Newport 41s (designed by C&C for those that do not know) seem to surprise a lot of people. As a Capital Yachts product, they are often portrayed as inferior quality to Tartans and the like. While this may be generally true (Newports were built to a price point), the N41 has much going for it, as the previous poster has indicated, for a lot less money. They were also the "flagship" of Capital Yachts, so you know the builder had extra pride in them.

I sailed with Captain Greg Daley aboard his N41 "Principessa" from Marina del Rey to Catalina Island a few years ago. Totally impressed with the boat's performance. He also won his division that year in a Southern California racing series to address the racing question.
