The interior of the Sydney 41 is a departure from the traditional sport boat. Her layout is very accomodating for nights aboard whether you are doing a long distance race down the coast, or cruising the islands with the family.
The master cabin is located forward with a large double V-berth, hanging locker, and en-suite head. The main salon consists of a Large U-shaped dinette to port with a settee across to starboard. The interior cushoins were replaced in 2007 and the dinette table base was replaced with one custom built from teak in 2009. Aft of the dinette area is a very functional L-Shaped galley with a dual basin stainless steel sink, new LPG Force 10 oven with double burner stove, and large ice box. Dierctly across from the galley is the navigation station complete with electronics and plenty of storage. The rear section of the boat is configured with additional sleeping accomodations and plenty of storage. The starboard side a large cabin with double berth and an additional pipe berth for a third person. The port side is a large garage area with two removable pipe berths which is an ideal configuration, adaptable for whatever requirements you have for your voyage.

The hull is a composite construction using Kevlar E-glass biaxial fabric, vinylester and epoxy resins and foam coring of varying thickness. The deck has a PVC core, with laminate and high-density foam supporting the flat areas beneath load-bearing deck fittings. The main structural bulkhead is solid fiberglass and the secondary bulkheads are composite. A fiberglass floor, coupled with the longitudinals, forms a structural grid in the bilge. The molded interior liners, with unidirectional fibers, stiffen the hull and help support the rig load. The high-lift, steel keel section has a lead bulb dangling more than 8 feet below the waterline. The externally fastened keel is attached to the hull with stainless steel bolts and is supported by a large, recessed backing plate. The balanced spade rudder is a composite construction around a tubular stainless steel stock.
The Cockpit is large, deep, and well set up for racing. All lines are led aft for easy accesss. The wheel is oversized for excellent control of the helm when seated in any position. The deck housing has a low profile allowing for a clear and open view of all points forward. All comings are curved and provide a great deal of comfort when seated and moving about. The side decks are wide and flat with limited obstructions making for excellent footing for crew when working on deck.
