Sigma 41

Does anyone know anything about, or have info about the Sigma 41? One is for sale in my area and can't find much about it. No PHRF rating, build quality, pros/cons, etc...

Thanks

Re: Sigma 41

Sup T? When I was boat searching, I kept coming across a Sigma 41 as well. I liked the look of the boat, and the price was good. But there wasn't much info.

Here's a thread over at YBW with some good info:

When did Sigma yachts cease being built?

Quote:
Sigma Yachts was a marketting division of Marine Projects who built them alongside Moodys to give them a presence in the lucrative cruiser racer/one design market of the late 70s (the first model was, needless to say, the Sigma 33 of 1978). Sigma was merged with Moody in around 1988 and production ceased in 1992 or maybe 1993. Popular models included the 33, 36/360, 38 and 41. Less successful were the 29/292 and 35. The cruising version of the of the 33, the 33c also had limited appeal.

Re: Sigma 41

Still quite a few sigma 33s still racing around in the UK including some one design racing. Likely to be an owners association. Might look there.

Re: Sigma 41

The association with Moody speaks well, unless the Sigmas were downgraded/built to a price point.

They are generally pretty good looking boats and I think have a good rep in Europe.

Re: Sigma 41

Here are some PHRFs from New England:

Quote:
SIGMA 33 144
SIGMA 36 FR 129
SIGMA 41 DK 96
SIGMA 41 DK FR 90
SIGMA 41 DK TM 81
Not slow by any means. The DK is the same as my Hunter 40 @96.

Re: Sigma 41

The one on YW in Wisconson looks to have been re-keeled with a more contemporary bulb keel over the original brochure's typical 80s trapezoid. Nicely proportioned frac rig, the interior looks in need of a tuneup, but the gear looks robust otherwise.

Re: Sigma 41

Good info guys. Thanks.

Smacks- Thanks for phrf #'s. I just pulled out an old phrf book that had it in there.

Love the looks of this boat, just don't know much about them.

I also found a thread on cruiser forum that appears to be that boats owner doing a full re-core of the deck.

Re: Sigma 41

Some info here but I note that the last post was 2008.

I buddy boated with one for a while in the Bahamas in the 90s. Fractional rig, weird flush skin fittings that looked like they were glassed in and at least 8 ft draft. 4 people on board on a one year Atlantic circuit.
