Length w/ Pulpit:
The Mainship 41 Convertible (originally called the 41 Cockpit Motor Yacht) came out in 1989 when Mainship was marketing an entirely new series of low-cost, Med-style cruising boats for entry-level buyers. Built on a solid fiberglass hull with a wide beam, one of the chief attractions of the 41 Convertible was her spacious interior. Indeed, the salon is unusually expansive for a boat this size with room for entertaining a large group of friends. The original two-stateroom floorplan has the galley forward on the salon level, and in 1991, a revised layout has the galley and dinette forward, a step down from the salon. Either way, the guest stateroom is a tight fit, and the inexpensive furnishings and cheap wall coverings leave a lot to be desired. (Note that small windows restrict natural lighting in the salon.) While the interior of the Mainship 41 is spacious, the cockpitwith its fold-down transom door and molded seatingis small. The flybridge, on the other hand, is huge with plenty of lounge seating. Standard 320hp gas engines cruise the 41 Convertible at 1516 knots and deliver a top speed in the low 20s. Optional 375hp Cat diesels cruise at 20+ knots (about 25 knots top).
