Bluewater Sailboat – Bristol 41.1

The Bluewater Sailboat Bristol 41.1 is a high-performance cruiser designed by renowned naval architect Ted Hood with a recognizable classical appearance. The vessel, which was created by some of the best craftsmen in New England, was launched by Bristol Yachts in the early 1980s. With that kind of heritage, it should come as no surprise that she enjoys a stellar reputation as a blue water yacht among cruisers.

Industry insiders likely believed that Clinton Pearson’s most significant work was completed when he left Pearson Yachts in 1964. Given that, with the introduction of the Pearson Triton 28, he and his brother Everett established the first-ever fibreglass factory, how could you not? But boy, were they mistaken. But boy, were they mistaken. After being removed from office, Clinton bought the ailing sailboat manufacturer Sailstar and changed the business’ name to Bristol Yachts in 1966 to reflect the location of the production plant on Popasquash Road in Bristol, Rhode Island. Early Bristols had full keel-hung rudders and Carl Alberg’s designs; they were sturdy boats that moved easily in a seaway.

The Bristol 41.1 is a member of the company’s second generation of yachts. The Ted Hood’s firm designed the majority of Bristols during this time period, and the 41.1 is no different. Both the older Bristol 39/40 and the 41.1’s main naval architect was Dieter Empacher.

From 1981 until 1994, 104 hulls in all were produced by the business. From then until its closure in 1997, it focused on building custom yachts. This era’s Bristol Yachts are renowned for their great performance and impeccable fit and finish.

It has a straightforward sloop rig. A rather long cruising fin keel with a skeg-hung rudder is present below the waterline. A centerboard configuration, typical of Ted Hood designs, is used to optimize windward performance (10′ board down) and provide access to shoal draught places (4′ 6″ board up). Her bow has a beautiful entry that leads to strong aft portions.

There were options for an aft and center cockpit, the center cockpit having the more popular full-width cabin at the back. 

In terms of structure, layers of solid woven roving and polyester resin were used to lay up the Bristol 41.1. The 10,500 pounds of lead ballast were contained inside the fiberglass keel portion. Numerous teak touches on the deck, which make up the railing, coamings, and trim and highlight her lovely elegance, are noteworthy. Her joinery work down below is made of a combination of Honduras mahogany and teak.

Performance

These ships’ incredible sailing abilities are their main draw. These medium-sized cruisers have excellent tracking characteristics and can easily manage bad weather. The boat’s ability to point 10 degrees higher to windward is greatly improved by lowering the centerboard.

Review of Bristol 41.1

Basic specs..

The Bristol 41.1 is equipped with a centerboard keel. A centerboard keel is a pivoting lifting keel, allowing to sail both coastal and inland waters.

The boat can enter even shallow marinas as the draft is just about 1.37 - 1.47 meter (4.49 - 4.79 ft) dependent on the load. See immersion rate below.

The boat is typically equipped with a Westerbeke diesel engine.

Sailing characteristics

This section covers widely used rules of thumb to describe the sailing characteristics. Please note that even though the calculations are correct, the interpretation of the results might not be valid for extreme boats.

What is Theoretical Maximum Hull Speed?

The theoretical maximal speed of a displacement boat of this length is 7.7 knots. The term "Theoretical Maximum Hull Speed" is widely used even though a boat can sail faster. The term shall be interpreted as above the theoretical speed a great additional power is necessary for a small gain in speed.

The immersion rate is defined as the weight required to sink the boat a certain level. The immersion rate for Bristol 41.1 is about 267 kg/cm, alternatively 1496 lbs/inch. Meaning: if you load 267 kg cargo on the boat then it will sink 1 cm. Alternatively, if you load 1496 lbs cargo on the boat it will sink 1 inch.

Sailing statistics

This section is statistical comparison with similar boats of the same category. The basis of the following statistical computations is our unique database with more than 26,000 different boat types and 350,000 data points.

What is L/B (Length Beam Ratio)?

What is a Ballast Ratio?

Maintenance

When buying anti-fouling bottom paint, it's nice to know how much to buy. The surface of the wet bottom is about 53m 2 (570 ft 2 ). Based on this, your favourite maritime shop can tell you the quantity you need.

Bristol 41.1

  • Add to quote

I have searched the internet and the archives on this and other BBs, but can find little info on these sailboats. I am specifically interested in A) construction (were proper techiques used, are they cored and where, hull/deck fastening, etc) B)sailing manners C) any specific problem inherent with the B41.1. With a 120 PHRF, I know that they are not speed demons, but as a long-term liveaboard/cruiser for the Caribbean, their speed appears to be reasonable. Thanks - Any info will be appreciated!!  

Ian, you''d probably benefit by chatting with a friend who has taken his 41.1 as far north as Maine and also cruised for several years throughout the Caribbean. Send me an email offline and I''ll reply with his email address. Jack [email protected]  

Ian, My wife and I are also very intersted in Bristol 41.1 as a cruising boat and some offshore work. We are trying dig up any info we can on construction and sailing qualities. Emailed some questions to Ted Hood but got no reply. I did find out elsewhere that water tanks are a big problem. They are SS and built right up against the hull, causing condensation and then leakage. Worst of all the are very difficult to replace and difficult to bladder due to baffeling. On the good side I think her speed is good when compared to other cruisers such as; Whitby42, CSY44, Pearson424. Another plus for me is her prop runs protected in a cutout in the skeg. We sailed our last boat a Starrett 45 from Maryland up to the Canadian border and back and the last think you want to do is snag a lobster pot sailing the Gulf of Maine at night. I would very much like to hear about any info you can dig up on the 41.1. Especially interested in the centerboard. Does it bang around in a seaway. Is it difficult to service and is it safe offshore. A experienced sailor once told me " I''d rather go to sea in a Good centerboard boat than a poor fixed keel boat". Our other choice would be a Brewer 12.8 Thanks ...Dennis

Dennis, From all the info we have been able to gather on the Bristol41.1 & Brewer 12.8, they both appear to be well built with good sailing characteristics. We are leaning towards the Bristol for several reasons: 1)draft will allow access to more areas 2)we prefer the interior finish a little more 3) they hold their value extremely well 4) most important - the Brewer''s cockpit does not drain very fast and the companionway is very exposed to sea water see - http://www.yachtworld.com/core/listing/pl_display_photo.jsp;jsessionid=aaaeMAKTRbrwd7?slim=quick&boat_id=1012164&boatname=42%27+Brewer+Brewer+12.8+Ketch&photo_name=Cockpit&photo=7 We would not feel comfortable with any extended blue-water sailing with the interior exposed to that degree! (The Whitbys are not configured in this manner). From what I understand, the centerboard can make substantial noise. However, one owner said that he installed some type of buffer that eliminated the rattle. ian  

bristol 41.1 sailboatdata

The 12.8''s were built both with and without bridge decks. Those that were built without bridge decks were set up with gasketed lower hatch slides and with latch for the lower board. Having that lower board removeable really makes the boat a lot more liveable in terms of getting in and out under the dodger when in port. Jeff  

Also when I looked at the whole listing one of these two boats are actually a Whitby 42 and not a Brewer 12.8 despite what the ads say. The two big differences between the Brewer 12.8''s and the Whitby 42 is that the Brewers are cutters with keel/centerboards drawing 4''6" with the board up and the Whitby''s have fixed keels and ketch rigs. Jeff  

Jeff, My concern is: will the hatch board stand up to a breaking wave? Also, the cockpit appears to be too large for extended off-shore work, especially since they drain slowly. The Bristol just seems to be a better setup for offshore.  

The cockpit volumes are very similar between the Bristol 41.1 and the Brewers although when we were looking at the two boats back to back, the Brewer seemed to have a more useable cockpit. Both had the same number and size of cockpit drains. We felt that the Bristols were slightly more biased towards coastal cruising and since my father was planning to spend time offshore leaned towards the Brewers. The lower hatchboard on the Brewers have a smaller span than usual and so would of course hold up to a breaking wave. Besides if the location where the lower hatch boards are located were ever actually exposed to a breaking wave, the boat would have far worse problems than a broken hatch slide. If you are so concerned about wave action in the cockpit you can rig a storm shutter on the lower slide when venturing offshore. You will need to do that anyway on the Bristol''s larger and more exposed port lights. Both boats are good boats and so I don''t think that you would go wrong with either of them. Jeff  

Ian, I have the same concern about the Brewer cockpit. It is very big and very wide. This makes it difficult to wedge yourself in on a rough day. The Bristol cockpit is narrow enough to sit aside of the wheel and brace your feet on the other seat. One thing the Bristol does not have, is that nice big anchoring system at the bow that the Brewer has. I know when we cruised we set two anchors many times and it sure would be nice to have two anchor rollers and plenty off room to work. Now that I think of it, several of the Bristols we looked at did not even have a windlass. Unusual for a true cruising boat. Dennis  

I think I saw some information on a Pearson site that Bristol was somehow once connected to Pearson and the people that ran that company.  

I was correct Pearson became Bristol in the Seventies here is the story interesting to read.http://www.pearson40.org/pearson_history.htm  

You are mistaken, Pearson never ''became Bristol''. The Pearson Brothers (or were they cousins), Clint and Everett started Pearson Yachts. They were bought out by Grummin in the mid 1960''s. Clint Pearson later started Bristol Yachts and Everett alter started TPI which as a contract builder, builds J-boats and which have built a wide range of boats over the years including the Alerions and Freedoms. Since Everett and Clint were such different personalities the absense of one from the other''s business made their individual companies very different from Pearson Yachts during the time that they were together. Any article that says differently has it very wrong. Respectfully, Jeff  

Perhaps this URL will be helpful in understanding the Pearsons'' involvement with both Pearson and Bristol, and how Pearson changed - and didn''t - over the period it had its longer, original identify. www.pearson40.org/pearson_history.htm Jack  

Oops... I hadn''t read this thread until I posted the URL that was already posted; sorry for the duplication. I''m not sure how a ''Pearson became Bristol'' conclusion could come from that URL''s review of Pearson''s history. Ian, I gave you the earlier option of talking with a long-term 41.1 owner who cruised his boat many sea miles. I would think you would benefit from talking with experienced owners. One''s inability to brace a foot in a wider cockpit is a minor issue, and is dealt with in a variety of ways by both manufacturers and owners; it''s not a problem without multiple simple, inexpensive solutions. When sailing offshore in-season, I would not think a W42 or B12.8 cockpit''s volume would be a critical issue, given the freeboard and location of the cockpit. OTOH if boarding seas into this cockpit is a legitimate worry, you are looking at the wrong boat. And WRT the lower hatchboard, if you honestly feel it is vulnerable just build a double-braced hatchboard that can be used offshore vs. the ''standard'' one used day-to-day. Start with a replica of your existing board, built to the same thickness but in inexpensive ply, and then thru-bolt strongbacks, horizontally, to the top and bottom of the hatchboard, on the side facing the cockpit. Sliding that ''offshore hatchboard'' in place, it will be supported by both the strongbacks (lying flush with the vertical coamings of the hatch) and by the board itself (resting in its companionway slot).

The Bristol 41.1 is what is known as a second-generation Bristol (yes Bristol Marine was formed by one of the Pearson cousins and if you see both a Bristol and Pearson out of the water, the underbodies are quite similar).The first generation Bristols were narrow beam, full keel, large overhangs bluewater tanks - great sea boats. The second generation Bristols are more user friendly, wider beam, better accomodations below, good downwind racers from the old school and generally strongly built (my 29.9 is solid fiberglas hull, cored deck), bluewater boats. I've been caught in two full gales in Paloma (a second-generation Bristol) and have faired quite well in both. For additional information about the 41.1, log onto the Bristol Owner's site at Bristol Owners' Association Home Page and click on "about the boats", there is also a history of Bristol on the site.

Bristol Yachts

Clint Pearson launched Bristol Yachts in the fall of 1964 after he stepped out of the presidency of the Pearson Yachts, which had become a division of Grumman Allied Industries. After purchasing the assets of Sailstar Yachts, another manufacturer of small sailboats in the area, he also bought the Poppasquash Point boat yard and the land on Franklin Street to establish a manufacturing plant. Here he built the first new models like the Bristol 27, designed by Carl Alberg. In one year 172 Bristol 27’s were built. There was also the Bristol 29 designed by Halsey Herreshoff, the Bristols 32 and 39 designed by Ted Hood, and Bristol 34 designed by John Alden Assoc.. Later ‘second generation’ models included the 31.1, 35.5, 41.1, 45.5, 47.7 and then larger custom boats. In total, 4400 Bristol Yachts were produced between 1965 and 1997 when the company ceased production. HIN for Bristol Yachts: BTY

    LENGTH: Traditionally, LOA (length over all) equaled hull length. Today, many builders use LOA to include rail overhangs, bowsprits, etc. and LOD (length on deck) for hull length. That said, LOA may still mean LOD if the builder is being honest and using accepted industry standards developed by groups like the ABYC (American Boat and Yacht Council).
