1998 Alden Flybridge Motor Yacht

Harpswell, Maine


Custom built to legendary, exacting standards, this 56' Alden Flybridge Motoryacht  with factory enclosed flybridge is truly one of a kind.  One step on board, and you will instantly recognize the level of craftsmanship found in only a few yachts offered today.  

Powered by twin Caterpillar Diesel engines with direct drive, and featuring the much lauded C. Raymond Hunt Deep V hull design, this yacht will give her new owners many years of safe, comfortable cruising in style! Her custom enclosed flybridge with thoughtful seating arrangement guarantees the best view on the water, and a place for the whole crew to enjoy time together.  Her gracious salon, two heads, complete galley and three staterooms have been tastefully updated, and she shows like a much newer vessel.  

She's spent the winter in heated indoor storage, being lovingly refit, inspected, and upgraded.  (See details in the listing)  The owners change of plans has provided this opportunity to enjoy this next cruising season in a fresh, turnkey yacht with a pedigree!  Call to make arrangements for a showing!
