If someone wants a better sailing boat, one that could be more enjoyable to sail but does not want to spend a lot more on a performance cruiser, the Bavaria 41s can be the right solution.
The 41 has a nice well design Farr hull and has now a much better version for ones that want to enjoy as much sailing and cruising, the new 41s.
The boat comes with a bigger mast (50cms), more sail area, a bigger draft (2.30m), a better and deeper rudder, it is lighter, with more and bigger winches and a carbon spi pole. In the end we have significantly better sailing boat, not only faster but more agreeable to sail. If we join that to the much nicer cabin design and a better designed interior (from the 41) we will have a nice boat very hard to beat in what regards what offers: a lot of boat for the money.
The boat will cost about more 20 000 euros than the standard version (without sails). The price 169 220 euros including German VAT is very good even if you have to join about more 8000 euros for decent sails.
Have a look at the interior and storage space here (that is the regular 41 that in this regard is the same as the 41s):
