About this CUSTOM Van de Stadt 41


Stunning contemporary classic, from the board of Van de Stadt, made flesh in 2006 for comfortable, effortless and very stylish sailing. This Van de Stadt 41 is always the prettiest yacht in any anchorage. She was designed and built to be easy to sail, and to come with all the charm of yesterday with modern construction, and a thoughtful fit out, to make maintaining her a straight forward affair.


RCD Status: The yacht is exempt for the safety requirements of Directive 94/25EC or RCDII (2013/53/EU as appropriate (Recreational Craft Directive.) However it should be little to no problem to fulfil the requirements for category A – “Ocean” (or Cat B – whichever is appropriate).

Hull, Deck & Superstructure Construction:

  • The hull has a core of 32mm thick Red Cedar.
  • Diagonally (+ and - 70°) to the grain of the Red Cedar this core is over laminated with U.D. E-glass and epoxy of approximately 3 mm (3000 gr/m²) for the outer skin, 2 mm (2000 gr/m²) for the inner skin and 4 mm (4000 gr/m²) for the underwater surface.  
  • This is more than the construction plan of the architect prescribed.
  • Floors and engine beds are mahogany over laminated with bi-ax E-glass.
  • At the chain plate area the core is recessed and filled with ca 10 mm Bi-ax E-glass laminate to ensure a perfect load carrying surface for the bolt on chain plates.
  • Construction bulkheads (every 2.1 mtr) are of marine plywood.
  • The deck is foam cored with inserts at deck hardware positions.
  • ALL through deck/hull fittings are executed with compression plugs or back filled with epoxy.
  • Before fittings were finally placed, a thick bead of Sika flex was applied to ensure perfect sealing.
  • Through hull fittings are bronze and fasteners are stainless steel (A4 / 316).
  • All N.D. checking and inspections are allowed, no problem whatsoever.  

Keel & Rudder:

  • The keel is built-up in two parts, the lead ballast part and the steel spacer.
  • The thought behind this was to have choice in draft.
  • By leaving the spacer out, the draft is reduced to 1,46 mtr, and when the spacer is in place the draft goes up to 1,95 mtr.
  • Cast lead ballast keel 4200Kg. Keel spacer 300Kg.
  • Keel bolts 7 x M36 Duplex 14462, SF ≥ 5.

Paint System:

  • At the basis of the paint-system lays the epoxy composite construction.
  • After a first primer, there has been an epoxy based filler applied.
  • Underwater the filler is sealed with an epoxy roll-on coating from the IJsel Coatings followed by a primer and finished with Trilux antifouling from International.
  • Above water the filler layer was sealed-off with two coats of primer followed by two coats of Sikkens polyurethane high-gloss topcoat.
  • On deck the DD topcoat from the IJsel Coatings has been used and where needed anti-slip powder added.
  • For the varnish work the Epifanes systems were used. First build-up with Epifanes PP coating followed by the Epifanes traditional varnish with added UV filter.

Note: As part of the overall plan to keep maintenance work under control, all vertical teak parts are placed on a so called raised seam, to prevent it from standing in direct contact with moisture and water from the deck. What also helps a lot are the various fibre glass moulded patches added to vulnerable places to prevent damage.


Engine & Gearbox:

  • Four cylinder Nanni based on Kubota 50 HP.
  • Type 4220 HE, series nr 216681/30914, yearly serviced.
  • Built year 2002, 1100 running hours @ August 2018.
  • Gearbox Hurth/ZF HBW 250-3 R, ratio 2,75 : 1 series nr 947.50.000.1822250 J.

Maintenance & Performance:

  • Consumption average 2,5 ltr/hour.
  • Yearly maintained, prop shaft inspected 2018.

Propulsion & Steering:

  • Transom hung spade rudder with tiller steering.
  • Wind-pilot self-steering fully functioning and Autohelm tiller pilot not installed.
  • During longer trips the owner installs the Wind-pilot. On normal trips in the home waters there is a simple system of fixing the helm in any desired position which helps with single hand sailing/manoeuvring.
  • Driveshaft 35mm Stainless steel, Profi-seal ceramic shaft seal.
  • Maxprop 21” propeller.
  • A spare bronze fixed propeller has been used for a year using her as motor yacht.

Deck Equipment


The desired gaff rig set-up caused lots of questions and answers hard to find until the owner stepped aboard Marilee, a Herreshoff designed and built NY40 class. The original 1926 design drawings of the spars were on board and answered a lot of questions. Calculating wall thickness, length of unsupported mast panels in relation to the expected forces with modern computer modelling showed that the old “wizard of Bristol” was spot on. Also Herreshoff used mast-strops instead of steel mast-bands with shackles for weight saving aloft. The owner discovered, in an old textbook for master mariners from the 1920’s, also the principle and set-up of mast-strops.

They executed various tests to determine the vertical loads on the wedges to hold the shrouds up.

Cees v Tongeren calculated the required glue surface of the wedges and all is proven to work very well and standing up to the job.

The owner covered the mast-top with a layer of fibre-glass in Epoxy to prevent water ingress and “hardening” of the load-carrying surface.

Especially this surface treatment in combination with the Dyneema strops have shown the ideal marriage between low maintenance, strength and weight saving aloft. 

Further the owner discovered the existence of a nice tapered set of moulds of which Celiot built the gaff. The carbon gaff safes obviously a lot of weight aloft but the biggest improvement is the behaviour of the main in a swell and light airs.

The bowsprit can easily be topped up, Dutch style, to limit harbour and manoeuvring space.
