1998 Alden 56 Flybridge Motor Yacht

Wickford, Rhode Island



Built for a very knowledgeable owner, this Alden has been cruised from Maine to the Keys. Interior arrangement includes an en-suite owners stateroom and VIP stateroom. An additional room has a berth for another guest or captain. Equipped with all the navigational, safety and comfort amenities expected of a quality builder.

One of the highlights of the Alden 56 is it's performance in a chop. The Hunt designed deep V hull and modest beam makes her a safe and comfortable boat when crossing Buzzards Bay or running down the coast.

Recent updates and servicing of engines and auxiliary systems. Ready to cruise.
