John Alden 56ft Margaree Design Swing Keel Yawl
Start Auto SlideShow Full Screen PopUp
This is a true classic, built of individually chosen and felled Huon Pine and Burmese Golden Teak logs. Constructed to exacting standards with no expense spared over a period of 12 years. "Bolero" was launched in 1985. Since then, she has completed a circumnavigation (Australia to Amsterdam non stop 'round the horn) including a number of testing long distance, short handed cruises - Australia to Alaska non stop, Australia to Tahiti and, a 60 day circumnavigation of Australia and numerous South Pacific cruises. Fitted out to an incredibly high standard, this boat would suit the most fastidious buyer and be the envy of all who gaze on her. We have additional photos of the boat for the more serious minded.
