Over the years, we've loved Maine Cat 41's for their open bridgedeck with hard top and full enclosure for great ventilation, excellent visibility and the ability to close it all up for weather.
Nandu is Hull # 23 and was launched in September 2016 and may be the best equipped MC 41 ever launched by the factory.
She's just taken a $40,000 price reduction and is now available for $499,900.
MC 41's exhibit a good turn of speed and generally outsail the basic charter cats we've become accustomed to.
She's got twin diesel engines, Linear Drive Autopilot, Color GPS chartplotter, radar, VHF and watermaker. She has a bowsprit to run a Screecher Sail. She has Mackpack Mainsail with Lazy Jacks. Great ground tackle, excellent power system including large solar panel array, electric windlass and she's even got an electric winch, for easy and short handed sailing.
She points high when going to windward with her twin daggerboards down and flies on a broad reach with boards up.
Her interior accommodations are excellent with the starboard hull as owner's suite with massive owners berth, and port hull has a well equipped galley with an equally large VIP berth. She has two composting heads plus crew berth.
If you are looking for a super well equipped and easy to sail shallow draft vessel with a good turn of speed that will be perfect for warm weather sailing and can handle the cooler waters of Maine and beyond once the salon is enclosed, you owe it to your self to check out our 2016 Maine Cat 41 here in sunny Florida.
With her Large Bridgedeck open cockpit, this is the center of action on the MC 41. Trampolines forward with catwalk on centerline for secure footing when working at the bow.
Generous seating aft to port and starboard, and dinette forward which converts to a queen berth for alfresco sleeping under the screened in salon, or within the confines of the isinglass full enclosure. All cockpit bench seating doubles as storage space below.
Two "mate" seats, one to port and the other to starboard and large centrally located helm with large double seat and full controls/instrumentation.
Yachts twice this size cannot boast a cockpit and entertainment area of this size. Well appointed with overhead lights on dimmer switch and courtesy lights at the foot well throughout the cockpit.
To port is a well appointed galley with propane oven and stove, refrigerator and huge freezer. Outboard is a double sink with H/C pressure water. Tremendous storage throughout. Microwave oven included. Forward is large queen size berth, full head and composting toilet with intergral shower forward and additional private cabin with large single berth forward.
Starboard hull is the owner's suite and has large head with composting toilet system aft with walk-in separate full shower aft. Amidships is seating area, cabinet storage with large queen size owner's berth. Forward is Navigation area/desk with wood shelving. Fully forward is a private large, single berth which converts to an aft facing seat.
Total sleeping accommodations for 8.
The Maine Cat 41 is the only 41 foot production-built cruising catamaran in the world that provides outstanding sailing and motoring performance, huge payload capacity (7200 pounds) and a unique open bridgedeck design that transforms the entire bridgedeck area into a protected pilothouse. The unique open bridgedeck design is simply a better solution than the typical "floating condo" cat bridegdeck cabin arrangement, and provides superior visibility from the helm with exceptional ventilation throughout the main salon platform.
Headroom throughout; 6'8" minimum.

"My first goal was to make the 41 a good sailboat. The average 40-footer on the market today has hulls with length-to-beam ratios that are about 8:1. Our ratio is 10.5:1. Because she’s finer, she has reduced wetted surface and is thus more easily driven."
Maine Cat boats have no liners or structural grids. There’s no wood in them, not in bulkheads or decks. The only wood is in the doors and interior trim. All assemblies are vacuum-bagged Corecell composites. According to Vermeulen, a Maine Cat 41 equipped to cruise weighs 14,000 pounds, which allows for a realistic cruising payload before it reaches its design displacement of 19,200 pounds.
