Auk, this beautiful 1970 58′ Alden Boothbay Challenger was designed by John G. Alden and built by the Hodgdon Brothers in East Boothbay, Maine. Only one of 6 ever built, she has been well maintained throughout her life, and has undergone a complete standing rigging refit in 2014, including chainplates. She was repowered in 2001 with a John Deere diesel, and comes with a bowthruster, and recent B&G chartplotter. With a propane cabin heater, and reverse cycle air-conditioning, and a shoal draft with centerboards, she’s an ideal fit for all climates.
Auk sports a three cabin layout, with two seperate heads, with teak and holly throughout. Her raised salon is huge, with plenty of natural light, with a nifty gimbaled salon table for comfortable dining while underway.
She comes with a robust collection of modern electronics, from a B&G chartplotter, B&G radar, SIMRAD autopilot, rudder sensor, GoFree Wi-Fi and others.
She is currently listed at $218,000 in Annapolis, Maryland with a motivated seller.
