The Sceptre 41 is one of the most respected and sensible Northwest cruising sailboats ever built. With a raised salon, one can take advantage of the beautiful scenery without suffering in the elements. The galley is optimally placed near the companionway and on level with the dinette salon area. The cockpit is also sheltered behind a windshield and canvas dodger. A walk-through transom with swim platform makes for easy access to the water, dock or dinghy. Tankage for fuel and water are generous and storage space, both on deck and below, is abundant. Top quality construction details and materials have caused these boats to hold their value over the years. While many Sceptres have remained in the Northwest, others have ventured forth, circumnavigating, rounding the great Capes and providing safe, speedy and comfortable passage for their crews.
Betalgeuse has been cruised lightly and locally here in the Northwest. Her layout and interior details are well conceived. She has a raised salon but unlike many of the other Sceptres does not have a dedicated inside helm station. The forward stateroom is offset pullman and the aft cabin is enclosed. Her teak interior shows extremely well with little sign of wear or use. She is clean and odor free. She is one of the nicer used Sceptre to hit the market.
