Design and Construction
Hydra-Sports bases the 41's organizational philosophy on the premise of running the boat alone. With that in mind, systems must be convenient, close at hand and easy.
The forward seating area sports a removable hi-lo table that doubles as a sundeck insert. The beautiful hardtop comes standard, complete with LED lighting. Finished bilges and a very roomy lazarette let you access every system you could want.
Hydra-Sports installs two fuel fills fore and aft on both sides of the boat. If you use high-speed hoses, pump into two holes on the dockside and open fills on the opposite side for supreme venting.
All deck hatches have full-length piano hinges recessed far enough below the deck that you'll never catch a bare foot or cast net on one.
Under the deck forward, the compartment sports twin posts on which Hydra-Sports fastens spare propellers.
I especially like that you can reach under cushions to undo hatch latches without having to remove the cushion. You don't need three hands.
The one-piece liner console hosts a fixed toilet and provides amazing headroom and storage space. Other options at the helm include air conditioning and misters. Of course, anyone who read Tom Clancy's novel, Rainbow Six, will probably pass on the latter.
The huge dash can accommodate twin 15-inch displays along with the rest of your electronics suite. You'll find a thigh-high glove box containing three power points for charging (and safely storing) cell phones.
One of the most interesting innovations comes with the standard seating arrangement. The centerline helm has flanking electric bolster seats with drop-away bottoms. Immediately behind those, Hydra-Sports mounts what it calls a "sleigh seat," a cushioned, incredibly comfy bench seat with high sides.
Hydra-Sports builds wood-free boats, opting instead for a combination of high-tech composites and hand-laid fiberglass. It uses pre-cut biaxial fabric and woven roving, and the company has long been famous for using Kevlar as reinforcement in its hulls.
Even if you aren't in the market for a boat this size (or price), go see one anyway. It'll give you great ideas!
