Lemolo II
Sceptre 41
$165,000 USD
41ft 0in

The Sceptre 41 has set the standard for a do-it-all cruiser for decades. Designed by Hein Driehuyzen and built in British Columbia, the Sceptre has features that years later were adopted by other designers and builders.

Usable storage is one of the Sceptre’s great strengths and is the envy of most other cruisers. Cabinetry was designed for the serious offshore cruiser, where food and other items can be stored close at hand yet secured away. The raised salon opens up to provide ample and accessible long term storage. The galley, head (with shower) and sleeping cabins are well thought out for one or two-couple cruising.

Sceptres are well known for their rugged and smart construction. Structural components are built into the cabinetry, providing strength without being obtrusive.

Lemolo II is a pilothouse version, with a very usable inside steering station. Alaska cruisers can come in from the wet and cold into the salon, yet still have great visibility and light. Swiftsure Yachts is familiar with Lemolo II from previous sales to happy customers. Her dark blue hull still gleams.

Lemolo II’s interior lives far larger than her 41-feet might suggest. A raised salon layout often cuts down on usable living space, but the Sceptre 41 makes excellent use of all her hull volume, providing exceptional tank capacity, storage space and living accommodations. Her roomy salon, large nav station, U-shaped galley, spacious head with separate shower stall and two ample sized staterooms is perfectly configured for long term cruising or living aboard. The interior is finished in satin varnished teak with teak trim accents around hatches, portlights and in the head and shower stall. Her cabin sole is thick traditional teak and holly. Her headliner is white vinyl panels fastened at their perimeters with teak battens. Her interior is very bright as a result of her large raised cabin house windows, numerous hatches and hull side ports. All opening ports and hatches are Lewmar.

The cabin is heated by a Webasto hydronic (hot water circulating) heater with thermostat controls for the master stateroom, head, salon and guest stateroom.

The forward stateroom is an enclosed cabin that features a Pullman style berth offset to starboard with a removable insert. There is excellent storage under the berth. A shelf runs along the starboard hull side above the bunk while teak slats, offering a nice accent to the white finish on the port and starboard sides. Two reading lamps are located at the head of the berth with one aft. Three drawers are located beneath the aft end of the berth. To port is a small dressing settee bench seat. Aft of the settee is a tall hanging locker. Two opening ports in the hull sides and a large foredeck hatch provide excellent ventilation and natural light. The hydronic heat is plumbed to this cabin. The forward cabin has private access to the head and shower.

The head with separate shower stall is located aft of the master stateroom to starboard. The compartment is finished in white molded fiberglass, white laminate and teak trim. Teak grates cover the draining sumps in both the head and shower spaces. In the head, a counter with porcelain sink is located forward and outboard. There is a large locker below. Outboard along the hull side is a large mirrored cabinet with shelves. Aft of the counter is the Jabsco manual head. Hydronic heat is plumbed to the head. There are also towel racks/grab bars located on the aft bulkhead. The separate shower stall is located forward, with a curtain separating the space. A seat is located outboard.

Across from the head to port along the passageway to the salon is the raised pilot berth. There is massive storage area with a large hanging locker and four drawers. An additional locker and large shelf are located above.

Lemolo II’s raised salon/pilot house features a dinette to starboard. The dinette itself drops down to make a double berth. The aft edge of the dinette settee also serves as an aft facing seat for the large navigation table. The AC and DC breaker panel plus Raymarine GPS are located at the navigator’s table. There is a long book case and two cabinets above and outboard of the dinette seatback on the starboard side. Storage space beneath and outboard off the settee seats is ample. There is also large storage beneath the main cabin sole itself. To port, there is a short settee. The below deck helm seat is just forward of this settee with a tall narrow storage locker located under the seat itself. The below deck steering wheel is solid teak. The Raymarine radar/chartplotter, B&G electronics and VHF radio are located at the helm. Outboard of the helm seat and settee is a long book shelf and cabinets. The view from the salon is exceptional, and excellent light is provided by the large windows and two smaller skylight windows above.

The U-shaped galley is aft and to port. Fiddles surround white countertops. Forward and inboard is a large two bin stainless sink with single lever faucet with built in filter, freshwater hand pump and saltwater hand pump. A large locker space is located beneath this sink with a trash locker that opens on the inboard side. Outboard of the sink is a deep top loading dry storage locker with shelves — more than ample for many weeks of provisions. Aft is a three burner Force 10 propane stove/oven with broiler. There is a locker beneath for pots and pans. Outboard there are two sliding door lockers. Just aft of the stove is another smaller top loading dry storage locker with three drawers below. A very large top loading fridge/freezer is located aft. There is a small shelf above. Four drawers inboard of the fridge provide additional storage.

The guest stateroom is located to starboard of the companionway. A double quarter berth extends aft. At the forward end of the berth is a small sink with a locker under. There is a hanging locker at the forward end of the cabin. Reading lamps and an overhead light provide illumination at night while three opening ports also provide natural light and ventilation.

Hull and Deck

Stunning dark blue gel coat hull with white boot and double cove stripes. The deck has molded-in nonskid in a contrasting light grey color. The T-shaped cockpit is very well conceived. Protected from the elements by a windshield, and newer Iverson dodger and connecting canvas, one can comfortably sail or lounge. Settee backs are contoured and high. Primary winches are located adjacent the steering wheel on the cockpit coaming.

Access to the water is provided with a fold-away helmseat and walk-through transom. A teak line storage box is cleverly located at the bridge deck. All sail control lines are led aft to the cockpit. There are three cockpit lockers for storage and access to engine and machinery. To port is a large locker with steps allowing one to climb below. Port side and aft engine access is provided through a removable panel. Two more lockers are aft. The propane locker is housed in the transom along with the fresh water bathing shower.

A mast at the stern houses the radar, communications antennae, wind instruments and gps antenna.
