Owners comment

I continue to increase my appreciation of the boat with each sail.  Since receiving my 41,  I’ve had the chance to sail with about 25 different people….. When I asked them what they enjoyed most, the common answer went something like this – “I loved the look of the boat when I first saw it, then I loved the way it sailed, then I loved just sitting in the salon and enjoying the look and feel of the finish work. At the end of the day, I can’t decide what I enjoyed the most but I do know that I’d like to be invited back.”” – Owner of hull # 1.


A review by Andrew Cross:


"The cockpit on any Alerion is home base and I liked how the 41’s was laid out. Large enough to happily fit eight people with an optional table, the settees are deep enough to be comfortable while also allowing for proper views. The helm and sail controls are far enough aft that the crew won’t be in the way of the person running the boat. And the mainsheet is led to a traveler just aft of the helm, allowing for end of boom sheeting that also keeps that whole mess clear of people sitting in the cockpit.

When it comes time to work on the engine, the floor of the cockpit raises up on gas springs, creating easy access that would make doing the necessary pre-sail checks a simple process. A removable panel also creates a standing and working space, so servicing the engine can be done efficiently.

One of my favorite features on deck, though, is aft of the cockpit. Recognizing the need for cruisers to be able to easily get in and out of the water or a dinghy, Alerion came up with one of the best looking and functioning stern platforms I’ve come across. What appears to be a large lazarette on deck actually folds up and aft to create a platform that a stern ladder can then articulate from. The overall look of the platform doesn’t detract from the boat’s appearance at anchor and is probably the perfect height for a family to get in and out of a RIB.

Down below, the Alerion design team kept with the theme of taking the 41 from its daysailer roots to a more comfortable cruiser. When stepping down the companionway, the interior woodwork and finish is absolutely striking. The hand-finished joinery can be had in American Cherry or teak, and white bulkheads gave the version we sailed a light and airy feel, even on a grey fall day.

The 41 comes standard with two cabins, which will make a good cruising layout for two couples or a family of four, and the settees are long enough to allow sleeping room for a few more. The forward V-berth is certainly the owner’s suite and the amount of storage, including a cedar-lined hanging locker, creates enough room for clothes and gear to be kept out of sight.

The starboard aft cabin is not huge and doesn’t need to be. There is enough room for two people to sleep and store clothes. And it could also make for a suitable spot to take a nap while the boat is underway.

Many would agree that a single head is all that is necessary on a boat of this size and Alerion has tucked one just forward of the saloon to port. Access to the head is available through the main saloon or through the V-berth. The main saloon is large enough to fit six adults comfortably for a meal and with six and a half feet of headroom, the boat doesn’t feel like a cave. The nav table is to starboard with a small chart table suitable for a laptop or chart book. Above and outboard of the chart table, the boat’s electrical panel is neatly tucked behind a locker face. The nav table also drops down to allow for the starboard settee to become a full-length berth."
