Re: Sigma 41

Are you still looking at her T? I'm interested to hear what you think of her when you check her out. That new Yanmar looks pretty tasty.

Sigmas seem pretty rare on this side of the pond.

Re: Sigma 41

I'm very interested. Not sure I can make it happen right now though. Going to head up and have a look next week.

Re: Sigma 41

Have no knowledge of that particuliar boat but in ireland I raced on both the fractional and masthead version . Fractional was always a quicker boat .was many years ago so don't know much more . This particuliar boat looks like the interior wood was redone as any sigma I ever saw the wood was much lighter .this looks like it was stained and not to good in my opinion .i could be wrong .i am half considering going looking at it as I'm in chicago and am considering selling our boat .seem like a pretty good price

Re: Sigma 41

Even though I AM sailboatdata.com, and here is the page, SIGMA 41 sailboat specifications and details on sailboatdata.com,
and I don't normally express an opinion about one particular boat over another,
I personally chartered a SIMA 41 more than 20 years ago for more than a week. It was a US model with a masthead rig. This model was obviously competing with the Swans of the time, so it had teak decks, and a very 'woody' interior. On deck, winches of every size, were not lacking.
We sailed in a variety of conditions, including 2 days when it blew more than a solid 30 knts. It always performed well, was always in control, and at the time, it seemed very fast, especially to windward. The interior was comfortable, though maybe not of a style that was exactly to my liking.
I have no idea how they have held up over the years.

Good eye. The interior wood apparently had some water staining... and current owner tried to do some "touch up". Price is pretty good*. but there are some interesting issues. I think you'd have to go into it as being a bit of a project boat.

Re: Sigma 41

Would agree it would be a project boat . I have done already 2 full refits on wood powerboats on behalf of my boss and have just done a lot on my own tartan 31 which I don't realy want to sell but if the bones of this sigma were ok I may be persuaded . That extra space would nice .

If you look at her would love to hear your thoughts

I'd be happy to pass on anything I find out. I'm thinking its probably more of a project than I want right now, but I can't not go look at her...

Re: Sigma 41

Just a quick follow-up: I drove by and had a quick look at this boat yesterday. Didn't schedule an appt, was just in the area and stopped by. She looks great from ground level. (She's stored on the hard right now.) I was a little baffled by finding 3 x 3/8" holes drilled thru her keel and a fair amount of sharpie marks on the hull with measurements and a 5' line drawn on the keel. Looks to me like owner is thinking of shortening the keel to be able to get it to his current mooring.

I climbed up on her to have a look at the decks since they were my biggest area of concern since they had had a DIY peel and replacement. Well.... the finished project looks a littled like one of my kids school projects. The glass was uneven and "rough". Definitely not the look it had from the factory. walking around on deck it felt like there was a bit of give on the port side...

I think its a great boat but I think I'd rather have one with a little moisture and/delam that I had to deal with, than one that has been "fixed" by a previous owner. Don't think this one will be following me home anytime soon.

I sailed for 3 seasons on the Sigma 41 for sale in WI. Both before and after the new keel. It was an incredible boat that I delivered each year from Northern Michigan to the North Channel. With the wind above 20 Kts and two reefs in, the boat was perfectly balanced and would consistently be above 8Kts even when close to the wind. Probably because of the deep keel. The keep was replaced after the owner hit a rock causing major structural damage. It was shortened and a bulb was added. Still sailed great.

My young children loved the pilot berths. The rig was very easy to sail. Probably my favorite racer/cruiser of all time next to the J42, though there are faster boats today. But hey it is 30 years old.

The teak deck has been replaced probably as it had separated from the under flooring. Necessary, but a shame as they were beautiful looking.
