Maintained to the highest level by a very experienced yacht owner, WINK has been continually updated and improved over the past seven years, rendering her “state of the art”. One of only three 40’ Express Cruisers built by Alden from the 46’/49’ hull mold, she has extra beam and hull volume rarely found in a 40’ boat that provides the owner with plenty of room below for two staterooms, a spacious galley, a comfortable head and a separate shower plus a spacious bridge deck with amazing storage and a real engine room. This also has made her a very solid, incredibly seaworthy boat very comfortable running long distances and offshore. She is an extremely comfortable 40’ Yacht!
WINK is one of the nicest Alden powerboats this office has seen. She was built for a very knowledgeable New England yachtsman who was a shareholder in Alden and who always had custom Alden designed and custom-built Alden sail and power yachts. For her first twelve years she only had very light summer usage for 3-4 months per year. She spent her winters in a nice clean shed. She has always been maintained with an open checkbook. It is now time for a new owner to purchase her and derive from her the kind of enjoyment she has been built and maintained to generate. This is a truly unique opportunity to purchase a proper, well-built yacht at a fraction of replacement cost.
We acquired WINK in 2012 to cruise New England waters on a schedule, spend extensive time in Maine, go down and up the Intercoastal Waterway and cruise in the Bahamas. In between, she has spent winters north in a heated shed maintained to the “nth degree” as well as continually upgraded and improved. After three round trips on the ICW and winters spent in Florida and the Bahamas, we have covered a lot of ground and accomplished all we set out to do. Operating from the end of April until the end of October for years and years, we have run 1,900 hours and enjoyed cruising both by ourselves and with another couple aboard for 7 to 12 days. We have also enjoyed continually maintaining and upgrading a true Alden gem. We originally had a five-year plan. Now seven years later, it is time to move to the next step, having achieved everything we set out to do with WINK. She is amazing!!!
