Enchantress 41' Pilothouse Sloop Designed By Frank Stapelmann

Updated: Aug 2

Enchantress is a Frank Stapleman 41' sloop that was launched at Schooner Creek Boat Works' facility on the Columbia River in Portland, Oregon in 2012. She was designed as a collaboration between brothers Jack and Frank Stapleman. She is a pilothouse sloop custom designed for motorsailing. Entry is gained through a custom T-top with a sliding hatch on Harken rollers. She has twin interior helms and a removable tillar arm in the 10’ open transom cockpit.


Enchantress is built of yellow cedar planking with red cedar veneers on diagonal with epoxy and fiberglass. Her full rig mast carries a Doyle sail, an in-boom furling main, and a furling cutter. Her fixed bowsprit can carry flying sails. She is powered by a 74 hp Volvo D275. The decks are finished with bronze deck hardware forged at the Port Townsend Foundry.  


The interior is of quality yacht finish, with mahogany details accenting the wood constructed liner around a forward horseshoe dinette that folds into a V berth. The aft quarters contain a comfortable stateroom for the captain.
