WEST OF THE MOON is the only Alden Caravelle built at Roger Morse's boatyard in Thomaston, Maine. She was built in 1969 and is believed to have had only three owners during her 47 years. Her present owner purchased her in 1998 and has maintained her carefully. Please note that her hull was recently Awlgripped white. The teak interior joinery is exquisite and these "Classic" yawls are well-known for their fine sailing characteristics, even winning Bermuda races in their class. WEST OF THE MOON has had a recent significant price reduction. Please call us if you wish to get aboard and thank you for your interest.
