The Newport 41, a masthead sloop, was designed by C&C Design and built in the USA by Capital Yachts Inc. There were several versions produced; the original MkI which was derived from the C&C designed Redline 41, the MkII (which is described here), the MkIII and the 41S.

1. Sail Area/Displacement Ratio: 17.5
2. Ballast/Displacement Ratio: 45.6
3. Displacement/Length Ratio: 240
4. Comfort Ratio: 31.8
5. Capsize Screening Formula: 1.7
1. A Sail Area/Displacement Ratio of 17.5 suggests that the Newport 41 will, in the right conditions, approach her maximum hull speed readily and satisfy the sailing performance expectations of most cruising sailors.
2. A Ballast/Displacement Ratio of 45.6 means that the Newport 41 will stand up well to her canvas in a blow, helping her to power through the waves.
3. A Displacement/Length Ratio of 240, tells us the Newport 41 is a moderate displacement cruiser, which means she'll carry all your cruising gear without it having a dramatic effect on her performance. Most of today's sailboats intended for offshore cruising fall into this displacement category.
4. Ted Brewer's Comfort Ratio of 31.8 suggests that crew comfort of a Newport 41 in a seaway is similar to what you would associate with the motion of a moderate bluewater cruising boat - a predictable and acceptable motion for most seasoned sailors.
5. The Capsize Screening Formula (CSF) of 1.7 tells us that a Newport 41 would be a safer choice of sailboat for an ocean passage than one with a CSF of more than 2.0.
