1961 Alden Challenger 38 located in New Hampshire for sale

38.5' Alden Challenger 38

New Hampshire

Description: Marguerite is a very rare Alden Challenger 38 originally a yawl, now rigged as a sloop.

The hull was constructed by Halmatic Ltd,(#1048) Portsmouth, England in 1960, then imported to the United States and finished by A. Le Compte Company, Inc. New Rochelle, NY and assigned hull # 32. She is a delight to sail and has taken us up and down the Maine coast many times. She is in need of some detailing, new ceilings at the pilot and v-berths, fairing and Awlgrip from the water line to the toe rail and her bottom paint needs to stripped and refinished.

Vessel Walk-Through:
You will board Marguerite via a wide side deck that leads to a comfortable cockpit, the varnished cockpit combing has been trimmed in raw teak, while the seats and cockpit sole are left in raw teak for traction. Two sets of self-tailing winches handle the primary and spinnaker loads. A canvas dodger protects the cockpit and all lines can be led aft to a main winch and a bank of rope clutches located on the cabin top below the dodger.

Down the companionway to a warm mahogany interior, the nav station and ice chest is to starboard and an L shaped galley to port updated with the an LP stove in new cabinetry and corian countertops. Settees are forward on either side divided by a large table that seats six comfortably. Outboard of the settees are snug pilot berths with lee-boards for safety. The salon contains the original Dutch tiled coal/wood stove adding comfort on those cold spring and fall evenings.

Forward to port is the updated head with laminated walls, mahogany vanity with corian sink and countertop with handheld faucet for bathing. Head is plumbed to a larger holding tank plumbed below the v-berth with a 3-way valve for on deck and overboard waste discharge. Across from the head is a built-in bureau and 2 hanging lockers. Past the head is the V-Berth with sail and groundtackle locker forward. There are two large opening deck hatches (Lewmar Ocean 60s) and 6 bronze opening ports with screens and 3 solar vents for ventilation and light.
