Halekai is a luxurious, semi-custom sailing yacht, designed by John G. Alden, Inc. and built in Portsmouth, RI to the rigorous standards of American Bureau of Shipping-A1 offshore certification. She's a proven world cruiser, having earned the rare honor of completing a circumnavigation. Alden Yachts is a renowned top of the line yacht builder since 1909, known for rugged construction, superior joinery, high quality equipment and speed. She was customized by her current (and only) owners for self-reliant world cruising and outfitted specifically for their ten year circumnavigation. They refer to her as the “ultimate cruising boat,” based on their extensive blue water experience sailing aboard their two previous boats.
"Halekai" has been meticulously maintained and constantly upgraded to the highest standards. The dark green hull was awl-gripped and the diesel engine was rebuilt during a $50,000 refit in 2011/12. A complete electronic refit was done in 2019. The layout consists of a large chain locker/storage compartment with watertight door, forward guest stateroom with head/shower, main salon, nav station, walk-in workshop, walk-through galley, and aft master stateroom with head/shower.
Due to her partially enclosed center cockpit from which they can set and adjust the roller-furled sails, they "never needed foul weather gear in 120,000 miles of sailing.”
YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS THIS BOAT! She's the perfect world cruiser for a couple or family, and she has the experience and pedigree to prove it. Her stunning lines and graceful curves speak to her performance at sea, and the modifications that her owners have made to her have made her a self-contained "island" where you can be fully self sufficient.
Basically, all the work has been done for you to make this boat the ideal world cruiser. All you have to do is provision and set sail.
