One of only thirteen built this classic John Alden Design has been very well cared for by her owners and well appointed for extended bluewater cruising or living aboard. Several recent upgrades throughout including a 2009 re-power to a Yanmar Diesel and a custom cockpit hardtop with full enclosure for year round comfort weather cruising or relaxing dockside.

A note from the seller:
This classic Alden designed center cockpit, ketch has been home to the current owners for 12 years, traveling the east coast from New England to the Bahamas, spending seven years in the Eastern Caribbean. Fawkes is outfitted for single handed sailing, making it possible for a two-person crew to make long passages comfortably. Living away from dock is her specialty. With solar power, a water maker and compost head, pulling hook is unnecessary. Her latest long passage was an eleven-day run from Sint Martin to Beaufort, NC. Fawkes is meant for the sea or at anchor, enjoying crystal blue waters. Newly installed davits make it easy to secure and deploy the dinghy.
The classic tradition of Alden’s deck salon design is evident below with plenty of head room, large salon windows, giving an open feeling, plenty of ventilation and rich mahogany cabinetry brought together with a holly and teak solid cabin salon sole. Living aboard is made easy with abundant storage. A hard bimini, enclosure and lush cushions, turned the center cockpit into additional living space as well as a secure and comfortable helm.
The clipper bow and sleek lines turn heads while the full keel and hull design make Fawkes solid and stable. With care and attention, this classic yacht will be around another 50 years!
