This CLASSIC 1983 Bristol 41.1 is located In Scituate Harbor, Mass.
This is one of those MUST SEE boats.
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 an excellent reputation as a blue water boat.
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.
The boat has a simple sloop rig. Below the waterline is a relatively long cruising fin keel with a skeg hung rudder. As with most Ted Hood designs, there's a centerboard arrangement, to maximize windward performance (10' board down) while allowing access to shoal draft areas (4' 6" board up).
Standing rigging (wire) was replaced in 2005.
Both aft and center cockpit options were available, with the center cockpit being the generally preferred model with a full width stateroom aft. This is the preferred model.
Besides the meticulous eye for detail that the Bristol 41.1 Center Cockpit has as a result of her
initial design, Quest has been maintained at a level that denies her age. Just about everything has been replaced or upgraded over the past several years, and the usual concerns about an older boat just do not apply. Electronics, engine, canvas, bright work - all have been systematically brought into the modern day. See the SPECIFICATIONS page for more details
Originally sailed in freshwater in Green Bay and kept inside in winter times, she now spends her summers on the South Shore and again winters inside a shed, where the current owner goes through every inch of the boat ensuring all is ready for the following spring.
With her centerboard up, she only draws 4' 6" allowing you to get into shallower areas that even smaller full keel boats cannot, while with the 10' centerboard down, Quest will give you far more stability for those longer blue water cruises.
For any previous sailboat owner, you will appreciate the roomy engine room for checking or changing the oil, belts, tuning etc, for those times when you do need to work on the iron sail.
Quest is truly a rare find for the type of sailor that takes pride, not just in "having a sailboat", but in having a Bristol 41.1 in excellent shape.
There is a Mercury 8.2 solid floor dinghy and a mercury 5 HP engine, bought at the Newport Boat show in 2014 not included in the price, but available if interested
The pictures do not do her justice. Quest is a MUST SEE.
