The Gozzard 41 was designed about 10 years ago. It's hull was a redesign of earlier Gozzards and results in more performance.
Subsequently, the G44, and G36>G37 were given the new hulls.
The G41 at this year's show is new as far as the interior was tweaked a bit. There is talk of a Raised Deck Saloon model G42 which can be previewed on their website, with a commodious aft cabin with standup headroom and a saloon where, while seated, one can look out large windows.
It is a bit more old. Actually the Gozzard 41 was designed by Ted Gozzard back in 1986, so it is a 25 old design.

I find the boat beautiful in a traditional way and I would hate to see it spoiled with a deck house.
The hull has far as I know it is basically the old hull, even if I liked to see that changed, a bit like Halberg Rassy has made with its boats.
Ronbo, do you know in what consists that hull modification you are talking about? I don't think that is something serious because the displacement of the boat and the ballast are exactly the same they had 25 years ago. Can you post a picture of it?
That's what I don't like on the Gozzard. With all new stronger, lighter materials and new building techniques, the boat still weights as munch as the 25 years old original one. Nothing seems to have changed for them, at least if I am not wrong about the "new" hull design.
But one thing that is been changing, very little but always for better is the interior. This Ted Gozzard interior is one of the most innovative of its time, so much that today is still a very modern one, an open space one with the Saloon on the bow (convertible in bed) and a huge galley.
I love it and it is a pity they don't give this boat the hull it deserves, one as modern as the interior.
