General Details



The Bristol 41.1 is a high performance cruiser with distinctive classical styling from the board of famous naval architect Ted Hood. Launched in early 1981 by Bristol Yachts, the boat was built by some of New England’s finest craftsmen. With that kind of pedigree there is no surprise that among cruisers she has excellent reputation as a blue water boat. One and a half times around the world - now it is your turn! 

 In total, 118 Bristol 41s were built in the 1980s and early 1990s.  She is a typical East Coast, heavy (26,500 lbs) "racing/cruiser".   Calabar is a centre cockpit, centre-boarder, now converted to slab reefing. The centreboard  gets you into spots no other 41 footer could reach.

This vessel has been upgraded for serious offshore cruising and re-engined (BRAND NEW)  her in St. Lucia, with a 50HP Yanmar 4JH5E engine , driving a 19" Maxprop. Clean bottom, smooth water cruising at 6.5 knots at 3000rpm.  The original instrumentation has been upgraded to include an Autohelm 6000, and a complete suite of ST60 instruments.

Sea proven and ready to go again.  Here is your dream.
