1981 Oyster 41

Den Oever, Netherlands


This Oyster 41 from 1981 has undergone a total refit from 2000 and is in very good condition. A total of 27 ships of this highly competitive Stephen Jones IOR one-tonner design were built by Oyster Marine between 1980 and 1987.

The deck layout is well thought out and the fittings are of good quality. There are no less than 11 Lewmar winches mounted around the cockpit to use the sheets and trim lines. The rod-rigged fractional mast is very easy to trim with the back and check stays. An extra genaker boom has been placed on the foredeck, the sails are still in good condition, the Genoa is even as good as new from 2020.

The interior was completely renovated in 2000 and arranged differently, the kitchen was enlarged and the benches lowered to normal height. A lot of new closet and storage space has also been created. It has been decided to keep the boat as open and light as possible. The 4 sleeping places in the stern can therefore only be closed with a curtain. The front cabin with toilet room and double berth can be closed with a door. The motor was replaced in 2000 and concealed in a formwork. By sliding it forward, the engine is accessible all around for service. This Oyster 41 is still a very fast yacht by today's standards which will do well on the competition course. Yet she is also easy to sail with a small crew, so that the boat is certainly also suitable for a sporty family.

The interior was redesigned and build in 2000. The galley was enlarged and the benches lowered to customary height. Also a lot of cupboard and stowage space was created. The interior was kept as light and open as possible in order not to compromise the yacht’s performance. The rear cabins cannot be closed by doors but have curtains instead. The bow with head and double bed does have a door however for privacy reasons obviously.
The decklayout is very practical and all purchases are of high quality. There are no less than 11 Lewmar winches around the cockpit to handle all sheets, halyards and trimming lines. The tiller has been replaced by a pedestal mounted wheel. For the new genaker a removable Seldén boom was placed on the foredeck.
The engine was build in a soundproof box that can easily shifted forward. It is accessible for maintenance all around.
