Description: John Alden 56ft Margaree Design Swing Keel Yawl
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.

Accommodation
The interior fitout is luxurious and needs to be seen to be appreciated. Every fitting and trim has been installed to perfection. A spacious galley to port opposite a very functional nav table to starboard leads to a sumptuous saloon area with plush leather upholstered settees. A magnificent Golden teak table adds to the all round feeling of cosy confidence in a yacht well made. Double cabin forward with a bookshelf of library proportions plus two make up saloon singles and a single sea berth finishes off this spectacular interior to perfection.
The fore-peak houses a separate maintenance workshop facility and includes an additional head and vanity with hot & cold water, workbench with vice, lockers and drawers for spares.
