Easy handling and high effectiveness were the starting points by the development of the sail plan. A large mainsail and a high aspect jib meet these requirements. The high aspect jib is easy to handle and can be used under almost all weather conditions. A full- or partly batten mainsail with a good reefing system offer you the possibility to reduce sail. A gennaker can be sailed on the bow or a beam and takes maximum performance from the Charlotte 41. The halyards and trimming lines will be operated near the mast.
De Charlotte 41 has a roomy cockpit and the cockpit seats offer you a comfortable seating. Under the starboard cockpit seat you will find a spacious storage locker. The Charlotte 41 is easy to handle with a well shaped tiller in the cockpit.
The interior is designed with lots of comfort in sailing as well as in anchoring conditions, e.g. staying in the harbour. Entering the cabin, you will find the galley on port and the navigation and head on starboard side. These 3 facilities are also known as the ‘’wet area’’, because these are the places sailors will enter with wet-weather gear. Having the ‘’wet area’’ placed in the centre of the boat, keep other areas dry while sailing, which will provide considerable comfort afterwards. The average standing height in the galley, the head and in way of the chart table is 2.00m. The saloon is spacious and offers a two comfortable settees, and sufficient cupboards. The 22kW motor with saildrive is located under the staircase.
The head contains a toilet, a wash basin, ample cupboard space and a locker for wet clothing. The floor area and headroom allow for a shower.
The berths offer a comfortable resting place for 2 adults. Storage space is beneath the berths and in a hanging locker and laying cupboard.
Keel and rudder
The keel is constructed of a steel fin and a lead bulb. The lightweight Construction method in combination with the lead bulb creates a stabil and fast sailing yacht.
