The MAYAN is an absolutely gorgeous JOHN G. ALDEN 1947 designed 59' centerboard schooner owned by the famous DAVID CROSBY of the '60s rock group The Byrds and later Crosby Stills & Nash. CROSBY has owned this beautiful schooner since 1968 and has maintained her to the highest standards. She has always been maintained by a professional crew. MAYAN is by far one of the prettiest classic sailing yachts in the world today. MAYAN'S interior is absolutely exquisite, built of hand selected mahogany from Belize. Her center board keel allows her to cruise into shallow anchorages that this size yacht normally would never see. With her wide beam and her turned bilges she heels far less than her narrower counterparts. Between 2005 and 2006 the 74' LOA MAYAN underwent a very extensive restoration by Wayne Ettel in Wilmington, California that included replacing 70% of her frames and all her teak deck planking. She also had all of her electrical wiring replaced. Her refit cost over $700,000.00 US Dollars. MAYAN is the sailing yacht that has been so much a part of David Crosby's music, life and legend. "After 40 years of sailing and writing many of my best songs aboard, I have reached the point where I must let her go," says the 68 year old musician. Crosby wrote many of his songs on the Mayan below deck in the main cabin. Some of these songs include 'Wooden Ships', 'Page 43' and 'Carry Me'. If you would like to own an incredible one of a kind piece of maritime history that sails like a dream MAYAN is the yacht for you.  The Mayan just had a very extensive survey done by in our opinion the best wooden boat surveyor on the West Coast, Kent Parker.  (survey done in August, 2011)  This  survey reflects just how well David Crosby has taken care of his fine yacht.
