$60,000 of 2014/15 Upgrades & Improvements
Hull & Mast Paint, New Bow Thruster & Refinished Bottom
CARA LYNN is a very well maintained and equipped
Alden 46 that was designed and built by one of New England's highest
quality semi custom builders. The current and second owners of CARA
LYNN have made the ongoing investment in upgrades and proper
service. Her classic profile with aft cockpit is a standout wherever
she cruises. This exceptionally strong, sea kindly performance
cruising yacht has an exquisite two stateroom varnished teak interior
and is very well equipped for extended shorthanded offshore cruising.
Her shoal draft keel with centerboard allows access to many more
sailing areas and harbors.
Accommodations include a very comfortable main salon, spacious
galley, wide navigation center, large master suite forward with double
V berth with ensuite head with separate stall shower, aft guest cabin
with convertible queen, and guest/day head is conveniently located
adjacent to the companionway.
Recent upgrades in 2014/2015 include the addition of a bow thruster,
2 new heads (one electric), new holding tank, bottom and keel
refinished and painted and unstepping, disassembling and inspecting
rigging and repainting mast. Also the hull was Awl Gripped and the
hydraulic system upgraded. The approximate cost of the 2014/15
upgrades was $60,000.
include Seafrost holding plate refrigeration, full rudder bearing
service in 2008, North MPS with sock (2006), Northstar 952 GPS
plotter with cockpit repeater, new headliners throughout, and
rebedded deck hatches, genoa tracks and opening ports.
For sailors looking for a beautiful, proven, high quality, semi
custom, hand crafted, performance cruising design, that is fast and
sea kindly, the Alden 46 Cara Lynn is worthy of a serious look. She is
one of the finest 40'-50' semi custom production yachts ever built and
is one of Alden's most popular designs. The cost to replace her today
would be approximately $1.2 million if built by an established New
England yard. Her large aft cockpit, wide side decks and foredeck make
her a pleasure to sail. The sea-kindly hull and shoal draft keel
design and spacious interior arrangement offers superior safety and
comfort for offshore passagemaking or coastal cruising. Cara Lynn has
a great equipment inventory, many upgrades and is in excellent
condition ready to cruise.
