PDQ 41 Power Catamaran
Blue Water Cruiser
cruising at speeds of 17-18 knots.
The PDQ 41 design is based on all the learning experiences of the PDQ 34 coupled with extensive computer aided design and testing efforts. The PDQ 41 is the most fuel efficient boat of this class ever built and yet her performance will knock your socks off.
The walk-around bed on the PDQ 41 is surrounded by full-size windows and is located on the saloon level. In fact, the master suite also occupies the entire starboard hull. This provides a tremendous amount of storage and comfort for live-aboard cruising. With the queen-size bed in the master suite, a galley big enough to be called a kitchen, and a very large shower in the master head, the PDQ 41 was designed for comfortable living and long distance cruising.
The boat can be boarded from the transom steps in each hull, and there are handrails to ease that side-step motion. There are also two other access gates on each side deck, so there are really good options for getting on and off this cat in varying tidal and docking situations. Thirty-inch-high rails surround the side decks, foredeck, and aft cockpit, and one feels very secure walking around the boat. Additional handrails along the cabin eyebrow add extra security when under way. And the 14-inch wide side decks allow easy movement forward and back to the cockpit.
Five steps lead from the aft cockpit to the flybridge, with sturdy handrails assisting movement up to the boatdeck and upper helm. The radar arch is hinged and hydraulically driven to lower for bridge clearance and is perfect for satellite television, radar, and the various antennas. Also on the spacious flybridge is a built-in outdoor cooking area with barbecue, sink, ice maker, refrigerator, and storage, perfect for a relaxing evening of grilling and lounging.
The interior lower helm with excellent visibility is great for running the boat in lousy weather. The helm console has plenty of room for all the electronics. Forward of the helm is the spacious salon with plenty of seating and unhindered panoramic views. The open and connected galley is on the port side and has counter space on both sides and features a three-burner Princess stove, a microwave/ convection oven, a Nova Kool refrigerator/ freezer, and double stainless steel sinks.
Excellent visibility, great ventilation and brightness creates an inside space you can truly live in. Ease of movement from flybridge to cockpit to foredeck is achieved by purposeful, safe design found through out the PDQ 41. It's no wonder that these boats are seldom on the used market and hold their value exceptionally well.
