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.
SEA CLOUD sleeps four in two spacious private cabins, plus an additional 3-4 in main salon in pilot berth and two extendable settees. Interior joiner work is hand-crafted solid teak and veneers finished with satin varnish. Cabin soles are solid teak and holly (refinished 2018), hull ceilings are varnished ash and overheads are removable fabric panels. Interior fabrics were all tastefully re-done in 2017, including fitted sheets, covers and a custom king size innerspring mattress aft. Lee cloths for all berths.
