The Sceptre 41 was designed for two couples to cruise in comfort in the privacy of two cabins, the main salon is raised to provide views of the anchorage through large fixed ports.  Ventilation is wonderful and all opening ports and hatches have bug screens including the companionway.

  • All navigation equipment is duplicated in both the cockpit helm and in the below decks second helm/nav station which provides shelter in inclement weather.
  • Her galley is equipped for a gourmet - from Wolfgang Puck stainless steel cookware to Chicago chef knives…no essential is overlooked.
  • Rather than clambering over the side, PAX offers an aft swim platform that allows crew to step on board from the dingy and the walk-through transom very convenient.  The ease of boarding PAX really stands out, as does the very manageable companionway which has fewer steps and not a steep ladder.
  • PAX is a fast passage maker with oversized 4 speed winches to easily handle trimming.  On her blue water passages she makes 200 nm/24hr runs with ease. Very sea kindly, she goes to weather without burying the rail thanks to her full aft sections.
  • Her anchoring system is handheld push button or foot switch controlled and she has 280’ of chain.
  • For people with some mobility issues, the ease of boarding PAX really stands out, as does the very managable companionway which is fewer steps and not a step ladder.

    The aft swim platform also dramatically enhances anchorages where one can easily swim, sit and dangle their feet in the water or shower/rinse off.

    For those that actually enjoy cooking, the galley is superb, not at all like camping out with a cramped awkward arrangment.

    PAX is very very stiff, not a rail burier- yet she sails at great speed easily…comforting to heal less while  enjoying real performance.
