GULFSTAR INC., which made a name for itself with roomy and comfortable trawler-type power
cruisers and motorsailers, has now entered the market with this true sailing auxiliary, a 41footer that is notable for the same features.
Nearly a year was spent in research and design work, including model testing at the Stevens
Institute tank facility, and the Gulfstar 41 will certainly show a good turn of speed compared to
the trawler types. A keel of moderate draft allows cruising in most areas and a separate skeghung rudder makes for good maneuverability. A modern high-lift keel and hull form should lend
directional stability and a favorable ballast-to-displacement ratio plus a high-aspect-ratio sail
plan are calculated to give good response in heavy airs as well as upwind ability.
The plan shows a center-cockpit, tri-cabin layout with two heads serving the after and forward
cabins and a below-decks passageway connecting the after cabin and the saloon. With the
settee and dining area of the saloon converted to sleeping quarters, she can accommodate
The galley has a six-cu.-ft. top-loading icebox, a three-burner alcohol stove with oven, and a
stainless steel sink. A pressure water system is supplied from a 53-gallon fresh water tank.
Auxiliary power is a Perkins 4-107 diesel with 2:1 reduction, and a 45-gallon fuel tank provides a
moderate range under power.
