Alden Dolphin 47
This classic Alden designed center cockpit, ketch has been home to the current owners for 12 years, traveling the east coast from New England to the Bahamas, spending seven years in the Eastern Caribbean. Fawkes is outfitted for single handed sailing, making it possible for a two-person crew to make long passages comfortably. Living away from dock is her specialty. With solar power, a water maker and compost head, pulling hook is unnecessary. Her latest long passage was an eleven-day run from Sint Martin to Beaufort, NC. Fawkes is meant for the sea or at anchor, enjoying crystal blue waters. Newly installed davits make it easy to secure and deploy the dinghy.

The classic tradition of Alden’s deck salon design is evident below with plenty of head room, large salon windows, giving an open feeling, plenty of ventilation and rich mahogany cabinetry brought together with a holly and teak solid cabin salon sole. Living aboard is made easy with abundant storage. A hard Bimini, enclosure and lush cushions, turned the center cockpit into additional living space as well as a secure and comfortable helm.

The clipper bow and sleek lines turn heads while the full keel and hull design make Fawkes solid and stable. With care and attention, this classic yacht will be around another 50 years!

This Dolphin is one of only 13 boats that were built from John Alden's design number 1024 in Boothbay Maine. The boat is designed with a full keel providing comfortable long range cruising and good sailing performance at sea and at anchor. 
Fawkes has carried the current owners along the eastern seaboard down the Bahamas and on down to the Caribbean where she spent several years enjoying the islands.  She has been carefully equipped to provide maximum comfort while cruising, including a stern to stern awning that can be installed in manageable pieces to provide protection from the tropical sun.
The two stateroom design provides a comfortable berth forward and an equally comfortable stateroom aft, each with ensuite heads.
Solar power, water maker, and compost head combine to allow almost unlimited cruising range.  Just in cast the wind doesn't blow she has been repowered in 2009.
