1983 Alden Malabar sloop

Fairhope, Alabama

$70,000

For those aficionados of classic sailing yachts the name John Alden is no stranger, and his Malabar sloops are renowned for their enduring style and performance. 

The Malabar XV (Design number 0675) has a unique story.  Originally build in 1938 of teak, mahogany, over oak frames, in 1984-1986 the boat was transformed into a modern classic by stripping her hull of its brass portholes, fittings, and planking then using her frame as a mold was hand layered with sold fiberglass.  The original brass refitted, new aluminum mast and stainless streel rigging, rebuilt Perkins 4-108 diesel, and rewire to modern standards. Even the original hull planking was reused to dress out the interior. She's now fitted with Iso Therm 12v refrigeration, solar [panels, 100 amp inverter, Hydro-vane self steering, tiller auto pilot, and sailing dinghy.

If you want a true classic yacht without the constant maintenance of the wood hull, then this is the boat for you.
