The Neptune 41 is a Dutch-designed, 41' (LOA 44') English-built fiberglass cruising sailboat. The hull and topsides are finished with Awlgrip. She was built in 1979 to Lloyd's 100A1 requirements and has been professionally maintained since. She is ketch-rigged and heavily-built with a large, reliable Perkins engine. The current owners purchased the boat in 1982, lived aboard for 25 years and have cruised her from the Scottish Isle of Skye to Gibraltar, into the western Med, across the Atlantic, through the Caribbean, up and down the East Coast from Florida to Maine and for the last decade in the Pacific Northwest from Seattle to Glacier Bay, Alaska. This past summer they spent 2-1/2 months circumnavigating Vancouver Island. This is a serious, long range cruiser in "Bristol" condition having been actively and generously maintained for safe and reliable voyaging.
The main deck is covered in teak, in excellent condition and it is noteworthy that the decks are solid fiberglass so there are no worries of issues with coring material.

The helm wheel is currently not fitted at the lower steering station and a Dickenson diesel heating stove is installed there. Engine controls and instruments are still functional. Aft of the steering station and opposite the settee is a full-sized chart table with ample flat chart storage and full electronics suite permanently mounted. This main salon features above deck windows with blinds all around for great visibility. The engine and battery compartments are easily accessible under the floor.
Aft to port is the master stateroom with full size double berth, head/shower to starboard and seating area to port. Both heads feature electric quiet flush, fresh water heads. Overhead, above the foot of the large double berth is a compass so the occupant can check heading anytime.
