1970 Bristol 42 Trawler Little River, SC

Bristol 42 Trawler - Portside

  • General Description
  • Specifications
  • Add't Information

Designed by Eldridge and McInnis the 42 Bristol Trawler is a classic design with timeless lines.  She could easily be mistaken for many other trawlers of the day, two-cabin two-head layout, lots of room, large salon.  A great number of these boats were built in India with variations on features and unfortunately on quality as well.

This particular Bristol, number 37, can be traced back several decades through only a few owners, and is a very special boat indeed!  She was laid up in Rhode Island but finished in North Carolina.  She has features not found on other 42's and her quality of construction compares with few.

Powered by a solid pair of 4-53 Detroits she was hauled and inspected this summer (2017) and received an extensive list of maintenance services and upgrades including fresh bottom paint (no blisters), hull and engine zincs as well as oils changed, new boot and deck striping, new bimini for the bridge enclosure, new batteries for the engines and the inverter, plus a good bit more!

This is a boat of excellent quality and condition!  The previous two owners in her past have loved this boat like a member of their respective families, and can discuss her in detail back for several decades.  If you want a good quality, efficient, well maintained boat to become a member of your family, ready for extensive cruising RIGHT NOW, this is the one to see!

  • Number of Engines: 2
  • Total Engine Hours: 7000
  • Total Engine Power: 280.00

While the typical Bristol 42 features the classic two stateroom two head design, this particular vessel has a few variations not found on others.  The aft master stateroom has an aft facing center-line double berth, while the forward cabin has the more conventional V-Berth configuration.  A convertible double settee in the salon brings the comfortable accomodations total to six.  The aft master head features a stall shower.

The aft master cabin has dresser cabinets with drawer storage on both port and starboard sides as well as a large hanging locker.  The forward cabin also has drawer storage, storage inder the V-Berth, and an additional hanging locker.

The salon features two entry doors, starboardside to the aft section of the salon and portside to the forward, adjacent to the portside lower helm.  Unlike most Bristol 42's there is no entry door from the aft deck, thus providing more room and better use of space.

Rig and Sails

Auxilary power, accomodations, calculations.

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.

Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio .311 Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.

SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64) 2/3

  • SA : Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D : Displacement in pounds.

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.

Ballast / Displacement * 100

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.

D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet

Comfort Ratio

This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.

Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam 1.33 )

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet

Capsize Screening Formula

This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.

CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

From BlueWaterBoats.org :

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 excellent reputation as a blue water boat.

When Clinton Pearson left Pearson Yachts in 1964, industry insiders probably thought his most influential work was done. How could you not considering he and his brother, Everett, had founded what was the first production fiberglass manufacturer ever with their launch of the Pearson Triton 28 . But oh were they wrong. Subsequent to his ousting, Clinton purchased the troubled sailboat-maker, Sailstar and renamed the company Bristol Yachts in 1966 after the production facility’s location on Popasquash Road, in Bristol, Rhode Island. The early Bristols were Carl Alberg designs with full keel-hung rudders, they were stout boats with an easy motion in a seaway.

The Bristol 41.1, belongs to the second generation of yachts produced by the company. Most Bristols of this era were designed by Ted Hood’s office, and the 41.1 is no exception. Dieter Empacher was the primary naval architect of the 41.1 as well as the earlier Bristol 39/40.

In total 104 hulls were built from 1981 until 1994 after which the company concentrated on custom yacht construction until closing shop in 1997. Bristol Yachts of this era are known for high performance and a superb fit and finish details.

Configuration, Layout and Construction

The boat has a simple sloop rig. Below the waterline is a relatively long cruising fin keelwith 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). Her bow has a fine entry leading to powerful aft sections.

Both both aft and center cockpit options were available, the center cockpit had the generally preferred full width stateroom aft.

As for construction the Bristol 41.1 was laid up using layers of solid woven roving and polyester resin. The ballast weighting in at 10,500 pounds of lead was encapsulated inside the fiberglass keel section. On deck notable are the copious teak touchings that compose the railing, coamings, and trim and highlight her sweet style. Down below, her joinery work is a mix of teak and Honduras mahogany.

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.

Buyers Notes

Interior layouts vary. As noted there are aft and center cockpit deck molds. The center cockpit versions have a full width stateroom aft with either split berths or a full width king. In the main saloon is an L-shaped settee opposite either swivel chairs or a straight settee. All come with a V-berth forward. Along with the 41.1, Bristol produced around 26 hulls out of the same 41.1 mold of an alternate version called the 43.3 which had interior modifications – most notably an island queen berth aft. Instead of the walkthrough galley, the 43.3 has a corner galley arrangement like on the Bristol 45.5.

Boat Highlights, Details & Specs

Background on Bristol Yachts

Bristol Yacht Co. was founded in 1966 by sailboat builder Clint Pearson. The first offering was a Carl Alberg design, the Bristol 27, and it set a trend for success. A fleet of other sailboats followed during the next 30 years from such designers as Halsey Herreshoff, Ted Hood and Dieter Empacher. The 42 Offshore was the company’s first venture into the powerboat market, and it enjoyed a successful production run into the 1980s. Bristol Yacht closed in 1997 after building more than 4,000 sailboats and powerboats. The 42 Offshore remains popular in the used-boat market, and prices range from less than $100,000 to as much as $170,000, based more on the boat’s condition and extras than age.

Walkthrough

The Bristol 42 Offshore has the sturdy, seaworthy look of a traditional trawler with its high sides, big bow and deck house. It sleeps four in two cabins and has flybridge and inside helm stations. There’s seating on the flybridge and on the aft cabin top. Wide side decks all around make for safe access and easy line and fender handling.

The layout below is centered on the two cabins, each with its own head. The forward cabin has a V-berth with the head compartment to port and a hanging locker opposite. Moving aft is the Salon and lower helm station, galley with full refrigerator along with a stainless steel sink and good counter space. Aft to starboard in the salon is a fixed settee and aft to port is a desk/nav/work area.

The lower helm station is to Starboard in the saloon with full controls. The saloon features an L-shaped settee. The salon sole has been recently refinished and varnished as well as the salon ceiling. (see Owner's Comments) The master stateroom aft is outfitted with double berths to port and starboard and a full head with a separate shower along with a hanging locker and drawer storage. in between the two berths.

There are two cabins, each with its own head, separated by the length of the boat for privacy. “The aft cabin also makes for an easier climb to the flybridge than the steep ladders found on many The deck extends all around the pilothouse to make line handling easier and safer, and the aft cockpit makes for easy access to the swim platform. “There are entry doors to lower helm and salon from both the port and starboard side so docklines can be handled easily when single-handed.

Notes and Comments from the Owners of the Boat

From the Sellers:

"The vessel is totally sound and ready to cruise. The bottom was painted in November 2016 with three coats of Ultima ablative bottom coating. The engines have been rebuilt (48 hours and 10 hours ago). The genset has been totally rebuilt (10 hours use ago) as well as the starboard gear (48 Hours use ago)

The vessel features handmade brightwork both interior and exterior. Exterior brightwork has been finished with23 coats of AwlGrip. Cabin sole is hard maple. Overhead Hardtop is hard wooden maple with red oak cross beams… again totally hand made and the vessels solar panels will be remounted overhead. The vessel features a solid Khaya and Sapele custom built Hardtop with Native Florida Cypress planks. This results in a bridge deck which could easily be totally enclosed and air conditioned resulting in an entire extra climate controlled cabin. The owner is well schooled in sound principles of marine engineering. The entire weight of the topper is less than 300 lbs. There are 1100 lbs. of lead and zinc in the vessel’s keel to counterbalance the topper so it will not adversely affect the stability of the vessel.

This is the perfect vessel for visiting the Bahamas or doing the Great Loop. She is a spectacularly comfortable liveaboard. Under way at cruising speed she burns only 1.5 (that’s right… ONE AND A HALF) gallons per hour. That is almost as little as your family sedan!

A new trawler yacht of this size sells for at least a half million dollars. Better grab this one while you can, make your own improvements and save Hundreds of Thousands…"

Vessel overview.

The 42 Bristol is a very good build quality, double cabin, trawler, constructed of fiberglass with rounded chines, and a full keel. Recently Teak and Holly Soles have been added throughout the vessel. No Teak decks!

The vessel features an upper and lower helm station, with full walk-around decks and Port and Starboard salon doors. She features a galley up layout with a V-Berth forward with private head compartment. Up three steps lead to the main deck level with galley forward on the port side and lower helm forward with L-Shaped seating aft on the starboard side, There are side entrance doors from the outside walkaround deck area on each side.

Centerline steps lead down and aft into the aft master stateroom with berths aft on each side, and a large toilet compartment with shower stall forward on the starboard side.

The flybridge is accessed by steps at the aft trunk housetop with additional steps leading up to the flybridge helm with pedestal helm seat, and back to back passenger seating on the each side with an aluminum hinged mast with boom aft.

The engine room is accessed from the forward stateroom through the steps, or from large opening hatches in the salon.

All new windows, exterior topsides Awl-Grip paint, new generator and aluminum fuel tanks are just some of the many recent improvements.
