Cruisers packs a lot into its 41

Publish date:

Just when you thought today’s boats were maxed out on creature comforts, along comes the 41 Cantius from Cruisers Yachts. The Oconto, Wis., builder has designed its sport cruiser with a stern bar area — complete with stools — on the swim platform.

“The mission was to really pack a large-boat feeling into a 40-foot hull,” says Jon Viestenz, product manager for Cruisers’ parent company, KCS International.

With its fully enclosed, climate-controlled main deck living area, the Cantius can extend the boating season. “It’s the best of both worlds — fully heat and air-condition the space or open the patio doors and feel like you’re in an express boat,” Viestenz says.

The layout features two staterooms and two heads. The master stateroom has a queen-size island berth, and an adjoining head with a separate shower. The midship suite’s split-bunk layout converts to a queen-size berth and guests have a private wet head with a separate vanity area.

Other highlights include a standard 13.5-kW genset, a well-lit engine room with 5 feet of headroom and Volvo Penta IPS joystick helm control. Volvo Penta 500IPSG (twin 370-hp gas inboards) push the Cantius at 30 mph, where it gets around 1.6 mpg, Viestenz says. Price with this package is $725,000. The builder also offers IPS450 (330 hp) or IPS500 (370 hp) diesels, or Volvo Penta 370-hp diesels with dual-prop sterndrives.
