66' Alden Malabar Classic Ketch
Incredible opportunity to own a custom builit classic John Alden designed Ketch maintained to the highest standards by her owners and carrying MCA certification.
S/Y Desiderata is a sister to Malabar XIII – originally designed by naval architect John G. Alden in 1945. Ketch-rigged for efficiency and easy handling under sail, 66′ Desiderata was designed for pure speed during racing and comfort while at anchor.
"Desi" - as she is foundly known has had extensive refits - including the interior, in 1997 and 2013 - also carries a new, classic designed 10ft wooden sailing/rowing dinghy.
