For the sailor looking for a classic, mahogany wood sailboat in great condition, that sails well and has an electric motor, this beauty is for you! In fact, this sailboat has been requested for photography by the City of New London, a movie and a music video due to its looks.

The Alden Priscilla sails really well. She has a full keel giving her stability and the ability to point upwind really well.  Her solid wood hull helps her cut through waves really well. The Alden Priscilla is one of the first sailboats designed with an aluminum mast and spars and consequently, it has a bigger sail area than other boats from this era that had a wooden mast and even if these other boats had their wooden mast replaced with an aluminum one, they still can’t match the sail area and speed of an Alden Priscilla. And, this sailboat has a cool old-school round boom furling system in which the whole boom twists around and rolls the sail up or down.

The Alden Priscilla class (design number 967) sloop was built for 11 years by the American Marine from 1961- to 1972. Those familiar with the fiberglass Aldens of the1960s will recognize the styling, especially the tear drop ports.

And this sailboat has been retrofitted, taken care of and upgraded. The Mahogany hull had the seams recaulked in the spring of 2020 and the fasteners were replaced in 2016.  A new wood frame was installed under the motor bed in 2020.

The 2016 electric motor is custom-made and installed by a certified Electric Yachts and Oceanvolt installer.  The motor and all electronics are tucked away so that when you look at this boat, all you see are her classic, clean and beautiful lines.

For the sailor looking for a well-cared for wooden sailboat with an electric motor, this is the finest sailboat on the east coast of the United States.  Call us to learn more and come see her!
