When Niels Helleberg of Alden Yachts designed the Alden 43/45 to replace the venerable Alden 44 he stayed true to Alden Yachts form with an aesthetically pleasing design and seamanlike cockpit, deck, and interior.  The Alden 43/45 benefits from a major performance improvement with its 5’ 9” shoal draft bulbed fin keel and large, balanced spade rudder.  With a priority on sailing performance and safety, the house is kept narrow and side decks wide.  The 45 version of this design with its traditional overhanging counter stern will have a more seakindly motion and a voluminous stern storage locker.

MISCHIEF is hull no. 2 of the Alden 45 series.  She has a two stateroom, two head interior arrangement with a single pilot berth in the salon.  Her interior is optimized for offshore racing and cruising with crew.  Her first owner sailed her to Europe from New England soon after she was completed.  She was based in the Netherlands and England for a decade.  In 2002 she was sailed back to Rhode Island and spent summers cruising New England and Maine.  In 2003 she competed in the Marion to Bermuda Race.  From 2005 to 2010, she was stored and maintained at Morris Yachts in Maine.  All significant stateside work was performed by Alden Yachts in Rhode Island and Morris Yachts in Maine.  The second owner purchased MISCHIEF in 2010 and she was trucked to Seattle.  She has been cruised locally in the Pacific Northwest for the last three years.  Each winter she's been protected with a full boat cover.    

Inspection will reveal a superbly maintained yacht that has benefited from very knowledgeable and caring owners.   She was just hauled in October of 2013 for annual bottom maintenance and received two coats of Micron Extra.  Her Max prop was greased and the running gear coated with Pettit Zinc Coat Barnacle Barrier.  Interior and exterior brightwork is well maintained.  Hull sides and cabin sides are glossy.  The Westerbeke engine was replaced in 2003 and has been used minimally since.  A bow thruster, diesel forced air cabin heater, Monitor windvane, single sideband radio, and other nice gear allow her to comfortably cruise or race offshore.   A North Marathon 3DL mainsail and genoa were purchased in 2012 and are in “as new” condition.  In 2011 the upholstery was returned to the original supplier, S&S Fabric Products in Rhode Island, for cleaning and service.  New foam was installed in all salon cushions and the master stateroom received a new latex foam cushion.  The same year new clear Lexan was installed in all the hatches, ports, companionway sliders and washboards.  All in all MISCHIEF is a proper yacht in superb condition that will provide any owner with immense pride of ownership.
