Designed by John Alden in 1937 for a discerning owner who wanted an elegant floating home for 2 people able to go anywhere, she became the first pleasure boat ever to be tank tested !

On buying TRADE WIND in 2008, the current owners had a vision to give her everything she needed and deserved having been in commission for a full 70 years. In collaboration with the then still operational J.G. Alden Office in Boston and its head designer Niels Helleberg, they made a plan to make her a model of classic yachting while at the same time meeting the needs of modern lifestyle and seafaring.

Rockport Marine in Maine achieved the enormously complex keel up restoration to the exquisite taste and long experience of the new patrons.  3 years in the shed, close to 20,000 miles at sea and several prizes for best restoration, attest to her meeting all these parameters with bravura and TRADE WIND deservedly takes centre stage wherever she goes, piloted so far by the owner couple without additional crew.
