41AC Bow Thruster

Posted: 12 Jun 2015 - By: julian beere

I would be very grateful for any feedback from Rival 41 owners on the close quarter maneuverability of their boats under power. We are very close to buying a 41AC after a ten year break from cruising and i admit to feeling a little nervous at the thought of handling it under power when entering marinas which we will inevitably do. Our last boat was only 32ft and standing behind the wheel of the 41 feels very different! Our research suggests that several 41s are fitted with bow thrusters which i am told would make things alot more manageable for me my wife and our four young crew!! All comments would be gratefully received.
