Best equipped and nicest center cockpit 41.1 this brokerage has seen in decades. Absolute pleasure to represent.
NEW HORIZONS is an iconic Ted Hood design, and one of the later hulls built at Bristol Marine in Bristol, Rhode Island. The Bristol 41.1 is a phenomenal coastal cruising sailboat with true shoal draft thanks to her keel / centerboard arrangement. With the board up the draft is only 4’-6” and with the board down the draft stretches to 10’-6”, allowing for great upwind sailing performance. Capable of offshore work as well, many Bristols have sailed up and down the U.S. East Coast from New England to the Bahamas and Caribbean - with more than a handful up in the Great Lakes also. The 41.1 is a perfect size boat for two couples to cruise with two great cabins and two heads and showers and plenty of privacy thanks to her center cockpit. Additional berthing in the main salon for kids and overflow guests and offshore sailing. A very handsome boat with just the right proportions, she sails remarkably well in light air yet is stiff enough to handle places like Buzzards Bay where the chop is steep and there is wind aplenty. NEW HORIZONS has many custom touches including hull ports in the main salon, recent stainless davits for carrying a tender and in-boom furling for ease of handling without any loss in performance.
Easily managed by a couple, NEW HORIZONS truly excels for shorthanded sailing with modern in-boom furling coupled with an electric halyard winch, electric windlass, roller furling genoa, davits etc.
NEW HORIZONS is a very special example of her class! Indoor heated storage for the past twelve years with excellent care from The Concordia Company in South Dartmouth, Massachusetts.
She has 6’-4” of headroom and can comfortably sleep seven adults in two cabins and the main salon.
The main salon has an L-shaped settee to port and a facing settee to starboard. Each settee pulls out to form a wider bunk. A beautifully varnished drop-leaf table is located between the settees that will easily seat six people. Starboard forward salon locker with shelves and light. Behind both settees are storage cabinets that have all been painted, and customized with additional teak shelving with fiddles for more organized storage including a teak CD rack. The upper cabinets have been lined with teak. Behind the starboard settee is a custom wine locker that securely holds wine bottles and glasses as well as two glass decanters. This is all built of teak, with custom beveled-glass front door panels, and is internally illuminated.
All teak is in excellent condition with a beautiful hand rubbed finish; horizontal trim is high gloss, offering a “classic” look to the interior. There are very tasteful neutral curtains (lined) on all ports and port lights.
Lewmar hull-mounted fixed portlights with custom teak trim rings add to the available light below and make for beautiful views of the water at anchor as well as underway, a feature rarely seen on this model boat. There is a 13” TV/DVD system with remote for viewing in the main salon (not in service). A large aft-facing custom nav station is located to port with beautiful custom teak panels and modern state-of-the-art electronics as detailed below. There is additional storage underneath the chart table and also excellent access to the generator room.
The cabin sole is beautifully varnished teak and holly and has excellent access ports to the area below the cabin floor for wiring, pumps, sea strainers, tanks etc. The interior cushions are covered in beautiful bone-colored leather with a very traditional settee back pleating. Teak binoculars holder mounted on table leg.
The main salon has excellent ventilation with two opening ports with custom teak screens and two opening upgraded SS ports with screens. There are three bronze lanterns for additional illumination.
The ‘Alley Galley” is to starboard and is located between the main salon and aft cabin. It features a 3-burner gimbaled, propane Force 10 stove (new 1997) with oven and broiler.
FWD CABIN and HEAD
The fore cabin has a large V-berth with custom fitted sheets, cedar-lined hanging locker, drawers and lockers along the length of the V-berth, port and starboard. The cabin has doors into the main cabin as well as the forward head. The cushions have been updated and covered with tan Sunbrella and there is a custom mattress topper that fits over the cushion for added comfort. The forward head is equipped with a head, sink, toilet and shower with updated shower control fixtures.
AFT CABIN and HEAD
The aft cabin is located down the passageway through the galley and features an athwartship large bunk with custom Tempur-pedic topped cushions with new Sunbrella covers and custom fitted sheets. At the foot of the bed to port there is a LCD flatscreen 12V TV/ DVD player (replaced 2016) with remote that is custom built into the cabinetry which was lined with teak. New upgraded Alpenglow day/night teak lighting fixture.
There are two hanging lockers – both cedar lined and additional storage drawers and cabinets throughout. There is a hidden compartment within the cabinetry for valuables, passports etc.
The separate aft head to port has a sink, toilet and shower with new Moen control fixture and shower head. Behind the mirror at the sink the cabinet has been customized with teak dividers for more storage and organization. AC vent in head. Raymarine Multi Flush mounted at bunk for readout of all Raymarine instrument functions. Bronze lantern; gimbaled with etched glass globe.
The boat was COMPLETLEY re-wired and upgraded by ABYC qualified electricians in 1999/2000 conforming to ABYC standards at that time including:
Separate 12V group 24 AGM start battery on echo charger for shore charging:

In the cockpit:
Ergonomic cockpit for sail handling and lounging alike. Great protection from the custom dodger (white) (2015) with cockpit settees extending forward either side of companionway; a trademark Bristol design element. The folding teak table is well-executed. Winches are within reach of the helm, as is the mainsheet. Electric mainsail halyard winch located under dodger.
Major mechanical and engine room refit was undertaken in 2011 with new Yanmar engine installed and engine room virtually stripped bare and rebuilt.
Marine Air Reverse Cycle Air Conditioner/heaters with digital controllers (not in service):
