FEARLESS is just as at home exploring the world as she is racing around the buoys or entertaining friends and family. Thanks to the design efforts of Neils Hellenberg and Alden Yachts, FEARLESS is one of only a few luxury sailing yachts to meet each of these specific requirements.
With the help of the builder, Eric Goetz, FEARLESS has proven herself to be quite successful in big boat racing, without compromising any of the onboard comforts one expects from an Alden designed yacht. In fact, she can be quickly modified from cruiser to racer, as her design incorporates such features as removable coffee grinders, cockpit table, and manual winches. Her carbon fiber spar and Park Avenue carbon boom allow for a powerful, fully battened mainsail configuration that is easy to handle short handed.
FEARLESS has been professionally maintained and captained since her refit in 2006 at NEB. Her refit included a new Cat engine, Northern Lights generator, fresh and black water systems, hull side paint, and electronics. In the last two years she has had her spar and boom painted and serviced, interior and exterior upholstery replaced, sail inventory upgraded with Quantum, and much more. Additional details of past and present refits available.
Featured in "The Worlds Greatest Sailboats", Ferenc Mate says the following about FEARLESS...
"As for the 72, rarely has the center cockpit solution been resolved so well - there is a smaller working cockpit aft, and a large lounge of a center cockpit, with a great U-shaped settee and a fold down dining table. Best of all, her profile, has remained as sleek, uninterrupted and beautiful as all of their yachts."
As the current owner is moving up, this is a great opportunity to enjoy one of the greatest all around sailing yachts of her size built to date!
Fearless was designed with two interchangeable keel configurations. Her current setup utilizes the deep draft keel (12'-6"), but it can be removed to accommodate a shallow draft keel (9'-6"). Please call to discuss the details.
