General Details

 AMERICAN BEAUTY is by far the best maintained and most completely equipped example of this classic, time-honored design currently in commission anywhere. $40,000+ in maintenance and upgrades recently completed at New England Boatworks in response to a July, 2012 survey. A January, 2013 survey, detailing all work is now available. Everything has been done to make her immediately ready for an evening sail, a Bermuda race or an extended voyage.



Starting forward there is a full width double V-berth with custom changing seat with a drawer below. There is extensive shelving with a hanging locker to port and drawers and lockers opposite.  Mattresses are high density foam.   Moving aft to the salon, to port there is a comfortable L-shaped settee with pilot berth outboard. Storage is below. A solid teak drop leaf centerline table providing comfortable dining for four people plus two more on the opposite and to starboard full length bench settee.  There is storage above the settee and further locker storage outboard. The salon settees slide out to create excellent sea berths or extra sleeping accommodations. The forward companion way leads to this cabin. Moving aft and to starboard we find the galley.   To port of the centerline galley and accessible from both the salon and the aft stateroom is a large head and shower unit with plenty of storage and solid teak grating throughout, as well as a full length mirror.   The aft stateroom can be entered from the galley, from the head or from the aft cockpit companionway. To port is a double berth with drawers and lockers forward and underneath of the berth.  To starboard is a hanging locker and full sized, aft facing chart table and navigation station area and navigation station with dedicated helms seat and further storage. There is a bookshelf outboard above the navigation area and three drawers under the navigation desk. Centrally is a bench with storage drawers above and a large floor space for changing.     In the Alden yacht tradition the whole of the interior is finished in the highest quality teaks, fittings and furnishings using only the best craftsmanship to give her a warm traditional feel throughout.  The sole is solid teak and rock maple.  Brass on black swedge locks instead of standard finger catches throughout.
