Cons:

This is a classic Phillip Rhodes design originally built as the BountyII built by a company named Coleman Plastics on the west coast. Later, Pearson bought the molds and had Mr.Rhodes improve the design. Some changes are: increased the freeboard height, moved the mast aft a bit, changed to lead ballast vice iron. I purchased my boat, hull#4, in Nov '96. This boat is fast, seakindly, and fairly stiff. Easy to singlehand. Dimensions are: L:40'10";LWL:28'; B:10'3"; D:5'8"; Dis:19,800lbs; Bal:8350lbs; SA:663sqft. I understand only fifty were built by Pearson. The Rhodes41 also sails well with only the main on all points of sail. Most, if not all, were outfitted with an Atomic-4 gas engine with a 2to1 reduction. I'll keep my Atomic-4 till it dies! It performs well and easy to maintain. Tank capacities are: (1)forty gal monel fuel tank and (2)forty gal monel freshwater tanks located in the bilge of this full keel vessel. It would be a treat to hear from other Rhodes-41 owners. This boat is bulletproof, yet has a sheerline for the eyes!
