Classic 1978 Cheoy Lee Ray Richards Offshore 41. Very spacious interior with comfy circular settee, generous private quarter cabin with ensuite head and four single bunks 2 forward and 2 aft, the perfect setup for a family. The teak decks have been removed, deck was re-faired and Awlgriped. Yanmar diesel, Raymarine Hybrid Touch GPS/Radar, diesel heater, wooden spars coated with Cetol for easier maintenance.
Practical Sailor Magazine describes the 41's interior like this:
Compared to most cookie cutter boats with compartmentalized interiors, the 41’s interior has personality. Depending upon the size and age of the crew, it will either be ideal or totally unsuitable for extended cruising.
Richards designed an 18′ long, nearly wide-open cabin that provides sleeping accommodations for a crew of six, and seating for 6-8 at an 8′ diameter dinette.
Enclosed berths in the fo’c’sle are accessed by removing a panel in the dinette back. Berths are laid out in what Richards describes as a “toe-over-toe arrangement,” the port berth being higher than its counterpart, which eliminates the possibility of creating a second double berth. As an alternative, the space will work well for storage of tools, spare sails, and anchor rode, since the boat has no anchor locker.
“I saw the forward berths as a place to get a little private time away from the madding crowd, and for the same reason a place to read,” Richards said.
Also a bit unusual, especially for its time, is the skipper’s enclosed stateroom, located to starboard and aft of the head and saloon, which has a double berth to starboard and hanging locker.
