Vineyard Haven, MA, US


SEA CLOUD is Hull #12 and a beautiful example of the Alden 54 mid-cockpit design built in Rhode Island by Alden Yachts to high standards set by the American Bureau of Shipping and built under survey to “+A1 Offshore Yacht Service.” With her shoal draft of only 5’-7” (board up), cruising options are greatly enhanced. She features a spacious two-cabin/two-head layout with an immense owner’s cabin aft, featuring a king-sized centerline berth and separate stall shower, and an over-sized U-berth forward. Furling mainsail, three electric winches and bow thruster make handling her a breeze. SEA CLOUD has also benefitted from many significant upgrades in the past ten years, including new engine, teak decks, carbon rig, sails, electronics, refrigeration, canvas, fabrics and much more. She is presently in excellent condition, enjoyed by only two owners, and awaiting your inspection.
