Waterline Boats is proud to announce their new Bracewell line, and the 2017 Bracewell 41 has recently arrived at their Seattle docks. The Bracewell 41 looks like a modern-styled Pacific Northwest trawler that’s ready to cruise. The Bracewell 41 will especially appeal to fans of the Camano 41, for the Bracewell 41 is essentially a modern upgrade to the original design.
The exterior features a prominent open flybridge with a covered cockpit aft and large foredeck. The flybridge has both a full nav station and seating for gatherings. A fixed swim step will be appreciated by paddle sports enthusiasts or swimmers during the summer. The interior is quite spacious and generously lit by the many large windows. Family-style seating sits immediately to starboard upon entry to the cabin, while the full galley and pilothouse are located forward. The cook and the captain will be working side-by-side. A set of stairs forward takes the visitor to the two enclosed berths. The master suite forward has a large island-style berth.
As far as performance is concerned, the Bracewell 41 comes with a Cummins QSB 6.7 480-horsepower engine. The manufacturer is quick to tout that the hullform is said to feature a low center of gravity. The yacht can allegedly cruise effectively at speeds between 8 and 17 knots.
All in all, the 2017 Bracewell 41 looks like she’ll be right at home in the Pacific Northwest. For more information on the 2017 Bracewell 41, check out waterlineboats.com. Current price is $499,388.
