Description: Alden 64 Cutter
Built in 1950 in Newcastle, Australia by S. F. Heaton for his family. 'Nirvana 1' was the first yacht built specifically for the Sydney-Hobart race. Her sturdy hull is made of ironwood and her topsides are rosewood all fastened with 7/16 inch copper rivets to sawn oak ribs then splined and skinned with dynel.

She is beautifully furnished in teak, mahogany and maple below decks providing a lovely, elegant feel which is very bright and airy. Etched glass, butterfly hatches and a custom stained glass ports brighten the saloon and add old-world charm. There is very comfortable lounging around a large U shaped dining saloon forward of the large and well equipped U shaped galley area, and a separate reading cabin just aft of the owners suite forward which has a full queen bed. There is a guest double cabin aft with additional single The cabinetry is a masterclass in joinery.

Nirvana 1 underwent a complete refit from 2006-2008 including rebuilding the interior with the finest materials, the deck glassed over, a new Yanmar 4JH3-HTE 92hp turbo installed was installed along with new plumbing and electrical wiring. Recently the hull was repainted in 2015 and a brand new mast and rigging was installed 2021, as was a a new bimini dodger and headsail

Other notable inventory items include:

Complete Raymarine navigation system including autopilot, radar, AIS.
Watermaker.
Fresh water deck wash.

20hp Tohatsu only 20hrs.
Stainless steel anchor with 100m chain and 100m warp (replaced 2021).

Nirvana 1 presents beautifully and is ready for a new owner to step straight in and go cruising locally or out to the Pacific, maybe even win a classic regatta as she just did in late 2021.

This is a true classic gem to look at and an absolute pleasure to sail.
