Introduced in 2006, the Luhrs 41 Open was among the larger express sportfishing boats of her day. Based on the Luhrs 41 Convertible, the 41 Open rides on a modified-V hull with prop pockets and a solid fiberglass bottom. With a broad 15'9"" beam, the 41 is a big boat for her size. Her 100-square-foot fishing cockpit came standard with a 50-gallon transom livewell, molded bait prep station with tackle drawers, sink and water faucet, two 45-gallon in-deck fish boxes with macerators, and four gunwale-mount rod holders. Note the separate pump room aft of engine room. Below deck, the 41 Opens well-appointed interior uses the galley counter as the first step into the cabinmaybe not such a good idea. An L-shaped dinette, which electrically slides out to form a double berth, seats six and features storage for seven rods behind the seat back. The forward stateroom has a queen-sized island berth with storage under and two hanging lockers. An open-air galley was available for the bridge deck, and the standup engine room is unusual in a boat this size. Cruise at 2627 knots with Cummins 580hp diesels (about 30 knots top).
