History

This gorgeous Alden 47' Dolphin  is a John Alden designed, Hodgdon Bros. built, staysail (cutter rigged) ketch, launched at Boothbay Harbor, ME in 1974.

She is a full keel with cutaway forefoot, heavy displacement, center cockpit vessel with vast amounts of stowage and sufficient tankage for extended cruising in substantial comfort. 

Marguerite is number 8 of 13 Alden Dolphins built. The original owner sailed her to Europe earning the New York Yacht Club Cruising Award in 1988. Her second owner was a retired Marine Corps officer who cruised her extensively from Nova Scotia to the Bahamas. 

Her third (current) owner is a licensed captain that has worked in yacht maintenance for many years. He has taken her to the Florida Keys, the Abacos and New England. Marguerite is consistently maintained in “ready-for-sea” condition and is invariably singled out in any anchorage for her beautiful lines and seaworthy appearance.

Sea kindly hull form.

A fine entry forward, a long waterline, and 35,000 lb displacement, means "MARGUERITE" delivers a fast, comfortable ride.  Averaging 150 km/day on a passage.

Her hull depth provides room for twin 100 gal water tanks, and 200 gals of fuel in two tanks.
