GAMMON is one of those fortunate boats that has been blessed with very good and caring owners. In 1998 she had a thorough refit at Alden Yachts in Portsmouth, Rhode Island. Shortly thereafter, she was purchased by her present owner, who has again showered her with upgrades, replacements and maintenance rarely found on boats available for sale. The Alden 44 is a timeless design offering shoal draft, superb sailing characteristics and “make sense” engineering.
