for favorable wetted surface to displacement ratio), a fine entry (for good upwind performance), powerful aft sections (for added stabilty and good speed off the wind), and a partailly skeg hung rudder. The best proof of performance is to sail and feel the sensation of the Bristol 41.1.
Bristol’s superb attention to detail is prevalent in the 41.1. The all wood interior is both spacious and luxuriously appointed with generous use of teak and Honduras Mahogany which complements both the high quality standard equipment and beautiful furniture. Cruising Comfort is enhanced by the privacy of two separate staterooms (each with its own head and shower). This shallow-draft centerboard yacht which draws 4′ 6″(CB up) or 10′ 0″(CB down) provides comfort and safety while allowing you to explore anchorages that other vessels of the same size can not enter.
Hull & Deck:
Molded high-impact fiberglass reinforced polyester resin … largely woven roving, strongest material available. Hull and deck thicknesses vary to suit structural demands. Deckhouse, deck and cockpit are integrally molded. Deck clamp and cove stripe molded with hull. Non-skid pattern molded into deck, seats and cabin top. Deck layout reflects careful planning. All rails, coaming covers and trim are beautifully varnished teak.
The V-berth arrangement; with its elegant hand-crafted closets, drawers and berths; epitomizes the quality workmanship Bristol has built its reputation on. There’s separate access to the head with hot and cold pressure water.
Attention to detail is especially noticeable in the large main salon area. Ample room for lounging and the L-shaped dinette make it an ideal social setting. A beautiful finish of teak and hand rubbed mahogany provide the type of accommodations one comes to expect from a Bristol.
With a queen size bunk; and a private head with shower (hot and cold pressure water) this handsomely designed area should please the discerning charterer. There’s also a hanging locker, sitting area and plenty of storage space to keep things shipshape.
The spacious and efficient galley is thoroughly equipped for your cruising needs.
